Rahm Emanuel: Ties to Rich Secretive Agency?
Rahm Emanuel is the mayor of Chicago. He's been a terrible leader, but he's Obama's boy, so he's there. He's been the leader of a city that is essentially 5 times more dangerous than the hottest war zone in the Middle East, with about 20 shootings every night this year.
But this Obama Democrat, this liberal elite loser, is now travelling with his wife and kids and entourage of 14, to Rome, and that trip is being funded by a highly secretive organization called World Business Chicago, which is super secret, has private money, but that also gets money from Chicago taxpayers. Nobody will say where this money comes from, including Emanuel. This "agency" is supposed to promote business and jobs and bring companies to Chicago, but the trip is really to see the elevation of an Arch Bishop to Cardinal. How is that business development for Chicago? Who is the money behind this organization? Rahm Emanuel, when asked, just said, "They raised it privately. This trip isn't at taxpayers cost."
TotallyRight looked into this. We wanted to know if this is some kind of slush fund entity like the Clinton Foundation, wherein they take in money from who knows where, and can spend it and use it to further their radical agenda or use it to payoff loyalist cronies. We found out that WBC is an entity whose Chairman is...you guessed it - Rahm Emanuel. And the entity gets tax money from Chicago taxpayers according to 2015 documents filed by the organization. $1.2 million to be exact. So even though Rahm said none of the money for his trip is taxpayers money, maybe some of it is taxpayer money, Rahm. You're starting to sound like Hillary Clinton. Better be careful. And maybe some of the money that flows magically into WBC is pay-for-play, like the Clinton Foundation. Maybe some of it is money from Islamic nations or groups. We don't really know, but wouldn't it be rich to find out that American taxpayer money is being co-mingled with terror sponsor state money and funding the fun and games of yet another Democrat?
TotallyRight thinks something is very wrong with Rahm Emanuel as a leader in this country, and his track record in Chicago should preclude him from being anywhere near serious government leadership ever again. We asked the WBC to comment on where their funding comes from, or to point us to any public filing or disclosure about same, and have received no response. We're going to keep an eye on Emanuel and all our friends at Breitbart and Drudge will be doing the same. Something just very Hillary/Obama-like with this guy which is why this trip, this WBC organization, and Emanuel, smells fishy.
