One citizen's take on the Dick that makes Chicago tick.


Thursday, June 11, 2009


Adding to his long legacy of things that he knows nothing about, Mayor Daley distanced himself from the city deal involving his nephew Robert Vanecko.

Mayor Daley: I urged nephew Vanecko to get out of pension deal

“While many of you have speculated that I knew of Bob’s business relationship, I did not,” he told reporters. “I found out about it the same way most people did — in the news when the story broke. When I did find out, I made it very clear that it was not a good decision and that he should end the business relationship immediately.

“But, as an adult, Bob made a difficult decision — a different decision — which leads to a very painful string of news stories that have indeed caused tension in my family. I will not get into the inner workings of my family or your family, except to say that we’re not different than anyone else. Sometimes we agree, and sometimes we disagree.”

“Perception is everything,” Daley went on to say.

No one is bothering to ask why our fine mayor has no knowledge of how $70 million in city workers' pension are being invested.

Over at the Tribune, John Kass put it this way: "Daley seemed rational, but absolutely unbelievable in the Vanecko story."

I'm gonna have to go ahead and agree with Kass on this one. Mayor Daley says he doesn't know anything about this $70 million deal. I don't believe him.
