Alderman Deborah Graham
When 29th ward Alderman Deborah Graham walked into a political forum held Sunday, January 25, 2015 she was under the impression she was entering an unbiased, fair, and equal platform. To her surprise she was overtaken by implanted agitators in the audience. She walked straight into a surprised attack organized by members of the West Side NAACP and some West Side of Chicago pastors.
Just days before the political forum held by the West Side NAACP, some of it's members organized a secret meeting for her main opponent Chris Taliaferro at the exact location the political forum would take place. The secret meeting invited Austin pastors along with a few community leaders to hatch a plan to disgrace the Alderman at the upcoming forum which was taped for CANTV.

The question becomes was the host of the political forum in on this as well? Why would the West Side NAACP meet with the opponent of the incumbent only days before the political forum? Should that forum be viewed as a setup, illegitimate, biased, and bogus?
"...that would constitute cheating!"
"Makes one wonder if Chris Taliaferro
had a heads-up on the questions?"
The purpose of that political forum was to aggravate, frustrate, and make Alderman Deborah Graham appear incompetent. Disingenuous and a disgrace to openness and the public trust, skulduggery at best! Click below link to better understand the environment Alderman Graham walked into at the political forum.

In response to this blog post you'll see the sentiments of Rev. Ira Acree below. I guess he and others have no problems organizing pastors and community leaders at his church for a particular candidate, prepping him, and creating a political forum in his favor? At the end of the day the above forum was tainted, compromised, and down right illegal! Hopefully the next forum will be fair and balanced because the last one was clearly a setup! Jim Allen.
