Rahm Emanuel's Privatize Chicago Plan
Emanuel is Chicago's worst ever mayor.
by Stephen Lendman
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spent years waging war on progressive politics. He's a corporate predator turned politician.
As White House strategist and senior advisor, he represented the worst of the Clinton years. His abrasive style earned him the nickname "Rahmbo."
From 1999 - 2002, he earned a reported $18 million as managing director for Chicago investment bank firm Kleinwort, Wasserstein.
From January 2003 - January 2009, he represented Illinois' 5th congressional district. From January 2005 - January 2007, he chaired the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
From January 2009 - October 2010, he was Obama's White House Chief of Staff. He left to run for mayor of Chicago. On May 16, 2011, he won easily. Doing so fulfilled his longtime ambition.
