Still Scamming

Shortshanks must not have gotten the Obama memo about "I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money." He's still got his paws in the mix:
  • Former Mayor Richard M. Daley is aiming to cash in on a federal program that gives foreigners the chance to obtain permanent U.S. residency in exchange for investing in businesses that create jobs in the United States.

    Tur Partners — which Daley formed with his son Patrick Daley after leaving office — has permission from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to solicit money from foreign investors who would bankroll construction projects or other businesses in the Chicago area in exchange for green cards allowing them to live here forever.

    The Obama administration granted Daley’s company authority to pool money from foreign investors to help finance a “hypothetical” skyscraper that Magellan Development has talked about building at 195 N. Columbus Dr. in its 28-acre Lakeshore East development that Daley approved while mayor, according to hundreds of pages of heavily redacted documents the Homeland Security Department released to the Chicago Sun-Times under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act.

    Daley’s company also could solicit foreign financing to help Magellan build another skyscraper in Lakeshore East — the proposed $900 million, 88-story Wanda Vista tower — condos, hotels and stores — that Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced with fanfare shortly before Christmas. Financed primarily by Chinese businessmen, it would be Chicago’s third-tallest building, rising on the south bank of the Chicago River east of Michigan Avenue.
And this is just an amusing sentence:
  • The Emanuel administration had been unaware that the former mayor’s company had any involvement with Magellan, according to a City Hall source.
Really? Rahm the micro-manager had no idea his predecessor, who stuck him with all sorts of bad options for running the city into the ground, and who made millions himself in the "investment banking" sector with zero experience, was completely unaware that Shortshanks was involved in the "investment banking" business, financing a $900 million as-of-yet non-existent skyscraper that might be built in Chicago?

Sounds completely plausible.

Lets see if dean makes a mayor endorsement today. My guess he wont want to ruffle feathers so not to ruin jr's merit chances. It was part of deans campaign. "Im only running for my kid". Selfish prick never changed his whole time on the job. What is grand total $ he took from disability and handing out college degrees for money?

Okay, is Daley too ill to testify in a court case, but sharp enough to conduct multimillion dollar deals?
How does that work, exactly?

Tur Partners? They should have called in Turd Partners.

King Richie must be feeling better. Still not up to testifying though.

Let me guess....the sewer work will be done by Municipal Sewer Services, the building will be managed by DV Reality, and the law firm of record will be Katten Muchin Rosenman. Security will be provided by RJ Vanecko's HeavyHand Protection Agency.

Stevie Wonder could see how dirty this deal is. Not one law enforcement agency ANYWHERE can see this?

"Emanuel's Rare Political Reach Fuels Fundraising"

LaSalle St. and Wall St. financial firms, banks and tradin companies bankrolling the missing digit hobgoblin to the tune of $30+ Million as payback for using his Washington D.C. connections to protect THEIR financial interests...

>Squeeky Squooky-Squeek <
Another freshly twisted balloon critter of distraction for the low information non-doers of due diligence
American electorate...

AKA "The Sheeple."

"No No NO!
Don't look over here!
Look over THERE at all those COPS getting sweet early retirements and cush $100k pensions ALL on YOUR tax dollars! Doesn't it make you taxpayers ANGRY at THEM for reaping such out-of-scale financial rewards?"

As has been said on this blog many times...
These taxpayer bail-out funded money conjurers have cast a lustful eye upon Police, Fire and muni employee pension funds which are the very last honeypots of unmolested monies.

"Bust the Cops and Firemen out of their defined pensions and give the money to us! We'll turn them into 401Ks and manage them for a "fee."

With campaign fund kick-backs to elected officials to buy favorable legislation and to shield themselves from ever having to face voter wrath.

Hiya Rahm al-Ghoul!
Top o' the mornin' to ya Mike Mads!
Ya shriveled, little theiving leprechaun.
And hearty malediction to a host of others.


42 Extra Short and that steroid swollen hog-headed spawn of his want the sole Chicago franchise to peddle green cards too...


A Copper gives some self important asshole a righteous eye-roll and every swing-dick and hang-tit demands leave and leisure to very publicly paw through his underwear drawer because being a "Public Servant" who swore an oath means standing still for an outrage way past time most free men would normally start justifiably swinging fists, clubs and/or dropping shots...

"You coppers got rules so you CAN'T hit back!"

The whole damned thing is rotted from within and is beyond the ability of Policemen, those "mere public servants" to fix or repair.

The Police are the enemy.

Viva Hate...

Is this guy (daley) the personification of evil? Or is he just so stupid and clueless that sharp operators and scamsters latch onto him for political muscle. Either way he's still dangerous and we will be far better off when he's gone. History will not be kind to him and his family.

And I had no idea that Rahm was fund raising while on city time and compensated money all over the world. At least not til' the Tribune pointed it out to Rahm. Then he said sorry/no contest.

Since Daley is competent enough to handle a job, but is unable to answer Federal questions, maybe he needs to be asked Federal questions on his worksite.

I'm glad that we have to submit an ethics statement every year to show that we are not doing business with the city. Couldn't they do the opposite and create an ordinance that requires that if you are a city employee and doing business with the city that you have to submit notice? This seems so backwards that whole departments have to be inconvenienced for the appearance of transparency.

And all the while Rahm takes campaign cash/retirement fund/401K from money managers doing business with the city police and fire pension funds. After the Chicago City Council approved the project in April 2014, McCaffery, his wife and an executive with his McCaffery Interests development company contributed $65,900 to the mayor’s campaign fund between June 30 and Nov. 24
The order doesn’t ban contributions, though, from employees of companies that have city business. Nor does it bar contributions from employees of financial firms that invest city pension money. Nor does it apply to the Chicago Forward super PAC, created by Rebecca Carroll — a former Chicago Public Schools communications chief — to help aldermanic candidates who support the mayor’s agenda. When do we say enough is enough???????????
