Mendoza Leaked Video

  • There’s never been much doubt that Susana Mendoza would jump into the crowded race to replace Mayor Rahm Emanuel as soon as she was safely re-elected as state comptroller.

    But what little doubt there was disappeared on Friday.

    WBEZ-FM Radio got a hold of a video of Mendoza declaring her candidacy for mayor.

    Reporter Dan Mihalopoulos tweeted a short clip of the video where Mendoza, dressed in a grayish-green cable sweater, is saying, “I’m Susana Mendoza and I’m running for mayor of Chicago. And I ask you to join me on this journey together.”

    The premature release comes at a difficult time for Mendoza. It gives her Republican opponent for state comptroller Darlene Senger more ammunition to say Mendoza has one foot out the door.
The Hispanic coalition has been very quiet as the election approached. One political arm or another bought off Chewy with Gutierrez's spot so he wouldn't fracture the Hispanic vote the way the black vote has been splintered.

The obvious goal here is to get Mendoza into the runoff and then cobble together a coalition of Hispanic and liberal white voters to roll over the Prickwrinkle machine. Someone suggested that the biggest loser here is Prickwrinkle herself and now she has to back out gracefully. We're of the opinion that this might just derail the Vallas campaign and cripple McCarthy. We're also wondering if Prickwrinkle jumped in to drive out lesser funded black candidates and stop Vallas from peeling off black parents who remember the schools ran (semi-)smoothly when he was in charge.

Does it really matter anymore? There 500 people running for mayor now. And not a single one has a clue and will continue to destroy this place

She’s following the footsteps of every other scumbag lying deciptfull Chicago politician. Fooling everyone that she only cares about being the controller. That way she has a back up plan if she doesn’t win mayor. Oh boy....premature video out. What a snake. Gee thanks for caring. Now she won’t get my vote for anything. Typical jerk

McCarthy and Vallas might want to take a good long look and then beat feet to Susana's door.

McCarthy might want to be Superintendent again (oh no!) and Vallas might want the schools job again. Hey, it beats being unemployed when either or both are not in the final two. Jumping on the Susana Express train now is better than being left at the station with no favor owed to you.

Toni needs a good excuse to drop out before she gets embarrassed. Mild heart attack? Mysterious illness? Or just "voluntarily" throw her support to Susana saying she now realizes two full-time jobs will mean neither position would be getting her full attention and, as the head of the Cook County Democratic Party, anoint Susana as a great candidate. Toni can play nice, look magnanimous, not be embarrassed and make Susana a friend, all in one move.

Besides Preckwinkle, McCarthy and Vallas the other announced candidates are Daley, Brown, Lightfoot, Wilson, Chico, Enyia, Green, Kozlar, LaRaviere, Roney and Sales-Griffin. Joyce is still on the fence.

But what do any of them have to offer that will help Mendoza? Enyia can contribute two rappers. Brown is getting indicted. Wilson can give her $20 dollars cash money. Chico could pair with Vallas again and run the schools. Lightfoot can deliver some lesbian votes. And, because of the name and previous employment in high government positions, it would be beneath Daley to be a second fiddle and, on the surface, the remaining five candidates have nothing to offer.

It could all come together for Mendoza. A coalition of Preckwinkle, McCarthy, Vallas and Chico behind her and an endorsement by Daley just might make her the second female Mayor of Chicago. We shall see.

Related to the political topic:
Just wanted to say I am so sick of these scamming Democrats

On the Northwest side (016 District) CPD Sergeant Amiee Kessem is running for Il. State Rep. in the 19th State Rep. District against incumbent Robert Martwick. I will preface this by saying that I am retired from CPD and that I do not know Kessem nor ever ran into her while on the job. My point is that she is really getting smeared by Martwick in this race. So far I have received 14 glossy mailers and numerous robocalls from the Martwick campaign attempting to besmirch Kessem. Martwick says Kessem opposes a woman's right to choose even in cases of rape and incest. He says she will elimate breast cancer screenings fo 12,000 women. She will allow dangerous criminals and the mentally insane to walk into gun shops and walk out with deadly military style assault rifles. Can Martwick prove any of this?

Pretty inflammatory rhetoric right? So I went to Kessem's website and looked on the internet for news stories to see Kessem stands for any of these accusations. I found none. Kessem's website platform is about reducing taxes, spending, and career politicians like Madigan. Kessem pointed out Martwick has endorsed Preckwinkle for Mayor, Foxx for SA, Arena for Ald., and Berros for Assessor.

On one of those glossy mailers from Martwick there appears a photo of him and another man, two women an 3 children taken in downtown Chicago. The two women and one of the children are wearing the "pussyhats" (remember Madona wearing one at the protest march in Washington when she said she wanted to blow up the White House). Maybe the photo was taken at the Chicago protest march.

I think it is clear who to vote for, please support one of our own, call your friends, relatives and neighbors, start destroying the Chicago Machine.

Susan Mendoza, the protégé of Michael Madigan becomes the Comptroller, she then withdraws from the office to run for Mayor of Chicago. Then Govenor JB the Hutt, the protégé of Michael Madigan, appoints another clout person to fill the remainder of Mendoza's term. This is how it is done in Illinois. Like a quick game of three card monte on the voters. You lose!

I’m hesitant to say Mendoza is pro-police, because I don’t want the Chicago media to attack her for supporting us, but it’s inevitable. As a state representative, she was often our strongest or only “D” vote. She’s not a lunatic socialist like Toni and is fiscally responsible. Of the current candidates, she’s the only one who wouldn’t turn Chicago into a giant Gary, Indiana. I support her 100%.

The entire Mendoza scam was cooked up , engineered and orchestrated by Rahm and madigan. This was all done by Rahm ass kissing pr pos Eric Adelstein who is on Hillary’s team. Rahm is the evil cop hating pos who has been sucking up to Latinos and illegals with the express purpose of putting madigan girl Mendoza in. He needs to be indicted. The entire plan is to eliminate any possibility of an “evil” white man being elected. Anyone who votes for these scum is insane.

And let's not forget:

In 2017, Mendoza made headlines when she chased down a hit-and-run driver, securing his image and vehicle license number on video before he fled the scene. That allowed police to track him down and charge him. Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass wrote, "In chaotic moments, people reveal themselves. And Mendoza showed she is one tough lady. She confronted a certified Chicago tough guy, a two-time ex-con. She warned those nearby, she announced she'd called police, she backed the tough guy down and he finally ran away.

Why should anyone be surprised with Martwick's LIES. He is a Democratic. They lie. It is a prerequisite of being one. Can anyone tell me what the Democratic Party stands for? It is no secret that if the FAT ONE gets elected governor he will raise your taxes. Will he pay down the debt. NO. He will add more gift giving programs so that the 'PEOPLE" will be dependent on the Democratic Party. It is a dam shame that the Republicans got Rauner as governor. He sold out the Conservative base when he signed the abortion bill. This State if so wrong. We deserve what we get.

>>>>> Eric Adelstein, Mendoza’s political consultant: "l hope she (Susana Mendoza) runs … because the city could really use her energy, her drive and her vision." <<<<<

Simply marvelous. So Eric, I guess her "energy" will solve the out-of-control Violent Crime problem. Her "drive" will solve the city's dire financial situation -- aka on the verge of Bankruptcy. And Susana's "vision" will solve the Pension disaster.

How about that she has management experience on the scale of running a large city and can do the job. Is that too much to ask?

Or are we past the point where people who want to live off the taxpayers will have actual QUALIFICATIONS and share those with the voters?? Or are we at the point of no return and from now on it's; 'Vote For Me' because I have the 'right' body parts, or the 'right' skin color, or sleep with people who have 'the correct' (aka: in vogue) gender.

btw, Mendoza's: "...join me on this journey together” is a little too reminiscent of Hillary's stoo-pid 'I'm with her' campaign slogan for me.

ps: Go Bears! It's Nov 5th and Da Bears are in 1st place. Who'd a thunk it! ;-)

How much more proof do you need to know Mendoza and Preckwinkle are out for themselves, they could care less about the city or its people. Wake up Chicago/Illinois.

Civilian here.

Here's an excerpt from John Kass' column of November 2, 2018 with his keen observation that "....there’s nothing remotely coincidental about last-minute leaks in the final days of a campaign":

"The race for mayor of Chicago.

Just as I sat down to write about last-minute leaks, a last-minute “leak” became news: a video for Susana Mendoza, running for state comptroller on Tuesday, in which she announces her mayoral campaign.

“I’m Susana Mendoza, and I’m running for mayor of Chicago, and I ask you to join me on this journey together,” she says.

She has charisma. I like her and have predicted she’ll be mayor someday. But she’s Madigan’s candidate on this adventure. And though she risks little — she’ll keep the comptroller’s job if she’s not the mayor — she’ll still be offered up as the fresh face of politics. But she needs media cheerleaders to ignore her Boss Madigan connections.

Madigan might end up with the governor’s office in one hand and the mayor’s office in the other.

He knows that all politics is local, and there’s nothing remotely coincidental about last-minute leaks in the final days of a campaign."

Shifty Sanctuary City Democrats running two campaigns at a time and nothing but donor money (separate accounts) to lose.
ShortShanks 3.0 is only in for the interim transfer of financial interests of SS2 and Rahm.
SS3 will drain and pilfer the City before handing it over to radicals like PrickWrinkles, FxxxUp or LightLoafer or set up another SS4 with a multi-term empire.

If Mandozer pops in the race then watch for another soros obamic DC hack cracka like Chunkin Duncan,Quigley,Claypool to roll up.
The goal is to eliminate Vallas and Gmac and put in a female minority on or before 2023.

Get out an Vote today or tomorrow.
Get rid of every Democrat incumbent possible.

Chicago federal reserve recommends the state impose an extra a state wide property tax of $100 per $1,000 value of a home restricted to pay off pension problem. So a house valued at $250,009 would pay another $2,500 a year in addition to regular property taxes
