Clinton backs Emanuel

The  Hill - Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton says she still has confidence in Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, amid controversy surrounding the delayed release of a video that showed Chicago police shooting a black teenager last year.

 “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,” she told reporters Friday in Iowa, according to Bloomberg.

Emanuel penned an op-ed Friday contesting the idea that the video showing the killing of Laquan McDonald by police was withheld because of his election.

Emanuel finished first in a general election for the Chicago mayorship in February. Because he didn't reach 50 percent support, the city held a runoff in April, which Emanuel won.

Had the video been shown at the time of the killing of the victim, the immediate affect would more than likely been that Rahm the Damned Emanuel the Enamel who have been soundly defeated. would ultimately the only beneficiary of delaying the the killing is Rahma Damma Ding Dong
