The following article was posted today, Easter Sunday on NBC Chicago’s Website, containing so called “new information” about donors to Rahm Emanuel’s mayoral campaign. They have discovered shocking information that Donald Trump was a $50k donor. Sadly, this was already news a couple months ago. See here on Red Dog Report February 17th. Way to stay on top of it NBC!



Trump Gave Rahm $50K

New information is coming out about contributors to Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel’s campaign fund, including billionaire Donald Trump.

The Illinois Review, a coservative blog, reports that Trump gave Emanuel $50,000 in December 2010.  That’s especially interesting, since Trump is eyeing a run for the White House against President Barack Obama, Emanuel’s old boss.

This isn’t the first time Trump has donated to candidates in Illinois, but it is the largest contribution. State election records show Trump also gave $5,000 to George Ryan, the Republican candidate for governor in 1998, and then $5,000 more in 2001.  He also donated $2,000 to Rod Blagojevich in 2002.

Trump also gave $12,500 to the Cook County Democratic Party.

NBC Chicago was able to confirm these donations through the Illinois State Board of Elections Web site.

    Here’s something else you can “uncover”, NBC…..Rahm’s brother Ari is Trump’s entertainment agent. Birds of a feather?

    Not surprised. I have thought all along that Mr. Trump was a plant. Oh, he may very well run as an independent, because the Republician party is not about to nominate him. It will be a move to split the vote, insuring another dreaded four years of insanity under Mr. Oboma.
    For Mr. Trump to give money to a snake like Rahm tells a lot about his true character. Hell, Chicago has lost it voting him in office. The world is turning upside down with corruption, and deciet.
