Your Tax Dollars at Work: Paying For Strippers in Chicago


Bazooka

A recent information request in Illinois revealed that the City of Chicago was writing off visits to a local strip club as a business expense.

For the Good of Illinois
reported:

Two days ago, For the Good of Illinois added another tranche of data to our online transparency portal at openthebooks.com. This installment includes every check written by the City of Chicago from FY 2002 to 2011.

It contains $74 billion in vendor payments. Last year alone, over 69,000 entities received checks, and you can see it all at openthebooks.com. The data contains numerous details: vendor code, transaction id, PO number, fund, department, amount, check number, and date.

Here’s a curious item found while digging though the data…

The Admiral Theatre, Inc., is a strip club on the northwest side of the city. Obama for America is the President’s campaign fund.

The City of Chicago approved payouts to each of them, using the same catch-all “vendor code” or expense classification. Further review found that neither vendor exists in the Chicago’s current on-line transparency portal.

The Admiral Theatre strip club received $5,197.78 from the City of Chicago between the dates 2006 through 2011. The sixteen checks ranges from $1.00 to $1,900. A buck? Is some one tipping dancers using City of Chicago checks?

    The $1.00 “check” was likely a test to see if the payment would be kicked out of the system.

    When it went through, they opened the floodgates.

    Yet another reason why Illinois is the worst state in the nation.

    I would say that the fact Obama for America received a donation from the City of Chicago AND failed to disclose it is an even bigger scandal than the strip club (not to minimize that). Talk about a culture of corruption.

    Why am I not surprised. . .

    Strip clubs? Guess it goes along with government screwing the law-abiding tax-paying American.

    What is this about a city government giving monetary donations to a candidate. . where is the investigation. .the media. . our Pravda?. . oh yes comrade. . .

    Speaking of tax dollars, Bush and Cheney are largely responsible for the dire state of the United States’s deficit, not that “socialist” Obama.

    “Chuckie” (coincidentally #13), please try to stay with the rest of the class, we’re talking about City of Chicago, not misinformation, aka koolaid, put out by the DNC.
