Longest Serving Alderman’s Son Gives “Top 10 Reasons Why Chicago Should Not Host Olympics”

Jay Stone is the son of Alderman Bernie Stone of the 50th Ward. Jay has created a web site, No Chicago Games, that outlines Chicago’s long history of political corruption.  He makes the case that President Obama should NOT endorse or support Mayor Daley in his fanatic quest to host the 2016 Olympics.

The Top 10 Reasons Why Chicago Shouldn’t Host the Olympics

1. President Obama should not reward Daley with his support for a Chicago Olympics because of the numerous crimes and civil rights violations that have occurred during Daley’s 29 year tenure as mayor and states attorney. Given the amount of corruption that has happened under Daley, it is absurd that President Obama or First Lady Michelle are even considering making a presentation on behalf of a Daley sponsored Chicago Olympics.

2. Daley planned and followed through on an unlawful hiring and election rigging system before Daley was sworn in as mayor. Daley is scheming to use Olympic contracts and contractors to further his political might just like Daley did before becoming mayor of Chicago. One election rigging scheme, shame on Daley. A second election rigging scheme, shame on us.

  1. Number ten doesn’t make sense.Political corruption and waste aren’t going to magicly disappear if we don’t have the Olympics.

  2. No James, you’re right. But adding the Olympics will give that corruption a massive afterburner boost. Better to leave it alone than throw more fuel onto the fire. It’s easier to fight a small fire than a big one.

  3. Amen to the 2nd post!
