"Culture of Corruption." Rahm Donor Protection Program On Display in First Runoff Debate

CHICAGO (March 16, 2015)-Following is the statement of United Working Families Executive Director Kristen Crowell in response to the first Chicago mayoral runoff debate Monday.

"Whether it was executives who profit from his dangerous privatization and closing of public neighborhood schools, or the culture of cronyism that led to the red-light camera program he fought to expand just five months after he took office, Rahm Emanuel continued his donor protection program in tonight's debate.
"Rahm said he "inherited" a "culture of corruption." In fact, all he's done is expand it and dress it in a pricier suit."
