    Tillman blasts city's garage deal

    She rips mayor, his brother over firm's alleged slavery ties

    December 14, 2006
    BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter

    The City Council's champion for slave reparations accused Mayor Daley on Wednesday of forging ahead with the $563 million privatization of downtown parking garages in a show of "unprecedented favoritism" toward Morgan Stanley Investment Management.

    Ald. Dorothy Tillman (3rd) questioned whether it had anything to do with the position held by the mayor's brother.

    One day after a judge turned down her request to block Morgan Stanley's 99-year lease of the Millennium and Grant Park garages, Tillman refused to give up the fight.

    She introduced an ordinance at Wednesday's City Council meeting that would repeal a clause that tied the judge's hands and allowed the garage deal to go through. It essentially states that if the language of the agreement conflicts with any other city laws, "the provisions of this ordinance shall be controlling."

    [B]'Sending a signal'[/B

    "They made the City Council look like dummies. . . . [Corporation Counsel] Mara Georges shouldn't write something that gives away our powers," Tillman said, arguing that the City Council needs its own full-time attorney.

    Tillman also attempted to draw the mayor's brother into the controversy.

    Bill Daley is Midwest chairman of J.P. Morgan Chase. He was instrumental in the company's decision to acknowledge that its predecessor banks in Louisiana allowed 13,000 slaves to be used as collateral on loans and took ownership of 1,250 slaves when those loans defaulted.

    Tillman has argued that J.P. Morgan is a "predecessor" of Morgan Stanley, and therefore should have come clean as well, as required by Chicago's groundbreaking Slave Era Disclosure Ordinance.

    Georges has concluded that three J.P. Morgan partners joined investment bankers from another firm in the 1930s to form a "new and unrelated company."

    "When Bill Daley came in with J.P. Morgan, he was the one who made sure they admitted their ties to slavery. He, of all people, knows that Morgan Stanley" has ties to slavery too, Tillman said.

    "The mayor must be sending a signal to the business people that, 'This [slave disclosure ordinance] doesn't matter. We have a way around it.' "

    Georges denies claim
    Does Tillman believe City Hall is forging ahead with this week's closing on the garage deal because of the mayor's brother? "Ask him," she said with a smile.

    Bill Daley could not be reached for comment, and Mayor Daley did not attend Wednesday's meeting.

    Georges said Tillman's suggestion about Bill Daley was "absolutely not true."

    As for the clause cited by the judge, Georges said the same language has been inserted in roughly 50 financial transactions since 1999. Without it, bond deals, long-term leases and other mega-deals would simply not go through.

    For those of you that don't know "The Hat" or "Dorothy the Hat" she is one of Chicago's 50 useless alder-creatures (aldermen). Dorothy is a convicted prostitute that used to like to sell here wares in the area that she now represents. She is as useless as the other 49 alder-creatures but she is the worst claiming that everything in this city owes "her peoples" money because it had a one time connection to slavery. She openly spews hatred for whites, yet no one does anything about it. Just wanted to give you a little background on this Can't Understand Normal Thinking.

    slavery ties

    So, certain members of the minority class want US corporations that dealt with slave holders to repay those decendents of slaves large sums of money. Fine, lets go back to square 1. Who sold the white devils the slaves to be transported to America? AFRICANSin Africa! So, lets start making those African Nations pay up first. Then go after the shippers. I believe that they were English and French ships that started it . Only AFTER those African Nations that enslaved their own people pay up; the ship owners from England and other countries pay up, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, we can give EVERY PERSON who IS ALIVE TODAY and who were former slaves a settlement. BUT only by those individual SLAVE owners and corporation officials WHO ARE CURRENTLY alive.

    Just more bullshit from the radical black left and Hate America crowd.

    Does that mean I can sue Rome since their empire enslaved Anglos?

    And Jews can sue Egypt?
