Skip to comments.Meet Valerie Jarrett, One of Chicago’s Biggest Slum Lords; Profited from Ghetto-Property Scheme..
Posted on 06/02/2018 6:03:47 AM PDT by bitt
The squat brick buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who cant afford to live anywhere else.
But its not safe to live here.
About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.
Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obamas presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee. Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.

but it's the good intentions that matter, so leftards get a pass
More background, on VJ....
If I recall correctly, she bought the housing projects with the hopes of Obama landing the Olympics for Chicago so she could then turn around and sell them for a huge profit.
More info, 9 pages:
Rosanne made her pop her head up out of her hole. Good job Rosanne. Let’s see if the media continues a ten year backlog avalanche of Valerie Jarrett news we never got to hear or see?
Vicious vizier of the Obama caliphate (2008-2015) in North America.
Good intentions? Don’t you mean, saying she had good intentions?
That sounds about right. It would explain not investing in fixing up the slum projects, if the goal was that they would be torn down. Obama and his friends are corrupt scum.
Interesting read about VJ:
She is pure evil, along with the rest of the 0bama caliphate. Gitmo is too good for them.
with the hopes of Obama landing the Olympics for Chicago so she could then turn around and sell them for a huge profit.
= = = = = = = = = = = =
Apparently, there was a whole lot of positioning and buying in anticipation of BO and HARPO landing the Olympics.
I (Quietly) made a prediction neither would see the calendar turn over a leaf after blowing that deal.
He must have been more powerful than the ‘Chicago Machine’ even though they put him in power.
When people ‘ask’ who is Valerie Jarrett I tell them she is the woman (whose hands you can’t see) standing behind BO trying not to move her lips when he was ‘speaking’.
He must have a nuclear crater for an arsehole as she could keep her hand up there while his was/is firmly lodged there also.
It seems like everything the Dems do, they say they do with good intentions. Yet, hasn’t it been said for generations that “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”?
Grove Parc plaza was to be husseins jumping off point of birth to death government funded entitlements, government funded socialism with the $$$ from the city of Chicago as the starting point.
Of course hussein and company would act as the middlemen in this socialism scheme.
$1 for you $2 for me, 1 for you 2 for me...
There were no good intentions involved here it was a money making scheme for jarrett, hussein and the rest of their grifter crew...just like everything else they were involved in.
Welfare people and good intentioned civilian idiot leftists were their tool....like putty in their hands/
Taxpayers and their $$$ were the mark.
This was my initial thought too. Valjar is slimy and likes to stay in the dark seedy background of leftist politics but she is one of the most powerful members of their cabal of destruction.
I too hope the light gets brighter and brighter on her. Cockroaches hate the light.
It has been my personal experience that people will trash their own property when it is government subsidized. I used to go with my father when he had to snake-out sewer drains in Detroit in the early 1970’s. They would actually attempt to flush T-bone Steak bones down the toilet. Unbelievable.
