Federal Court Testimony of the Chicago Democratic Machine Rigging Elections

You can download the testimony of former Water Department Deputy Commissioner Donald Tomczak,  who is currently serving his sentence in federal prison. This testimony shows how Chicago Democrats rigged the hiring and promotion of city employees in order to unduly influence elections. To read how Tomczak’s unlawful patronage workers campaigned to elect Rahm Emanuel to the U.S. Congress, see the last page, 2444. To read how Tomczak’s unlawful patronage workers campaigned for former U.S. Commerce Secretary William Daley’s candidate Al Gore when Bill Daley was Gore’s campaign chairman, see page 2443. The federal court testimony also implicates Senior White House Adviser David Aelrod because Axelrod was Rahm Emanuel’s campaign manager and Axelrod was also an adviser to Daley for multiple campaigns in which Axelrod and Daley used patronage workers to rig the elections in their favor.  Tomczk Testimony

Unethical Campaign Contributions from Aon Executives to Daley

IL State Board of Elections records show  Chicago Olympic Committee Chairman and ex-Aon Chief Patrick Ryan contributed $100,000.00 and Aon executive Michael O’Halleran donated $25,000.00 to Mayor Daley shortly before Aon received contracts worth $47 million from the City of Chicago. Aon was supposedly donating human services, office supplies, and office space free to the Chicago Olympic bid. However, the timing of Ryan and O’Halleran’s campaign contributions to Daley, Aon’s donations to the Chicago Olympic bid, and Aon receiving $47 million in City of Chicago contracts, makes it seem like the City of Chicago taxpayers reimbursed Aon for the donations Aon made to the Chicago Olympic bid.

Clout List

Many of the 5,700 names that appear on the Clout List received jobs, overtime pay, raises, etc. for campaigning for Mayor Daley’s favored candidates. The Shakman federal court decree explicitly prohibited using taxpayer money to reward city employees for campaign work. To learn more about the Shakman Decree,  and why the U.S. Judge Wayne R. Anderson assigned Noelle Brennan to monitor all of the Daley administration employment decisions, click the link below:ShakmanMonitor.comMayor Daley and former U.S. Commerce Secretary Bill Daley’s names appear as Clout List patronage sponsors. Note the names of local unions that appear as patronage sponsors. To download and view the Clout List, click Clout List

Daley and Ryan’s Letter to the IOC

Mayor Daley, Chicago Olympic Chairman Patrick Ryan, and President of the U.S. Olympic Lawerence Probst signed and sent this letter to the International Olympic Committee. The letter states that under Illinois law the City of Chicago can’t sign a financial guarantee of a Chicago Olympics (Item 2 C). If Mayor Daley believed the city couldn’t sign a financial guarantee contract for the IOC, why was one proposed and passed by the Chicago City council?

  1. The Daley letter is incredible.

    * Why wasn’t this letter shared with the Council?

    * Why wasn’t this letter shared with the public?

    * Given the letter’s assertion of government immunity, was asking the Council to vote for the assumption of liability a cynical charade?

    * If the mayor’s office says they re-reviewed the legal issues in the letter and found they now have no problem, why won’t they re-review the liability cap, and find no problem in keeping taxpayer protection in place as well?

    * Does the IOC mind that the mayor told them he can’t sign their contract? Or have they counted votes and decided he won’t win anyway?
