True. But it has nothing to do with Mother Nature. Patrick Fitzgerald might say it’s a free Blago walking the streets. And the WH will definitely say it’s Blago’s repeated mentioning (during his most recent media blitz) of his dealings with Rahm Emanuel re: barry senate seat.
How many disaster declarations has barry made since he entered office?
WH: The President today declared a major disaster exists in the State of Illinois and ordered Federal aid to supplement State and local recovery efforts in the area struck by severe storms and flooding during the period of July 22 to August 7, 2010.
The President’s action makes Federal funding available to affected individuals in the counties of Carroll, Cook, DuPage, Jo Daviess, Ogle, Stephenson, and Winnebago.
Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.
