DuPage County State's Attorney Joe Birkett is jumping into the governor's controversial offer to put state troopers on Chicago's streets to fight what the governor called "out of control" crime.
"I urge you to stop disparaging the Chicago Police Department, who, in my opinion, have done an outstanding job in their fight against street gangs," Birkett told Gov. Blagojevich in a letter today.
- J-Fed is learning how the game is played. Do what Daley says and be spared embarrassment.
- Blago is on the verge of impeachment and/or Federal charges. That mean Lisa Madigan is running for governor.
- Madigan occupies the spot that Birkett ran for a few years back.
