We thought this article interesting considering its hypocrisy. In his own bazaar way, Trump is abiding by the Constitution in not involving the Federal government in local government manipulation while Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is admitting his incompetency in financial matters by not supplying his officers with the tools to do the job.

Councilmen Randy Wallace and Danny Ellis will hopefully obtain what they want. There is no guarantee of the Society’s follow through on their action requests if there is no process to enforce.
