Favors Outlive the Giver?

No wonder no new blood can get ahead in this city.
  • Chicagoans long have known that they may vote from the great hereafter. Similarly, a political campaign worker aced a city job interview a few years back, even though he had died a few days earlier.

    And Mayor Richard Daley's swelling re-election campaign fund now has received money that originally was donated for the political account of Democratic powerbroker George Dunne. The late George Dunne.
    On Monday, almost nine months after Dunne's passing, the Daley campaign reported receiving a $10,000 contribution from the George W. Dunne Campaign Fund.
    Since Dunne died, other beneficiaries of the fund have included Todd Stroger's successful bid for Cook County Board president ($5,000); losing Democratic congressional candidates Dan Seals and Tammy Duckworth ($1,000 each); the International Ministry in Chicago ($10,000); and the University of St. Mary's of the Lake in Mundelein ($3,000).
So whomever is controlling the estate of the late George Dunne is able to make contributions in his name to politicians and get favors on behalf of an entire new generation of politicos? One wonders if this is all the graft money stashed away in various safety deposit boxes and under mattresses that was collected over the decades.

Yeah, George Dunne occasionally had some strange ways of "gettin his jollys". That didn't make him a bad guy. The stuff about the snuff films was never proven. What ever happened to inocent until pproven guilty?

I think that George banging a copper was the least of that old coots indescretions. Daley is probably jealous.
