New Top Cop's Fiancee Under Investigation For Alleged Police Exam Cheating

By Mark Konkol and Heather Cherone Updated April 5, 2016

THE LOOP — Mayor Rahm Emanuel's newly appointed top cop Eddie Johnson's fiancee is a Chicago Police lieutenant named in an ongoing investigation into alleged cheating on the department's lieutenant's exam, DNAinfo Chicago has learned.

It's the same cheating probe that sources said helped derail Deputy Chief Eugene Williams' chances of being promoted to police superintendent. Now the allegations are part of a separate probe, this one by Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson, sources said.

Williams, one of the Chicago Police Board's three superintendent finalists passed over by Emanuel, was a "senior subject matter expert" who helped create the most recent lieutenant's exam. And he was the "final reviewer of potential exam content, " according to the police department's Feb. 17 response to a Freedom of Information request obtained by DNAinfo Chicago.

The probe into the alleged cheating began in November 2014, more than nine months before the written portion of the lieutenant's exam was administered, after a police Internal Affairs investigator filed a complaint based on a tip from an anonymous officer.

That complaint questioned whether Williams shared "information that was privileged" about the exam to sergeants in a study group that met at police headquarters. The information would give the sergeants an unfair advantage on the test, according to a confidential police Internal Affairs report obtained by DNAinfo.

The study group included Johnson's fiancee, Lt. Nakia Fenner, as well as Lt. Maryet Hall, who is married to former First Deputy Police Supt. Al Wysinger, who retired in 2015, and Internal Affairs Lt. Davina Ward, multiple sources told DNAinfo Chicago.

In Chicago, getting caught cheating is both the mark of a pro (knowing how the system works) and an amateur (you idiot, you got caught!)

Wow, who needs affirmative action when you have people giving you the answers to tests and it is OKed by those at the top (until put under the microscope because it reflects worse on those even higher up the ladder).

If the world ever needs an enema, Chicago is where they’ll insert the probe. What a wasteland.

And the new chief is in top physical condition!

I would like to see him run the required mile and a half in 16:20. Better have an ambulance ready.

Many years ago while running the Chicago Marathon, I realized that the people were not actually waving at me, but the Chief of police, Joe DiLeonardi, running nearby.

“Hey, it’s Chicago.”

And hey, they’re Black! And FWIW, look at how the murder/shooting rates have “shot up” under this looser. Eddie Johnson got the job because of his skin color, not that he’s competent

This story has to be false. Police are beyond reproach and should never be questioned.
