Speaking of Indictments ...

Seems the Feds are busy hoping to other "side" of the political fence in Illinois, even though we've stated many times that there is no real difference between Demopublicans and Republicrats in the great state of Illinois. Corruption is a full participation sport here. From the Sun Times:
  • Former Chicago Ald. Edward R. Vrdolyak, the charismatic bad boy of Chicago politics, is the target of a federal grand jury investigation, sources have told the Sun-Times.

    At least part of the probe is tied to his longtime friendship and business dealings with Stuart Levine, a GOP insider cooperating with the federal government in two high-profile investigations.

    Facing significant prison time, Levine decided in recent months to talk to investigators, sources say, and agreed to wear a wire. Sources would not say whether Levine recorded Vrdolyak, but they did say Levine has provided investigators with potentially incriminating information on Vrdolyak.

It looks like Fast Eddie is going to have to do some fast talking and figure out some new dance moves soon. If it's true there is no statute of limitations on Official Misconduct, maybe Eddie could be encouraged to drag up quite a few old names and inner workings of the original Machine. Eddie is the kind of guy who knows where a lot of bodies are buried, in the figurative sense of course.

It's about time. This guy has been tap dancing his whole life. I know that he has helped cops in lawsuits and won. So what. He has been a thief and a crook with a brief case since day one. He is living, breathing proof that legal ethics is an oxymoron.

Hopefully Burke is next!

Much of my book, "When Corruption Was King", was devoted to Ed Burke, Vrdolyak's "boss".

Cooley was a corrupt snake who the G had by the balls...all that stuff in his book about suddenly deciding to do the "right thing" is pure Bull shit. It was do the right thing or go directly to jail. He was and continues to be a bullshiting shitbird.

9:25 PM obviously has an ax to grind concerning the redemption of Robert Cooley. The Feds had absolutely nothing on Cooley.

We need more moles to put these filthy corrupt Chicago politicians behind bars.

Speaking of Cooley, what happened to his old college roommate Northside?
