Example of how OBAMA’s Boy, Rahm Emanuel, is Inept and Corrupt

Should it really cost this much to interview 39 candidates for the top cop job in Chicago?

In a search for a new Police Superintendent, the Chicago Police Board interviewed 39 candidates.  They spent roughly half a million dollars on the nationwide search, covering everything from air travel, hotels, restaurants, advertising and background checks.

They got their list whittled down to three candidates: Cedric Alexander, public safety director of DeKalb County, Georgia; Anne Kirkpatrick, retired police chief of Spokane, Washington; and the Chicago Police Department’s Deputy Supt. Eugene Williams.

The board handed their recommendations over to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and he chose… none of the above.

Instead, Emanuel handed the job to Chief of Patrol Eddie Johnson – a man who hadn’t even applied. 

The job pays $260,044 a year… so the Chicago Police Board just spent almost two years’ salary trying to fill the position… only to find out the mayor had someone else in mind.

The mayor called the former Gresham District commander uniquely qualified to rebuild community trust shattered by the police shooting of Laquan McDonald; reverse the alarming increase in homicides and shootings during the first quarter of 2016; and boost rock-bottom police morale that has caused police activity to plummet.
