Train Runs Over Garry
- Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has been subpoenaed in the Jesse Jackson Jr. divorce case.
The former Congressman and his wife, former Ald. Sandi Jackson, are in the middle of a nasty divorce. The subpoena asks McCarthy to turn over a wealth of information pertaining to a relationship to Sandi — dating back to 2012.
It demands McCarthy turn over records of cash, checks, or property given to Ms. Jackson, including attorney’s fees, groceries, rent or clothing. The subpoena also asks the former superintendent to produce documents detailing what he received from her.
Additionally, Jesse Jackson’s attorneys are seeking social media correspondence, photos, videos, emails and texts between McCarthy and Ms. Jackson.
In response to the subpoena, McCarthy tells CBS 2: “I’m not going to comment on anything that stupid.”
So right after Garry starts vocally defending the Department and pointing fingers at Rahm and Rahm's law department, this comes out? Is someone sending Garry a message? This might have been fodder to keep Garry in line when he was in charge, or perhaps to dissuade him from running for some sort of office in the near future.
