According to a Chicago Tribune poll, Emanuel has a 27 percent approval rate, and 74 percent of Chicagoans believe that the mayor lied about his knowledge of the slaying of McDonald, a black 17-year-old whose death at the hands of police sparked outrage and protests.

The poll also shows that 83 percent of African-Americans did not believe Emanuel’s version of the incident while 76 percent of Hispanics and 67 percent of whites felt the same. Sixty-eight percent of those polled disagreed with Emanuel’s decision to fight the release of the video of McDonald’s death. Read more at the Chicago Tribune.

  1. What happened to that thing called Lashon Hara? Mayor Emanuel is JEWISH, and I don’t think there’s any Toeles in announcing to the Gantze Yeshivishe Velt that most Chicagoans don’t see him as a trustworthy person. It’s not like this “all-important” fact is going to help anyone.

  2. It is clear that Rahm is lying thru his teeth. He wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him in the head. The Cubs will win the World Series long before this white crook ever says the truth and shows that he cares for Black lives! Why hasn’t this bum been impeached yet?

  3. During his campaign for mayor of Chicago, he repeatedly claimed to be an Orthodox Jew. The truth is that he regularly is Mechalel Shabbos BeFarhesia.

    CHAZAL have taught us that such behavior is “KeEilu Oved Avodah Zarah”!
