Rahm Says STFU @MayorEmanuel
Candidate for Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, has pledged to donate at least $2,500 to charity if the writer behind the MayorEmanuel parody Twitter account reveals him or herself. During an interview on Tuesday, Emanuel said, “After the election, if that guy — or gal — comes forward I'll donate $2500 to the charity of his choice.” As of Tuesday, the Twitter account had 24,803 followers. In comparison, the actual Rahm Emanuel account has 7,221 followers. Asked whether he likes the fake twitter account, Emanuel digressed, noting the account's "huge following." The Mayor Emanuel account mocked Rahm’s charity offer yesterday afternoon.
