UPDATED (9:15 p.m.): Here is Clark's response, via text message to the Chicago Sun Times:
"People know who I am and what I stand for and if the city wants to play hardball because I had bad tenants, then that's fine. I've been trying to help them help me for the last year and a half to get the bad tenants out.
"Does any(one) think I want that going on in one of my many rental properties?
Rodriguez said he and Clark have had phone conversations and that Clark agreed that the property is a problem.
But on Jan. 15, after seeing no progress, the City’s Nuisance Abatement Board decided to shutter up the rental property, meaning Clark and his landlord brother, Ralph Wilson, lose ownership rights for a year.
Here’s hoping Clark isn’t counting on those rental fees in lieu of a lockout. Because he’s not going to be making any money on it for 2011.
