Special thanks to Attorney Larry Karchman for obtaining a settlement on behalf of City of Chicago Laborer Louis R. Ocasio’s family. You can google Mr. Ocasio’s story on chicagoclout.com. Chicago routinely attempts to return crippled workers just prior to settlements of their comp cases. In many cases, the workers just show up for work scared of their impending benefits being stopped. Many W/C lawyers are not informed by their clients. The City promised reform but Lori Lightfoot is now getting Alderman Burke’s slice of the pie.
Also, many W/C lawyers like the system because they make a killing when they settle the claim and get their share of unpaid medical. Many workers comp lawyers are not going to do anything until settlement day. They do not file 19B at IWCC because it pisses off corrupt arbitrators.
We at ChicagoClout have provided blankets, rent payments, water, food and other necessities for families that suffer after injuries working for Chicago. Alderman Burke will have many injured city workers at his court case to protest his scams at the Committee on Finance.
Special thanks to Larry Karchmar of Karchmar & Stone 111 West Washington Suite 1030 Chicago, Illinois 60602 RIP Louis. RIP.
For over twenty years, we at Chicago Clout have exposed the fraud in Chicago. The fixers and contractors know the game well. You can be on top of the world making piles of money and Chicago will pull the rug out from under you. Chicago’s contract process is rigged, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot is responsible. How many contractors have wasted millions on preparing a bid, obtaining phony minority subcontract bids, obtaining material costs?
Time is money. It takes an enormous amount of time and effort to organize a bid, and for what? In the old days, Chicago would have all contractors in a room, in person, and the bid was rigged. All the inside players knew the game, and played by the rules. Contactors knew one of the next bids would be theirs. When you reviewed the bids of old, prices and bids were so far off, you knew it was fixed. When the bid was awarded, the real money would be made on signoffs and extras. The extras, non-bided, were shared with Alderman, democrat-controlled candidates, and the Mayor’s Special fund. The winners were always the Chicago Union thugs, their members would float from winning contractor to winning contractor. The Chicago Unions made darn sure the democrat party was well funded and lacky officeholders would be reelected. Did you know Jesse White’s mental capacity was lacking for over ten years? He seemed so bad, I refused to release the video I made of him at the Thompson Center. I met Jesse with a black judge that was a friend of mine. Now you know.
Mayor Lightfoot is scamming the bidding process and awarding bids that will bankrupt Chicago. The bid-rigging is so out of control, Chicago city workers do not want to be left holding the bag. Did you know if you are awarding work and fraud is involved, you could be fired? Chicago is overpaying on many items because the bidder is gay, black, or whatever the flavor of the day is. Instead of classes and training, insiders are making profits at a record pace. White contractors are overpaying phony minority firms, sometimes over 30% premium, to get the deal. It is a scam.
This is a picture of Joel Kennedy Constructing Corporation with multiple locations. JK is on the outs with Plumbers’ Local 130 and hence, Lightfoot and the Office of the Inspector General, are running Joel out of town. I am going to release my decades of research to Joel Kennedy so they can fight the City of Chicago. I am going to bet; Chicago will be on the hook for millions. Joel Kennedy is being singled out because Local 130 is giving preferential treatment to a company they set up with a phony minority at the helm. Joel Kennedy is getting the squeeze. Ching Chong, payback, a mutha, my brotha.
Joel Kennedy is located at 2830 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. The problem is when your company is not contributing enough to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, something is going to get you removed from the Chicago money machine. If you are not playing ball with Plumbers’ Local 130, a phone call will be made to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and you will be replaced with a company that employs former Department of Water Management and Local 130 officers. Maybe Mr. Hosa wants to talk about this.
Companies doing business with Mayor Lori Lightfoot have to remember to keep that honey pot shared with the right pockets. Companies should have a right to employ who they want, have offices where they want, give campaign contributions to whom they wish. I am sad because I have many powerful stories I will wait to publish. Time to stop the fake minority programs. The private industry mostly hires good workers, retains good workers, and profits from good workers. The taxpayers are getting scammed by phony companies set up to profit insiders. If you have been shorted by the City of Chicago on a contract honest bid, please contact Chicago Clout. You got some money on the way. See you in court, again.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot failed to inspect restaurants in Chicago. Many Chicago restaurants are filthy. Mayor Lori Lightfoot was asked why she is not inspecting these dirty places that serve food to an unsuspecting public. “I got bigger fish on my plate”, said Leroy.
Chicago is best known for all the rats, in politics and in the alleys. Many have faithfully been in this food service jobs for over ten years. Now that Chicago has more diversity in downtown restaurants, many of the customers from the south side of Chicago, are eating and then starting a scene. It is an epidemic of bad behavior to get out of paying the bill.
One server stated, “these negroes feel they are owed something and look for any excuse to not pay the bill. Many Southsiders have never eaten anything beside barbecue and canned food. When they step into a Chicago Michelin restaurant, they feel ripped off.
One lady and her homeboy demanded a plate full of food, they said the plate had servings fit for a starving rabbit. A fight broke out and the gangsters were throwing food and plates at high class elite whites. When a rat scurred across the floor, the tables were overturned. If you are not from Chicago, I suggest you eat in the Northern Suburbs. After a meal downtown, you have a great chance of being accosted by the homeless and criminals. You have a great chance of getting robbed and your wife raped.
If you look in the Chicago downtown alleys, homeless are doing drugs, taking down their pants, and expelling fecal matter. Careful you do not step on all the drug needles.
Chicago restaurants are so broke, if you look at them in the daylight, you will be sick looking at the filth, the dirty and greasy tables, seats, and rugs. Lori Lightfoot made this mess and should give workers full pay since the pandemic started. Lori should also reimburse every restaurant all lost income for the last year and one half. If she could only find a way to get a cut of that money.
Many people in Chicago are starving from the Covid-19 problems. Mayor Lori Lightfoot shut down many businesses that will never reopen. The City of Chicago workers are scraping by because Lori Lightfoot stole their workers’ compensation benefits. Mayor Lightfoot endangered city workers with their exposure to Covid-19.
We are demanding the immediate termination of Andrea Cheng, the Acting Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Water Management. It does not take a PHD to notice these workers are sleeping in their cars midday. It does not take a PHD to notice workers are watching T.V. on their cell phones. It does not take a fucking PHD to notice the jobsite if fucking filthy and an embarrassment to any professional Union worker. The excavation is extremely dangerous and an immediate hazard to any citizen walking by and the sleeping workers.
Not long ago, Konrad Tucharski, a bricklayer for the Department of Water Management died from the same situation we see here. This is a repeat violation. Many reports to Victor Brume at the Illinois Department of Labor have been dismissed. If you look at this site, it is an absolute disgrace to anyone calling themselves a Union Local 130 Plumber. Where is Local 130 Business agents? Slopping and eating all day, I am sure.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot promised reform and got in bed with union money. This crew is taking advantage because the foreman is on another site. One jobsite one foreman must return to Chicago Water Department crews.
This crew thought they were close enough to a suburb to get away with safety rules and regulations. The Chicago Office of the Inspector General must shut down all crews until they work safely. The Chicago O.I.G. needs to demand the Committee on Finance stop fucking workers out of their workers’ compensation benefits when they allow this crime scene to continue. I am pissed; I have provided food, money, and housing to people denied workers’ compensation benefits. Heads must roll. I am still waiting for a return call I made yesterday to the Department of Water Management. Illinois must stop its one-party system because there are no checks and balances. Stop this shit now.
A midget and duck-footed balding negro was paraded in handcuffs in front of the Chicago Media by racist Chicago Police brass for a media event to humiliate blacks again. The negro wearing farmer’s pants rolled up at the bottom looked like an absolute fool. According to the Chicago Police, the sex of this midget was still undetermined. The midget was talking with a gravel voice that the CPD said, “was put on”. The midget was also attempting to start a new style wearing the farmer’s pants like a Chicago Union Pipefitter. The CPD said, “the fashion icon for the butch lesbian community was demanding her freedom and refused to talk to white cops”. “It is all a cover-up, first the media and now this”, said the ugly midget.
Maybe, someday the Chicago Media will wake up and find out, in their wokeness, they created a monster. Mayor Lori Lightfoot is an absolute idiot and an insult to people that always want to do the right thing. Chicago is an absolute shithole and getting worse. Maybe it is time to vote in people based on their merits. Lori is a hot mess.
The City of Chicago Department of Water Management has been getting off proper inspections of excavations. Calls to Farty Quinn, John Poop, and Lazy Megan Vidis have shown their reluctance to face the music. A laborer at the sewer division was taking pictures of inspectors looking at the lack of trench excavation safety.
Just prior to sewer crew, a DOWM Leak crew was seen safely installing shoring for the eight- and one-half inch deep ditch. The crew was installing a new valve to replace the old leaking valve. The City of Chicago under Lori Lightfoot still uses ancient bricklayers due to all the contributions to her campaign. Most if not all suburbs use precast concrete basins to save money and to work safer.
One of the laborers took pictures and sent them to high ranking DOWM commissioners to observe. I am glad the DOWM insists lazy do-nothing laborers taking pictures, because they sure as hell are not working. As you might expect, we have full access to needed information. We have made several calls to Clout heavy, Farty Quinn, John “Poop” Pope and Megan “isn’t doing shit lately” Vidis. Get your head out of Axelrod’s lap and answer calls you ho ho.
Many safety inspections have been done with and without crews aware. Please be warned, install shoring or get caught injured or dead. The Department of Water Management and the City of Chicago spend millions on every way to avoid working safe. They also spend millions on lawyers to avoid making workers compensation benefits. All letters go directly to Mayor Lightfoot. On May, 6, 2021 we were scheduled to release some incredibly damming video, but was put off by the State.
Do not get caught working in an illegal excavation anymore. You might regret it.
On this site a man was withing 6 inches of the opening unloading items from his SUV. No one from this crew did anything to keep him safe.
It looks like Chicago pays this crews bosses Julie Hernandez-Tomlin $159,036.00 Matthew Quinn $132,972.00, and John “poop” Pope $122,772.00 to convince IDOL Victor Brume to avoid proper inspections (allegedly). What happened to the days of IDOL George Hollich and John Bastert? Please ask John “poop” Pope to stop making poo poo all the time because it looks like he is sick and losing too much weight. Work honest like that handsome guy in the picture.
May 6th, and 7th, 2021. The Chicago 19th Ward was hit again with another shutdown of the Roseland pumping station. This has gone on several times. The 19 Ward was under a boil order which again shows the failures of Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago. The Chicago Department of Water Management has been warned by Chicago Clout about the lack of proper maintenance at Chicago pumping stations. The Eugene Sawyer water purification plant had a massive surge just prior to the pump failures. No excuse Mayor Lightfoot. Will this crush the private water deal made with Joliet? We will find out.
The 19th Ward had an emergency response from the Andersonville neighborhood. Two pallets of water from Costco were delivered to senior citizens centers from Patrick McDonough a City of Chicago Plumber and State Certified Plumbing Inspector, currently on unpaid disability. Also, Justin McDonough, son of Gregory McDonough (deceased) and former DOWM Plumber Central District swung into action, delivering yummy Costco Kirkland water so 19th Ward Seniors can reach Alderman Matthew O’Shea if they need potable water. It was a generous gift from Justin who lives on his disability payments. Justin has Cerebral Palsy, but that did not stop him from helping. Also special thanks to retired Plumbing Inspector Michael McGann for making this large and generous offer. Michael McGann purchased a state of art trailer to make emergency response possible.
Patrick McDonough is now part of the Plumbers with no Borders organization and their first Plumbing Inspector. “I am hoping to reorganize the Department of Water Management to have a rapid response team to provide water when pumping stations go offline, said Mr. McDonough. special thanks to the 19 Ward Office Staff (Kelly) that had to unload the water due to the disabilities. If you would like to join our rapid response team, please contact us.
The Mayor’s Office hung up the phone, Megin Vitas, spokeperson for Department of Water Managment will not answer, and Department of Water Command Center in Panic. Explosion put Joliet billion dollar deal down for the count…..Just like we said.
Illinois Plumbing Insptector Patrick McDonough and Water Invesstigator Frank Coconate on scene now. Heads will roll.
The City of Chicago is under strain due to the incompetence of Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
Mayor Lori stirred the racial pot with her broomstick. Day after day, Lori works the media, turning negroes against honkeys. Hispanics are coming to Chicago from Mexico due to lazy negroes that refuse to work. Lori needs hard working Mexicans to pay her high taxes.
Just recently, Ms. Cheng was promoted. She is the tempory commissioner. If you look at the past in Department of Water Management history, the acting position almost always leaves you homeless. In fact, whistleblowers have ruined more careers than crazy Lori.
So far, Ms. Cheng is part of the Joliet one-billion-dollar deal that is riddled with fraud and corruption. Not even Joe Ferguson can figure out he is being used by Lori.
Many City of Chicago Department of Water Management employees were part of an optical illusion to again fake the public. Lori was untrusting of her negro voters to behave after the George Floyd court room drama. Lori worked with Chicago Laborers and Teamsters to provide safety and security in case or riots. Lori was going to look out all the negroes from downtown Chicago. Lori ordered Ms. Cheng to place multiple pick trucks, licensed in Ohio, to act a barrier. Lori figured out it would be a good idea to have non-police in place because she is a weak woman that can not stand up to these creeps.
Since this was a safety matter, Lori forgot to send Ralph Chiczewski to monitor the workers that have no police training. Ralph did nothing but sit at home with his DOWM car in Edison Park and allegedly figure out what employee was exposing his penis to the public. Fortunately for lazy multi-pension deadbeat Ralph, armed persons were monitoring the Laborers and Teamsters sleeping on the job. The Inspectors were at 18th street staging, East McFetridge Drive at the Field Museum, Oak Street and Lake Shore Drive, (my neighbors at Drake Apartments were pissed) and the heavy sleepers at Belmont. Missing were the North avenue sleepers and the southside boys. If you were on this detail, please have your union rep to contact us for your pictures. If you do not want them, I will send over to the appropriate authorities.
Please note, when you are at work making time and one half and double time, put down the phone and keep your eyes open. These jobs would have been fine for crippled workers not paid their workers comp benefits. Funny how Cheng got her job by allegedly backstabbing Conner, but he was a damn idiot anyway.
Department of Water Management, stop stealing out in the open. People are at home with no food and no job. You spit in their face.
