    Just how much money do we tax payers have to spend defending the city from clear-cut violations of the Fifth Amendment? If an alderman were creating a sexually hostile work environment, it would be talked about endlessly and breathlessly. Why should we have any tolerance at all for violation of CONSTITUTIONAL rights?

    Setting aside the simple high school education that could spot this, is there no training at all for new aldermen? I don't expect every politician to know all the minutiae of municipal code, but the Bill of Rights, yep, seems like required reading to me.

    Alderman, I have no problems if in private life you meet a bully on his own terms, but in public life, you SERVE as a representative of all the people. A bully who uses the power of public office against specific individual citizens goes by a different name -- tyrant.

    What does our president have anything to do with this? I shook Moreno's hand when he first was running for alderman, every promise he made was false. Anything that comes out of that man's mouth is B.S. Maldonado and that jerk do not give a dam about people in their neighborhoods. All these people care about is profit. After they are done they will take the money and run. Obama was from here, why didn't he in his 8 years do anything for our city? Open your eyes before you have another mayor daley on your hands. I refuse to respect a man that caused most of this Chicago financial tragedy we are facing. Anyone else would have been jailed. Look up how much your alderman are paid. He has no right to make the zoning to single family, it is a business district. I have never been to the Double Door, but I wonder why they didn't try to purchase this property years ago.No alderman should have that much power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
