Embattled former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s potential appointment as head of the Department of Transportation is ruffling some feathers, but Emanuel promises if appointed he won’t cover up many murders.

“If I’m lucky enough to be selected for the position, I will do everything in my power to be transparent about who we kill,” Emanuel said. “I’ve learned from my mistakes. If as transportation secretary, my department murders some people, I will only cover up a few, if any.”

Most of the other potential nominees Biden is considering have not covered up many murders.
