    IIRC he needed to get into next April for his full pension. There has been a lot of talk in recent days of another scandal that was going to swing the axe sooner than anticipated. I believe it was over kickbacks from uniform companies

    Now, does Eddie have a drinking problem, did that have anything to do with his kidney failure and was he trying to avoid admitting to that? Probably....but that could be dealt with in a "run out the clock" situation if Mayor Lightfoot had wanted to. Apparently she didn't and there has to be a reason for that.
    Did that change since the retirement announcement?

    I don't think so. What apparently has changed is additional evidence about the incident which allows the mayor cover for an immediate firing.

    Now, this could all be legit....but why would I assume that, given the players?

    Yes. LL said he had to go for "misleading the public..." about the sleeping/passed out in the car incident. By that standard, shouldn't they all resign? Or is it only if you get caught and can't wiggle out of it?

    I'll never understand why an adult, especially a police officer, wouldn't just call for a ride. It's not like anyone would likely tow that car if it was left overnight

    As CPD Supt he had a . driver. I think I read he dismissed the driver earlier in the evening to drive himself home...

    Reports that he was drinking with a woman in the vehicle. This changes nothing for me. I believe this was the info which allowed her to fire him before his retirement. However, if she wasn't looking to use this firing politically, it did not have to happen this way. It's not about whether Eddie Johnson did things he should not have. It's about Lori Lightfoot appeasing some groups, and Eddie gave her the opportunity.
