"WGN radio newsroom. And each of the stories that matter on seven twenty WGN. Procacci Alabana to watch this right here instead and twenty WGN free weeks from tomorrow, it's the mayor's race first election. It's we call it a primary because if somebody gets fifty percent, plus one they become the mayor that that ain't gonna happen. Doesn't seem so five hundred people in this race. So then it will be a runoff in April. But at this point there are a top five the most recent polling information that we have that we can rely on shows five cata front runners all statistically within the reach of each other. And then another five that are in the back there six that are in the back that are all kind of lingering in the basement there is some names in the back there. That are a little bit surprising are Merrill analyst, Jon Ritchie. Former Lee a state Representative and also Cook County Commissioner and now an attorney in private practice. So let's talk about your your thought. I. First of all, let's talk about Tamara Enya who's been sitting in. She's at the back of the top tier of candidates. And somebody that depending there's other polls show her far far better position. But the, but the one that we're all kind of relying as most physically scientific one that that were that were you know, that they've done so far. Do you think that this revelation today? That Amara Enya has had some financial problems their past the things that she did not file appropriately. Remember, she had to pay a fine that actually Kanye west ended up paying off right of all seventy thousand in fines that were related to election election-related alderman in the last cycle. But the filing reports and things like that that if you're not a full time politician, I don't know they just seems as if that might be easy to fall behind on those kinds of things exactly rocket science on those. Oh, it's really not have been doing it for a long time, which I guess doesn't prove the point. Nevertheless, the rules are the rules as they say, I think the biggest issue in concern with a Mars revelations today aren't so much the allegations themselves, but I think the campaign did a very poor job in how they handled those. If you're going to get into a race like this. You have to know some of the things that are going to come out if you have federal tax liens other financial irregularities like that. You know, they're gonna come out. You should know what your response is going to be and get ahead of it to go forward. I don't get out ahead of it. But you'll be ready with a rapid response to say. Here's what happens. Sometimes you say I made a mistake and destroy, and I think people will accept that. They're not looking for anybody who says that they're infallible. And if they are those are the part of the first people you question, you worry about, but the problem that I saw when reading that story was, you know, she came up with one story he'll with respect to the filing of the Texas. It was never gave me my ten ninety nine. Then they're like, well, they showed that you did. Well. Must've forgotten to include it. She's running as an accountant. She's she's she's running as somebody who is who's very literate in the in the ways of accounting, and finance, and you know, that sometimes when your intelligence comes back to bite you in the, but I mean, she has multiple degrees. There's no question. She's an intelligent woman. And none of this takes away from her ideology from her desire or ability to do the job. Maybe. But it does it does deflect from her competence. It's a flex on her confident competent a little bit to her credibility as well. Again, not just because mistakes were made say, hey, I fell behind it student loans. Hey fell behind in this, whatever it may be. But the fact that you weren't ready to answer it, and I think people come away this is a big stretch. But it just it's very time. It's kind of thing it's not just what you did. You did such a bad job explaining it and defending it. Well, she did say I fell behind on my student loans, and she's wearing it more as a badge of honor. I understand the lived experience of normal Chicagoans because I had I had to fight to get back on my. Feet again and understand that it wasn't easy to pay the bills. I think that was it's true. It's true. The student loans is not the big piece of this now. And what is what do you think it is? She gets a lot of credit for and I think that's something that resonates with seventeen thousand dollar loan from the Kennedy campaign, the younger payment. Now, the the young people that she has been energizing actually come out and support her they can identify with. Hey, you know, what I fell behind it student loan payments? Right. All but nobody wears a badge of honor of hey, I failed to report one third of my income last year. Yeah. That's that's the piece. It's more thrashed. Stuff and not that pay off the loans, although her income out the other piece, I we should we should mention here. And I think that that there's the idea that she's kind of in this profile of like you. You know, you're seeing with AO see the new congresswoman from from New York Alexander Casio Cortez that she is, you know, this new brand of young progressive women who are stepping forward, and they're going to we're gonna take the Democratic Party in a different direction, and they want to change the American political scene. That's there. There are people trying to fold into that. But competence is the is the big question. There's a competence question about her but about Cortez. Right. Well, and the cabinets issue in my mind, and the credibility issue to Amara really did not come from today it came which took Brown's endorsement. Yeah. There's something that you just can't harmonize here between somebody saying, I'm the fresh new face as she is the fresh new face, and she brings a lot to the table. And I'm going to I'm going to embrace the woman who is under a long running federal investigation as a show of support for my campaign. You can't have that both ways we can all the other candidates. Have it both ways when we have this huge ethics investigation going on that rises from city hall to the state house with Mike Madigan now being on those tapes that we've we've found out more and more not that end he's accused of any wrongdoing at this point. But you have so many of these mayoral candidates linked to the players involved at the center of this ethics scandal for the city. And is that is that. Okay. I suppose to be part of that old way of doing things in terms of your political mentorship. And the people you who've supported you. But still saying you are for reform. Well, I think that you know, you cannot hold the census from this. Supporters against the candidates themselves. I mean, it sells papers it makes for very easy things. But in politics, do tend to be a lot of overlapping relationships, and the reality is that I was telling somebody earlier, you know, a lot of the candidates they're in the top tier your they have more luggage than more baggage than O'Hare does. So you're so the problem is going to become nobody's going to pass a purity test here, but you have to say what have they done not what are their supporters done? But what have they done? And what can they do a Mara kind of skewed that whole thing because she took somebody who she didn't have a relationship with with Dorothy Brown and welcomed bringing in somebody that you already knew had problems. Does this knocker her out or as Harold Washington proved in one thousand nine hundred three herald Washington went to jail went to jail for not paying his taxes? His excuse was that he didn't remember to file them. His birthday is April. Fifteenth kind of hard to not associates that. Importance of their day yet because of his incredible presentation during the during during the primaries there and during the, you know, the run up to the election because back then it was like you had the democratic primary Republican primary, and then he he took on a guy who said that the Republican was a newcomer that not burning up the nobody had ever thought about and Harold Washington became Mary. Harold Washington became it was reelected, right? As as mayor of Chicago before he passed away. He was a guy that that that was able to get beyond that kind of a scandal back in the nineteen eighties. Can do you think Amara and you can get past that now? Well, let's do this. As you do mean this as a complimentary her she has a time and a place in Chicago government. I really believe that. I don't think that this is either what is maybe fortune for the second tier candidates right now is there's going to be so much Dirk being thrown back and forth. Among the top tier? These types of allegations, which aren't as sexy as people being wired up, an improper contributions, etc. Allegations about her student loans. It's really going to get lost in the clutter while kind of the people in the tier one that's going to get a lot of the focus. What's your what's daily thing about preckwinkle, what's Mendoza's saying about, Chico, etc? And so this he'll if it was a two person or three person race. It's big news. But as a lot of other water to come under the bridge here. All right. So you got a couple of big events coming up this week. You've got the form that that Anna's hosting coming business WGN radio. We're doing a mural forum on Wednesday broadcasting live on seven o'clock here on WGN and then on Thursday. There's a FOX's during a forum with Flannery, and it's an Lincoln for forum. So you're going to see these people, and there's it's interesting because it's. Is like the top. The top candidates are getting the invites here who do you think right now has a leg up. Well, listen, I hit the Rams and the over show. I feel. We're all familiar with this. Who's having a better week right now leading up into this? Well, I think right now anybody who doesn't stumble over themselves to get a knife in the back is having a good week Bill Daley continues to impress me from the standpoint that again, I never thought people would vote for a daily again. I don't mean any disrespect. And he has kind of gotten away from that. I think Paul Vallas is kind of floating adrift somewhat Gary cheese. Because I am I am I am, you know, because Paul's unknown commodity at this point in time. No names tend to do well in the polling, but he really hasn't been there. Okay. Sherry, chico. Where do you think he said, I think Jerry is just right now, not doing anything to get himself out of the pack. You'll people can't identify saying carries the guy running on this or I remember gears commercial or something that they can connect him to right now, then Susannah, listen, Suzanne Susannah, I think is still appealing to a big cross section of folks. You've got a lot of undecided voters. How are they going to break voters are getting tired of a lot of this stuff? I think if Susanna can continue to run a her own merits and get out of the muck of the solely stuff, the Burke stuff cetera. You'll she's right in there and Willie Wilson listen Willie from the Geico I should. I mean, the doctor Dr Wilson I've known him for a while. But I think he has been predicted. I think all want to get around ten percent of the vote. Now, I still think despite Dorothy endorsement of Omar, I think more of Dorothy supported we'll go to Willie Wilson then to Amara. But again, I still maintain that from first place to third place. Probably be under two points right to watch watch this space three weeks away. John ritchie. Our she'll Merrill analyst the Roe Conn show with Anna davlantes is here, and we'll be here through the rest of this thing. And if you if you have any complaints just write them directly to him.

Landing on a car that flew by on the highway in so much snow was turned out by this plow that it cracked windshield of the car. Shannon talk to the drivers. So so is it like shooting? I like being blown out lower. Yeah. It's a, but it's a massive snow blower that they use their for the taxiways and runways altered. Don't they have a melter whoever melter that they can it's a melting pad that they can push some of that stuff into when they really run out of room for it. So I tell you that only from the standpoint of it could be worse. You could be driving by O'Hare an accident. Pelted with so much snow was anybody in the his windshield. I'm the video is wild is windshield is totally busted up. It is funny. How when you look at like parking lot. How the there are mountains. Everest sized mountains in the parking lot. We haven't really had a total cumulative snow that at high here. Now, we have not had much snow at all remember that year a couple of years back when they ran out of places to put the snow in the city. I think just started shipping, Indiana. That's what we do with all of our problems. There you go Indiana. People who want to avoid the taxes. That's what we do. We send our snow and people who want to avoid taxation and are gamblers. Yes. Yeah. Not for long. For a long my friends. We're going to be doing allow gambling here in Illinois. Hey, did you hear we finally whittled down the mayoral candidates to fourteen o who didn't make the less Dorothy Brown? Kind of a shocker, but I should say not too surprising. If you actually looked at her her petition signatures Laura's did a story a couple of weeks back if which pointed out that some of the signatures. I think even my seven year old could could point out that they'd clearly been signed by the same person just signing a different name over and over and over again. But still rather surprising for a veteran politician Dorothy Brown who is traditionally despite all of her problems both in terms of efficiency of her office. And the problem of federal investigation in your own conduct is managed to keep a lot of support. I think she got forty seven percent of the vote in her Cook County court clerks race backing twenty sixteen she had hoped to be on the ballot for mayor. But today Chicago Board of elections booted are often she says, she's not gonna fight it. She got other things. She's about to fight is my well, she's been funding though, you say that she has been under investigation for years. So to argue that something has changed now and his imminent. I.

"C k to seventy nine seventy nine seventy nine Gary McCarthy mind issue, you hispan- guns. It's about putting violent criminals in jail. Dr Keith Avalon old friend of mine from the Fox News channel. How are you? Great should preckwinkle being done. There's a contingent of voters that want the status quo, man. Cow sixty nine. Never late never rockaways tomorrow. Okay. You have no money corrupt. L S AM eight ninety. I'm john. You know, you are. So Dorothy Brown is are in the circuit court of Cook County here shown successfully ran for treasurer many years ago, also mayors Chicago and seven ran for the president Cook County board of commissioners in twenty ten last week. She said she was being targeted with election fraud in her fight to get on and stay on the mayoral ballot. We are what forty three days away from the election. She has called for an investigation into what she said was a sudden reversal inner fortunes, even James Allen. The Chicago Board of election. Commissioners spokesperson said that she has to prove that the fall. Thousand five hundred signatures of registered voters required. Are in fact, valid let's start there with our clerk a Madam clerk Dorothy Brown. Thank you for joining me here this afternoon, double WLS. What's the status of your challenge to those who are challenging your petitions? Thank you, John just to correct something. I am on the ballot. H E is making sure that we fight back. But the addition challenge that I was put forth, and yes, it it. It goes on the handwriting. The signature of the with a handwriting expert now they had a lot of not experts at people that were just off hired off the streets are reviewing and so some of them even though the people read the address so they couldn't read their signature petition policies here. In Chicago in the county of cook. They seem Byzantine best and positively fraudulent a lotta times. Absolutely. You know, there was people that would be your that. In my opinion. Did not know what they were doing. Why people were training them on the spot? Also wanna be hearing officers actually got hurt her. Say a job with the other side while the process going on. So how how buys what's how unbiased was she so many different things going on? And she Cook County actually controls the petition system for Chicago. And they never restricted access for the county from being able to make changes to that system. And the kind of president is is in the race. And the technology department the county reports so you see her fingerprints all over this. That is a real problem. You all sudden get an almost an additional two thousand objection the last week of review. And then you're you're you're number of junctions. You're the amount that we wind up being negative is a thousand more than the other challenge which was from. This is going to be sorted out. Manam clerk. Well, there is what the handwriting expert so everything hinges on when the handwriting expert gets done. Okay. Dorothy Brown is here on WLS. I heard you describe over the weekend one of your initiatives for the city. Should you become mayor are planning districts, can you give me a thirty second to to'real, and what that means? Oh, that's probably in the switch. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. You're off the air for just a moment describing what a planning district is. Well, that means that we would get away from the war level post economic development, and we will move to eight planning district with downtown being one south side, south central and south west side, north side, north central and northwest side and west side, those eight and then I would have a team of experts to put together the go to other plants, and then the community along with the little special the automobile with participating at that point to actually put the meat on the plan to help develop the plan that we would attract developers use tip funds for the truly blighted areas. And better opportunities don't find that those kinds of things actually increase the actually been implemented plant. Dorothy Brown is with us. I must ask you. I was back in October of two thousand fifteen at the FBI, execute a search warrant at your home. Seized your county issued cell phone to be clear you've not been charged with anything denying any wrongdoing. What's the status of that investigation? That was no search warrant into my home. So just to correct that information it was just a cell phone that was given back to be. And I haven't heard any anything further. What do you make of the charges against Ed Burke? Well, I think that it it goes to my idea that we need to get away from the ward level the post because it's just ripe for corruption too many times. I hear people say that they they have to donate one go to award office and talked about zoning permits they leave with or they get a donation envelope or invitation to a fundraiser once they leave and that sort of thing and they feel committed to doing. So it's just what is it? It really is just ripe for corruption should any any city employee alderman, especially or their spouses be able to represent companies that want to do business with the city. Well, you never can tell when a company is going to want to do business with the city. So you can't tell a person just because the company decided to do business with the city to resign their job. So that would be you can't answer that that's not something that you can control. But the key is that if they decide that they want to business with the city that then that all demand would have to of course, accused themselves from from that particular, which is what had Burke did hundreds of times he recused himself. But the law firm still got the business, and he's still got done what he wanted to get done. Well, the key is that what he did what was really want us companies that he was getting money from or or his family getting it necessary trying to get business from the city. They were or maybe they were just trying to get permits like this particular one was trying to do very king, and they wind up having to donate or do business with his. There's so many ways that that these automatic. I get a round this particular business. They don't have to take one vote on what something that a wants to do. It may just be getting the permits, and that's what do you have a downstate? You still I would assume in Springfield for the inauguration of the brand new governor Pritzker, what do you think about the fact that the Republicans have zero power sensually down there? He has veto proof majorities both on on both house. And the Senate side. Do you think there's room for the Republicans to be contributors to this new situation, Springfield? I'm sure they will be given an opportunity to make recommendations at the life. They're in line with what needs to be done those recommendations would be considered. But I was very excited about some of the comments that the governor of his remarks, especially where he said that he will not balance budget on the backs of the poor and the sick. Similar to what the former governor did with the withholding up the funds for the home healthcare services that I personally know organization that went bankrupt or had to close because of and he's talked about funding, the schools funding infrastructure instead of Illinois other criminal Justice system until I was very and even downstate and helping them to get transit down. The do you worry that the graduated income tax, which is coming our way. We'll force more people to move across state lines. I do not worry about that. I think that that will occur. I think that as long as you providing people with good services, then people won't have any problem with that graduation. Of course, it's actually, you know. You know, probably overdue from the standpoint of the rich. Okay. We're going to have to leave it there. Madam clerk. But thank you for your time or going to try to put together some some forums up here WLS as well. And we'll invite you, and if you're scheduled rents we'd love to see you. Good. Thank you. Thank you that. It's Dorothy Brown here on W L S..
