Not Our Culture?

  • Inspector General Joe Ferguson uncovered racist and sexist emails circulating in the Department of Water Management while investigating allegations that the son of a former alderman had used his city email account to sell guns, City Hall sources said Monday.

    Paul Hansen, a now-fired, $122,280-a-year district superintendent in the Department of Water Management, is the son of former longtime Ald. Bernard Hansen (44th). The elder Hansen presided over Wrigleyville during the Cubs’ marathon battle for lights at Wrigley Field.

    On Monday, Paul Hansen refused to comment about the gun or email investigation before hanging up on a Chicago Sun-Times reporter. His checkered past with the Department of Water Management includes allegations that his political clout helped him get his job back after a DUI conviction.

    [...]

    Emanuel was tight-lipped when asked Monday to define the role he accused Murphy of playing in the email scandal. But he referred obliquely to the broader investigation of alleged gun sales.

    “We were made aware from an IG report on one particular employee. But in that process, it exposed a culture in the Water Department and in the workplace that, in my view, does not represent what the city’s values are,” the mayor said.
We'd certainly welcome a clarification of Chicago's values as defined by Rahm:
  • Rahm claimed Chick-fil-A didn't reflect Chicago values because their company owners ascribe to the Catholic view of marriage - not that they discriminated (they didn't), but that they believe in it; Rahm then welcomed Louis Farrakhan, one of the bigger racists in our lifetimes, to the violence plagued streets of the south side;
  • Rahm got outraged when someone with pirated radio uses racial slurs over a police zone, but his people hire back a known drunk who dealt guns over the city's e-mail system and spread racist e-mails to subordinates and supervisors;
Rahm doesn't seem to have a handle on "values" at all.

UPDATE: More Chicago "culture:"
  • bribery for speed/red light cameras that enrich connected companies;
  • passing a one-day amnesty for an aldercreature to register guns;
  • crooked contracts that got the head of schools 7 years;
  • establishing "residency" via a forgotten wedding dress;
  • cheating on promotional exams;
The list is near endless.

Attention trolls There is a 99 percent chance Louis Farrakhan had a roll in the death of Malcom X. I know you would never believe Louis could do such a thing. I mean he loves all people right? How about looking up his views on Judaism.

Let's look at the Catholic view of marriage, and the orthodox Jewish version--- the thing is I use to go to the same synagogue as Rham did back in the 90s. Remember me Rahm, I was the kid who wore blue jeans to synagogue, you asshole.

Rahm like every pol, and in particular demorats, talks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time. And when scandal hits Rahm reverts to denying, deflecting, redirecting and blaming to move the spotlight. But you pull that same shit and you're taking days. That's the problem with this town. Those who are connected and the pols are on a merry-go-round pulling the brass ring everytime it comes around and when the buzzer sounds everyone switches rides and continue to pull the brass ring.

Nothing will happen to any of these fine upstanding men. With the rampant crime in the city done by young black and brown men, this will be swept under the rug. But it does bear to mention yet again, another city department with Directors to the Assistant to the Deputy, all making over 100k, plus pension, plus perks for a do nothing no show gig. These are the jobs no one else will do right? I would have to guess they are 11th and 19th Ward citizens with degrees for Ivy League colleges right? The book Boss by Mike Royko is still true to this day. Just total bullshit. If you are a contract worker your ass is fired immediately. But you can sell guns on work email, send racists and sexual email, and still keep your gig, and I bet he will work in another city department or become a lobbyist of some sort. But let's chase the man getting a 10,000 drop. Got it.

The mayor is obviously delusional no wonder he closed so many mental health centers putting the people in the community that need mental health services out on the street where they commit crimes some of them violent. Maybe this was done because the mayor knows that he would be committed into one of these institutions along with many of the alderman who is mindsets are totally against the will of the people.

Whtat you should take out of this is if you email anything with the Department EMAIL it will haunt you!

It can also be used for all those kool TO FROM exempts use to shame and scare you.
You see the exempt can never just toss an email and whatever you write becomes a fact.

So always email anything if you fear the merit white shirt. The clouted do it to you...

Yes, it is endless list of corruption and it will not stop until we have a true two party system in Cook County and Chicago. After the exposure of massive patronage and abuse of public money under former Gov. Quinn, I suspect that the same thing is going on under Preckwinkle in the County and Rahm in the city. But, the Tribune and Times just are interested in really digging into any of this. By, the way, don't hold your breath waiting for the Inspector General to really do anything about promotions cheating allegations.

Seems like I remember Hillary Clinton spouting all kinds of American values just before she got her butt kicked in the electoral college. The redder the map got that night, the more I realized most other people were like me and didn't believe in Hillary's values either.

I suspect Mayor Rahm, like Mrs. Clinton, has values that are in the minority. I suspect the liberal democrat values would be greatly appreciated in almost any communist country. Wish they would go to one and leave America and Americans alone. We don't need them.

The media working hard and is protecting Rahm's image and won't expand the story.
Rahm is a Democrat steeped in clintonism and a dedicated obamaphyte, lying isn't an option - its an inherent and cherished right that he embraced way before ever elected to Illinois politics, going back to his disruptive and reckless protestor participant days.

Chicago Values are the worth equivalent of a yay high stack of sweaty Bubble Bucks.
Screw Rahm and stay fetal.

Finally a alderfool answers SCC and it is not good. WTF man are we in North Korea?

We've asked for this in the past, as well as an update on the previous
years' budgets that don't seem to add up at the end of the year. it's
virtually impossible to get anything from CPS through the committee
which the mayor keeps his fist on.
It is pretty clear there is fraud but the council cannot compel the
CPS board or staff to testify nor hold them in contempt like they can
in Congress.
The only way right now is to get the CPS IG to be on top of every bad
deal, but they've also been hampered by lack of staff and
misdirection by CPS. it's going to take full removal of the board to
get major changes needed, and by then it will be harder to get out of
the hole they put CPS into. But we have been making the IG aware of
everything we can.

Not to mention how Rahm pals around with Chance the Rapper whos lyrics include such gems as "cops could eat a dick" and what comes off as pedophilia with "Look, let me put my mouth where you potty, boo" Who would talk like this to a grown person? Maybe I'm wrong tho. Chance could be romancing Rahm and/or Obama with that last line. But seriously

These are Obama and Rahm's values it's who they are. Why this guy is allowed anywhere near the schools and the children is beyond me. CPS should give his money back. The people should demand it. To top it off Obama is gonna build a recording studio and said he hopes chance comes to indoctrinate the kids with his 'art' wtf?

This was my post and no one came running to his defense, just as I imagined no one would. Every negative thing said about that asshole is 100% right. The first day he walked into the deuce, that jaggoff was saying he wouldn't be there long, through that smug, shitt eating grin on his face. Laurel was just along for the ride.
