Emanuel on Rauner death penalty revival: “I’m speechless”

By Bill Cameron, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO)  Mayor Emanuel says he’s speechless about Governor Rauner’s desire to bring back the death penalty for mass murderers and cop killers.

Emanuel says Springfield stood strong when it repealed the death penalty and Rauner wanting to bring it back has this effect on him.

“Guys, I don’t even know how to respond to this. I’m speechless!”, he said in a classroom, literally, with a stopped clock, “On morning without speaking to anybody after the State of Illinois had a big discussion, led the country to ban the death penalty for a whole host of appropriate reasons, and then say here’s what I want without consulting or working with anybody.”

Translation? Rahm thinks Rauner’s move is pure politics.
