Laski loses his police bodyguards. Here's a question for all you connected people - is four bodyguards a lot? We mean, how many does everyone have? Four for a Clerk seems excessive, but we don't know. What really ticks us off about this story is the following passage:
- "He's not Joey the Clown [Lombardo]. He's not going to take off. That surprised and shocked him," said a Laski confidant, who asked to remain anonymous.
We know Laski isn't Lombardo - Laski is worse. At least when you look at Lombardo, you have an idea what he's about. You don't go to "the Clown" expecting a certain amount of honesty. He's a vicious human being. Laski on the other hand, is an elected official. You expect a certain amount of honesty. Granted, in Chicago, it's a tiny little microscopic amount of honesty, but it's more than Lombardo would have. Especially when you run as the "anti" corruption guy. Because you destroy people's faith in the system. We hope Laski gets the "Quarters" Boyle treatment.
