Fox Watches Henhouse

Where the hell is this judge from? Does he even read the filed briefs? We're going to quote the article out of order, just to demonstrate how soft this judge must be:
  • Following a rash of indictments and later convictions of top city officials for basing hirings and promotions on political considerations rather than job qualifications, Andersen appointed Noelle Brennan as an outside monitor to oversee hiring at the city.

    In her December report to the judge, Brennan called into serious question the city's ability to conduct its own investigation into hiring problems.

Brennan has already reported the City isn't following the rules set in place. In fact, they're backsliding at a pretty good clip. But the judge isn't going to let that stand in the way of anything:
  • U.S. District Judge Wayne Andersen bucked his own monitor Friday, agreeing to let Mayor Daley's administration create a new "Office of Compliance" to guard against patronage instead of letting the city inspector general handle it.
So once again, Hoffman loses out and Brennan is revealed as a toothless monitor. Expect more of the same old song and dance.

Mayor Shorty Long can not afford to have people like Grossman or Hodge out of the IG Office looking over his shoulder. I think they were placed there to keep them from doing their job, better still keep them from doing a job on city officials

A few questions whose answers may shed some light on the 'reasons' for this new development:

1 - Which political party is responsible for this judge's appointment?

2 - If the Democrats, then, is this decision meant to assist the Democratic machine to better enable the nomination of Obama?

3 - If the Republicans, then, is this decision meant to assist the Democratic machine to better enable the nomination of Obama OR to provide the proverbial, and apparently irresistible, 'rope to hang themselves with' to the Daley machine?

4 - Could this decision be seen as a means to keep the issue of illegal political hiring in the minds of the voters?

5 - Are there legal maneuverings occurring that we, the public, are unaware of, which would, if known, clarify the reasons for this decision?

6 - Does this event reveal that elements of commonality, and cooperation, exist, and between which groups? And of what nature and purpose?

7 - How has, and should, the issues in this case affect the commonly observed practices conducted within our city, and county, public safety branches of government? As in the police, fire and emergency departments?

8 - What effects may this decision have on the labor contract issues faced by the above departments?

9 - Does this development indicate an even greater need for an authentic individual being elected our county State's Attorney, an individual who will render moot the need for federal intervention into our local political morass of blatant criminal violations of state laws?


We keep looking to the federal government to protect us from our own, local political criminal enterprises, when our state prosecutors have sufficient authority to pursue justice, were they committed to doing so.

Since our county, and state, officials are elected, we, the voters, have the potential ability to elect those individuals who will vigorously investigate, pursue and prosecute offenders who have violated our state laws.

We have, so far, failed to elect such individuals.

We still can do so.

Assuming, of course, that we are presented with such individuals to vote for.

Do we have such a choice, this election cycle, (of a Primary Election, followed by a General Election)?

What do the readers of this board think?

What was the point of hiring her in the first place if the judge is going to summarily dismiss her findings.

This is the same Federal Judge who in 2005 " was disappointed in himself for having taken @ face value the city's claims that it was complying w/the court order".

The only logical, plausible reason for this bonehead decision by Judge Andersen,would be in the form of stacks& stacks of USC delivered to the Judges Chamber. Business as usual in Chicago.
Never mind the Lawyers& Politicians, it's Federal Judges who stick it to us on a Daily Basis.

Judge Wayne Anderson has a sister-in-law who works for the Chief Judge of Cook County in Rolling Meadows. It is a political show up job in-which she does nothing.

He is not to be trusted and the media should look into it.

court prioceedings involving the City of Chicago shouldn't be heard in Crook County, even if Federal. The media won't look into anything because they are Socialists like the Crook County Commie-crats.

I believe I saw old Wayne Anderson cruising north Broadway last week. I may be mistaken though. Anyway, he's about as good as a federal judge as that piece of shit Joan Lefkow. They are both liberal dumbasses!

He's also that judge that presided over the Daniel Salley trial. (That's the jagoff that shot Detective Airhart who bled for hours while the pussy FBI agents retreated. Now former FBI man Gary Kissinger is pulling down big bucks working for the MPAA's movie piracy unit. He's a pussy too!) While Salley was ranting out of control, old Wayne did nothing. Anyone else, defendant or lawyer, would be admonished by the judge. But Wayne was scarred shitless!

Fuck Wayne Anderson...political hack!

Let's not forget the CPD patronage. Dana just made the JTTF a 5 year gig so his Nigeran buddy can stay there that much longer. Sorry Dana, no pictures so you can understand what I'm saying.

If you are actually trying to deny that the overall US media has an overwhelmingly liberal bias you are way too stupid to try and debate. Talking politics with liberals is a complete waste of time.
