Inspector general wants McMahon business banned from City of Chicago work and contracts - Fake woman owned business got millions in contracts

A few months after Mayor Richard M. Daley took office in 1989, Nancy McMahon and her sister-in-law Kathleen McMahon — two stay-at-home moms — went into business. They started Windy City Electric Co., which would go on to win millions of dollars in work from the City of Chicago — including contracts set aside for women contractors.

Under its two current deals with City Hall, Windy City Electric has been paid more than $10 million over the past five years.

Now, Joseph Ferguson, the city of Chicago’s inspector general, is urging Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration to permanently ban Windy City, its owners and their husbands from doing any more work for the city. Ferguson says that, eight years ago, the sisters-in-law falsely claimed they were the operators of Windy City so they could be certified by the city as a woman-owned business enterprise. That made them eligible for city work set aside for women-owned businesses.

This is exactly why Chicago taxpayers should demand that the Inspector General be an independant elected official with the power of subpoena and arrest so these theives can be brought to justice along with the politicians who conspired with them to defraud the taxpayers.

More Thieving Irish DEMOCRAT-Connected Pay-to-Play Operators. Watch for this too, as all else in the Corruption-World of Crookago, Crook County, to be swept under the Carpet. Why do we even pay a States Attorney, Attorney General, or U.S. Attorney and Feds.??? Every once and awhile they pick off a grain of sand off the beach when the Heat is on, but basically they are collectively inept, corrupt too, or a combination of both. Even a stopped watch tells the correct time twice a day, which is better than the results THEY get. .

I love it. All of those Irish that sold their souls for the Dems and BHO. They should have done their homework, BHO and Michelle had conversations on how upset they were considering the Irish had all the power in Illinois. Payback is a bitch especially if you supported the goof in the first place.
