Ethics for Thee, Not for Me

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel side-stepped reports about his political fundraising practices, while making his own points about ethics reform.

    At an unrelated news conference Monday, the mayor did not directly answer Chicago Tribune stories about how he seems to use his political connections to fuel his campaign fundraising, or how some donors benefit from city business.

    Emanuel did say he has worked for ethics reform since he was in Congress, right up to his present job.

    “The first thing I did as mayor was sign six executive orders that changed the culture, and the rules, as it relates to financial support. Not only that, I then also had three separate ethics reform ordinances put into place that changed the way both lobbyists dealt with the city, and the city dealt with people lobbying on behalf of interests,” he said.
Yeah, but still no explanation on the $11 million in a field that had nothing to do with his Dance major that relived him of money worries for the rest of his life.

Don't forget - Ethics testing is coming up soon! Don't use Rahm's life experience as a guide if you want to pass though.

Why can't Rahm use his fund-raising skills to use at raising funds for the depleted pension funds?

Speaking of "Ethics"... is it true what I read in another thread about this Ray Cassinio VP of FOP campaigned on not accepting an extra stipened but is now thking $650 extra a month?! Is Dean is allowing the officers working in the office to collect the $650 stipened too? I voted for each of them, they made campaign promises but didnt keep them. I view it as theft.

Rahm identifies with a crack smoker, police hater, communist revolutionary, tax cheat, race baiter, carpetbagger, draft dodger, and such. Any other candidate is at least equal to him, so vote the incumbent out.

It's what we're supposed to do for a free country.

Ha good point. Is is stupid to believe that the voters know better than to vote for dancin dolly rahm? If he wins then you know theres voter fraud more than usual. Id like to see how many democrats got to vote more than once and how many dead people miraculously were able to vote from their graves.

(OT) Open the borders protect the illegals here, looks like bishop (I never told people to put hands up in church) wants to keep illegals here, wonder how much they give to catholic church? Hey bishop maybe you could talk about first responders supporting us, with the billions this will cost maybe you could offer words to fund the pensions of police, you know would be nice!!

I think it's safe to say most, if not all, politicians are liars.
Rahm takes it to the next level.... he's a professional liar.

I see McCarthy and Alvarez at just about every Blackhawks game. One would have to ASSUME they have season tickets. I do know they are guests of Rocky Wirtz to enjoy free food and drinks in the private Sonja Henie room between periods!

That can't be more then $50 can it?
