Welcome to the Party Pal
- Two prominent challengers of Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city needs to put the brakes on a troubled red-light camera program, arguing that the mayor misled the public about its safety benefits at motorists’ expense.
But while the two candidates — Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia and Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd) — were happy to rail against the city’s program, Garcia apparently did not not have similar concerns last March.
That’s when he accepted a $1,500 donation from Safespeed LLC the day before casting a “yes” vote that cleared the way for the company to install a red-light camera in River Forest, records show.
Nice job there "Chewie." We remember years when bought aldercreatures would stay bought. Not any more though. And Fioretti needs to step it up a few notches or Rahm is going to win coasting in. Get nasty Bob. Paint Rahm with any brush that you can find - hell, half the narrative has already been written:
- liar (says he'll hire police, then reassigns instead);
- shootings up double-digit percentages;
- closer of minority schools;
- enemy of the unions;
- mayor 1%
Do we really have to draw a map?
