Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel apparently had more issues with fraud and cover-ups that went beyond the murder of Laquan McDonald. Grace Akinlemibola, a former Director of Strategic Affairs and Assistant to the Mayor for Mayor Rahm Emanuel, exposed fraud at Chicago Public Schools and in the City of Chicago. Akinlemibola exposed the discovered fraud internally while a member of Rahm Emanuel's staff, but was shocked to find that she was then excluded from conversations and deliberations even though she had personal knowledge of incidents surrounding the fraud. Instead, she found her reputation beginning to be maligned to the point of removing all career prosperity. Akinlemibola left the Mayor's Office in October of 2016 and continued to be targeted by corrupt elected and government officials. Akinlemibola additionally recently published emails with national and local media organizations in the United States that showcase the media's blatant collusion with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in covering up the fraud at Chicago Public Schools, Akinlemibola's Anti-Corruption Lawsuits, and more. The emails and Anti-Corruption court documents can be found on Akinlemibola's website at Akinlemibola had previously filed Anti-Corruption Lawsuits in 2017 that assert fraud at Chicago Public Schools that was discovered while she was a staff member in Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office.

According to court documents she filed upon leaving Emanuel's office, Akinlemibola initially disclosed the fraud internally to Emanuel advisors and other staff members. Akinlemibola provided preliminary disclosure that she found was already discovered secretly by Emanuel's senior advisor, who was then taking measures behind closed doors to "frame her" for the fraud, including damaging her reputation prior to the conveyance. According to both court documents and tweets from Akinlemibola's Twitter profile, Emanuel then chose to malign her prosperity instead of cleaning up the fraud at Chicago Public Schools. After Akinlemibola disclosed the fraud internally and asserted she had nothing to do with the fraud that took place while she was a Budget Analyst at Chicago Public Schools, Emanuel shut her out of discussions and never asked her about details of what occurred while at the same time only receiving information from the accused former CPS Chief Financial Officer, Ginger Ostro. Ostro was asserted by Akinlemibola as the individual who committed the fraud at Chicago Public Schools that led to a disastrous closing of 50 Chicago schools. Emanuel then circumvented all discussions with Akinlemibola and began maligning Akinlemibola's reputation and career prosperity behind closed doors. Emanuel later found ways to damage her business prosperity and career reputation. The denigration led to Akinlemibola later pursuing Anti-Corruption Lawsuits against corrupt elected, government officials, Chicago-Kent Law School faculty, and even other private entities who began bowing down to corruption. The events in the suits surround collusion in fraud perpetrated against Akinlemibola. From stealing her vehicle, fraudulently withholding her license to practice law and her Certified Public Accountant license, attempting to provide barriers to her business and ministry, and removing police protection when she had multiple death attempts made against her, the assertions were not to be taken lightly.

Akinlemibola sent multiple press releases to over 3,000 members of the United States media and press beginning from January 2017, when the first five lawsuits were filed, and including additional releases upon further happenings later in the year and afterwards. None of them made a move and many, including the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times then made apparent moves to provide additional support for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who has assertive ties and strong relationships with both local and national media organizations. The media stayed silent while aggressions continued to rail against her. Akinlemibola is now homeless. Akinlemibola lashed out at fraudulent media and press members in an email she made public with regarded intentions of including the email as a part of a human rights complaint to the United Nations against the United States of America. Chicago Public Schools also never responded to Akinlemibola's assertions of fraud within the organization.

Considering Chicago Public Schools has been reknown for having budgetary issues and never closing the gap, fraud within the organization that has never been rectified could be a good identification of an organization with more fundamental and structural problems. Akinlemibola also noted pointing out technological issues that would viably lead to more fundamental damage in decision-making and manipulation if not rectified. Akinlemibola notes the excess internal reorganizations and high turnover within CPS asserted by many Chief officers within the organization as a circumstance that exacerbates these technological issues to the point of gruesomely misconstruing budgets. As a Budget Analyst, her forthrightness and investigatory practices found double-counting of over $1 million for a department's budget. She found that if the Budget Analyst or the Director of a department did not note the various structural changes within the financial system, it would translate to budgets that were never accurate. "Historical information, such as prior month or year expenses, and fundamental programmatic inclusions can be lost with an Analyst or Director who did not have knowledge of the piecemealing of the various departments," Akinlemibola says. "This is important because management decisions are made on the premise that the budgets are correct and are an accurate reflection of a department's financial objectives. The problem with CPS is that there is also high turnover: the entire budget office had complete turnover prior to my joining with the exception of a few; Ostro was also new at the time; many of the Directors were there for perhaps a year or two before leaving, if that. There were analysts who had no idea what kind of programs were coming out of their budgets. I was different. I always had cleanliness."
