A reader sends in the following info:
"Pretty sure you've already spotted this since it hit the Sun-Times but a resident of Cornerstone homeless shelter on Clifton was very busy this fall gathering signatures for Rev Meeks and Rahm Emanuel's tenant to run for Mayor.
The Sun-Times article says he collected over 7000 total signatures. Based on personal experience, paid petition seekers can get paid from $1 to $3 for each valid signature gathered for a candidate. The guy probably had a pretty nice payday. Shockingly, Cornerstone hasn't seen Mr. Arthur Hardy, Jr since before Thanksgiving which is about the same time he probably got paid.
Worse for Uptown, this guy is a repeated convict, and a non-compliant registered sex offender according to the Tribune.
I hope you can run this asap with a request for any readers who spot him to call 911, as a non-compliant sex offender he would be picked up by CPD for arrest and a probation or registration hold immediately.
Would be nice if Cornerstone got their act together enough to not let registered sex offenders stay at their facilities across from Truman's Day Care, or down the block from their own shelter for homeless families with kids."
