RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven

RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven
I have written extensively about why I felt the RJ Vanecko Case involved official misconduct and/or malfeasance by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and that the Chicago Police Department engaged in perpetrating a coverup in order to protect the Daley Family name in the minutes and hours after Richard “RJ” Vanecko fatally struck David...

Ambrosio Medrano Gets 10-1/2 Years In The Pen

Ambrosio Medrano Gets 10-1/2 Years In The Pen
Former Chicago Alderman Ambrosio Medrano gets 10-1/2 years in the pen and so far as I am concerned he deserves each and every minute of that sentence. Why? Because he was convicted once before for political corruption in Operation Silver Shovel some twenty years earlier. Matter of fact this sentence is more than just when... Read more »

$1 Million Question Was The Bobby Rush SBC/AT&T Grant A Quid Pro Quo?
Bobby Rush isn’t exactly sure how a million dollars was used for his Bobby L. Rush Center for Community Technology project. According to the Chicago Sun-Times: “That was many years ago,” Rush said. “I have no answer for that. I have no way of knowing that.” So I guess the only logical thing to do... Read more »

Joe Berrios Is Da Boss!

Joe Berrios Is Da Boss!
I guess some people this week learned something I had long known – in Cook County Joe Berrios Is Da Boss! Ahh Good Ol’ Joe Berrios, that unapologetic King of Nepotism who once compared himself to being an equal of the Kennedy Family. Well maybe he is if you consider that the Kennedy wealth was...

Toni Preckwinkle The Queen of Non-Reform Reformers
When Toni Preckwinkle ousted Todd Stroger as Cook County Board President she immediately declared “this victory belongs to the people of Cook County.” and that the hopes of county residents have often been tempered by cynicism, “but not this time!” “Their message is clear.

Chicago Alderman Joe Moore The Non-Reform Reformer

Chicago Alderman Joe Moore The Non-Reform Reformer
Apparently Chicago Alderman Joe Moore is the non-reform reformer after a Rogers Park Ward Office worker reported to him via email that she saw an intern labeling political fliers in the alderman’s taxpayer-funded office and told him “You don’t need a scandal over something so completely avoidable!” Ironically the one thing that was more than...

Illinois Passes Cigarette Butt Law

Illinois Passes Cigarette Butt Law
I should have guessed that before former Chicago Alderman Richard “Dick” Mell engineered his blatant act of Chicago Nepotism that his Uber Liberal daughter Deborah Mell would sponsor a bill (HB3243) that will ultimately be largely ignored by law enforcement, except maybe by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. As for the rest of the state’s law... Read more »

Gompers Park Speed Cameras Are A Scam

Did Richard Mell Violate Lobbyist Laws?

Did Richard Mell Violate Lobbyist Laws?
Former Chicago 33rd Ward Alderman Richard Mell might just love the action a bit too much as his seat wasn’t officially warmed yet by his daughter, Deborah Mell before maybe getting an early jump on his lobbying career. Problem is, Richard Mell has no credentials as of yet to do so. So the big question... Read more »
