C'mon Bob...Put Some Heart into It
- Mayoral challenger Bob Fioretti is urging his supporters to sign petitions demanding that Mayor Rahm Emanuel “restore the public trust by refunding” $7.7 million in fines generated by red-light cameras after the timing of yellow lights was reduced from 3 seconds to 2.9 seconds.
“The mayor said he has not “made a judgment” on whether to refund drivers the $7.7 million in tickets that were racked up after his administration lowered the length of yellow lights,” the alderman wrote in an email to his supporters.
“The reduction in the length of yellow lights resulted in 77,000 tickets! Tell the mayor that he should restore public trust by refunding the money that was a result of his administration lowering the yellow light length.”
An e-mail? Talk about your invisible campaigns. And then this?
- On Monday, Fioretti attended opening day of City Council budget hearings, but did not ask a single question — not even about the timing of yellow lights.
Looking more and more like Bob was the plant to split the anti-Rahm vote and guarantee the 9.5 digit midget a runoff.
