Lawsuit alleges 'con shell game' to build Obama Center in Chicago park

The City of Chicago has engaged in “a short con shell game” to help Barack Obama build a 12-story museum and library dedicated to his presidency on public parkland, a new lawsuit alleges. Protect Our Parks filed the lawsuit Monday seeking to block construction of the Obama Presidential Center in historic Jackson Park on Chicago’s South Side, where a young Obama cut his political teeth.

Established law precludes the Chicago Park District from transferring public parkland in Jackson Park to a private non-governmental entity for its own use, the lawsuit claims.


Are we seeing typical Chicago strong arm tactics at play here?


"Defendants have chosen to deal with it in a classic Chicago political way, known as a short con shell game, a corrupt scheme to deceive and seemingly legitimize an illegal land grab, one that will endure for centuries to come, regardless of future changing public park needs and increasingly consequential environmental conditions,” according to the lawsuit.


It appears Obama Presidential Center has responded to the accusations with this.....


In reaction to the lawsuit, an Emanuel spokesman told the paper that the Obama Presidential Center is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create jobs and honor the legacy of Chicago's favorite son.


However.....


In January more than 100 professors from the University of Chicago released a letter questioning the project’s touted economic benefits to South Side residents.

A month later, a report in the Chicago Tribune estimated that the cost to taxpayers to widen streets and construct underpasses around the center would be $175 million.

Apparently Obama is right up there with Al Capone.

Sounds about right.

I can't understand why they need a 12 story building to store porno mags and coloring books.

It truly boggles the mind.

It's certainly appropriate.

Of course the Obama "Center" will be mired in corruption.

He wouldn't have it any other way right?

And maybe that's what "decided" the location in the first place !

And maybe they should consider floors 2 thru 12 for "affordable" housing.

😎🚬

Especially since, according to reports, all the records will be digitized, and no physical documents will be stored there.

Nope, there won't be traditional library materials:


“Obama has been a game-changer from the beginning. If you see the presidential libraries of current living presidents, you’ll see how those centers have evolved,” she said, reports the Chicago Tribune. “Going digital is a natural progression of lessons learned from those entities.”


Obama's Presidential Library Won't Actually Have Library Materials

How about that?

If that's an Obama library, it will have to be gay porn.

Well I can't think of a better way to commemorate Obama's presidency - a con job of a building pushed through by corrupt Chicago mafia (I mean Democrats)
