Server Scandal

  • As a result of a BGA investigation and legal action, The City of Chicago and Mayor Rahm Emanuel have agreed to release all of Emanuel's private emails related to city business—subject to any applicable legal exemptions—and institute a new policy that will ban city employees and officials from using their private email accounts to conduct city business.

    The city's change in practices comes in response to Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits filed by the BGA, and separately by the Chicago Tribune, and follows more than a year of hard-fought litigation and rulings by two Cook County judges that public officials’ emails are not outside the scope of FOIA simply because they are on a private account.
Quick! Someone alert Hillary!

Now how about the BGA start working on body-cameras for politicians doing taxpayer business so we can all see exactly how the bribes, crooked contracting and shady deals get done?

News said many of the e-mails were with dealings with Rauner before he was Gov. Wow, wish wikileaks could get those.

The "Better Government Association" is an oxymoron. On occasion, the BGA will criticize certain minor aspects of the most politically corrupt major city in the nation. But when it comes down to actual REFORM, listen for crickets. How else can you explain why the BGA does not passionately endorse and support:

(1) term limits for all elected officials,
(2) a recall referendum initiative that would be binding against elected officials deemed unworthy to serve by the electorate,
(3) aligning the per capita City Counsel representation with other large cities [Chicago should have no more than seventeen (17) wards/aldercreatures; NOT fifty (50)],
(4) accountability and transparency in the "merit" scandal of clout in CPD promotional policies. A generation ago, the BGA and TV Channel 5 was involved in the "smoking gun" evidence of the rigged "ExamScam" promotions. Bottom line: The BGA and WMAQ-TV did absolutely nothing to reform this incontrovertible and demoralizing corruption.

Just like the complicit local MSM, when push comes to shove, City Hall has the BGA in their hip pocket. It's the Chicago Way.

This is a total head fake by Rahm and the BGA. The BGA is going to let Rahm's lawyers decide which emails contain city business and be produced. Why would the BGA agree to let Rahm's lawyers unilaterally decide what should be produced? Because Rahm and Andy Shaw are buddies and Shaw knows that Rahm concealed his knowledge of the Laquan videos and other things. Shaw is agreeing to this to save his buddy in the hope he will be reelected. Shaw and Rahm are both hoping this will also satisfy the Tribune which has also sued Rahm to produce his emails under FOIA. It should also be noted that the BGA under the agreement is no longer seeking the production of Rahm's text messages. The BGA is a sham run by Andy Shaw. It only goes after politicians who do not share Shaw's radical left wing views. Since among other things Rahm has pledged that Chicago will forever be a sanctuary city, the Shaw run BGA will not let him be destroyed by the production of his most egregious emails.

There's the rub "Emanuel's private emails related to city business". That 9 fingered hobgoblin won't turn over anything of interest claiming it wasn't city business.

He had learned from Hillary's mistakes. Anything worth reading has been 'Bleach bitted'.

I am quite sure Kim Foxx and Inspector General Ferguson will be launching an investigation, settling a case with Rahm's BGA water carriers does not address violations of Illinois law or the destruction of emails and texts that pertain to city business.

Has Shaw worked out a deal with the city to stop them from finding regulation and licensing violations for his family B & B business?

He, as the head of the bga, went on record endorsing the city using Police officers, making Sgt. pay, to transport ex mayor meters daley's wife to medical appointments. You try that for your family!

How is he and his bullshit organization even taken seriously?

Better Government Association, for who?

Telling you right off the bat I'm not sure if this is true or not but I wish someone with absolute knowledge would confirm or disprove this story.
I was told that BGA President Andy Shaw's daughter works in Rahm's Office. If this is true, which I personally believe, it would actually show the improper influence that the Mayor holds over the BGA and the reason that anything that comes from them can't be trusted.
When I read in the Trubune this morning that the BGA was going to take the Mayor's Office at their word that there were no further emails I wanted to puke. According to the BGA "we are a small organization and......." I call bullshitt.

Subpoena city officials phones, text messages and media sent while doing their jobs. Police aren't exempt, why should these dogs be exempt. Seems like police officers phones used during major incidents is the new hot button topic down at headquarters....

Rahm come on will not show everything, this information is thoroughly data mined and vetted! rahm is acting like he is transparent, but we are not "deplorable" we actually mayor and the rest are extremely intelligent and our bullshit meter is working at a high level! Does anyone really believe that honesty on the 5th floor is forthright? We lie,we cheat,we steal is the rahm and the 50's motto simple as that!

Andy Shaw is owned by rahm & crew!

Any of you wondering how the City can pull up a deleted emails from a private server?

Keep thinking you will out smart the City when they ask for your real cell phone on a police shooting.
The City will make you turn over all your phones and FOP will just say do it.

The City is stripping officers at such a high rate the FOP legal Fund managed by disability DEAN cannot keep it adequately funded.

Heaven forbid you use your work email for anything. They can troll through all those spicy emails.

Rahm when under pressure returns to the 90's, when he was the key player in the Clinton Cover-Ups, Bimbo Eruptions and of course their War Room. One of the key Clintonista Tactics was the Week-end Info Dump. Clinton's people would regularly dump info on a Friday before a long weekend, usually when Congress was not in session. Dumping this info last night, with Christmas this weekend was a classic Clinton Era move. And like the Clinton days, the Media is on his side, so nothing will come of anything released. However, I have noticed that Rahm is becoming angrier. Notice his body language and his nervousness when he is in public. Yeah, he knows Trump, but it is doubtful he will have influence, beyond the fact that Trump has a major investment here with his Trump property. Even if Hillary had won, Rahm would Not have been the key Player, because of the suppression of the McDonald tape. And wait, that trial will be International in Media coverage. Rahm is an outright Narcissist and Power Whore. It is all about Power in Rahm's mind, and he is beginning to realize, he is losing power and Nobody trusts or likes him. If you look at those emails, there is one from Alderman Moore, a White liberal from Rogers Park. In the email, Moore says something to the effect that saying Rahm suppressed the McDonald Tape was bullshit. Rahm just responds with an O.K., thanks. As if Moore was a nobody, and to Rahm maybe he was back then, when Rahm thought he would be V.P.! Everyday brings us closer, to Rahm being just another rich guy in Chicago. No Entourage of bodyguards, and Suck Asses. Just another little middle aged rich guy, looking for attention. Fuc& Rahm and Chicago Values! Baby"G"

Re: Chicago Political Corruption

I couldn't agree with you more, particularly on Item (4). Go to the YouTube search engine and enter EXAMSCAM and COVER-UP. Over 600 victimized sergeants proved beyond all doubt that the 80% "oral boards" were rigged by CPD brass. The BGA and Channel 5 never even followed up on their TV corruption "expose". Daley stalled and the City got away with it just like Inspector General Joseph Ferguson will let the current "LIE-tenants" scandal disappear into oblivion. The City of Chicago is shameless and corrupt to the core. The BGA and MSM are in bed with City Hall and have zero credibility. Chicago's perverse definition of "MERIT" = CLOUT. Period.

Stay fetal, retire or quit and move out of state ASAP as Chicago goes into its death rattle.

They've been asking for those emails for over a year? Nothing to hide.
Took Rahm a long time to respond even after the lawsuit, I wonder why?
I have to blame BleachBit, they sure have a slow program.
I'm convinced, no impropriety has ever been perpetrated and this was all a just another Right wing conspiracy.
To prove it, Rahm will show that there were days not a single email was sent or received on his personal server.

Somebody at the IG should check the City Hall Procurement Office, they might find an astounding amount of new computers and iPhones were recently purchased.

For years and years I have advocated for elected 'officials" being required to punch time clocks, with the records being open all day every day for inspection by nay Citizen who wants to look at them.

I would also like to see those same elected officials subjected to wearing body cameras.

Why does SCOTUS refuse to have courts in the courtroom? Hmm? The instant cameras get in there, well, that is the moment we win and politicians have to wear cameras AND have cameras on everything they do while ummm on the clock. Oh and there is no 'off the clock" business to be done.

After all cameras both convict crooked politicians just like they defend innocent ones, right? That is what is said about cops wearing cameras, right? Right.

Rahm and the BGA were working hand-in-hand. While the lawsuit was proceeding, Rahm was scrubbing the server. When settled, only 3,000 of the blandest non-consequential emails remained.

All planned to give the appearance of transparency. Only transparent when dumping on the police.

Andy Shaw and Rahm Emanuel have houses in Union Pier MI area and are quite chummy. Kate Shaw worked with Rahm in Obama's White House as legal counsel. I believe Rahm got her the job.

BGA is indeed a fake watchdog group and should be investigated and exposed.

Andy is unethical and runs and tells Alderman the names of citizens who come to him with serious wrongdoing.

I wonder if Rahm has scandalous photos of Andy because Rahm entirely controls that puppet

This Rahm email dump is staged and just pathetic

Chris Hayes, the liberal scum on MSNBC is Shaw's son in law, married to Kate shaw, who got a job from obama when Rahm was chief of staff. Rahm and shaw are buddies. Shaw needs to be called out for what he is. Why did the gutless Bga drop the suit to get Rahm's texts released? Because he's a coward, liberal loser who reports to Rahm. Another gutless waste of space is the so called InspectorGeneral outfit wannabe joe Ferguson.

It would have to be body cameras on politi-creatures because the legislature thoughtfully made it a felony for a citizen to record a bribe request when it is demanded.
