Rahm to Pay Rezko Debts?

  • For the last few days I've been looking for takers on my bet that Mayor Emanuel will eventually spend about $17.4 million of your property tax dollars to pay off some of convicted felon Tony Rezko's obligations.

    Not exactly at the top of anyone's priority list of expenditures—except, perhaps, the people who made the mistake of lending Rezko their money.

    This has to do with the mayor's mouth-frothing determination to spare no public expense to develop "Rezkoville," the 62 acres of vacant land between Roosevelt and Chinatown that Rezko once owned, into a neighborhood filled with condos and townhomes.

    Apparently, Emanuel will do just about anything to avoid spending that money on boring things like our dead-broke schools.
Or underfunded police pensions. Go read it all - pretty amazing stuff, and all within the realm of possibility.

It all sounds like a great idea, just as long as the development is open to Section * Housing. Just one more place the poor unfortunate folks can go to live and come up in the world.

Sixty-two acres of construction means someone Rahm knows will get his/her beak wet from the money the city spends on the project and kick back money to Rahm in the form of campaign contributions. It's the Chicago Way.

Rezko was Obama's next-door neighbor. Didn't he slide the Prez some feet of additional easement there for the flower beds or whatever?

No connection. No connection. No connection.

"It's all because you greedy Cops have those
cush $100K Pensions and sweet early retirement
in your 50's while WE have to stand by and watch
after OUR pensions were stolen from us..."


The sound of sour, salty grapes being squeezed?
Or perhaps some resentment at the thought of
having perhaps stood in the wrong line?

"Being the Police looks easy.
Besides, "studies" have shown that
being a cop is safer than even being
a deep sea fisherman so you guys
need to come down off the cross
and face the fact that you've lost
your place in the societal order.
You guys are just pissed because
it isn't 1960 anymore. Oh yeah...
Black Lives Matter."

When rezko was around, the media put him in everybody's face as a great entrepreneur. This is like paying Bernie Madoff victims.

It's not like Rahm would put that $17 Million to good use like towards our drastically underfunded pension fund.

I read Joravsky's story. Looks to me like the whole thing is Rezko's personal responsibility -- screwing everyone he knew and then not paying them back, etc.

...and here comes Rahm with his broom, sweeping up the horse s__t after the parade has gone by.

With our money.

If Rahm dipped into his own fortune to cover his bud, I wouldn't care so much -- except for the disgusting display of utter corruption and cronyism.

It's ok SCC, the city is flush with money. They must be since they were able to sell the old 12th dist station to the Chicago children's theatre for a whole dollar! Yes ONE dollar when they can't fund our pensions and have to raise taxes. It's all legit.

That land is quite valuable; the sale and development of it could bring in some serious $$$ which the City desperately needs.

Area three garage called 018 today and asked for a car to be brought to the area ASAP because someone from 35th street saw that it had a NRA number sticker on it that had to removed immediately. Is that really all they have to worry about at headquarters?
