Where Did He Learn This Trick?

  • The Chicago Tribune filed a lawsuit Thursday alleging that Mayor Rahm Emanuel violated state open records laws by refusing to release communications about city business conducted through private emails and text messages.

    The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, asks a judge to order the mayor to comply with a state Freedom of Information Act request from the Tribune and produce the documents. The lawsuit also seeks to have Emanuel declared in violation of the Illinois Local Records Act for failing to preserve emails and texts he sent or received while doing city business.

    The lawsuit claims that, in recent years, Freedom of Information Act requests from the Tribune to the mayor's office "have been met with a pattern of non-compliance, partial compliance, delay and obfuscation." Emanuel's use of private phones and personal email, the lawsuit alleges, allows the mayor to do the public's business without scrutiny and contributes to a "lack of transparency."
Golly, it's a good thing there are laws at every level covering this sort of behavior and punishment shall be meted swiftly and ruthlessly against all who disobey. If there weren't consequences, why, a former Secretary of State could run a private e-mail server out of her house, conduct sensitive national business away from Congressional oversight, and allow foreign governments could steal all sorts of classified information. And that would never ever happen.

Hillary was mocking all us proles, laughing at the rubes the other day.

"Certainly I wiped the server. I took a cloth and got the dust off it."

FBI computer forensics boys are busy, busy, busy in there. We'll see who gets the last laugh.

Tribune get in line. I put in a FOIA request for information for the 1987 Lts. exam (#87002), which I took, to then Personnel Commissioner Jesse E. Hoskins. Received a letter back dated 14 Apr 88 which stated ......"DDue to the very large number of requests we have received for review appointments, we are unable to give you an appointment date at this time. We will schedule you for an appointment at the earliest possible opportunity. You will be notified by mail as soon as the scheduling is completed." Still waiting they must real busy!
Was in the first 60 in the written essay exam. Then being asked those same questions at the "magic" oral board I went into the 400s. Yes it was truly magic as some who were at the bottom of the list on the written essay went to the top because of the "magic" oral board!

Too bad Rahm isn't a Republican. Then his e-mails would have been mysteriously hacked and released by someone. Someone with *cough feds cough* incredible information gathering powers.

Not by the NSA, no way that would ever happen. You can trust the intelligence services. They never change their intelligence for political reasons. Just like the IRS never audits its political enemies.

I wonder if Rahm taught Hillary, or if Hillary taught Rahm.

Did Rahm teach Hillary or did she teach Rahm?

These are serious allegations at the highest level , in fact, destroying government records without approval is downright criminal, but rest assured, I'm certain the hapless, feckless, and inept Inspector General Joe "Queen of Hearts" Ferguson has already launched an internal investigation into the alleged misdeeds of Mayor 1%.
