Illinois State Representative Kelly Cassidy… another one trick pony
The Chicago Gay Pride Parade has some tires slashed by some 11th Ward goofballs. Almost every reporter in Chicago felt a need to defend the gay community. They were so outraged. The big quote was Kelly Cassidy just another political hack from the Andersonville and appointee because she is gay. She replaced Harry Osterman, another one trick pony that never did a mentionable thing in the state house. Both of these goofs will not debate and hide behind the Democratic Party. Both are professional victims, making a republican ransom for their services. I wish the reporters would just talk about the Gay Community's agenda and what they are trying to accomplish. I think the Gay community is a little farther along than the press gives them credit for. I just want to know how this could happen with new Mayor Rahm Emanuel? Where are the cops we were promised? Good night dudes.

Young man killed again in Chicago, Hirsh and Kildare
June 14, 2011 was another long day for City of Chicago investigators. A young man was killed in cold blood again. The intersection was Kildare and Hirsh. The newspapers took special interest in this killing despite the constant crime and murders on the west side. Just a couple a days ago, a shooter was left to die in the streets for hours, just blocks away. He was left to die because he was a well-known stickup man. This neighborhood has black folks sitting around most the day on the sidewalk and in front of their buildings drinking and smoking pot right out in the open. Jobs are non-existent here, just Negros driving around, looking for things to do. The Mexicans are muscling in and seem to find work. They are buying the run down homes and fixing them up. Rich Daley left these folks with nothing, not even hope. The building doors are left open and you can see the dirty walls. The money in Chicago is downtown; the jobs in Chicago are downtown. This is a lousy place to live. The young are killed in Chicago every day and that will never change. Chicago has a new Mayor and he will get the same results. Photo by Patrick McDonough
Shannon Rovers Fired…Tel Aviv Troubadours Chicago's Official band
The Rahm Emanuel Administration in Chicago has been making some progress moving Chicago in the right direction. Richard Daley and the Irish Hillbillies from the 11Th Ward have looted Chicago to bankruptcy. Along the miserable ride of the Daley Administration was the horrible screeching, bellowing, and barking of the Shannon Rovers. The Shannon Rovers are a bunch of wild men and women giving Irish music a bad name. I hope to never hear these ear ache makers again. The Shannon Rovers are out and the Tel Aviv Troubadours are in. The Tel Aviv Troubadours play some of the most beautiful music known to mankind. The musicians are classically trained in the finest Universities in the United States. We are looking for some back-up players in case we have a gig at the Chicago Symphony of the New York Philharmonic. Please contact us at Chicago Clout to be part of the best band in Chicago!

Chicago Department of Water Managment Employee assaulted June 5, 2011
June 5, 2011 was not a good day for City of Chicago Department of Water Management Plumber Patrick McDonough. Another employee took it upon himself to allegedly call Patrick McDonough a “fu*king Asshole.” Patrick McDonough takes pride in keeping his assigned vehicle clean and neat. Night crew workers have been sleeping all night in his truck, wearing out the air-conditioning, and taking parts to fix up their trucks. One of the laborers took some stolen parts back from another driver’s truck, and you guessed it, Patrick McDonough got blamed. This is the third alleged assault from this driver according to sources. This driver was caught smoking in the trucks before and a verbal reprimand was given. A boss blamed the leak desk when they were not able to get ahold of him. Another assault happened again while the Plumber was attempting to leave home. The Chicago Police were called and the driver admitted to the verbal assault. The police said this is an internal matter and left. They said the same thing when a State Senator Munoz’s brother also allegedly assaulted another city worker. Both workers were drug tested which makes no sense at all. The Violence in the Workplace rules were not followed and the Water Department has still not made provisions to assist the victim with needed paperwork followup. Supervisors were also interfering with attempting to settle the matter “off the books” on Wednesday. The Office of the Inspector General are still not providing answers. I will get back to you on this story as things progress. If we have zero tolerance, let’s have zero tolerance. The alleged offender had family fired from the Hired Truck Scandal from the Water Department, time to let the grudge go dude! The victim was kicked off his new truck and thrown into the oldest junk truck in the fleet. It is called retaliation. ]]> Continue reading “Chicago Department of Water Managment Employee assaulted June 5, 2011”
Former Alderman Hansen's son Paul Hansen gets chilly response
On June 8, 2011, Paul Hansen finally got to address to City of Chicago Department of Water Management employees in the North District. Paul Hansen got a chilly response despite the very hot weather. Some employees in this picture were wearing shorts knowing the day would be close to 100 degrees. Paul Hansen told the workers he wanted them not to wear short pants again. Paul does not wear shorts anymore because he works in a very cold and chilly air-conditioned office. At $107,000.00 dollars, smackers, greenbacks, I would wear long pants also. Paul was in the newspapers for an alleged DUI he got when hunting in Geneva. Most Chicago City workers get fired when this happens to them. Somehow the Office of the Inspector General allowed his promotion to go through despite other employees claiming the promotion was rigged. Paul job requires a driver’s license and when suspended allegations of mileage reimbursement funny business continued to be made. Paul Hansen revealed new work rules that included parking in the residential area around former Alderman Pat Laver crib. The 45Th Ward’s new Alderman best take a look at this policy. Also, workers were reminded to go into the yard to swipe in and out. No more shortchanging the taxpayers anymore. The Office of the Inspector General got wind of edit sheets used on overtime jobs recently. The North District yard was just cited for violations with the Illinois Department of Labor. Several workers agreed to petition the neighbors to call Rahm Emanuel to stop this practice. So far the Office of the Inspector General has done nothing to stop the flash mob workers at the District, racing out to taxpayer’s homes, underbidding and hustling side business. This scam has gone on with leak desk workers giving inside leak complaints to certain investigators, kicking back cash to the bosses. It is time to keep the corruption, bribes, scams, payoffs in full swing, just wear long pants when you do it. It looks more legit. Patrick McDonough
Chuck Goudie of ABC 7 News outs Department of Water Management Caulkers
Enjoy this story in a story http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/iteam&id=8178957 Plumbers Local 130 allows unlicensed Plumbing in Chicago again. Chuck Goudie caught this in news special he just released about Rahm Emanuel’s alleged budget cutting and Chicago employees. Caulkers make at least $91,500.00 with no special training except ringing on doors to elect Rahm Emanuel. In fact, Plumber’s Local 130 James Sullivan idly sits by while these workers get the supervisory promotions. Real Licensed Plumbers are supervised by laborers with no Plumbing Licenses. Makes you want to drink bottled water Chicago! Paul Hansen, the son of former Alderman Hansen, got a chilly reception when he was promoted to lead all the North side City Plumbers despite never obtaining a Plumber’s License. The Office of the Inspector General is busy chasing stories already printed by the Sun-Times to be pro-active in the Chicago drinking water crisis. When several licensed plumbers were asked about the promotion of Paul Hansen to order plumbers around, they said, “James Sullivan of the Plumbers Union needs to be put to pasture, in the old days they would rig the plumber’s test, now they don’t give a fuc#”.

Rahm Emanuel rewards CLOUT unions with more jobs. Chicago payroll list.
Rahm Emanuel released a list of all the current employees on the public dole. I guess Rahm wants to make an impression he is trying to change things. Several names are missing. I noticed some names on workman’s compensation not listed. See list
http://data.cityofchicago.org/Government/Current-Employee-Names-Salaries-and-Position-Title/r3km-swf6? Rahm tells us he is for change but he knows he must play ball. Rahm is quietly putting another couple of million dollars of payroll and political payback on the backs of taxpayers at the Department of Water Management. Rahm forgot to list some former Alderman’s kid’s raises and all the new mystery employees Daley packed on last year. Rahm is keeping these big rollers despite claiming cutbacks. For starters, union office workers were tossed out of water department satellite offices and the workers were replaced by Laborer 1092 ditchdiggers to handle office chores. I do not think the Chicago Taxpayers want to pay someone $35.10 an hour for data entry. I do not think politically connected laborers should enjoy air-conditioned offices to answer phones. More stunning is the attempted hire of an additional 10 Plumber’s Local 130 members at $44.00 per hour. Plumbers are at an easy $100,000.00 per year. A raise is due very soon. Rahm knew when he got in bed with Plumber’s Local he would need to step to the plate and pony up jobs. A large percentage of the dues Plumbers pay is filtered back to politicians. Many of these Plumbers sit in an air-conditioned office all day and do relatively few chores. One example is former Alderman’s son Paul Hansen, making a whopping $107,000.00 thousand answering phone calls and data entry. Paul Hansen was just promoted despite formal complaints to the Office of the Inspector General and the Shakman Monitor. The position of Superintendent was not filled for many years with great savings and success. It looks like the Office of the Inspector General is just another tool of the Mayor’s office. The Commissioners on a routine basis shut down investigations, rendering the OIG a waste of taxpayers’ money. The Laborers Union was rewarded for support to Rahm Emanuel by the addition of at least another 10 construction laborers paid to inspect the same holes in the street day after day. In fact, construction laborers drive air-conditioned pick-up trucks doing very little wasting precious gas. It is all an act, the public think work is being done. These workers were hired to repair and install sewers, not drive around and look at them. The only major improvement was the General Superintendent that enforced work rules. Workers were busted for sleeping on the job because the Office of the Inspector General was a no show. This was again covered up and the taxpayers got screwed. I suggest the millions of wasted money are invested in new investigators at the Office of the Inspector General. But we must immediately stop commissioners overstepping OIG rulings and tell the OIG not to recommend every violation a termination. Patrick McDonough.
