Chicago Tribune Sues Rahm Emanuel For Using Private E-Mail Account For Official Communications

It looks like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton have something in common. The Chicago Tribune says Mayor Emanuel is violating the state's open records law because he uses a private e-mail account and text messages to conduct official city business and it's suing him to make those records public. The Tribune's lawsuit says its public records requests from Mayor Emanuel's office "have been met with a pattern of non-compliance, partial compliance, delay and obfuscation." It accuses Emanuel of using his private cell phone and personal e-mail account to do the public's business without scrutiny, leading to a "lack of transparency."

This is the second lawsuit The Tribune has filed against Emanuel this year. It earlier sued him for refusing to produce e-mail communications discussing a no-bid contract for the Chicago public schools that is currently the subject of an ongoing federal investigation. "We are seeking the release of public records on matters of great interest to citizens, but the city refuses to divulge them," Tribune Editor Gerould Kern said in a statement. "Regrettably, the city's denial is part of a pattern of resistance to releasing public documents covered by the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. We are compelled, therefore, to go to court for the second time in three months to force the city's compliance."

The Illinois Attorney General's Office has taken the position that written communications public officials make about public matters using their private e-mail accounts and cell phones are subject to the state's public records law. Other legal scholars disagree on whether the law extends to such communications.

The father of deception is the devil. Satan is the ultimate deceiver. (John 8:44 "You are of your father the devil....When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.)NKJV

Adam and Eve believed the lie Satan told in the garden. (Genesis 3:1-24......13....And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."....) NKJV

It took a professional deceiver to convince Eve to disregard the command of God.

John 8:24 "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." (NKJV)

There are those who have convinced many that you do not have to believe that Jesus is the Messiah in order to have your sins forgiven. It takes a professional deceiver to persuade men that there are many ways to heaven absent of believing and obeying the gospel.

Matthew 4:10 Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God , and Him only you shall serve.'" (NKJV)

It takes a professional deceiver to convince men that praying to the Virgin Mary and other dead saints is not worship.

Matthew 28:18-19 Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (NKJV)
Mark 16:16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

It takes a professional deceiver to convince people that Jesus was telling his disciples to baptize all nations so. 1. They could join the denomination of their choice. 2. That baptism would be a testimony of their faith. 3. That baptism was not essential for salvation. 4. That baptism was simply an act of obedience without any spiritual purpose. 5. That baptism follows forgiveness from sin. 6. That Jesus was telling his disciple to baptized men with Holy Spirit baptism. 7. That men could be saved without water baptism because the thief on the cross was saved without water baptism. 8. That atheists and unbelieving infants should be baptized in order to remove the guilt of Adam's sin. 9 That infants need to be baptized in order to have their sin nature removed. 10 That infants need to be baptized in order have the original sin of Adam forgiven. [Question: Adult Christians have all their sins washed away by the blood of Christ. How would it be possible to pass sins on to their children?] It takes a professional deceiver to convince men that sin can be inherited.

Gary, I have only lived in Indy for a few years ... when was the last time the Star filed a similar claim against a mayor or governor in central Indiana?

Gary R. Welsh said...

Many years ago they were more aggressive about such things. Since Gannett has owned the Star, it pretty much doesn't happen.

Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton both worked for Obama. Maybe Rahm picked up some tricks from Hillary. I had strong suspicions that Obama was not going to be from Left, but rather from the Corporate Wing of the Democratic Party before he was elected in 2008. Hope and Change was Smoke and Errors. You could convert Hope and Change into what ever your mind thought it would be. Obama selected Hillary and other retreads from Bill Clinton's time in the White House to serve in his administration.

Our local McMega-Media could care less about investigative reporting as it relates to corruption. Oh some times some hapless sap will be a sacrificial lamb. In any case it would take a diligent prosecutor to move forward on law breaking, but we lack that also.

I wonder if he will let this crisis go to waste?

Now, imagine not just a mayor of Chitcago but a president wholly owned by mossad.
If the Saudis own 0bama it's entirely possible for mossad to get one of their guys in too.
