Rahm is too connected to jail.
Or… is he?
The Chief of Police was fired by Rahm for covering up a police murder. Covered up and paid millions in taxpayer money to the family of the murdered 17 year old black youth. Covered up for 13 months while Rahm gets himself re-elected. Then the head of the “Independent” Police Review Authority, who was personally appointed by Rahm, quits. Next the Chief of Detectives unexpectedly and suddenly leaves.
The CEO of the Chicago Public Schools was imprisoned for fraud. Appointed Board of Education members profit from closing schools and paying charters, charters they are invested in. The Chief Financial Officer and the Chief Accountability Officer of the Chicago Public Schools both jump ship right after Rahm loses an Illinois Supreme Court case which tried to claim that Chicago doesn’t have enough money to pay its debts for teacher and public employee pensions. However Rahm continues to give away millions and millions of tax dollars annually to the connected and their connections. DePaul University, an expensive private Catholic university, will receive millions for building a second basketball arena. Billionaire George Lucas will get megabuck tax dollars to build his museum. The list goes on and on.
But Rahm claims to not have enough money to pay teachers or to keep schools from closing. Even more teachers are scheduled to be fired and even more programs will be cut in schools where children are struggling to survive and become educated. Teachers have a strike authorization vote on December 9, 2015.
So this is where the “schooling of Rahm” stands as of this moment. Two different sets of situations from the police and the teachers could cause the Rahm phenomenon to implode.
Rahm Emanuel is one of the most connected and powerful Democrats in America. He forces a severe Tea Party ideology and a pure Republican austerity program onto Chicagoans. Corruption is bipartisan; billionaires and their political cronies collude and steal from the middle class. The sole ideology is destructive greed. Rahm may drag down Hillary and the entire Democratic Party during the next election.
Yet, somehow, Rahm isn’t even under federal investigation. Why?
