“The One-Man Political Machine” by Scott Turow (TIMES MAGAZINE, 2/20/11)


Rahm Emanuel raised $10.5 million in less than two months for his mayoral run in Chicago. “He collected more than 70 contributions of $50,000 or more” for his war chest.

  I know plenty of people herer in Los Angeles who are politically engaged, none of whom could ante up $50,000.

Throw should have titled this puff job “Another purchase of a Big City Election.” With all that money, how hard does Emanuel have to fight?

Well, at least Obama is rid of this slimy hustler who said “that he would consider raising the retirement age of city pensions.”

Warning to the voters of Chicago: after this “warmhearted Machiavellian” (David Brooks, TIMES 10/5/10) take office, keep an eye on the Milk Fund!
