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.

F--k Fioretti. Mediocre alderman will be an even worse mayor.
Back to the drawing board.

Sure. Fioretti the Plant. What else could he be?? He's a lost cause. He's just looking to be given another job.

This toss was called before the dice stopped rolling SCC!

Fuck it then... Elect Fioretti then stand back and watch The Machine spontaneously disassemble itself.

No incumbent sits in the chair for more than one term.

"OK... Time's up... Get the fuck out. Send in the new guy..."

Do a forensic audit at the beginning and end of each term to see who gets marched to the hanging tree for fiscal malfeasance and which aides and underlings get shoved against a wall of sandbags for aiding and abetting the same.

Only when there's the will to investigate, prosecute and subject rotten asses to punishment with teeth like jagged mirror glass will Chicago ever be salvaged as a place where an upright middle class can thrive again.

A city of neighborhoods.
Not a whore house and playground
for government sponsored corporatists hellbent
on using clout and political connections for the redirecting of taxpayer treasure to THEIR pockets.

Rahm hasn't spent a fucking nickel on taking care of the taxpayers.

He HAS devoted much time, energy and political capitol extracting revenue from what's left of Chicago's formerly robust (but thick-headed like a m/fer) middle class and lavishing it on his corporate buddies and The Catered To Constituency.

"Why are you coppers so angry, mean and hateful for no good reason?"

Well, I should have read this topic before I commented on the first topic regarding police hiring and Fioretti. Disregard that other post, folks!!!!

Fioretti is just going to do anything not to get elected. I forsee a news conference where he soils himself on purpose in full view of the cameras.

Time for a Republican Mayor to really stir the pot in this town! Rahm is so hated by the people, that a Republican would have a chance to win the 5th floor of City Hall. Come guys, give it a real shot?!

I heard Neely talk what a goof she was saying she was not picked by Quinn because she's a black woman and how hard she has it! Lol another racist, let's see Stephanie burke lost his city paid d-3 police security (valet) service but you played the card and kept yours making sergeants pay getting sergeants pension with lots of overtime! The city clerk Susie Mendoza requested the same detail as the clerk always had a detail but drives herself after being denied! Eddie burke lost his city paid detail but hired retired coppers to drive him at 1/3 the city paid detail that you have Stephanie!

Wait Neely were you not the one who went and sued or threatened to sue mike shields former foo president after he called you out for getting campaign cash from pension fund managers? Maybe are you Neely being looked into by the Feds for this? Shields gets bounced out for in a circus atmosphere and you want sympathy no sorry don't go away mad just go away thank you!

Let's hope the next city treasurer shows fiscal responsibility and removes that expensive detail and puts all those full duty officers back on the streets what a joke?

Well plotted by Rahm if Fio' is a plant. Karen Lewis has the chops to stand up to Rahm way before any intention to make a mayoral run. You don't hear diddly from PrizedWrinkle anymore or is the media silencing any one alderman from speaking up?
Where's the critic?
After Quinn wins re-election I hope Fio' steps up.

Fioretti is a JOKE!! He was hand picked ala Carol Mosley Braun to help Rahm win the election by siphoning off votes from Lewis. Now that Lewis is not running Fioretti will be exposed as the clown lap dog for 9.5 that he is. Will he demand and I mean DEMAND DEBATE'S WITH THE 9.5 GENIUS? Tell of the tape right there. He's a Company man. Notice his campaign? Riiiiight, Me neither. Nuff Said!

Given how much Rahm is hated, why doesn't a Republican challenge him.
I know it's a Democrat city, but there is a huge Anyone-But-Rahm sentiment out there. I'm thinking that Dillard, the guy who ran for Governor would have a great chance of beating Rahm.

In the early days of the red-light revenue trap drove my personal car like a squad car and racked up numerous violations and paid dearly for it.
I made up for it "working" the streets.
Now, the speed (S)cams are robbing me........but I'm RETIRED!

Rahm is truly evil!

He cursed Lewis and brain washed the idiots on this job to vote "yes" on his shitty contract!

Looks like he'll be around for the next 20 years!

Now that Lewis is out Fioretti will follow right behind!

Rahm will take this without spending any campaign money.

I just can't stand this asshole Rahm! What a putz!

Fioretti wants the money refunded? I wonder how many tickets he has racked up-probably looking for a refund for himself!

I simply can't fathom why there are no better candidates for Mayor much less Governor in this whole State.

My Grandmother, a Swede-bless her soul had more moxie than the 4 of these guys put together! Wouldn't you agree Bobby D.?
She would have straightened all this nonsense out!
