William J. Kelly, a Chicago activist, media personality and TV producer, wrote an opinion piece in the American Thinker stating the case for a possible defeat of Chicago Mayor, Rahm Emanuel.

Let me be the first to decimate this ridiculous myth: Rahm Emanuel can be beaten in 2015.

Even Chicagoans are fed-up with arrogant, aloof Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel. After four years, Emanuel’s approval rating has plummeted to 35% and most voters believe he is “out of touch.” They don’t call him “Mayor 1%” for nothing.

He provides a list of Emanuel’s failures.

From Rahm’s tax on 911 emergency calls and the looming city pension crisis to the closure of 50 Chicago public schools, his flip-flop on hiring 1,000 cops, and the mounting body count in gang-controlled areas of the city, Emanuel has exhibited incompetence, not leadership.

He also faults the media for trying to prop Emanuel up.

Don’t let director Robert Redford and CNN’s “scripted” documentary series, “Chicagoland” (engineered by Rahm’s Hollywood agent brother, Ari) tell you different.

Yet the mainstream media appear desperate to see Emanuel — President Obama’s former White House Chief of Staff — re-elected at any cost.

Instead of headlines blasting the Emanuel administration for rejiggering homicide statistics into “noncriminal deaths” (including a dead teenager found bound and gagged in an abandoned warehouse) in order to boast that Rahm has — voilà — solved Chicago’s murder crisis, newspapers trumpet the massive daily campaign donations he is raising instead. It is a convenient political distraction.

Kelly goes on to talk about Emanuel’s ability to raise funds by dodging campaign finance laws. He states that it was the caps put on candidates that made it impossible to compete on the money front. But the caps have been eliminated, other candidates, like Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, have the ability to raise the funds needed to win.

Note: Kelly was a former candidate for Mayor.

    Be serious. This is Chicago, after all. The final votes have already been tallied. The only thing left to do is put a name on the loser’s column. Much the same as it was before he left the White House to “consider” running. And has been for decades. It’s a Chicago political tradition.

    The Reason That “Chuy” Garcia Has Funds To Supposedly “Beat” RAHM Is Not Because GARCIA Is Really An Independent Populist Of The People Of Chicago Getting Grass-Roots Support; But, BECAUSE “CHUY” GARCIA HAS HIS MONEY-MAN, MARTY CASTRO (Son Of Former 1970s 7th-Ward Committeeman & 10th Wards “Fast” Eddie Vrdolyak Fraternal ‘Yes-Man’ RAY CASTRO), RAKING IN MILLION$ FROM FELLOW LAW-PARTNER & DEMOCRAT ILLINOIS SENATOR ******DICK DURBIN****** ! ! !
