Obama Caught Red Handed In A Bait And Switch In Personal Museum Scheme
The former President can’t help but make the news. Whether it be about poorly executed plans during his presidency that have now come to light or some new scandal. Obama is now engaged in a new debacle as he is trying to take some public land away from The citizens of Chicago.
Originally The Obama Presidential Center Advocates (OPCA) had gone through the appropriate channels. They went to the Chicago City Council and had an ordinance approved to lease out part of Historic Jackson Park. They had to transfer Public Park Land over to The City Of Chicago. The plan was to house a Presidential Library. But the plans magically changed.
Now The OPCA are intending to instead build a $500 Million Presidential Museum and monument focusing of course on Obama. The Presidential Library will be housed elsewhere or at least that’s the new plan. The advocates are intending to use the same city-approved ordinance to build this “Tribute to Obama.”
Luckily people noticed the switch and are not going to allow the former president to take advantage of the City. The OPCA is in violation of the law as “Public park land is “prohibited by law” from being turned over to a non-governmental private entity for private use.”
On Monday Public Park Activists filed a federal lawsuit against The Obama Presidential Center for their bait and switch tactic.
“Juanita Irizarry, executive director Friends of the Parks, also released a statement, saying officials with the group welcome the Obama Center to the South Side “but disagree with the choice to locate it on public parkland rather than vacant land across the street from Washington Park.”
While a mayoral spokesman believes otherwise.
“The Obama Presidential Center is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest hundreds of millions of dollars that will create good jobs on the South Side, bring our communities together and honor the legacy of Chicago’s favorite son and daughter. While some choose to stand in the way of progress for the South Side, we are focused on making progress in every community in Chicago,” mayoral spokesman Grant Klinzman said.”
What? An Obama organization trying to bend the rules say it ain’t so…
