Two in a row! Chicago Public Schools chief fired for corruption
Rahm Emanuel didn’t have to search
very far for the replacement Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett
when she was fired in 2015. After the wheels of justice turned all the
way, she sobbed in court last April upon being sentenced
to four-a-half years in prison “for scheming to collect hundreds of
thousands of dollars in kickbacks in return for steering lucrative contracts.”

Rahm’s choice for the job was his old
friend and longtime aide, Forrest Claypool. After all, “it’s the Chicago way” to
keep political appointments that hand out lucrative contracts among friends.
But then again, it’s also The Chicago
Way to see corrupt officials forced out of their jobs --sometimes sequentially.
And that is what just happened, as Mr. Claypool put on his own public display
of sorrow with sad faces all around:
…with Claypool resigning his
$250,000-a-year job, acknowledging “stupid mistakes” that unsparingly were laid
bare by an ethics investigation of his good friend, top CPS lawyer Ron Marmer.
Who knew that is was against the
rules to steer contracts to companies in which you have a financial stake? Apparently
not the CEO of the Chicago Public Schools?
Under the school system’s ethics
code, officials can’t supervise the work of any CPS contractor with whom they
have a “business relationship.” And Marmer was getting a $1 million severance
package from Jenner & Block, in five $200,000 yearly installments through
He hired his former law firm for
major litigation, even as he was receiving money from them.
My prediction is that Chicago will
run out of money before it runs out of corrupt politicians. I’d say that’s a
Ed. "The Chicago Way" indeed. Imagine the countless hundreds of millions Democrat cronies have stolen from Chicago taxpayers over the past several decades of thug rule. The pair above simply made the mistake of getting caught.
