Chicago school board chief believed dead
CNN.com ^ | 11/16/09

The Chicago police would say only that authorities had found the body of an adult male about 3:15 a.m. in the area of 350 N. Orleans St., a road near a waterway in Chicago.

CNN affiliate WGN-TV, citing unnamed police sources, said Scott's family had reported him missing Sunday evening.

WLS-TV also reported that it was Scott's body that emergency crews recovered from the water. A report on the station's Web site did not cite a source but noted that Scott's wife, Diana Palomar, is the station's vice president of community affairs.

Scott had been appointed to the Chicago Board of Education three times, twice as president. He most recently was appointed in February. Previously, Scott was board president for five years, until July 2006.

Scott disclosed in early August that he had been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury investigating how students were chosen for admission to some of Chicago's most elite public schools.

He denied using his influence during two stints as board president to help any student into a selective-enrollment school.

Scott, who was a developer, also was criticized in August when it was revealed that he had quietly arranged to develop city-owned land near a park that would have been used in the 2016 Summer Games. The move would have positioned Scott to cash in, had Chicago been awarded the Olympics.

The 2016 Games were awarded to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Call me cynical, but this looks to me to be the 1st published instance of Bamacide. The Chicago Way. Next thing you know, we'll find strong ties between him and Valerie Jarrett.

In fact, since the Obama Administration strikes me as just an extension of the Clinton Administration, with Rahm Emmanual still running the show, this is really just an add on Arkancide... The machine is up and running 100%.

So, am I the only one who thinks the same shadow government machine that ran Clinton is also running Obama?

Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.

Inigo Montoya: What's that?

Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

“believed dead”? I would say floating in the river with a bullet in your head should be considered confirmed dead.

Said the cop to the reporter, "Now I can't say for sure if he is dead or not, but what I can tell you is, he is hurt real bad...

The question that needs to be asked is if the prison being considered for purchase by the federal gov’t in Illinois is owned by an Obama cronie!

Apparently Emanuel’s dead-fish mail greeting didn’t get his attention.

My mom told me she drove right by there, saw them towing his car and the tv vans.

My brothers both independently joked (or not) that Daley must have had him rubbed out.

If I wanted to off myself my plans sure wouldn’t involve that cold, gross river.
