the snookerer is saying Chicago got snookered! ALL the while, hoping her “people” are too stupid to know that

“little can be done given that the city already has spent nearly all of the $1.1 billion it got from leasing the meters.”

To which MadMax adds, “RED BITCH”

Actually, I agree with her. No matter what is on a person's tax return, it can be used as fodder by the demagogues. What's next after this: complete checking account transaction summaries?

Huh. Last time I tried that line it was telling my Mom why I wasn’t going to eat mashed potatoes. I don’t think it’s going to work now any better than it did then.

She is disgusting but she is less evil than Rahm. Are they the only choices?

The people that would vote for her wouldn’t understand her tax return or care about what was in it anyway.

The main difference is if a Democrat refuses to provide information or documents, the MSM assumes there is nothing there and it is a private matter. If a Republican refuses in the same way, the MSM begins to aggressively speculate as to what that person is trying to hide.

You can't make this stuff up.

When told by a reporter "You're being evasive.", she replied "I know you are, but what am I?".

(not really, but that's what her response made me think of)

Chicago would survive an Emmanuel mayoralty. There's always been corruption there. CMB would send it down the path as Detroit has followed.

Do you remeber when she ran for Senate? She was a tax scofflaw, a cheat.

She was a poor senator only one term.

For some reason I distinctly remember CMB saying to the effect that her first duty as a senator was to send big federal $ back to her people.

So yes, a mayor CMB will likely be as good for Chicago as Coleman Young or Kwame Kilpatrick were for Detroit. Civilization in reverse gear.

If it isn’t required by law..why should any politician release their tax return or any other piece of personal information?
Besides, it is hard to release returns that are unfiled.
Mostly Brawn probably hasn’t done one in years.

Personally I hope "Mostly Fraud" get's elected.......

It would be fitting....

A slap in the face of that cracker Rahm...and a slap in the face of the first Black POTUS...and a slap in the face to the half black current POTUS.

A Trifecta!!!

Chicago deserves her.........

We are so screwed in CHI.

She’s worse than Rahm. I was all ready to vote for worthless liberal Congressman Danny Davis if he was the alternative to Rahm. But Mosely-Fraud? This is like a sick joke, Rahm the “better” choice? M-Fraud is joke across the country but in Chicago she’s the now the consensus choice of Black leaders. How absurd.

The only hope of having someone slightly less bad is if worthless hack union liberal former School Board Chief Gery Chico or Daleyite hack City Clerk (and my former State Senator) Miguel del Valle makes the runoff. Good look with that. Chico is better known and will get more votes, I doubt he can top M-Fraud especially with Del Valle cutting into his Hispanic base.

And I doubt M-Fraud will get much more than the racial lines Black vote in a runoff with Rahm, he’d win easily.

Meeks was the Black candidate that had the best chance of winning (if he was the only one). By settling on M-Fraud, hell they could be throwing it. But I was so sure they fervently wanted a Black mayor.

Twinlketoes is gonna be Mayor and probably make us miss King Daley.

Easy of you to say. Some of us live here. Electing her is the first step towards becoming Detroit.

I hope she wins. Carol Mostly Fraud is incompetent, but Rahm Emanuel is genuinely evil.

“But Mosely-Fraud? “

Basically, she will be entertaining the rest of the country until she goes to jail. She should be watching Detroit. She doesn’t need the scrutiny
