    “Hold my coat the Governor wants a picture with me”


  2. - Former Downstater - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:09 pm:

    The amount of tax dollars wasted by elected officials on “security” is staggering.


  3. - Joe Bloe - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:15 pm:

    Supermayor enroute to Supermax.


  4. - Route 50 Corridor - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:17 pm:

    In a text back to the former Governor, “Rod I don’t really think I can use the ‘testicular fortitude’ line, like you did, but thanks for the tip.”


  5. - will county - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:18 pm:

    That SUV was parked in a no-parking zone right in front of the Attorney General’s Office. Guess she can do whatever she wants!! Maybe the 3 City of Springfield and Capital Police could have made it move?

    To the caption “A $90,000 vehicle bought to you by the taxpayers.”


  6. - Pot calling kettle - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:25 pm:

    Why aren’t there any handles on the inside of these doors?


  7. - New Day - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:29 pm:

    She showed up on the brand spanking new SUV with police lights flashing and a security detail. She’s mayor of freakin’ Dolton. Can the Feds get on with it already.


  8. - Long time Independent - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:29 pm:

    Better talk to her like your talking to the Feds directly


  9. - Roadrager - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:35 pm:

    “Don’t forget to Like and Subscribe and leave the non-sequential bills in an unmarked envelope.”


  10. - twowaystreet - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:37 pm:

    Dolton Mayor pushes hard against bill to limit campaign money from being used for legal issues.

    =She showed up on the brand spanking new SUV with police lights flashing and a security detail. She’s mayor of freakin’ Dolton. Can the Feds get on with it already.=

    I mean seriously.

    I remember convicted felon and former Cicero mayor and felon Betty Loren-Maltese being driven around by a security detail just like this.

    Caption…”Self possessed mayor getting used to the back of a police car”


  12. - Vader - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:52 pm:

    I don’t understand why she hasn’t been indicted yet. She blatantly uses taxpayer money for her own purposes and uses the police to strong arm donations


  13. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 1:58 pm:

    Cmon lady, outta the car, we are repossessing it because Dalton hasn’t paid the lease for the past 6 months.


  14. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:00 pm:

    I need a chauffeur because they allow me to get work done while being driven around. It’s a better use of my time.


  15. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:02 pm:

    Gimme a minute, I got a $10 in my wallet somewhere.


  16. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:03 pm:

    Where’s the step stool? This thing is so high I need a step stoop to get out.


  17. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:05 pm:

    Can I shut the door? Traffic is backing up down the street.


  18. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:06 pm:

    Come on lady, in or out. Make up your mind.


  19. - Tear One - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:15 pm:

    The latest in a long line of trips from the Statehouse to the Big House.


  20. - Homebody - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:22 pm:

    I’m with Former Downstater on this one. Random mayors don’t need security on the public dime.


  21. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:23 pm:

    - Ma’am, the protectee is never allowed to sit directly behind the driver. That’s a regulation. Nobody does it. Not the president, not anybody.

    - The sun will be on that side, and I do not want the sun.

    - Perhaps you could sit on the proper side but slightly then to the middle.

    - Nope.

    - Ma’am, excuse me… but we are not leaving this house until you are seated properly…

  22. - Huh? - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:25 pm:

    Tiffany Henyard isn’t some “random mayor”, she is the mayor of Dalton and the Thornton Township supervisor. /s


  23. - cover - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:39 pm:

    Can the General Assembly finally look at abolishing township government in Illinois?


  24. - The Magnificent Purple Walnut - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:51 pm:

    Joe Bloe for the win.


  25. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 2:53 pm:

    “Perhaps a quick shoe shine before I get out”


  26. - Former Downstater - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 3:13 pm:

    Homebody, it’s not just random mayors. How many Chicago alders still have drivers? Check out the current MWRD President’s entourage.


  27. - Just a guy - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 3:30 pm:

    “Who am I meeting with now, and did they put all of the unmarked bills in manila envelopes like I instructed them to?”


  28. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 3:37 pm:

    “Tuck your shirt in, don’t you know who your passenger is?”


  29. - Red Ranger - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 4:18 pm:

    Yes Mayor it will be the same procedure when we pull up to the Dirksen building, so this is good practice.


  30. - Pot calling kettle - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 4:19 pm:

    Who wants to give me a “gratuity”? Those are legal, right?


  31. - Rudy’s teeth - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 4:24 pm:

    Is Mayor Henyard waiting for her driver to lay down the red carpet?


  32. - OneMan - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 4:44 pm:

    The Mayor pauses after hearing that there is no state grant program to put government officials’ photos on every surface in a town.


  33. - Eddy - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 5:47 pm:

    Harvey used to have a Mayor like that. So sad


  34. - Rudy’s teeth - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 6:04 pm:

    At least, Mayor Henyard’s driver is not wearing a chauffeur’s uniform for the trip to Springfield.


  35. - Proud Sucker - Wednesday, Apr 17, 24 @ 10:35 pm:

    She also stopped by the IML reception at ALPML with the same Entourage.
