Rahm in New York, not on public schedule

| No Comments

Another example of how limited Mayor Rahm Emanuel's transparency is--for the second time in recent weeks, Emanuel's public schedule does not include out-of-town events--and he is in New York making a major national television appearence.

At issue is not whether these events are open press--but letting the people of Chicago know where the mayor is traveling on non-personal business. On Tuesday morning, Emanuel popped up in New York City, where he appeared on CBS "This Morning" to discuss gun control and defend his own record. For a video clip and story on that, click HERE. A few weeks, ago, Emanuel flew to Washington D.C. to appear at the Saban Forum, another event not on his schedule.
