The Dirty Election

So the FOP election has fallen into the "dirty tricks" category with Dean Angelo, a guy who spent 10 years on disability, came off of the disability roll when he was safe from the streets and ready to retire this June, openly questioning his opponent's residency via a media tool:
  • Chicago Police Officer Kevin W. Graham once picketed with the Fraternal Order of Police carrying a sign that called for ending the residency requirement for Chicago cops: “If the city wants to save money, lift residency requirement,” it read.

    In 2013, he and his wife sold their split-level house in Edgebrook on the city’s Northwest Side — and bought a more expensive four-bedroom house in Lincolnshire, about 25 miles outside the city limits in Lake County.

    Now, Graham wants to head the city’s largest police union, aiming to unseat FOP President Dean Angelo in a high-profile runoff that ends March 29.

    And even though Graham has a suburban address, he insists he’s renting his sister’s Chicago condo, living there in full compliance with police department rules.
So is this a big deal? We can name 20 coppers right now who moved their families out of the city for assorted reasons and who maintain residences in two locations with relatives, friends or co-workers. It's nothing hundreds of our readers haven't advocated, attempted and accomplished in one form or another. Shortshanks, Rahm, Prickwrinkle, their henchmen, schools, tax policies, etc have made it undesirable (and less affordable) to reside in the city and county. And if you have a working spouse who makes decent coin, it makes economic sense, too. Coppers have won this in court. Hell, Rahm established "residency" with a wedding dress he hadn't worn in years.

So it's time to evaluate this election, not on the dirty tricks, but on the realities we see on the ground:
  • Dean is the invisible president. That isn't good in the upcoming negotiations;
  • Dean gave away too much - duty availability for the youngsters, tuition reimbursement limits. And asking for vehicles in a labor contract?
  • The failure to advocate heavily for the casino. The unilateral extension of the pension bailout, giving Rahm hundreds of millions to spend on pet projects. Unforced errors that jeopardize an already broken system;
  • Dean is mandatory retirement age this year. That means in addition to the 9 of 17 trustees being retired (and a tenth retiring this year), 2 of 3 sergeants-at-arms retired, the Recording secretary retired and Dean about to retire, 13 of 27 elected spots will be retirees, and not a single one of them can have a hand in the upcoming negotiations. How is that representative of the active membership?
That isn't to say we don't have questions about Graham:
  • His roll in the Shields debacle that cost the membership legal fees and a payout;
  • The end of his tenure with the state lodge under unexplained circumstances;
  • The sale of his Edgebrook property to Rahm's retired sergeant uncle - that sort of thing isn't coincidence;
  • His close relationship with Donahue, Dougherty and Aguilar. Two of those three shouldn't be anywhere near an inside spot ever again due to negligence, incompetence and an inability to focus on their actual job - to protect the membership and the Contract. And the other one endorsed Rahm.
We'd like to see one of the candidates confirm that those we elected are those that will serve in the office. Failing that, we're going to end up falling back on our previous advice - Patrol before Detective, active before retiree - and we'll push hard for amendments that allow the elected representatives to serve those that elected them.

Don't know what the solution can be for letting the candidates that win their office actually work in the FOP office.

It did not work to well for Mikey shields when he left hold overs in the inner office "forgetting the letter!"

The 2 candidates are both ass hats but i will vote for the short goof!

I mean the guy thats friend with the mayor.

What i really mean is the guy that has been soaking up space at the FOP for years and has not made an actual arrest in years.

Just vote...

Listen, I voted for Kevin and after hearing this story I still may vote for him but I'm not sure. Let's be real here.. we are not dumb. We don't just believe that less than 3 or 4 years from retirement, maybe only months if he loses this election he saw what was happening on the horizon. Sell the house in the city, put your name on a basement Apartment and play the game for a few years. Hundreds of coppers coming to the end of the career do it. Hell, I know one guy who moved his family to Chesterton Indiana.. he has an "apartment" in a certain ghetto district where he doesn't live and has no business being but that's been his residence for the past 18 months. He retires in a year and he usually will burn cu on his Monday or Friday to get a longer weekend... must want to spend extra time in his ghetto apartment. It's a game and we know Kevin is playing it. Does that mean I'm not going to vote for him? Prob not. Do you expect him to admit to it? Not a chance but don't take us for fools scc and to the others who say it's just a coincidence get real. Kevin is playing the game without a doubt. We aren't stupid.

When you have more retirees voting than active officers, you get more retirees running the FOP.

Disability Dean is an embarassment for his shenanigans playing the disability game. Graham, however, is just stupid to think that anyone believes that he lives in a basement or a family member's condo in the city while the rest of his family lives in a suburb and he is not divorced. Look up the requirements for residency, it's not just keeping an address and 2 uniforms. If so many coppers have won this in court, then everyone would be doing it.

All this election proves is the overall ineptitude of this department to even find one candidate that isn't sideways in some fashion. It's pretty sad that either of these two is all that we could find, out of thousands in the membership. Reminds me of our recent presidential election. What a joke this has all become.

Dean Angelo should worry more about our pension and other benefits that he has given away. Kevin Graham lives in the city in the 019 District. Dean Angelo should be ashamed of himself for resorting to this type of slander in his run off campaign. To me he looks like a weasel for doing this. I for one do not want a weasel negotiating a police contract with city officials. Remember a weasel will do anything to help himself and or his family members to get ahead. Vote Kevin Graham in and the weasel out!!!!

I don't care about the issue if Graham lives in the city or not. The retirees on the board don't Have to. They can still do the job. I am more annoyed about Dean putting the situation in the newspaper. Let's not be foolish to not realize where the tip came from. I think it comes down to who is more capable of running the union. We have seen what dean has or more accurately hasn't done with his three years. He's given away the house in the contract.. Has been unable to fight the media. He has shown no backbone when it comes to fighting for us. He has also surrounded himself with poor choices as field reps. There was only one to get elected to office. So what would dean do. bring all his people who lost back in the office? Giving dean another 3 years scares me. How much more will he give up. How many more officers will be firered. How poor would the office continue to be run. It is a dismal outlook with dean at the helm. From what people who know Graham said I believe Graham has the memberships best interest at heart. He seems to actual care and go out of his way to help other officers. I am voting for Graham cause I think he can only do better than what dean has done with his term.

SCC, I realize that most people want their elected officials upstairs at the FOP offices, but you and they should be aware that sometimes an elected official may not want to assume all of the responsibilities that a Field Rep has to take on. Yes, the pay is good, but the hours are long, the work is hard, and some days the rep is on call 24 hours. It isn't for everyone.

Some members may question why someone would run for office at all if they didn't want to work at FOP, but it's really comparing apples and oranges.

The elected official who opts out of a Field Rep spot still serves as a member of the Board of Directors and has a vote as your elected representative. He is automatically a delegate, with voting rights, at State and National conferences. The elected member cannot be removed from his elected position unless he violates our Constitution and Bylaws and has due process rights if this should occur.

A Field Rep, on the other hand, really has no say in the direction of the union and serves at the pleasure of the Board of Directors. A Field Rep can be removed from his position at any time by the Board of Directors without any due process rights.

Sorry one more comment and I'll shut up.

Graham's involvement with Shields didn't cost the State Lodge or Lodge 7 anything. The State Lodge had insurance. The attorneys for the insurance company chose to settle and the insurance company paid out.

Locally, the only moniies Shields received were due to Dean Angelo's refusal to recognize Shields as the Immediate Past President and give him a seat on the Board. The court awarded Shields $21,600 that he would have been entitled to had he been allowed his spot on the Board. Dean instead chose to appoint Bill Nolan as the Immediate Past President and pay him $21,600 even though Nolan hadn't been the president since 2001.

Just another diversion from the burning truth that Angelo did NOTHING for us and allowed the city to continue to screw the working police. I could care less who has a house outside this shithole -- hell, practically every fucking boss on this job has a "summer home" in a neighboring state somewhere. Fact is NO ONE wants to live here, period! Pension, due process/rights, time due, manpower, safety, healthcare -- these are what matter. And that shyster who was supposed to represent us for the last 3 years has touched not one of those issues, and in fact under his leadership, we have lost part of any advantage we had in every fucking aforementioned category.

No.Confidence.Vote. Boot the FOP once and for all. Demand your pension monies be paid in full within 90 days, demand the City put forth its portion owed as well and align yourselves WITH YOURSELVES. Oh wait, that would show the "pension" crisis is a whoooole lot worse than anyone will currently admit. Instead, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

As for the City Residency requirement, a couple things. You gotta be a legal resident of the City, just not the COUNTRY, right Rahm? Where or where is the SANCTUARY in the City? As for playing dual residency, well, try that with kids in school, get caught and just see what happens to you. What happened to "BREAKING THE LAW", Ahem. Ahem.

It ain't just FOP that is proving to be a joke. The officers retired out of it and those still serving are proving to be the butt of a huge one...of course that being just as the politicians intended all along (complete with far too many playing the role of useful idiots, aiding and betting the crooked politicians in the utter destruction of both law and order and the good name of law Enforcement - making a a absolute mockery of it all.

19 MAR @12:45 - No sir, SCC was/is correct. The tiny ballerina has an uncle who was on the job. In fact, when the dancer was struggling to fit in his wedding dress for the corrupt Board of Election Commissioners hearing his residency issue, he had his uncle appear in uniform to praise him during an election commercial. For you younger officers who love to shake this weasel's hand - remember his "stick it in your ear" remark which far out shadows having your uncle saying how he would support the police on a tv campaign commercial.

Here is my prediction. Graham wins the FOP Presidential election and is in office when Donahue and Bill Dougherty realize they are done with Kevin. So they set him up or blackmail him to step down with some type of evidence showing that he lives in the suburbs. Do NOT put it past Dougherty and Donahue they are complete scumbags. They are at he helm once again running the FOP while Kevin is out wondering why his friends betrayed him. Is this a far fetched prediction? I think not.

Lots of wierd stuff with Chicago real estate

http://nlpc.org/2010/05/05/rep-gutierrezs-daughter-may-have-gotten-sweetheart-real-estate-deal/



Gutierrez photoRep. Luis V. Gutierrez’s (D-IL) multitude of legal and ethical problems were compounded on Monday, when it was reported by the Chicago Sun-Times that his daughter may have gotten a sweetheart deal on her home in Chicago.

Gutierrez was the mentor of former Chicago ward-26 alderman Billy Ocasio, who initiated specialized affordable-housing programs in his district. Gutierrez’s daughter, Omaira Figueroa, benefited from the program, buying an affordable condo for a discounted $155,000 in June, 2008, and selling it for $239,900 just over a year later.
While city of Chicago rules prevent affordable-housing owners from re-selling their homes for a major profit, the housing initiative put into place by Ocasio wasn’t subject to these regulations. Figueroa, who originally purchased the condo with a $140,000 loan from her congressman father, was able to the sell the condo at a 55 percent profit.

At the time that she purchased the affordable-housing condo, Figueroa and her husband were making a combined salary of $93,828 a year, noted the Chicago Sun-Times.

Dar SCC,
Once again this beat off Paul Vitaioli is trying his best to back the worst FOP President that I have ever seen. Here is his latest email blast to retirees. When will Paul Vitaioli realize that he is a joke and nobody cares what he has to say? Time to go off to the pasture Paul because your credibility has reached an all time low.

"10-1    RETIREES:  Your Vote Has Never Been More Important! 
 
Dear Friends, Colleagues and All Retirees.... Assumptions are the “Mother of All Foul Ups”!  
Don’t make the grave mistake of thinking that Dean is a shoe in.  Right now, nothing is guaranteed . . .   Assume that he isn’t and please make sure that you keep an eye out for the Run-Off Vote and make sure that you Vote for Dean.  It is a big mistake to think that your vote is unnecessary or doesn’t count.  If there ever was a time to avoid assumptions, this is it.   Five (5) candidates have split up the vote and made the waters muddy.
Dean is now in a run-off with Kevin Graham.   And WHO IS THAT?  Have you heard of him and what is his track record?  Well he is a candidate who is backed by the Anti-Retiree group........
And do you remember when they ALMOST DESTROYED OUR UNION?? 
THERE IS TALK THAT THEY ARE GOING TO RESCIND THE BYLAW we enacted several mont1hs ago to allow retirees back into the union who had left their membership elapse or expire if he is elected...
Dean is challenging Graham to a debate. But Graham is nowhere to be found!
Retirees,  if you don't want to lose what we have gained  during the last three years under the Angelo administration, YOU MUST VOTE IN THE RUN-OFF..
RUN-OFF BALLOTS GO OUT TUESDAY AND WILL BE COUNTED ‪ON‬ ‪28 March‬..  Vote for Dean while your vote still means something!
WE HAVE TO BE THERE FOR DEANand for yourself.   If we don't come out strong for Dean, then we only have ourselves to blame when FOP RETIREE support ENDS!
PLEASE VOTE AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE IT.  YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT... Please make sure that it counts for Dean! 
Thank You,
 
Paul Vitaioli"

FBI agents ask about Gutierrez, developer
Questions raised during Ald. Carothers' bribery probe

May 04, 2010|By Todd Lighty and Robert Becker, Tribune reporters


34
The FBI has interviewed City Hall employees and Chicago aldermen about U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez's ties to a corrupt developer, according to records and interviews that raise new questions about the congressman amid an ongoing federal investigation.

A former alderman convicted in the investigation told FBI agents that Gutierrez boasted of helping his longtime political supporter Calvin Boender obtain a lucrative zoning change for a development on the city's West Side. Another alderman told agents this year she thought Gutierrez was going to buy a home in the development.




And several city planners told investigators they were stunned by the highly unusual intervention of a congressman in a local zoning matter.

The FBI asked about Gutierrez as recently as February, but most of the inquiries occurred during 2008, the Tribune has learned, as federal authorities prepared their bribery cases against Boender and former 29th Ward Ald. Isaac "Ike" Carothers.

The newly disclosed details, coupled with the revelation at Boender's March trial that Gutierrez met with Mayor Richard Daley on Boender's behalf, undermine the congressman's earlier assertions that his involvement was "extremely minimal." The Tribune has previously reported that Boender loaned Gutierrez $200,000 months before the congressman began pushing Daley to support Boender's venture.

Gutierrez, who is seeking his 10th term in Congress in November against little-known Republican and Green Party challengers, declined interview requests and has been largely silent since the federal investigation caught Boender and Carothers. Gutierrez recently has been at the forefront of the immigration reform debate, publicly challenging President Barack Obama on the issue and becoming a regular guest on national news programs.

This union of ours is in a sad state of affairs and I have never been more embarrassed to be in this fraternal organization.

The city owns Graham now. If he is elected they can ram anything they want down our throats. If Kevin doesn’t play ball they will just fire him. Pat Murray would become president? I have to vote for Angelo.

If anyone has been paying attention posts about Graham’s residency have been around for three years, well before he announced that he was running for office. You already have a Rahm rat on the board in Mark Donahue.

No one has proven that Dean went to the media. All anybody has provided is a conspiracy theory at this point. This blaming Dean for something that is easily found on google is a bullshit deflection tactic. Prove that the reporters at the scum times are to incompetent to use a search engine and show some evidence that there was a leak. From what I heard, there are a lot of people that knew Kevin's address prior to the paper releasing it. Stop playing the blame game and start showing some evidence. If you can't provide any, you start to sound like the libtards and might as well start blaming the Russians too.

So we have one candidate that rode the disability train for years and another candidate that plays the residency shell game. I for one am disgusted. The one who wishes to represent us should be beyond reproach. A true policeman who's heart and soul is this job and doing whatever possible to make this a better career for everyone active and retired. These candidates are no better then most politicians, only out for themselves. No one seems to understand that now more then ever there is a "war against the police," and by the way we are currently loosing. This election is going to make the membership look as though we don't have to follow the rules we can do whatever we want. Not only do we have worry about the city doing the right thing we have to worry about the FOP doing the right thing. I'm disgusted and embarrassed.

Rahm and David Axelrod are Masters of dirty tricks, to the point that they were able to get an unknown Marxist, with a phony Southside accent elected President! Remember, Obama's Republican opponent for the Senate dropped out when his "Sealed" divorce records, mysteriously got "Unsealed" to the Tribune! And this house sale to Rahm's uncle; does anyone with an ounce of sense think for a second that Rahm was not holding this info as an ace up his sleeve, and he dropped it just as the ballots were hitting your mailboxes! Truth be told: RAHM HAS GOTTEN EVERYTHING HE WANTS DEALING WITH DEAN, SO HE WANTS DEAN TO WIN. The earlier points raised by SCC on what was lost under Dean, are surely significant to coppers, but the citizens of this City, especially those of color lost MORE, MUCH MORE. Under Dean's leadership, the City was allowed to cut a deal, with a non-government entity, accountable to no one, that has forever changed policing in Chicago; and that is the deal with the ACLU. Dean was in charge of the second largest police Union in the U.S., and he sat there like a Mope and allowed this to happen, and in so doing ended Proactive Policing, one of the Pillars of Community Policing! Dean Let it Happen, failed to mount a Media campaign to mobilize the public against it, he just let it happen. And the Minority Community paid, with blood. If you doubt me, refer to what the U.S. Attorney for Northern Il. said in his farewell letter. Fardon acknowledged that the deal with ACLU was a major factor in the death toll that followed it. Rahm likes to bully Weaklings. On the other hand, Graham needs to campaign in the style of this New Political Era. Rahm is the Past, his politics are "Leaks" to Media flunkies and friends, strategically placed innuendo. What Kevin needs to do is simple: Call a news conference, and tell IAD to put their proof and the allegations on the table, here and now. If they cannot support the rumors, then there can be no doubt, that Kevin has been set-up, and everyone can make their decision. And Kevin will have stood up to Rahm's Machine. And then Kevin can ask IAD to get back to investigating their scandal on promotions. Otherwise, Kevin is too weak to stand up to Rahm; in which case, get ready to lose more in the next contract. Stay Strong, Vote, and Fu&k Rahm's Shitcaga Values. Baby"G"

Election Date Revision

TO ALL FOP MEMBERS

Due to a problem and subsequent delay with the printer, mailing of the ballots for the runoff election was delayed. To assure all active and retired members across the country have the opportunity to receive and mail back their ballots, the date of the election will now be Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

A post card will immediately be sent to all active and retired members explaining the change of date and that all ballots are due back at the Post Office no later than Tuesday, April 11, 2017, with the ballot count to be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

The ballots WILL NOT be reprinted with the new dates, please return your original ballot through the US Mail as you normally would. Again, ballots are due back no later than Tuesday, April 11, 2017.

It is of paramount importance that all active and retired members have the opportunity to cast their ballots with ample time to have those ballots returned and counted. This was the sole reason why the election date was changed.

Thank you for your understanding.

He needs more time to scramble to reach out to more retirees, thus your delay thus the "LEAKED" story about graham living outside the city and all this in an attempt to muddy graham up. Officers, stick with the issues and say to yourself.. "has Dean been there for us the last 3 years???

Residency is based on state law.ou have to repeal a state law. The city council and mayor have no standing to do that. In other jurisdiction and states, it has been established that an officer has every right to live where he can reach his station within 45 minutes to an hour in an emergency. You can drive pretty7 far on the expressways in an hour.

They use the economic band from Indiana to Kenosha to determiner our lving costs in contract negotiations. But can you pay Kenosha taxes and food costs on the north side of Chicago, where you live to meet residency? I never understood that.

Graham wants to use D'Alba as our attorney in the next contract negotiation. I will vote for Graham, but D'Alba badly fumbled our contract negotiation a few years back. This was the one about the Rockford truck driver, the bad economy, and the promise to reopen the contract if things got better. What a joke. What a wasted effort. What a lightweight. The city representatives dog-walked us in that contract negotiation.

Do you know the real reason we have residency? Not because of our tax base, or our votes, or the real estate values in Norwood Park. It is based on the 1950's belief that you had to be able to raise first responders like Minutemen in case we were bombed by the Russians. That is where it started. It was based on Cold War fear. An absolute fact. Look it up.

Well, maybe North Korea will test a nuke, and we will have a basis to enforce a residency policy again. What's old becomes new again.

For your information an opinion of the Corporation Counsel states in part: “actual residence has been found to contemplate substantially the same attributes as are intended when the word ‘domicile’ is used, and a permanent and fixed character is intended.”

“…an actual resident has been held to be one who is in a place with the intent to establish there his domicile or permanent residence.”

The opinion goes on to say: “…the acquisition of a local address solely for the purpose of claiming it as a residence as a requirement of public employment must be viewed as a subterfuge designed to avoid the obvious objectives of the ordinance. What is required is that the employee actually dwell at the purported residence, not that he have a mailing address at which he/she may on occasion spend some minimal amount of time, while, for example, his/her family lives outside the city and his/her children attend schools outside of the city in which the employed parent purports to reside.”

Most recently the Illinois Supreme Court, in upholding the City’s residency requirement, described actual residence as a person’s “true, permanent home” and “principal residence (and) domicile.”

The department cannot force your family to live in the city.Your family can live anywhere in the world that they want to live, not so much for you. So, if you have a residence in the city, have your voter's registration in the city, your vehicles registered in the city, pay your city taxes and on the days that you WORK, lay your head down in the city, you can have your family live anywhere and on your days off and furloughs go where you want to go. It is an expensive way to live but if you can afford it and want your kids out of the city, go for it. The courts will back you up.

You can bet Dean will buy this election just like he bought the last election by promising McDonough a Field Rep spot at $150K in return for his support as he was the 3rd highest vote getter last election. McDonough threw his support behind Dean and Dean gave him the field rep spot for 3 years. Not only did Dean give an election loser McDonough a field rep spot, but he gave election losers Marlon Harvey and Keith Carter Field Rep spots that the elected 2nd Vice President and 3rd Vice Presidents are always awarded totally ignoring the will of the membership. Speaking of ignoring the will of the membership. When Dean remove 1 trustee with his kangaroo committee and another was vacated due to promotion our constitution and by-laws direct that the next 2 highest vote getters for this position be offered the position and you go down the list until the positions are filled. Dean bypassed the 23 next highest vote getters of the trustees and got his guy who ran with him on his ticket appointed to the trustee spot. His second selection for the vacated trustee spot was not even eligible for the election and wasn't even on the ballot. Keep voting Dean and he will continue to ignore the constitution and by laws that are suppose to govern our union as well as the wishes of the members and who they elected.

Maybe it was the Russians right? How about this election is a total due over but before the pallets are mailed we have a debate that is moderated questions are submitted by independent police officers let's see how the answer let's not look at the news media who is very dishonest putting that man's home on the front page of the paper today that was 100% wrong Kevin did nothing wrong this is a none story. This is just another attempt by whoever that is involved with this election to backstab a police officer it is simple as that whoever has done this play these dirty tricks whether it's the election committee or Dean him self but then again Dean is not smart enough or dirty enough to do this wonder who it is that plays like this damaging a police officer's reputation just because he is running against you this is the Democratic playbook 100% every person involved in this is obviously a Democrat and Hillary voter without a doubt that is how they play the game extremely dirty.

Not saying that Kevin Graham is great either but this really tips the scale's at least for many police officers I talk to you voting for Kevin Graham will be the choice now this was a way under about doing this Dean you're exposed many other police officers now to retribution and problem whoever it was that did this dirty dirty deed needs to be outed and thrown out of the union and if they are active police officers which they are specially one of them needs to be disassociated with police officers everywhere it is shameful and disgusting very much like a scumbag from the streets you have fed the reporters this to damage a brother in blue it is an election that is all that is man versus man but then again the person that has done this gave it to the media like this spoonfed them totally disgraceful we can guess who it was but not going to name him you're the one that has done this you know who you are you have done this to other police officers don't worry when I see one person I will take you to your face this was wrong I won't threaten you no one will threaten you because you're going to cry to the police bosses and anyone else there to listen to you because that is what you're all about your sickening beyond belief is in that right?

For those who constantly say FOP is a joke you have no clue as to what it was like to have no representation. You should show some respect for the people who did the hard work to get representation.

I agree that retirees should not be so heavily represented because most are out of the loop. Having said that we all know it is a very small percentage of active officers who make even the slightest effort to be involved in or knowledgeable about the FOP and many fail to even vote.

As a member (I held no position in FOP) I have marched, gone to meetings, ridden buses to Springfield set up and worked phone and computer banks. I tried in vain to get my coworkers to do something as simple as pick up the phone and read the 2 line script to their elected representative. You get out what you put in.

This is totally wrong this sounds like the work of an individual that maybe was saddened that they did not get elected in an election where did this whoever it is how can you even hold your head up high how can you even say you're Chicago police officer how can you do this you're a sickening human being.

Graham was only a spoiler candidate. He ran to syphon off votes from Shields. The residency issue was a deliberate to torpedo him in the runoff and insure Dean's continued tenure.

Look for after the election for Graham to land some very nice retirement job.

You all have huge problems with this mess of an election. The biggest flag is that Graham sold his house to Leslie Smulavitz (spelling?) a retired Sergeant. Please don't tell me Graham didn't know this and Leslie didn't know Kevin was still on the job and moving to the Burbs. " Hey nephew Rahm, the guy I bought my house from is running for FOP President and is moving his family out of the city." Also I would see if any special price was agreed to, if it was sold under the market average, for there is nothing coincidental in this city. This whole thing really stinks with Deano being a do nothing and Graham being subject to being extorted by Rahm for having his family living outside the city.
This election should be nullified and new candidates should be sought. This will be cataclysmic for FOP and all the membership.

NEWS FLASH:

Picture on front page of today’s Sun-Times is from IAD file. Picture on page 4 is from the Sun-Times photographer. Investigation of Graham was completed several months ago before he announced he was running for office. Graham was followed 4 consecutive days to suburban home. During the internal review a supervisor from IAD gave Graham a heads up and he is staying at his sister’s. Kevin is not all that popular with everyone in the District.

There is an internal CR# at IAD as to who leaked the story. This goes with the CR# for leaking info on Lt.’s exam.

any city employee who does not move their family (spouse, kids, etc.) out of the city is not only a fool, but is depriving their family members out of a chance to live in a safe area, with decent schools; the employee can rent a small shack in the city, visit the family on off days and during vacations, and everyone is better off

Tiny dancer set the precedent. He had a few boxes in the basement of his house, while it was a rental property. That was enough for the residency requirement to become mayor.

Closets.....

We all have things in closets......

There are two types of closet contents....

Those that only you know.....

Those that others can prove.....

For example in 1997 when Denis Hastert was persuaded to become the Speaker of the House, he might have looked into his past history with little boys, and thought better of it.....

Odds are he would not be in the shit house today.....

Now lets look at Kevin's little predictament.....

Kevin had the option of being the candidate for president, or some lesser office.....

Kevin went for the gold.....knowing he had a big fat closet, full of shit....all provable by tax records, deeds, etc....

And he sold his house to Rahm's uncle.....

Talk about attracting attention.....

When presented with the choice of running for president.....I think about ninety percent of the working coppers would have waived off....if they had that stuff in their closet.....

Each and every one of them are smarter than Kevin.....

Now lets look at dean in this issue.....

He sat on the revelation until Shields was out of the race......

A pox upon both of their houses.....

My humble opinion.....

Dean, you are such a politician. You lie, you twist words, and you will do ANYTHING to get re-elected.
I would just like to address ONE of your statements (lies) on your mailer that I received today.
You state that the lie is-

"My opponents told you that we gave up money designated for our pension fund".

You claim the truth is-

"Not only is this completely untrue, for the first time in any of our lifetimes,our pension fund is finally guaranteed to receive more money deposited into our pension fund over the next 5 years than ever before. In December of 2016, we received the largest deposit in our pensions history."

So let me dissect that for all of you....
#1. this is a Straw man argument. The point, or "Truth", has nothing to do with the prior statement, or "lie"

#2. In reality your opponents have said-
"Dean Angelo supported SB 777 (Senate Bill 777) which gives the City 15 additional years to fund the police pension to 90%."
Which is 100% true. You did support SB777 Dean, and it gave the City 15 more years to pay. For those of you who do not want to look it up, here is the link....
http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/BillStatus.asp?DocNum=777&GAID=13&DocTypeID=SB&LegId=85970&SessionID=88

Here is a segment of what it says-
"Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Chicago Police and Chicago Firefighter Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. For payment years 2016 through 2020, specifies the amount for the City of Chicago's required annual contribution to each fund. Provides that beginning in payment year 2021, the City's total required contribution to each fund shall be an amount that is equal to the normal cost of the fund, plus an amount sufficient to bring the total assets of the fund up to 90% of the total actuarial liabilities of the fund by payment year 2055 (instead of 2040)"

See that part in bold there? See where it says at the end the city has until 2055 instead of 2040 to fund the pension up to 90%. That means the City has 15 MORE years. Prior to the Senate bill you supported Dean, the City had 15 LESS years. You gave the City 15 more years when you didn't have to AND GOT NOTHING IN RETURN FOR THE MEMBERSHIP FOR YOUR GENEROSITY. (Or did you?)
So there was already a bill in place which required the City to fully fund our pension by 2040 but you gave the City until 2055. As several candidates stated, and more specifically Mike Shields in his email, this Bill cost our pension close to 1 BILLION DOLLARS.

#3. Next is when your "truth" claims "for the first time in any of our lifetimes,our pension fund is finally guaranteed to receive more money deposited into our pension fund over the next 5 years than ever before".
No SHIT SHERLOCK, that is because there was already a bill in place which required the City to make those payments and had nothing to do with anything you or your administration did. But that is the beauty of it Dean, you stated a fact and did so making it look like it was all because of you.

#4 And finally the end statement which you put in pretty bold and underlined..."In December of 2016, we received the largest deposit in our pensions history." Again, quite the politician you are Dean. Way to state a fact while trying to make it look like you did something to achieve it when in reality that payment was happening regardless of who the FOP President was.

If you want to discuss any of this and prove me wrong please do.

Question. 36 years ago when I got called to come on the job, I was living a suburb with my wife and children. I asked the department if I could let my wife and children remain living in the suburb, and I would live in Chicago in an apartment. The department told me that our residency requirement policy is that the officer must reside with his wife and children in Chicago, and that the only time the spouse/children could live in the suburb is if there is a legal divorce. Is this true, or was I lied to, or is that an old rule?

Just an observation: The news media wants to tear your contract and all of its protections for coppers to pieces. So the FOP had to be doing something right, correct? Like CR by affidavit. That lowered CR numbers dramatically and it happened when Mark Donahue was president. Is there anything Dean Angelo got in the one contract he did that the City now wants back? Nope. Cuz Dean only gave stuff up. He is Rahm's "TRUE PARTNER" indeed. Time for a change.

Rahm announced he was dropping health care for all retirees about 8 months before Dean took office. FOP has funded 100k to the the lawyer the retirees hired. The case is still in court.

If a cop wants to risk it and try to live outside the city, register vehicles elsewhere more power to them. I won't judge, they know the risk. Fuck, Rahm wasn't a resident of Chicago and Obama wasn't even a US born citizen. If I knew I wouldn't get caught I'd have a house in Park Ridge or maybe even over the Wisconsin border. Dean is a snake, this whole ballot debacle is the straw that broke the camels back. Dean is trying to tilt the scales in his favor, screwing with the election process. Every member should have had a ballot, with ample time to mail it, no excuse.
We already have to deal with crooked Democrats and voting in this City and Country. Not here too. Fuck Dean. Rolling the dice with Graham. May God be with us whoever wins.

Dear Dean,
Did you work at the Colleges while on CPD time? How did your son get a sweet deal in 014? How about your Brother inLAw Ralphy Schuaf that drives around AlD. Burke? Didn't he drive around Gov Blago Was there dirty pool then too> Blago gave up his seat to Rham How did Schauf escape jail time? Ralphy ran for Trustee too


Something smells here

Yee who cast the first stone!!!

This thread is filled with posts from Graham or his supporters. Graham is playing everyone. Now, the connection to his juice is clear. The supervisors cater to him and leave the do-nothing airhead alone.

Living outside the city is cause to fire a police officer. There are way too many comments that downplay this incident.

If he is willing to gamble his job to live outside the city, then that is recklessness.

I do not want him handling our contract issues. He is playing everyone for his personal gain.

True, but never heard the four had to be consecutive, however, I was told, by a very good source when my investigation was unfounded, four of seven per week is the minimum required to satisfy the city.
