Did you forget Jeremiah Kevin O’Driscoll? I did not. A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of working with Kevin. Years were days as we documented Kevin’s Workers’ Compensation case. Kevin was great because he was very vocal regarding the shit medical treatment he had thanks to Alderman Edward Burke and the Chicago Aviation Department. Kevin kept telling me what the painters were doing regarding the toxic chemicals they workers with and were breathing in and rubbing on their hands. Being a victim of injury while working for the City of Chicago is akin to a death sentence. Alderman Edward Burke took no bid venders money like it was going out of style. Burke never gave a damn about the people he was elected to protect.
I enjoyed hundreds of phone calls with Kevin. I do know how much he loved his son. I do not think Kevin was the same after his injuries. His body was destroyed. Many people have no idea of the side effects of prescription drugs given to injured City workers. Drugs are given to delay treatment and mask the true extent of injuries. Unless you saw the actual damage to Kevin’s body, you would have no idea how damaged he was. I was amazed at how many people went to Mr. O’Driscoll’s Mass at St. Juliana Church in Chicago’s Northwest Side. Please google Kevin O’Driscoll’s videos on YouTube.
I hope and pray the Chicago F.B.I. investigate the criminal way injured city workers are treated. I hope Rahm Emanuel and Alderman Edward Burke choke on the money they stole from the injured. Rest in Peace Kevin. I will never forget you.

“We are in big trouble, Rahm Emanuel will fire the Commissioners when this gets out”, claimed a Department of Water Management source. Update” at least 16 Chicago Water Department employees were exposed to mercury. A spill two days ago should have been cleaned up the right way, but many employees were allowed to walk through the spill. Another source said, “this has happened in the past and it is no big deal”. “A regular vacuum was used and made the spill airborne, that where someone’s fucked up”. According to another source, Juan Merced a pipe yard foreman and Environmental Coordinator took over for a shaken, unhinged, and harried Ralph “the chameleon” Chiczewski. Ralph really fell apart during this stressful event. The Jardine plant has no leadership in place when things get stressful. Members of the Chicago Media called but refuse to expose the crisis.
Private contractors will need to handle the crisis and make sure the Illinois Environmental Agency and the State of Illinois Public Health are informed. Many people are not aware the National Response Center must be notified, but Ralph “the chameleon” Chiczewski cited “Homeland Security concern”s. If you get the FEDS in the Jardine Plant, we will never get rid of them. Many toxic spills are everywhere. Lori Lightfoot needs to drain this swamp.
Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot will soon take of and control the City of Chicago. Some of you might be wondering why Chicago Clout has not adjusted Lori Lightfoot’s picture. Well, Lori Lightfoot is going to be a great Mayor. As a City of Chicago employee and fierce supporter of Lori Lightfoot, I am ready for change. Real Change. I am also ready for some transparency. I am also ready for talented, college educated, licensed professionals to take over the Department of Water Management. Lori Lightfoot was already at the troubled Department to get her take on why the Department of Water Management is run by a bunch of goofballs that manage to keep the Department in the newspapers and media on a regular basis. Despite Ralph Chiczooski, the commander of mercury spills and cover-ups, word keeps getting out of all the scams at the Water Department.
According to my sources, Lori Lightfoot is going to take a buzz saw to all the goofs that have made a mockery of a once proud department. Lori was asking people about their experience and credentials to run a near billion-dollar department. What would you expect from a Licensed Attorney with impeccable credentials? One guy said he was a cement finisher and went to college for a couple of years and left after acting the fool. Blamed was Rahm Emanuel that counted on Carrie Austin and Burke to suggest unqualified people that continue to make bad decisions. Rahm Emanuel has just bloated the department with friends he owed political favors to. Also, Chicago Clout will expose all the promotions at the Water Department soon.
Yesterday, the Department of Water Management had another spill of hazardous material. Many Water Department employees were walking through the mercury yesterday and it went everywhere. The City of Chicago Water has mercury in the potable drinking water. The Mercury goes well with all the lead. Mercury in the Jardine plant is everywhere. Specialty companies had to be hired to pick up the massive spills. Jars have broken and spilled everywhere in the past. Some of the mercury spills happened because the water department needed mercury for their monometers. Soon Chicago will have a new Mayor that will open the criminal and reckless activities that continue to make your drinking water unsafe. Just like Rahm Emanuel, make sure you drink bottled water. Rahm has made all Chicago media coverup for his tricks, when will they put their boy pants on? We will also explain why old commissioners are still meeting with Connor soon.
Chicago Mayor in waiting for Lori Lightfoot wants you. I hope all the people that have ideas to make Chicago better will step forward and be willing to clean house. I might also be a great chance to show all your real skills in managing, fixing, budgeting. Having a team that knows where the bodies are buried is a must. At the rate Chicago is going, you might not have a pension. I hope all the people that want a better future step forward and help. I am donating my time to fix the Department of Water Management.
Stop complaining and let’s get things the way professional corporations are run. Honesty and ethics are needed. If you do not step forward, nothing will change. You can also donate your ideas. Let’s roll Chicago!!!!!
Ole Joe Ferguson wants to move up after failure at the Office of Inspector General. You would really think ole Joe would hang up his boots and just go away. Two more years are in store for all City of Chicago Employees of a silly goof that has not made any indents into any corruption at Chicago City Hall. Let’s review, I can testify Joe is a complete failure at investing actual crime scenes. Sure enough, weeks and months later, Joe and his team of high school grades, former cops, college trainees, and political appointees investigate criminal activities.
I can testify for a fact, I.G. flunkies try to skewer investigations toward the outcome they desire. Not long ago, a Chicago Cop on the Northwest Side of Chicago attacked a crew of City Workers sent to determine the cause of his sewer backup. When the acting detective was not happy, he attacked the crew. Joe Ferguson sent out a complete idiot and he listened to the cop only. He never investigated the entire group in people that were involved. Sure enough, Ole Joe, requested the phone records of the person attacked and not the Cop that made all these wild claims. Sure enough, when the case was appealed by the Plumbers’ Union at the Chicago Personnel Board, it was dismissed.
None of the cop’s pals showed up for court, and a complete loser that made the case for Joe Ferguson already left the I.G. to work in another state. What a failure. Chicago has paid for many investigations and they end up dismissed. Joe is just a puppet for Rahm Emanuel. Joe goes after low hanging fruit like employees that that steal time and other minor crimes. When was the last time you heard Joe Ferguson making a multi-million dollar bust? Joe Ferguson always makes time for Fran Spielman, his number one fan and WTTW Chicago tonight. Minor investigations are of no use to get Chicago’s dire financial health back in order.
Joe is attempting to sell the public he is helping the Chicago F.B.I. I guess he shuffles papers and picks up after the F.B.I. agents’ dogs. Now Joe is selling us he wants to be a States Attorney of Cook County. But he is being smug and secretive. Joe Ferguson only accomplished bulling city workers by telling them their right to remain silent means nothing. Joe scares city workers into talking to them and their crappy union representatives go along so them will not have to challenge the I.G. in court. Amazing.
If Ole Joe will run for anything but dog catcher, you can bank on me to exposing this goof. Trying to ride the wave of Chicago’s reform agenda will not allow Joe on the train. He has enough pensions now. Just let him retire.
For two decades Chicago has discovered and uncovered major multi-million-dollar crimes and insider dealings. As a goodbye present, the Chicago media is allowing Rahm Emanuel a free pass out the door, claiming a “sprint to the finish line”. You can dress a poop up in a tuxedo, but the odor will always knock you out.
The City of Chicago has always placed employees at a paygrade beyond they capacity. It is not done by accident. The real insiders that control the Department of Water Management do so through a clever mix of consultants, advisors, Alderman, and advisors. The management team is always spending time infighting and wasting time checking up on crews and damage control. Then, there has been sex, drugs, and parties to calm their nerves. Promotions of grade school and high school graduates are by design. Most private companies of this budget employee the highest skilled workforce. The employees are well paid, and performance is reviewed.
When you have a situation like this, calamity rules the day. The management is always looking to put out fires and find blame for all the disasters. The management team also knows, the same people causing the problems, are the same butts they are kissing for their job. Take Alderman Edward Burke, Ole Eddy has made promotions at the Department of Water Management for decades. He also has the power to stop any promotions he does not want. We will expose the promotions Eddy made just recently.
Right now, the City of Chicago Department of Water Management is under a major investigation by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. One high ranking employee was just ousted for his alleged part in not making sure the Water Mains and Sewer Repair projects were properly installed. Most Chicago Taxpayers are not aware, the public is on the hook to replace tens of millions of dollars of water main and sewer installations that are too close together. Also, many of the “private drains” or the sewers from the house to the street failed to install ductile water main and proper fittings when crossing the potable water mains. Many contractors were smart enough to hire Mara Georges to lobby Alderman Burke (give em a cut) to handle the Legislative and Administrative issues to fix problems with the Chicago City Council. Right now, the Department of Water Management has hired Ralph “the chameleon” Chiczewski, to fight any requests for information on the arrangement Connor made with CTR consulting. Also. Connor is hiding the removal of Wallace “Catfish” Davis to take the blame on the massive problem. One of the House Drain Inspectors, that was reported by Chicago Clout on the Paul Hansen assault of a homeowner, is also missing in action.
The requirement being cited requires water mains to be separated from sewers (35 IAC 653.119). This is under Title 35 of the Illinois Administrative Code (Environmental Protection), Section 653.119.
According to a complaint made by a handsome State of Illinois Certified Plumbing Inspector, the City of Chicago has violated Title 35 Board Rules of the Illinois Pollution Control Board. Chicago’s most powerful plumber will continue to expose the corruption and insider thefts and scams. Right now, we are investigating the lack of any pipe to make these connections. Another special emergency order is in the works, but millions of dollars of downtime are expected. If you have any 6-inch ductile water main in your inventory please contact us at Chicago Clout. We are demanding an immediate investigation in Mr. Cheeks actions in all these matters. I am certain Lori Lightfoot should be made aware of these crimes before she takes office. You can try to make up bullshit excuses Rahm Emanuel, but this will not go away. The Chicago media must do its job and expose the ongoing corruption scheme at the Department of Water Management.
Alderman Edwarts Burke is defying the Chicago F.B.I. The Chicago Underworld supports him, but behind the shadows. Mayor Elect Lori Lightfoot will put a boot in this clown’s ass, day one. Alderman Burke has a major lawsuit filed by Jay Stone, Chicago’s most powerful advocate for good government, and Patrick McDonough, Chicago’s most powerful plumber. Years before Burke was under the watchful eye of the Chicago F.B.I., a numerous amount of FOIA requests were made to make the case against the slickest crook in Chicago. Burke had a long career of skimming off the judge’s money and the workers’ compensation program designed to reward loyal alderman and mayors. The vendors that did business with Burke knew to donate an envelope or political donations.
The biggest suckers Burke ever fleeced was Star Wars creator George Lucas.
“Any alderman who’s gonna try to align themselves with Ed Burke at this time — we’re gonna make sure that gets very public and exposed . . . I’m going to do everything I can to shine a light on that,” Lightfoot told the Sun-Times.
The Chicago Special Crimes Unit will get an amazing number of files to describe how lawyers, alderman, unions, and Burke conspired to steal money from crippled City Workers and reward themselves with dirty money. The pubic got screwed by paying injured workers food bills, social security benefits, and welfare. All were involved. Hired Truck scammers were also involved.
When Lori Lightfoot shines a light in Alderman Burke’s game, he is going to lose. Now is the time reformers must go all out to remove this crook from Chicago.
Note to Chicago media, please stop calling Alderman Burke the most powerful Alderman, it is really getting old.
What a great victory for Chicago. The Department of Water Management counted on Toni Preckwinkle to win. Rahm Emanuel placed many political hires at the DOWM to cover his banker friends when he left. We at Chicago Clout exposed the contracts and phony consultants that milk Chicago dry. What most people fail to realize, Rahm hired all these “experts” to obtain political kickbacks and do an “end run” around hiring local blacks to good paying city jobs. Many blacks and Hispanics were shut out of the gravy train so suburban political operatives could prosper.
Chicago Clout insiders were at the Lori Lightfoot victory party and I was impressed with the caliber of the attendees. These were Chicago folks of all walks of life. Many were very well educated, successful, and professional. Gone were the “Alderman Edward Burke” types, you know, high school and grade school educated, sloppy, street talkers. Burke has destroyed Chicago by stopping people’s
When you have a high caliber of attendees, you also will notice who sticks out. In attendance was Ralph “the chameleon” Chiczewski, a high ranking DOWM Commissioner that sneaks around while other people work hard. I was honored to attend as a member of the press at the Conrad Hilton Event. According to a DOWM insider, Ralph was sent to spy on who Lori Lightfoot had in attendance. If Toni Preckwinkle won, these employees would be fired, harassed, retaliated against, and never promoted. That is the way Chicago Old style politics works. It is all about power, getting kickbacks from contractors, selling tickets to political events, obtaining gift cards, envelopes with cash, favors, free hotel rooms, and other dirty tricks. Ralph loves his police type cruiser that he parks illegally all the time. The retired cop was a thorn in Andy Thayer’s booty years ago.
Please enjoy a picture of Ralph “the chameleon” Chiczewski. I hope he was at work today snitching to Commissioner Connor and other high-ranking officials. Most Commissioners were at Toni Preckwinkle’s final curtain call. Ralph’s picture reflects what a DOWM Management Commissioner looks like. Real Class? Time for Lori Lightfoot to audit all jobs, promotions, and consulting contracts. These jobs need to return to Chicago residents of all color. We also need Rahm Chiczewski to stop using Homeland Security to hide all the fraud and waste.
