Anita Alvarez: A Walking Contradiction

Anita Alvarez: A Walking Contradiction
Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, in my opinion, is a walking contradiction. So much so that I seriously doubt she can be trusted when it comes to protecting the rights of “everyday citizens.” If, however, you are connected to say, the former Chicago Mayor Richard M.

Occupy Movement Is Spreading While Chicago Initiates $125 City Protest Fee (Eh Fine)
The Occupy Wall Street Movement has blossomed and is now spreading to cities around the country.
