Rahm Emanuel Screws Voters Out Of A Referendum
Real Democrats aren’t afraid of leaving the vote up to the people. And that is why Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the other oligarchs will never be confused with being as such.

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 »

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 »

Greased Jackson Prison Sentences - Chicago Political Commentary
There is something terribly wrong with the criminal justice system. Especially when it comes to the sentences that corrupt politicians get versus the average citizen.

The infamous Mell fait accompli is complete as Jaime Andrade is sworn in as successor to Deb Mell’s state representative seat in the Illinois Legislature.

The details behind the METRA Scandal just keep coming out. And those details illustrate how the Chicago Democratic Machine continues to operate under the radar and how past assertions by political observers that machine politics were dead has been (to borrow a phrase) “greatly exaggerated” by them.
