I heard that the rewrite to the Home Rule Charted was designed to give more ownership to the Porkster of the city and police force.
What do you hear?
Wow! Do you mean more ownership than he already has?
We know the Porkster has a death grip over the city. This is unbelievable that the Mikey lets him continue as chairman of the Recreation Board.
Now get this and how foolish can Mikey be to let Chairman Porkster hold the recreation board meeting at the Viking and the Chairman picked up the tab.
Let us summarize.
The indicted Porkster is Chairman of the Recreation Board and Mikey is ok with this.
The indicted Councilman Carr is a member of the Recreation Board and Mikey is ok with this.
The indicted Councilman Carr hosts the Recreation Board meeting at his Viking Lounge which was raided three times for gaming machines over the past two years. Mikey is ok with this.
Mikey should be smart enough to recognize this sends a wrong message to the good citizens of the City. Many suspect that Mikey used his influences to appoint the Porkster to the board and then the chairmanship. The Porkster is in a good position to establish a lot of "stops" from his chairmanship. Mikey accepted a contribution from the Porkster and then used his influence to advance the Porkster's hidden agenda. This is a violation of the State Ethics Act.
