look forward to a new Chicago Clout T.V. show just a couple of weeks away. I decided to have Michael Volpe on the show because people need to understand corruption from a fresh perspective. Our viewers at Can-TV want a viewpoint from someone that does not work for the City of Chicago. Fair enough. We are going to re-explore the Hired Truck Scandal and the Hiring Scandals that have plagued Mayor Daley and his Administration. We are also going to look into the Chicago unions, make a determination of their actual value to the Chicago employees. We are again making an invitation to Journeymans' Plumbers Local 130 to appear on the show and tackle the tough questions. Any unions representing Chicago employees are welcome. Dennis Gannon let his slip show with the pension mess, a possible conflict of interest? Special thanks to my 726 Teamster pal for the "Mayor Daley" tee-shirt. Patrick McDonough.
Developer gets 2 years
A developer was sentenced to two years in prison Wednesday after he admitted passing a bribe to a Chicago city plumbing inspector. Beny Garneata, 44, of Lincolnwood, reportedly was hoping for probation or home confinement. Federal prosecutors said Garneata paid off a plumbing inspector $7,000. Thanks to Chicago Sun-Times for this follow-up story. Patrick McDonough
"It would be a big positive if he were there and arguable a bigger negative if he weren't there and all other heads of state did show up," said Dick Pound, IOC member. That is one heck of a quote friends. I do not put profanity on Chicago Clout, but this is silly, really, really, silly. Patrick McDonough.
