Crook County Outrage

  • State Sen. Rickey Hendon (D-Chicago) admits he has no background in health care.

    But that didn't stop him from signing a $24,900 contract last year to work as a health care consultant to Cook County government.

    He signed another $24,900 contract weeks later to advise the county on attracting revenue-generating festivals and serve as a liaison between state and county officials.

This 3 month contract (and numerous others) fell under the $25,000 threshold that necessitates full Board approval. Funny how it just happened to fall under by a hundred bucks, eh? Acting President Bobbie Steele managed to hand out at least 6 of these contracts and looks to have facilitated the hiring back of certain connected retirees at wildly inflated salaries - something that we've heard the CPD is doing with certain exempt spots to get around the mandatory age limit.

Got to love those thieves on the Book County Board. Bobbie Steele (or Steal) learned well from Stroger and company - tell us again how Urkel won this thing?

I always hated City Government, but Cook Co. is on a whole other level.

I'm so far beyond disgusted that I've actually become numb to the corruption. Just like they wanted me to...

In case anyone is interested, the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that both Medrano and Virgil Jones are disqualified from running in their particular races and must be removed from the ballot due to their felony convictions.

I love it when a plan comes together. . .

Made me sick to read that today. Steele is as big a crook as they come. Shame on Hendon. Although Steele is gone, Hendon should lose big time when his re-election comes around. Unbelievable!!

Actually the book on thieving in the Cook County system was written long before the arrival of Steele or Stroger for that matter. Does the name George Dunne ring any bells?

How long do you think that little loop hole Steele drove a truck through has been on the books?

Here's another good one: To quell the militants led by Vicelord frontman Ricky Hendon in the midst of the protests over Bethany Hospital's closure, Advocate Healthcare CEO Bruce Carlson got strongarmed by Hendon and Bobby Steele to the tune of one million dollars a year for fourteen years! I'm going to personally write Mr. Carlson. Think about that one when you get your bills fron Lutheran General, or Christ Hospital. I think he's a Minnesotan unfamiliar with black extortionists, or big city Democrats. But I'm not. We saw the same shit with Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson on the Westside in the Sixties.

And as always, just answer the radio and do nothing else. And remember, if you see Tyreese following you into your garage when you go home use all sixteen rounds or I'm gonna kick your ass after the round table!

Just keep voting dummycratic lemmings. I'm sure at least 90% of the people with the pink slips voted for Urkel. The sad thing is they will vote for him next time. Wake up. This guy couldn't run a washing machine by himself and he is running this County.

I wanna slap that stupid, arrogant "f*ck you" smile off his face he has all the time.

This is like the guy who walks into a large jewelery store and applies for a job as a watch maker.

How much experience do you have?

None.

It says here that you expect $1,000.00 a week and we pay our best most experienced watchmaker $250.00 a week! How could you expect so much?

The job is so much harder when you don't know what you are doing.

This county and city sickens me with the continuous blatant corruption. I hate to sound dismal, but there doesn't seem an end to it and it is almost looks like it is the normal way to do business, at least in crook co.

The real sad part is we hear about all this continuous bul$hit going on and people continue to vote these a$$holes in to run the "government". I think all politicians are in it for power and money, nothing else.

The anti-CPD Cook County Sheriff fired CCSPD Chief of Patrol and former CPD ADS Tom Folliard Friday. Anyone involved in a shooting wanted Tom as the street Deputy, knows what he's doing and for the street cop.

The real question would be how much of that $24900.00 did Hendon kick back to Steal?(oops! I meant Steele.)We are so doomed. I am looking for retirement property outside this shit hole of a state.

It's really sad to see comments on here that say Bobbie Steele and Ricky Hendon are only doing what others have done in the past...that is steal from the taxpayers...and for that reason it's ok. It's not ok that this pair of thieves hold or ever held public office.

Are you saying Dart is anti-CPD?
He was a former ASA. Why do these guys hate cops? Is it out of envy or spite?

Division always solves problems.

This can only backfire. In the end he will be voted out of office, and all these hacks will be sent home. If Stroger tried to run a uncorrupt (not as noticed ) govt he could be in office for a long time as his father. He's fucking it up. That's the problem.

Anyone know someone suspended for a year and was able to come back as a LT?

Sheriff Tom Dart forgot where he came from. He's firing CPD guys en masse. To be honest the, sheriff's guys applaud the move because they have always resented hiring CPD guys, especially to exempt positions. (And realisitcally, who could blame them?) They have a term for it..ABC...Anybody but Chicago!


Dart has "suspended" all investigations in illegal slots, gee, I wonder why?

Crook County, nothing changes.

Keep voting democRAT
