BREAKING: As Sharpton Calls For Emanuel’s Head, Clinton Stands By Embattled Mayor
This morning, longtime civil rights activist Al Sharpton called for embattled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign, “I think the people have to make that decision, but certainly from where I sit, he should.”
This comes after another weekend filled with protests calling for Mayor Emanuel to resign.
While Al Sharpton stands with the 82% of Chicagoans that no longer support Emanuel, Chicago native and Democratic Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is standing by her longtime friend and ally Mayor Emanuel.
Her last public statement on Emanuel came in early December when she expressed her “confidence” in him to Bloomberg News, saying, “He loves Chicago and I’m confident that he’s going to do everything he can to get to the bottom of these issues and take whatever measures are necessary to remedy them.”
