Jody Weiss Supporting Sen. Obama on Taxpayer Time

Frank Main and Fran Spielman 31 October 2008 No Comment

A Chicago alderman wants police Supt. Jody Weis to be disciplined for making a statement in a TV interview earlier this month that seemed to support Barack Obama’s candidacy.

On Oct. 15, Weis was interviewed as part of a WLS-Channel 7 story on security at Obama’s South Side home. “He’s our senator and he’s hopefully going to be our next president, so it’s an honor to serve and protect his home,” said Weis, who was wearing his dark blue police uniform.

After Weis was notified that he may have violated a police rule with his statement to Channel 7, he notified the Independent Police Review Authority — the agency that handles complaints of police misconduct.
