The Clout List
Tribune has it up. Here's a link (you have to jack the magnifier up to 200% on Adobe Acrobat). All sorts of interesting stuff there. Let's try running a few random searches on the document:
- Search for "policeman" reveals only 3 entries - one for a Joseph Pizza who will soon be retiring; one for an Adam Zelitsky from 012 who wants to be transferred to the canine unit; one for a Robert Hartman who wants to be assigned to Corp Counsel.
- Search for "police" reveals 13 entries - some highlights include Chester Batey Jr promoted to Sergeant thanks to Rev. Clay Evans; Anthony Carothers, brother of aldercreature Carothers promoted to Detective; Kevin Gyrion wants a transfer OUT of Englewood to a Unit, specifically Narcotics; Daryn Brown was discharged from Police? Who knows what that was about?
These are only people who decided to use their political connections - this doesn't even touch the family tree of Department members. John Kass and the Tribune want readers to drop a dime on any names you recognize on the list or names that haven't made the list yet. There seem to be a few relatives of persons who met untimely ends in the trunks of cars according to Kass. And the complete list covers 59 pages. It certainly isn't the only list in existence. In fact, we had our own list in a thread titled "Who Made Who? Who Made You? (A/C D/C)" back in October. Anyone think the Trib is ripping us off?
