Illinois Governor’s Incompetent, Illiterate Insult

Aug 1, 2016

Back in 2011 when he was just a super-rich hack working with other education “reformers” to destroy the public schools, current Illinois governor Bruce Rauner e-mailed Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel all the time. They may be “frenemies” now, but back then they were best buddies, investing and vacationing together. In one of those e-mails, Rauner had the nerve to call half of Chicago Public School teachers “virtually illiterate” and half the city’s principals “incompetent.”

Talk about incompetent–every politician worth his salt knows never to put his actual disgusting attitudes toward ordinary people in writing! Now this incompetent hack is governor, and he’s still doing his best to ruin the public schools and everything else in the state that ordinary people rely on.

Mayor Emanuel, of course, did nothing to expose or deny Rauner’s stupid insult. What would you expect of someone who closed 50 schools in one year?
