A Chicago teacher on strike boasting a placard reading “RAHM EMANUEL LIKES NICKELBACK” caused a bit of a stir this week, at least enough to garner a clarification from the Mayor’s office. Via NPR, relief for all Chicagoans:
The mayor’s spokesperson responded with one word when the Chicago Redeye asked if Emanuel liked Nickelback: “No.”
The smack-talking teacher has been identified as well:
Mike Konkoleski, a 10th grade math teacher at Eric Solorio Academy High School, was identified as the man behind the audacious assault on Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel’s character in the form of a protest sign declaring Emanuel a fan of Nickelback.
