Fran Spieman exposes Chicago Steets and Sans Sex Offender

Chicago has it rear-end in a trick bag again. Thanks to Fran Spielman and a "Chicago Clout Inspector General" this is exposed. Clout heavy employees have enjoyed a separate set of rules when punishment was dealt. Before this article, this clout heavy employee with other family on the City Payroll could have just got his job back as if nothing happened. This did not slip away because an entire group of City Workers are sick of the unfair treatment. As I see this, this employee might be allowed to return to work since he did not use a computer on city time. The crime did not happen on city time so they would allow his return. If he would be allowed back to work, that would allow every employee fired for behavior unbecoming and every residency case to be overturned. Any crime not on city time would not affect the job status. So mark your calendars as this will be watched. Read article below. Patrick McDonoughCity worker admits trying to meet child

A city hoisting engineer must register as a sex offender, stay away from children and stay off the Internet for two years after pleading guilty to indecent solicitation of a child, officials said Monday.
Dominick Mancini — a 13-year-veteran of the Department of Streets and Sanitation who makes $41.25 an hour — was arrested Jan. 12 after arranging a meeting with a young girl with whom he had spent months chatting on the Internet.
In fact, Mancini had been corresponding with a detective for the Western Springs Police Department. When he showed up at their appointed meeting place at 55th and Brainerd in Countryside, he was arrested and charged with indecent solicitation of a child.
Last week, Mancini, 45, pleaded guilty to the Class 2 felony and was sentenced to two years probation. During that time, he must register as a sex offender, have no contact with children and stay off the Internet, according to a spokesman for the state's attorney's office.
Since July, 1994, Mancini has worked as a hoisting engineer in Streets and Sanitation's Bureau of Street Operations.
He has been placed on leave with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation aimed at finding out whether any of the Internet chats occurred on city computers or on city time.
When city workers are arrested in Chicago, the department where they work is notified immediately. Since Mancini was arrested in the suburbs, Streets and San got no such notice. Officials were apparently unaware of Mancini's legal troubles until late last week, when Inspector General David Hoffman got wind of the arrest and guilty plea.
