Anthony Duffy, 47, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about Mayor Daley's son, Patrick Daley being involved in a city sewer investment scheme


The one-time business partner of former Mayor Richard Daley’s son who was ensnared in a federal minority contract investigation has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his failure to disclose two key investors in a sewer company that got city work.

The two undisclosed investors previously have been identified by the Tribune as the former mayor’s son, Patrick Daley, and the mayor’s nephew, Robert G. Vanecko.

Anthony Duffy, 47, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to agents when he was queried about his failure to disclose information about two investors on economic disclosure statements he was required to file with the city on behalf of his company, Municipal Sewer Services.

The former Chicago Mayor, Richard Daley's relationship with his son Patrick Daley has been tense over the years after Richard learned of Patrick's "special friendship" with the former CPS Chief Ronnie Huberman.

I hope that US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has the intestinal fortitude and courage to do what is right here. Please do not bow to political pressure and let those responsible for destroying Chicago off.

WOW, checkout Sneeds Column:


Yipes!

Police Supt. Garry McCarthy’s plans for enlisting police security for the G-8/NATO summits this spring is so hush-hush, Sneed hears it’s got statewide security agencies in a swivet.

“It’s almost March and the two summits are in May,” said a top security source. “What’s up?”

“There is no way Illinois agencies outside Cook County have the manpower to help Chicago without the numbers the New York Police Department could provide,” said another source.

McCarthy, who has yet to comment on whether he requested help from New York, “has status with them and they have a force of 30,000, twice the size of Chicago’s police force,” said another security source.

But some plans are under way:

◆Sneed has learned the Chicago Police Department has requested the help of 350 cops from police departments across the state, according to a recent email dispatched by the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System.

◆Assistance from Illinois State Police also has been requested, but Sneed hears only about 250 police officers could be spared.

So how many Chicago cops are needed?

◆It took 4,000 cops to handle the G-8 a few years back in Pittsburgh, which had a police force of less than 1,000 officers.

◆It took at least 2,000-plus cops from outside the Chicago area to help control crowds on election night 2008, when President-elect Barack Obama addressed an excited crowd at Grant Park.

◆Response: “We are assessing our needs as we plan, and that includes the use of in-state and out-of-state sworn personnel,” police spokesman Melissa Stratton said Saturday. “We are not limiting candidates to one state or agency. We don’t have the final footprint for the summits so we won’t be able to finalize the number of sworn personnel we will be utilizing from other agencies until closer to the event.”

◆Meanwhile: Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who is this/close to President Barack Obama, was in Washington midweek to meet with Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano to discuss Chicago’s upcoming double summit and federal help.


What a total clusterfuck!

Daley, you are still a powerful local force, but are fast becoming more of an albatross around rahms and obamas neck. Do you feel your heart racing, palms getting wet, chest thumping, sweating. Yeah that's right grab that chest, as your bowels release.

the more I read learn and read about the Daley family, the more I believe they are scumbags. And that Anita Alvarez covering up the mess with the Koschman kid...they ought to throw her ass out of office. Every one knows Vanecko is guilty of the crime. Boy those Vanecko boys are pieces of shit. Consider the source - their mother is Richie's sister!
