Susana Mendoza has no shame.

This election day morning she blasted out, by email and social media, information about her Comptroller’s office releasing funds for veterans’ homes in Chicago (where she is in the mayoral election) and elsewhere.

Here’s a snippet from her press release, which she is also has on Twitter.

Comptroller and mayoral wannabe Susana Mendoza

She has in fact done nothing beyond her routine clerical role as Comptroller, which is to write the checks.

As the Beachwood Reporter put it on Twitter this morning, it’s as if the Comptroller’s office is also announcing release of funds to buy you a free donut and cup of coffee on your way to the polls today.

Her full press release is linked here.

Mendoza strikes me as a person who could not function outside machine politics. Could you see her performing actual Accounting functions like interpreting GASB? Does she know what an encumbrance is? Could see balance a single journal entry or read a trial balance? If it wasn’t for machine politics, Mendoza would be working as an office manager for some local union.

I think we have another movie reference: Mendoza is Brooks Hatlen from Shawshank Redemption, the lifetime convict who couldn’t function outside the prison walls and, shortly after his release, hung himself. Although Brooks was infinitely more likable.

She can sign all Comptroller documents as “BROOKS WAS HERE”
