Chicago's Ethically Challenged Mayor
"Chicago" and "Ethically Challenged Mayor" may seem redundant like "striped tiger," but former Obama aide and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was pressured into paying back $14,000 in travel expenses after the Chicago Tribune analyzed the records. Of course, this will not deter largely mindless voters from voting for his re-election. He also has a $ 1.l million campaign chest whose donors will be rewarded with contracts, appointments and "looking the other way." The mayor and City Council have blamed a lack of gun controls for the city's high violent crime rate and spent much time, money and energy dodging federal court Second Amendent decisions. However, look for him to be re-elected. The culture of corruption in Chicago is safe.
