Hello?!? It's STOLEN Money

  • A fire-ravaged Bronzeville church that has been waiting two years for a $1 million state payout -- promised by Gov. Blagojevich in the heat of his re-election bid -- may have to wait even longer.

    That's because atheist activist Rob Sherman filed suit in a Downstate court, saying the grant deal with Pilgrim Baptist Church violates the constitutional separation between church and state.

  • ...the money he had promised the church went to a politically connected private school displaced by the fire from space it had rented from Pilgrim Baptist -- a snafu Blagojevich attributed to a "bureaucratic mix-up" by his administration.

    The school used the money to buy space in a Loop office building but has yet to hold classes, triggering reviews of that deal by the state Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and Attorney General Lisa Madigan. The House also voted unanimously to have Auditor General William Holland study the whole transaction.

That's $1 million just given away to someone who it never should have been given to. There has also been zero effort to recover the money and when they went through the paperwork, they found an previously unknown criminal pardon tucked into the grant. We mean, how obvious does it have to be that this was Blago-abetted theft? And combined with the other crap Hendon's been spearheading with Emil Jones? There ought to be a while bunch of vacancies in the political order.

I don't know why one single dollar of tax payer should be given to either iof them.

Shouldn't they have had insurance or the roofing co. should have insurance that started the fire.

everyone else has it.

Just more shit heads wanting wanting wanting. When is going to end?

Yes this is a theft of Money set up by Blago. He even pardoned the women he was giving the money to just so it wouldn't look like he was giving the money to a convicted felon. The crook Co. Dem political machine at work. These guys are worse than the outfit.

Politicians steal? They lie and tell half truths? They'll say whatever people want to hear?

I didn't know that. I'm very disappointed.

Can you fault Blago for trying this?

Obama did it with St. Sabina and got away with it.

worse than this is the revelation that blago stiffed the cta out of the 37 million subsidy. now the cta is in worse shape than before because of all the free rides given out by the guv. in a few months it will be huberman handing out the pink slips again and threatening to cut bus routes. looks like another far increase will be the only answer. but the real problem is that the people of the state of ill are sick of bailing the state of chicago out of trouble over and over again due to all the thievery and mismanagement. no fan of the madigans but i think the old man has whispered a "jesse" into blagos ear.

Daley is stealing millions from CPD, CFD, STS/SANS, ETC. contracts. Monies from the citizens' coffers for city services that daley is trying to privatize to hourly wages without benefits. The hourly tma, meter maids, cta workers work hourly till a full-time position opens up, janitorial...if daley could get away with it, this whole city would be hourly wages divided into fiefdoms.


all top positions throughout the city are paid BIG MONIES/LIFETIME BENEFITS to go along with the program, all paid for by citizens. That is why there is only silence from any leader you name or pick.

There is no division between Church & State when it applies to the "REV'S".They simply cater to who ever throws OUR tax dollars their way,and nobody says a word.If we had any semblance of media scruples it would be like shooting ducks in a pond.

OBAMA should have no problem talking to radical clerics,he's used to it from our Southside.I'm sure the nut from IRAN will have a ghetto fabulous Escalade in his driveway the day OBAMA is sworn in.God help us.

If anything good comes out of our contract PLEASE DO AWAY WITH THE RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT.This city makes Gotham look like Salt Lake City.The thought of OBAMA rubber stamping a DALEY Liberal Agenda is unbearable.The firing of Fitzgerald,Appointing of Liberal Supreme Ct Justices and the 3rd Worldization of this city/country is heartbreaking.I don't want to drown in this cesspool any longer I just want my family to see the glow in the sky when the city goes up.We will be CHI-CONGO by 2015.

If you think that is strange or unique then you don't know how it is done in Illinois. There is massive fraud and theft of OUR money and it goes on daily. And we are too stupid to even go out to the polling place to vote some new people in office.

Out usual choices are either the Republican thieves or the Democrat thieves. Either way we get fleeced.

Why can't OBAMA pull out the troops from IRAQ to patrol his own irresponsible neighborhood.More people died on the SOUF-SIDE than ALL OF A WAR ZONE.

This City and County will always be as crooked as a corkscrew until the Feds totally take over the CPD, County Sheriff, and States Attorney's Office, and clean house once and for all. We are the laughing stock of the Nation..
