I had not heard this, but is it surprising? :no: :sad:

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2013-08-20/news/ct-met-city-comptroller-indicted-0820-20130820_1_ohio-contract-lobbyist-federal-court
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration on Monday produced a letter showing it knew about questions surrounding Amer Ahmad and a controversial government contract in Ohio before the mayor hired him as Chicago's comptroller in April 2011.


This is just the mindset of Obama's former chief of staff, but Obama and the rest of the Chicagoans in the White House or even Rahm while he was there acted like saints :bow: :bow: :bow:

I just can't comprehend the level of denial that exists in the people that trust any politician, let alone this crowd of crooks.

I like this statement.
The administration has said Emanuel didn't know about Ahmad's federal problems until the former aide was indicted last week.

This is worse. It's the I'm not corrupt. I'm just incompetent and clueless argument.

Pretty simple logic there. No one from Chicago is corrupt, history is not a measure of truth and expectations. Peoples past actions do not matter. We are all innocent until proven guilty, even when under indictment for a crime. Don't look at what I have done to expect to see what I will do. Of course I am not a criminal, I am just criminally ignorant and flagrantly stupid. :beer:

The thing I do not get, Rahm chose this guy to be in charge of people's pension money. People rightly flip out when their pensions get wrecked. They put no connection between this kind of cronyism and the harmful results that they suffer.

This is just one of a million reasons I hate pensions relative to IRAs. I do not want my financial health in my old age in the hands of corrupt or incompetent cronies, politicians, or anyone that has nothing to lose compared to what I do if they screw it up. What am I going to do, work another 20 or 30 years to make it back?
