Police union boss on payroll of big Rahm Emanuel campaign donor

Apr 15, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chicago Sun-Times

The connection between Emanuel donor Howard Labkon and FOP Lodge No. 7 President Michael K. Shields is spelled out in a court case in which Shields got an order of protection last year against an FOP lawyer he said threatened his family after the union stopped giving him business.

and you wonder why Chicago is in such a fiscal mess??

with democrats & unions working hand in hand to stay in power..

guess Chicago voters never learned that" absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Ahhh but there is a day of reckoning coming soon.
I can't wait.

the city miss managers have the city unable to pay its current bills and the city is racking up a staggering long term debt load they will not have the resources to pay ever!

because the city mis managers have driven off business by over taxing over regulating, then allowing & encouraging aggressive union bully tactics & driven off middle income tax payers who might have had the resources to bail them out.

can't wait till a bankruptcy court judge sets aside all those outrageous union retirement payouts cause there ain't no money honey to pay them.

the miss managers of the city did fail to fund those greedy union retirement packages choosing instead to waste the money on other stuffs.

the bottom line is Chicago is heading for bankruptcy court

guess that's what happens when you have the same party in power too long. a system of checks & balances are what's needed for democracy to work as designed.

Chicago been suffering from a dictatorship of democrats and unions.

Really breaking news
It would be easier to count the people not on Dead
Fish Rahm's dole.

Just a way of life in that cesspool of a fiscal
mess called Illinois.

You voted for it - live with it clownbots!
