419 E. 83rd Condemned -Safety or Politics

This is 419 E. 83rd Street an eyesore old abandoned gas station that has been discussed on this blog and The Sixth Ward Blog numerous times. Well it appears that after 30 years in this state of disrepair and complaints to two alderman the building has been condemed. The question is was it done for safety or politics. Back in January the Goodrum -Burton camp decided that they would give it a makeover. They plastered it with posters to create wallpaper.

They posted on the property as well as on the adjacent utility poles. Also, several other candidates used it post campaign literature. Was it condemned to keep the opponent from using it?
