Chicago Teachers Union Prez, Who Rails Against 'The Rich,' Owns Three Homes -- Including One In Hawaii

Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis is known for being a socialist who rails against the rich.

Lewis joined the "occupy" movement when it was in full bloom.

Now she's running for mayor against Rahm Emanuel, and leads according to a poll.

The Chicago Sun-Times is already having some fun reporting on what is sure to be one of the most ridiculous races in America.

She has ripped Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a tool of corporate Chicago, labeled him “Mayor 1%” and described herself as “not egotistical or rich.”

Lewis isn’t as wealthy as Emanuel, a multimillionaire who made his fortune during a short stint as an investment banker. But she makes more than $200,000 a year and has an ownership interest in three homes, records show.

That includes vacation homes in Hawaii and in the upscale “Harbor Country” area of southwestern Michigan, where Emanuel has a second home, property records show.

Not bad for a humble teacher. And right in line with a greedy union boss.

This race will pit two rich people who claim to be champions of the people, but who live off the people while subjecting the people to crushing yet incompetent big government, against each other.

It's going to be quite a show.
