Rahm's Campaign Cash

So where does it all go? Rahm says he returning most of it:
  • Now that he’s decided against running for re-election, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has indicated he plans to return the money donated to his campaign fund. Exactly how much money is involved has yet to be determined, but somewhere upwards of $7 million looks like a good bet. Emanuel had nearly $7.6 million in his campaign fund at the end of the June 30 reporting period.

    Since then, he’s raised at least another $775,000, records show. It will be a few more weeks before his campaign committee needs to report how much he’s spent during that same time period.

    One of the oddities of the mayor’s surprise decision is that his campaign was operating at full tilt right up until the moment he pulled the plug. That means there will be staff and other expenses that remain to be paid, including, one would assume, some senior employees who made a long-term commitment through the election and will need to be compensated appropriately.
So still plenty of room for "politics" to play a part in this. One has to wonder at the "favors" that might have been granted in the way of long term contracts while Rahm knew for months that he wouldn't run.

Michael Sacks, a Rahm donor from Highland Park is also interested in running. Watch the money. If you think that Lightfoot is bad, I couldn’t agree more. But watch the big money flow. That is where Rahm is putting it, and that is the person who is going to fuck us most.

Is Rahm going to give the President back the $50,000 he took from Trump, when he first ran for Mayor? Last year when McCarthy came down to the Academy to qualify for his IROCC, one of the coppers asked him how he felt about Rahm. And McCarthy said, and I was there, I heard it: "I can't even stand to see his face on the television. It makes me sick and I change the channel." At the time I thought McCarthy was over dramatic, but NOW I understand, AND I FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME WAY! But perhaps, the most disgusting part of seeing Rahm on T.V., is to watch so called Journalists, from the Northwestern School of Journalism continuing to perpetuate the myth that Rahm is the tough kid from Wilmette! RAHM IS THE ILLEGITIMATE MAYOR! RAHM GOT A SECOND TERM BY TOTAL DECEPTION AND CONCEALMENT OF THE MCDONALD VIDEO! "ME THINKS", SNEED, KASS,BROWN AND EVERY OTHER SYCOPHANT CHICAGO REPORTER NEEDS TO ASK RAHM, ONE SIMPLE QUESTION: "When did you FIRST see the McDonald video, and who was with you?" The answer to that may be the ultimate reason Rahm is done. And all of this raises a second point; how can the third or maybe fourth largest City in the nation, not have an Impeachment Process? Rahm will be floating around for another eight months, to what end? Is it not absurd, that the only way we can remove an Incompetent Mayor is by his death, or arrest by federal authorities! Term Limits & Impeachment must be given serious consideration for the future. Stay Safe & Strong! Baby "G"

He’s doing his pay-to-play politics, signing locked-in/long term deals before he bolts. Watch his every move at this point!

Don't count on it. Someone/somewhere needs an umbrella held over their head.

Can Rahm's supporters get their bribes (donations) back?

It’s times like this where we lean on the great Rock N Roll Philosopher Pete Townsend. History is most certainly repeating Herself with the lyric sung so elegantly by Mr. Daltry “Meet The Old Boss. Same as the Old Boss.”
Bill Daley taking the Mayoral spot places The CPD/CFD again at the mercy of The Daley Crime Family.
That’s a big FAT kick in the Go Nadular region if I ever heard of a testicular smashing Event.

There should be a bait and switch rule and an escrow forfeit, like earnest money.

Rotten Rahm never gave a dime back to President Donald J. Trump even though he blasts the Presidents policies.
What’s surprising, he pulled a Louie GutterRatz and Mostly-Braun, they all do it.
But Dems donors don’t care, they were paid back very handsomely through special infrastructure deals and banking investments.

Remember... ShortShanks went of to Europe and China just before he decided not to seek re-election.
Just took off to China just three weeks ago...”on business”.

Mmmm- mm- mmm.

That was so obviously his plan, eight years ago.
However, that ship has sailed. He's a failed mayor and his record (and his murder rate) prove it. The party has totally sidelined him. He's toast.
