Thank goodness the feebs added those extra corruption task forces here:
- Federal authorities are asking questions about a controversial contract awarded last year to manage harbors for the Chicago Park District, one of the losing bidders and the state attorney general's office disclosed Wednesday.
The questions involve the Park District's deal with California-based Westrec Marina Inc., which has operated the harbors for more than a decade after the district privatized management. After Westrec won a new five-year contract in December, one of the firms vying for the contract wrote a letter to the U.S. attorney in Chicago and the Illinois attorney general contending the contract process was skewed in favor of Westrec.
Yet another round of the "Chicago Way." But don't worry - Parks Board president Gery Chico says everything is above reproach and just because he's a Daley appointee has nothing to do with his stand. What we wouldn't give for a few of Daley's hand picked henchmen to be waterboarded for a day or so. The tales they could tell.
