The [Tuesday] Papers

1. "A top aide to Cook County Board President Todd Stroger arrested Monday and accused of steering hundreds of thousands of dollars in contracts to her own public relations firm and associates who might not have done any work is scheduled to appear in bond court later today," the Tribune reports.

"(Deputy chief of staff Carla) Oglesby was arrested on a warrant as she pulled her vehicle out of a downtown parking garage shortly before 4 p.m. Monday, said Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for State's Attorney Anita Alvarez. Oglesby is expected in court Tuesday morning for a bond hearing."

Hardcore!

"(Oglesby) left work early, and she was seen entering her car," Daly said. "Our investigators moved in, and as she was exiting the garage, they blocked her car and she was arrested without incident."

2. Spencer Maus contributes a political ad:

Millionaire Politician Senator Bill Brady

In the last two years somehow he didn't pay any Federal Income Taxes

We paid Millionaire, Politician, Senator Bill Brady over $76,000

And he didn't pay any Federal Income Taxes?

He drives a Porsche and owns a Florida condo

Who is this guy?

>_>_>_>_> _>_>_

Keep going

_>_>_>_>_>_>_

Keep going

>_>_>_>_>_

Hi! I'm that guy! I'm CPA Bob Smith and I do Millionaire Bill Brady's taxes and financial planning. If you would like to legally avoid paying Federal Income taxes, own a Porsche and a condo in Florida, call me at 312-555-5555.

I'm CPA Bob Smith and I really approve this ad! Oh, and vote for Bill Brady!

3. "Democrats to Employ Man Who Played Obama During 2008 Campaign."

4. Jon Stewart on Rahm Emanuel: "Chicago: Where being a dick isn't a political liability, it's a job requirement."

5. Liberals are stupid too.

6. "Emanuel, who grew up in the suburbs, said he was born in Chicago, raised in the 'greater Chicago area' and owns a home in the city where he has raised his family," the Tribune reports.

Are you saying Wilmette is greater than Chicago?!

"I have spent my entire life, outside of going to college and working at the White House, here in the city of Chicago," he said.

So that's four years, presumably, at Sarah Lawrence College; one year, at least, at Northwestern for grad school; five years in the Clinton White House and two years in the Obama White House. As a three-term congressman, of course, he was mostly in Washington.

But besides that, his entire life!

"He said residents aren't 'really interested in my residency.'"

He could just as well be from Wisconsin! Chicagoans just don't care!

*

"Emanuel also visited Pilsen, where he met with United Neighborhood Organization CEO Juan Rangel, a strong ally of Mayor Richard Daley's. Rangel said he wasn't endorsing Emanuel but felt he was among several candidates who are qualified to be mayor. Emissaries from those campaigns also greeted Emanuel outside Nuevo Leon restaurant on 18th Street.

"'It's a great restaurant visited by tourists,' said City Clerk Miguel del Valle, who has said he's running to be mayor. 'It's a must stop for tourists, and I can understand why Rahm went there on his first day back.'"

7. "Future ComEd Bills May Be Smaller."

I'm assuming this means literally smaller in order to save on paper costs because, well, it's ComEd.

8. Chicago's Next Olympic Bid.

9. "Star-Studded Movie May Film In Wilmette."

What, the Life and Times of Rahm Emanuel?

10. "I've been intrigued by stories that Chicago voters won't vote for Rahm Emanuel for mayor because of Obama administration Middle East policies," writes James Besser in The Jewish Week.

"What makes the story interesting: that's probably the least of the now-former White House chief of staff's political problems.

"First the Jewish problem: as some reports have suggested, Emanuel is taking the blame for Obama administration Israel policies detested by the Jewish right and a good part of the Orthodox community. That faction is a tiny proportion of Chicago's diverse electorate, but it's a loud and influential one.

"But there's more, something most of these stories has missed: the city's big progressive Jewish community isn't exactly enamored of the trash-talking Emanuel, either. They knew him and worked with him back when he was a local political activist and fundraiser, then a member of the House representing portions of the North Side.

"To GOP spinmeisters, Emanuel is one of those socialist-leaning liberals; to a lot of Chicago's Jewish liberals, he's a political manipulator without any real commitment to their priorities."
