Yes, you saw that profanity altered with a $ sign. What other character would you use when it involves Tax Payer Money being paid to Michael Madigan's son-in-law yet again? While others have tagged Michael Madigan with cute nicknames, I choose to call an ace an ace, he is a slimy slippery politician that manipulates the system for his personal, and our family gain. There are many appropriate profanities that can be used to describe him, but I think he already knows what he is and laughs all the way to the bank impervious to popular opinion. Michael Madigan has wreaked havoc on the State of Illinois for 26 years as Speaker of the House. In all, he has been a thorn in the side of Illinois Tax payers since 1971, and if there were ever a poster child for term limits, this sucker would be it. Still And I have to ask Is Madigan Fu$king Taxpayers Again?
People have called Michael Madigan the il Capo di Tutti Capi of Illinois Politics. Most everyone is aware that not a single piece of legislation goes anywhere without the express consent of Madigan and his Gang of Legislative Minions. Speaking of which, Jordan Matyas, Madigan's son-in-law, has often been described a prime Maddie Minion. Matyas has profited nicely as a lobbyist in Illinois and one of his better known works of art was when he was hired by Veritac Solutions to exploit a loophole in the state's Payday Lenders Law. Of course it couldn't have gone to a better guy since he helped draft the original payday-loan-tracking legislation while employed by Michael Madigan. To read more about this click here.
As I see it, Michael Madigan has tried to insure that his son-in-law Jordan Matyas sufficiently provides for his daughter Tiffany and as a result, has compelled him to assist in his career. The Chicago Sun-Times has reported that Jordan Matyas has now been hired by the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) as their top lobbyist. So effective March 1st, Matyas will oversee the agency's government affairs section at a comfortable $130,000 per year. I am reasonably sure that position will include the customary contributions to his government pension(s) and other perks that the taxpayers, are in effect, paying.
Of course the RTA and Madigan spokesman Steve Brown defended the hiring and said he went through the normal hiring process. Hmm, well I really doubt that line of bullshit. First of all, nothing that Madigan has done for Matyas, at least in my opinion, has come on the pure up and up. The fact that Madigan's step daughter, and Matyas' sister-in-law, is Lisa Madigan the State's Attorney General it would be safe to say that any calls for an investigation would be ignored. Just as was done in the Veritac Solutions / Payday Loan conflict of interest deal.
Steve Brown also chalked up any cries of impropriety as: "Ramey's insults are typical of the Republicans. Just like the insults from billboards and other things, typical Republicans. It's why they're the minority party more than anything else."
What an arrogant shit don't you think? But then again, who butters this numb-nuts bread anyhow. Typical Maddy mouthpiece.
The RTA is one of the most fu$ked-up agency's in the state. A patronage repository generally asleep at the wheel until thieves like Philip Pagano step out in front of one of their own Metra Trains after the shit hits the fan. I suppose we should be happy that Pagano carried Metra's policy handbook on him on how to handle suicides by train.
I don't know about you, but I sure am tired of Michael Madigan and all his Minions.
Too bad we also have Lisa "Do Nuthin' To My Papa" Madigan protecting the enterprise.
Then again, that is just my opinion. What's Yours?
