Rahm Emanuel BEFORE NATO - Chicago to make over $128 MILLION DOLLARS in profits from NATO - After NATO: We are in the hole MILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel seeks reimbursement for $15 million dollars in police overtime during NATO - NATO Left city in the HOLE


Policing the NATO summit last month racked up about $15 million in overtime for Chicago Police officers, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration said Friday as it released documents seeking reimbursement for the costs from the federal government and the summit host committee.

The city sent letters dated June 29 to multiple government agencies asking for the release of funds earmarked for the city’s NATO costs. That includes $7.5 million designated by Congress when the NATO summit received National Special Security Event status, as well as another nearly $4 million in federal grant funds.

In the preparations for NATO, Emanuel had tasked his business development group, World Business Chicago, with leading the planning and fundraising efforts for the summit. The group raised about $33 million in private funds, pledging about $19 million of that to defraying any city costs not covered by the federal government. However, Friday’s requests from the host committee totaled just $1.9 million.

Emanuel’s spokeswoman, Sarah Hamilton, said that the current tally for police overtime costs associated with NATO was $14.6 million, but there could be some minimal further expenses straggling in over the next month.

“It's possible there could be some additional hours that were unaccounted for in the first round (not huge numbers), but this is the overwhelming majority,” Hamilton wrote in an email Friday.

Don't worry Chicago, this NATO crap won't cost the taxpayers a penny!

Hey Obama, it's time to pay the bill? (snooz)

Typical Democrats, spend the money without any money upfront!

Now Rahm will have to borrow the dough till Uncle Sam pays up?

Maybe the parking meter company will file a claim with Quinn and get theirs before Rahm gets a dime?

$510,000,000 went out the back door last year in TIF project theft. I know I must sound like a broken record but, WHAT THE FUCK? When are the unions gonna ask for some? You don't have to point and scream, maybe walk in with your hat in your hand and beg for some crumbs for us. That's over half a billion dollars you know. It's the pension contributions the city didn't make. Am I crazy?

Anonymous is correct. TIF funds = one giant slush fund for the benefit of the politicians in charge. Asking for overtime out of TIF funds ........why not?

And how many times are we going to fall for the complicit local news media saying, "NATO/event XYZ will pump XXX millions of dollars into the local economy!!!" when the reality is it doesn't. We couldn't come out and say that, of course, or we wouldn't get any access to the politicians.
