Mayor Rahm Emanuel hasn’t delivered promised cuts in his office - actually he lied his ass off and grew his mayoral staff

On the day after he took office, Mayor Rahm Emanuel issued an edict: Every department head at City Hall had to cut senior management payroll costs by 10 percent.

But that hasn’t happened inside Emanuel’s own office, city payroll records show.

Instead, the number of mayoral staffers — and the total wages they’re paid — have increased since Emanuel replaced Mayor Richard M. Daley a year ago, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis finds.

As of April 11, the payroll for the mayor’s office included Emanuel and 85 aides — each of them a political appointee, who can be fired at will, making them part of senior management.

Their total yearly salaries: nearly $7.6 million, for an average of more than $88,000

In February 2010, a few months before Daley announced he wouldn’t seek another term, the mayor’s office had 76 staffers whose salaries totaled about $6.9 million — and that figure reflects their salaries before they were ordered by the Daley administration to take unpaid days off that translated into a 9.2 percent pay cut.

Aides to Emanuel note that 10 new mayoral staffers — who make up what’s called the “Innovation Delivery Team” — are paid through a grant from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s private foundation.

Still, even if those 10 aren’t counted, Emanuel so far would fall far short of his 10 percent target for cuts.

Emanuel aides also note that, under Daley, 10 people who were “permanently detailed” to work in the mayor’s office were carried on the payrolls of other City Hall departments.

Fuck Rahm. He's a lying short dick, short finger fuck who is just like every other politician. He gives less than 2 fucks about the city, the residents, the employees, and the welfare of the budget. All I gotta say is that he was voted in, so screw this city because everyone said how evil he'd be BEFORE he was even elected, yet people still overwhelmingly voted him in and now they want to cry about it. It's a little late to cry about it when the majority voted him in knowing he was a slimey fuck. Last one out turn the lights out, this city is DONE!

He was voted in because he knew Obama, when you have a 1/3 low IQ voting block this can be expected.
Also a large group of white liberals and who we know have a mental disease. Its the same reason why DAley got reelcted over and over agian.
