Rahm Emanuel: ‘Cheap trick’ to cite his ties to fire chief on disability - BUT NOT A CHEAP TRICK TO MAKE FOOLS OUT OF COPS-FFs WHO GET INJURED ON DUTY

Thou shall not make a fool of Rahm... but everybody else it's ok!
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday he isn’t embarrassed by the revelation that a former Chicago firefighter who starred in an Emanuel campaign commercial is collecting $91,113 a year in tax-free disability pay.

Emanuel said he was serving as White House chief of staff when Chicago Fire Department District Chief Patrick J. Kehoe went on disability leave.

The mayor dismissed as a “cheap trick” a Chicago Sun-Times story published Tuesday that noted that Kehoe was identified in Emanuel’s mayoral campaign commercials as a “retired Chicago firefighter.”

At the time the commercial began airing, Kehoe had been on disability leave for about four months after slipping on a driveway during a hazardous-materials call on July 17, 2009.

“I met Pat Kehoe in a fire station in 2001,” Emanuel said Tuesday. “In July of 2009, when he went in front of the pension board, I was the chief of staff to the president of the United States . . . I don’t know the case. I wasn’t here. I was in Washington, working for President Obama.

“We have a systemic issue on police and fire disability that needs to be addressed [and doesn’t] need to be played cheap tricks on. What happened to the disability is a serious issue, needs to be dealt [with] seriously and not made [a] frivolous issue….We have a systemic issue, not a one-off case.”

Smells like it was payoffs to City Doctors to approve some Disabilities. Pay-to-play, the Chicago Way! Want disability? Shakey case? DROP. Doc gets some, DemocRAT Party gets some, and Taxpayers get stuck with the bill for the long haul, as usual.

What do you expect of the Evil Racoon Eyes. He is a conniving fucking Jew who has no morals. This bastard will do anything to get his way.

Rahm has screwed the pooch. He's not Jewish as much as he is Gypsy.

Teacher's union is going to crush him on this expanded school day, Police are not his friend after these olanted smears graciously covered by the Chicago media.

Who cares if this hose puller is connected to the evil one. If the hose puller is legitimately unable to work then he deserves disability.

Patrick J Kehoe,like the REST in HIS family, HIS UNCLE Patrick W Kehoe Ret. Chief of Fire Services, Patty Boy's DADDY Jim 1st. OR 2nd Deputy under Quinn, Young Pat who was luckier than a SISSY IN BOYSTOWN, happened to land No.1 on the last Capt. exam. This whole FUCKING FAMILY IS ON THE TAKE!

Why doesn't the guy behind Rahm plunge the spear into the back of his head and save us.

This whole town sucks. Get what you can and get out. Same CFD family getting big jobs -- no news there. Alderwomen trying to put the fix in for a family member. And, it seems in the article smashing cops the reporters failed to report that the lawyer they put on the front page sued the sun times prior to the report. But no bias there I am sure.
