Rahm Emanuel Has Raised $10.6 Million for His Mayoral Campaign

Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs gave Emanuel $50,000, while Kenneth Griffin, chief executive of Chicago-based Citadel Investment Group LLC, contributed $100,000. David Geffen, co-founder of DreamWorks SKG, donated $100,000.

Only,three-quarters of his contributions came from Chicago or surrounding Cook County.

Needeless to say, this is a huge campaign fund. Current Mayor Richard Daley spent $4.6 million in 2007 to defeat two opponents.


  1. Donating to a campaign fund is an easy and "squeaky-clean" way to pay a politician for a past or future intervention on your behalf. This is the voluntary exchange of politics.

  2. Who would give this filthy animal money? Never again will I knowingly purchase the propducts of these parasite corporations. Giving money to psychopaths like Rahm is like giving a gun and your daughter to serial murderers. Scumbags.

  3. Donating to a campaign fund could also be used a form of money laundering too. If they elect him I won't be shocked, the fact that he's got ties to Obama will make everyone love him.
