Chicago Clout is a strong advocate for City of Chicago victims of abuse by the Chicago Department of Water Management. Will Mayor Lori Lightfoot demand the resignation of Commissioner Conner after this lady and her son was arrested for no valid reason? As a disclosure, I agreed to assist this family have their day of justice. Where is the Inspector General?
• An OIG audit of the Department of Water Management’s (DWM) overtime monitoring established that DWM had developed policies and tools to manage overtime but did not utilize these resources consistently. OIG found that “call-out” processes across DWM were neither standardized nor transparent, creating a climate where employees might perceive the overtime system as unfair—potentially undermining morale and triggering grievances. DWM managers at all levels had limited awareness of the full range of the Department’s overtime processes, had not exercised robust oversight, and had not consistently maintained overtime records. OIG recommended that DWM update and distribute its overtime policies, use monitoring tools to inform operational decisions, continue efforts to develop internal reporting tools that provide a real-time view of overtime usage, and improve the consistency, transparency, and fairness of the overtime process. DWM agreed with the audit findings and committed to make better use of overtime monitoring tools.
The Federal Government has put aside billions for Coo Coo Lori
Wake up all of Chicago employees. The gravy train is hitting a broken bridge. It is no secret the City of Chicago kept many of its employees working at home. Many we know are not needed during Covid-19 restrictions. It is no different that a family that lost all the breadwinners and the parents are still racking up large credit card bills.
Worse yet, the City of Chicago has kept almost all subcontractors working as Rome burns. Chicago is in major debt that will exceed over one billion. Chicago is on target to completely place itself in a position impossible to get out of.
My sources told me Mayor Lori Lightfoot will continue to fight every FOIA and drag on each request to the maximum amount of time. We discovered fraud in the DWM FOIA system, and the Office of the Inspector General is doing nothing. The same Chicago Inspector General that refused to supply his army of retards and misfits to assist Chicago Police quell ongoing riots. Most Chicago Inspector Generals are at home looking at stupid T.V. shows. If I was Joe Ferguson, I would quit because he is nothing but a puppet and a clown that is just building up a second and third pension for him and his co-conspirators.
Many Chicago workers are going to wake up soon and get laid off for good, for a long time. The State of Illinois took a major Municipal Liquidity Facility Loan. It was not displayed in the Sun-times or Tribune and no questions were asked of Pritzker or Lori Lightfoot. Mayor Lori Lightfoot completely failed Chicago by keeping all of Rahm Emanuel’s Commissioners. Lori Lightfoot has no idea of what she is doing and completely failed at her duties. Should Lightfoot continue to crave the spotlight on national television while Chicago is already over a cliff?
You will never find the turds at CNN ask any financial questions of Coo Coo Lori. If I was Lori, I would lose some weight around the middle, shave my legs, put on a dress, put on some lipstick, wear a pushup bra, put on a wig to hide the bald spots, dye my hair, get her hair did, shave her armpits, put on high heels, gargle her bad breath, brush her nasty teeth, get her nails did, shut the fuck up, and kiss Donald J. Trumps ass to get out of the massive hole, Daley, Emanuel, and Lightfoot made for the good citizens of Chicago. The current pictures are being doctored to make Lori look good. She looks like an old turd.
I find it amazing many of the Unions are looking for a fight with the Union Contractors. Some of the fat cat union members have not sacrificed like all the citizens during Covid-19. Illinois is a junk-bond state. Taking loans separate from the Federal Reserve and traditional bonds puts Chicago and Illinois in the worst financial position destined for doom.
The family of a Texas woman who once portrayed Aunt Jemima has called on the breakfast brand to reconsider its decision to scrap the ubiquitous fixture from its products.
Vera Harris said the family takes pride in Quaker Oates scouting her second cousin Lillian Richard to become a brand representative in 1925, news station KLTV reported.
“She was considered a hero in [her hometown of] Hawkins, and we are proud of that. We do not want that history erased,” Harris said.
Harris said Richard worked for the company for 23 years, traveling around as Aunt Jemima to serve pancakes until she suffered a stroke.
“She made an honest living out of it for a number of years. She toured around Texas,” Harris said, noting there “wasn’t a lot of jobs, especially for black women back in that time.”
Harris said the family was upset by Quaker Oates’ announcement last week that it would rebrand Aunt Jemima products because the character’s origins are “based on a racial stereotype.”
“We want the world to know that our cousin Lillian was one of the Aunt Jemimas and she made an honest living. We would ask that you reconsider just wiping all that away,” Harris said.
“I wish we would take a breath and not just get rid of everything, because good or bad, it is our history. Removing that wipes away a part of me — a part of each of us.”
Today June 16, 2020, a homeless black woman is living on the street in front of Alderman Tunney’s restaurant in the Northside of Chicago. Alderman Tunney is number two in Chicago under Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Tunney makes a large wage as a Chicago Alderman with massive benefits. Alderman Tunney also makes a pile of money with his crappy restaurants in Chicago. I ate at Ann Sather and the food was shit. You think Mister Liberal Tunney would share his money with this lady and make sure she has a bed off a busy street. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Alderman Tunney sure talk a lot of shit, but actions speak louder than words. Next time you pass Broadway and Granville, throw this lady some money. Two jobs ain’t enough for these two-faced talkers.
Many City of Chicago children were listening in when racist Mayor Lori Lightfoot was acting like a Jive Turkey. The public face Lori likes to portray is that of reformer and a nice person. In private, Lori proved to be lacking in any civility. The Sun-Times called her “thin-skinned”.
Most of us know of people that get what they want and then find out they realize they are completely unqualified. The way these people react when they get in an embarrassing predicament is to act stupid and childish. Mayor Lori Lightfoot took the position of the slow and unwitting Aunty and called all the nut jobs to protest the murder of George Floyd. Lori who is aching for a promotion to a Federal post had all the right ingredients to get ahead. The Chicago Mayor’s job was perfect for her. Rahm Emanuel already screwed everything up. I told you then Chicago is a financial nightmare.
Just like the Daley family, Rahm is set and ready for billions in financial deals ready for his arrival. Chicago is a banker’s paradise. Chicago is so desperate to take any money anyone will loans them. The amount of points on the loans does not matter. Lori is going to go down with the unions that made her. During the COVID-19 emergency, Lori had most of Chicago employees working since they are source of petition signatures and money for the democratic party. These insiders control billions in dirty contracts and funnel the money to the next election. Pay to play.
When you hear the Chicago Media ask questions to Lori, they are nice and prepared. Lori answers in her phony gravel voice attempting to answer like a competent pantsuit.
Lori kept all the old guard and to the real powers that control Chicago. At least when Rahm Emanuel did a photo op he shaved his legs and oiled them up. I still laugh to this day when I see the Chicago cameramen chasing him for some B-Roll. There is a reason why Lori refused to wear a dress in public, thank god for disco pants.
When Fran Spielman hit a grand slam with her release of Mayor Lori Lightfoot swearing like a sailor in an audio recording, it made national news. Fox News has a heyday. According to my sources, the recording was also allegedly released by Alderman Edward Burke’s righthand man. Mayor Lori Lightfoot was so upset, her staff told me she was crying like a baby and then out of control with revenge.
Mayor Lightfoot needs to realize she burned many bridges when she shut down the FOIA’s she promised to reform. Lori Lightfoot cannot return from her riot that ruined her image. White Chicago never looked at her skin color when she promised the moon. Lori failed and is a small spiteful loser. The worst part is all of us wanted her to prove a black lesbian could lead and make haters look stupid.
Yes, Mayor Lori Lightfoot is a jive turkey. P.S. Lori caved in all of the union negotiations, she is again giving big wage increased to City workers. The unions, especially Plumbers Local 130 picked this prize turkey out of the lot. While many American starve and have no work, Lori is taking Federal bailout loans that will come back and haunt her.
Saturday May 30, the loop was taken over by domestic terrorists. Unconceivable damage to retail establishments, looting, and attacks against the police took place throughout the entire downtown business district and seat of government and the government officials elected by us failed in their core responsibility to protect people and property. The individuals that own this are Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Governor “toilet removal” Pritzker both of whom own this epic failure. A few days before the riots broke out the Mayor proudly and publicly proclaimed, “F- U –President of the United States.” Now for a person who likes to use the expression, as Lightfoot frequently does, that a person is using a dog whistle to elicit a response from supporters or a political base-what kind of message does it send to people, that the mayor of the city is telling the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the Country which trump is as President –to go f off. So not only was the statement unbecoming of a city employee –in which in many cases city employees have been terminated for making such statements, the message very likely served to ferment an angry and potentially violent revolt. Yes, the Mayor has first amendment rights but she most has missed the class on the golden rule and the sagacious advice that “Silence is Golden.”
As for the domestic attacks of terrorism, how can the leader of the city fail to collect intelligence and react appropriately to viable threats against the citizens? Do not think for a minute Lightfoot does not reputedly have access to detailed intelligence reports collected by local and federal law enforcement. This information should have led to decision making including shutting the loop down well in advance of the riots and looting. Former Richard M. Daley had already provided Lightfoot with the blueprints from prior lessons learned. Remember the Chicago Flood in the early 1990s? Within a few hours of realizing the loop had a potential major safety issue from flooding, than Mayor Daley raised the bridges and re-routed all traffic and implemented a counter traffic flow to dump the loop in an orderly and prompt manner-it was textbook perfect-not a single injury and the complete evacuation of the entire downtown business district in a matter of hours –all on a regular business day no less.. Following -9-11-01 billions of dollars were spent by government and private businesses to safeguard establishments. State of the art camera systems can cover a person walking through the entire loop and this is monitored. Additionally, Rich Daley frequently utilized heavy equipment from infrastructure Departments to create barriers in order to safeguard police and citizens when threats of attack or civil unrest were on the radar. Why were none of these methods deployed and only deployed until the loop was up for grabs? The reason is because Lightfoot took a chance with all of us in order to maintain her political messages. She was afraid to act and the police department under her control was hamstrung as a result. Not to mention her callous treatment of her new police Chief-accusing him a week earlier of an epic failure for the record violence throughout the city during the Memorial Day weekend. She appoints the Police Chief and all other exempt employees- she is the elected official that is accountable to the people that put her in office. She can try to “Johnny Lujack” the responsibility away from herself, but she damn well owns it. If she really wants to talk about epic failures, she should look at herself and her nice little haircut provided during a public health quarantine in the mirror. She has failed the citizens of Chicago epically. She has no concept about fundamental government operations and deployment of a Unified and Integrated strategy for a major public safety disaster. She should be ashamed of herself. Three years cannot come soon enough. Remember this too-although they have tried to infringe on your second amendment rights-go purchase yourself a private arsenal of weapons –the cavalry is not coming when you need it most to protect your loved ones. The government could not even safeguard the crown jewel of the heart of the business district think they will be able to protect you out in the neighborhoods?
