How to Clean Up City Hiring?

  • After the guilty verdicts for the mayor's former patronage chief Robert Sorich and three colleagues, pundits are weighing in, analysts are holding forth, and questions abound.
We've got a quick answer for that one - there won't be any hiring reform while this political administration remains in place. Our only hope is regime change. And then there is this little bit of speculation by the Sun Times:
  • Prosecutors are keeping mum, but the trial featured detail after detail about the alleged involvement of Sorich's boss in the case, Victor Reyes, who has refused to talk to investigators without a grant of immunity. Reyes has not been charged with any crime. His attorney, Thomas Breen, sat in on portions of the trial.
So who is the next to fall? We figured Reyes would be high on the list. Probably Degnan or another mayoral insider too. Anyone have any speculation? Maybe a name from the past - Teale perhaps? Hopefully, the judge and prosecutors can lean on people a little bit with the threat of a little more than 24 months - a few more years added on might loosen some tongues.

Talked about this with a family member yesterday. If its a lawyer who is refusing to cooperate with law enforcement, I honestly hope the ARDC would find that grounds for disbarment.

And if its a police officer who refuses to cooperate with law enforcement at any level, than I honestly hope he or she is fired.

I can't remember if Reyes is a lawyer, but Chico is.

No comments on a real problem with our city government because we are too busy talking trash about who's the baddest copper, or black and hispanic bootie. Those are the very important topics that appear on a daily basis. Meanwhile, the city keeps doing business as usual, and kicking us in the ass. Judging by the mentality of the majority of posters on this blog, we deserve every kick we get. What a bunch of idiots we are!
