Michael Scotts name came up several times during the Obama-lympics 2016 debacle. He was one of many Chicago cronies who stood to gain from the bid.
The local papers in Chicago sniffed out his conflicts of interest as an Olympics committee member who was also involved in trying to develop a for-profit real estate project that would sit within feet of the cycling venue if Chicago won the games.
Scott also served as the Chicago School Board president and used his position to urge principals to push the failed Olympics bid.
Scott was in hot water with the feds over an education corruption scandal and had been issued a subpoena:
federal prosecutors issued a subpoena in late July to Chicago Public School Board President Michael Scott as part of an investigation to determine whether principals at the citys nine highly-competitive high schools improperly selected students based on clout rather than academic achievement. Prosecutors are seeking all correspondence related to applicants who applied and were accepted, plus all related material including test scores and recommendations.
City school officials would not comment, nor would Justice Department officials in Chicago.

Our leadership is a crime syndicate who doesn’t give a ^(*&*(()* whether we live or die.
Another outbreak of arkancide!
My guess is that the "clout" amounted to cash bribes. Evidence of his involvement induced him to talk about unrelated things that others prefer to keep quiet.
Pay attention people!
This is just a test to determine public efficacy for Universal Health Care’s *late term abortion* and *assisted suicide* mandates.
Democrats believe the bill will realize huge savings in current court costs for troublesome cronyism and legal entanglements.
At least the police aren’t buying the coroner’s report at this time.
“He had it coming.”
Tell me more, please . . .
