Activists have effectively sued on Monday in federal court to postpone the construction of Hussain Obama’s Presidential Library.
Protect our Parks LLC accused organizers of an institutional Bait and Switch by advertising the center as Hussain’s official Library.
In August 2016, the City and the Park District publically announced that the Hussain Presidential Library, promised to include all of the former President’s official records, would be built in Jackson Park,” “Then, in May 2017, after the Defendants’ public announcement that a true ‘Presidential Library’ would be built, the Obamas did an about-face on their commitment to a Presidential Library.”
The Lawsuit Filed in the US District Court of Northern Illinois claims that the transfer of public parklands to a private entity violates the park district code.
The Lawsuit reads “Defendants have chosen to deal with it in a classic Chicago political way, known as a short con shell game, a corrupt scheme to deceive and seemingly legitimize an illegal land grab, one that will endure for centuries to come, regardless of future changing public park needs and increasingly consequential environmental conditions,”
