Mobster Doth Protest Too Much

Sometime blog reader and author Robert Cooley made an accusation this week that Blago used to be part of a mobbed up bookkeeping operation in the western suburbs. Cooley would have some knowledge of these shenanigans as he turned government witness and helped jail 24 other lawyers, politicos, judges and a cop or two. Now there's a convicted bookmaker stepping up to say he never had any dealings with Blago.
  • Abbinanti admits having run outfit gambling rackets with Marco 'The Mover' D'amico and that he was convicted with top mob gambling bosses for which he spent six years in the federal penitentiary.

    "I don't know what Rod Blagojevich did or has done but I do know one thing. I never met the man. I never spoke to the man. I never had any business personal or in any way with him and you know what, it's just an injustice," said Abbinanti.

All that proves is that Abbinanti is smarter than Blago for not getting caught on federal wiretaps. But what does it say about Illinois politics when a convicted Outfit soldier is your most prominent defender and your lawyer has a habit of representing persons known by the Chicago Crime Commission as mob members?

I just spoke with my old college roommate, Bob Cooley.

Last night's I-Team report on ABC Channel 7 and the interview with James Wagner, former director of the Chicago Crime Commission, corroborates the truth of Cooley's statements about scumbag Blagojevich.

As a supervisor with an Organized Crime squad, FBI-Chicago, during Operation Gambat, Agent Wagner worked with Cooley, almost on a daily basis.

Bobby also conveys his wishes that all CPD officers, active and retired, have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I am not sure if Blago was ever a mob connected bookie but I do know years ago Gov. Blagojevich got me for 75 bucks in a game of 3 card monte on the back of a CTA bus. I wish I was the police back then.

MISSY, Where have you been and how are you feeling ? All this Blago stuff has got me thinking, I need to do good and erase this negative atmosphere that Blago has cast upon us all. The only way I can think of is to write as many parkers for our great city as I can. I have worked tact all my career but that is a dead end street. If I can get to 018 will you train me ? I want to write 500 parkers a day. P.S. I never liked Tom Byrne (rtd) but after reading what he is doing for you in your time of need I have a greater respect for him. signed Parking Guru trainee

I people, Missy back again.

What a nice people-person of the above that wants to help our mayor get out of debt.

Good news people, I found out that I got that STD from the ladies room while I worked time and half special 3 months ago at the airport. People, never sit on toilet seat ! That leaves my former A.C.L.U. lawyer-husband IRA off the hook.

People, I feel bad I did not believe him. But he was in the constant company of men while working for our great President elect. He did admit that he like men but not too often. Should I trust him People ?

My uncle Tom Byrn (rtd) told me I should go back to work this Monday.

He said parkers and revenue is way down. Why is it people. You slugs are lucky to have a job. IRA said you P.O. were all well over-paid. IRA was on the money people.

I am very tired hearing you people beef about no salt on the streets.
People !!! the mayor needs help, go buy your own F**King salt already....sorry, I did not mean to swear. But you people only care about yourselves. Stop it now you slugs.

My uncle Tom told me to get ready for all the "Balls" in D.C. next month. My uncle Tom and IRA will be dancing all into the night. IRA will appointed to a nice Lawyer job coming next week. Yes people, I know IRA is a Man-hound, but he is sweet to me !

If the persons wants to come to 018 and learn the "Art" of writing hundreds of parkers she me writing on Oak & Michigan, 2nd. W. I am 5-3 and a little heavy 179 lbs.

Got to run peole,
stay safe,

More on Michelle Obama. All the wives were involved - Rita Rezko, Patti Blagojevich, Michelle Obama, and others. The scheme goes like this:

1. If you want to do business with the state, you have to know the right people.
2. In order for the right people to approve you for business, you must contribute to their campaign fund.
3. If you contribute enough, your wife will also get a (paid) seat on a state board.
4. These various state boards, such as the Health Facilities Planning Board, Illinois State Toll Highway Authority, Cook County Employees Appeals Board, State Gaming Board, control who does business with the state.
5. Repeat.
6. Get caught.

And then there are all the incestuous relationships on non-state boards that the wives are rewarded with.

This scheme comes up in the Blago tapes, involving Michelle and Rita. Seems Blago had reason to believe Obama would do something nice for Patti Blago. Where would he get an idea like that? Awfully presumptious, unless it was based on experience.

I know you're fictional. Notwithstanding, there are a handful of people who are actually OTJ that are just like your mythical "parking ticket guru".

They nauseate me. They should turn in their stars and pistols and become much lesser-paid meter maids.
As police officers, they are worthless.

Why don't you, your "Uncle Tommy" and Daley shove a few summons books up your ass? Your ilk is a disgrace to courageous, professional law enforcement officers who are in harm's way.

If your original intent was sarcasm, you're now banal and aggravating to "Chicago's Finest".

How dare you call Cooley a RAT! When it comes to a city that has historically had more corrupt politicians, judges and mobsters per capita than any town in this nation, I wish there were hundreds of "moles" to rid us of the cancer of unrepentant "RATS" from Daley on down.

I despise what RAT politicians have done to the once proud reputation of "Chicago's Finest".

Bob's late father was an exemplary CPD detective and a daily communicant.

Cooley WAS slime--that how you catch slime. The G had nothing on him. He had an epiphany as a once third generation police officer. You will find his hero grandfather's name on the hallowed wall of our fallen at CPD HQ:

PO James COOLEY was shot and killed while attempting to arrest an armed robber on April 4, 1927.

There are and were many officers like myself that the corrupt clout slime considered a pariah because they KNEW we were as clean as a hound's tooth, had intense pride in our honorable calling and would not tolerate their corruption.

This city desperately needs more Bob Cooley's to infiltrate its underbelly and bring genuine reform. Cooley would be the first to admit that after sinking to the depths, it was his saintly father and incidents like (NOTE 10:38 PM) the Cathy Touhey beating in 015 that shamed him into voluntarily walking into the Dirksen Bldg. He had had enough. He could no longer live with the guilt.

"The Cooley Redemption" had begun.

Now if you've got the cojones to use your actual identity in response to my post, fire away!

If not, shut the fuck up for the judgmental coward that you truly are.

Not just brutally beaten. He tried to beat her to death. God love her. Good to hear she was promoted. If Cooley has any respect for cops, he'll find a lawyer blog and go. If the copper who keeps floating Cooley here has any respect for his fellow officer that was forced to be beaten like a dog not once, but twice because of Cooleys clear and present action, He will cease this action, which is obscenely offensive to everyone in a CPD uniform. He should not come back to the blog, because then you sir, are no gentleman.

Ol' vet says...

I read Cooleys book, "When Corruption Was King."
Yes, he was a totally corrupt lawyer, mostly for the mob/1st Ward.(He was a law instructor in the academy on O'Brien St. when I started) He talks about Cathy Touhy among other cases he was involved in, in his book. IF in fact he had ANY redeeming values, aside from coop with the "G" vs. the 1st Ward, he had the mob enforcer (not guilty finding) case of Harry Aleman reversed! The theory that was used to avoid the 'double-jeopardy' defense of the retrial was simply... Since the Aleman murder trial was "FIXED" from the get-go, Aleman was 'NEVER' in jeopardy in the first place! Thus, a retrial on the original not guilty and a subsequent finding of guilty. First ever reversal ruling of this type. In fact,(unknown to me at the time) he was the defense attorney on one of my cases that was "Motion to Fix" and the judge threw it out after a motion by Cooley for a 'directed verdict' when it appeared that the trial was not going in his favor. I was totally dumbfounded for years until I later learned the involvement of the lawyer (Cooley) and the involved judge. IF you have mixed feelings about giving Cooley any financial support, get his book from the library for free and read it instead of buying it. It makes for interesting reading especially when he gives ALL THE DETAILS on how Ald. Ed Burke AND his wife Judge Anne Burke should be behind bars as well for some of their documented shennanigans. Just my humble input/opinion.
Stay safe out there my brothers.

You are outspoken and sincere. No one can fault you as a cop. You were the best.

Cooley was and is a first class asshole who brought his own problems on himself. When you use coccaine & other various drugs, make bets with certain people and then can't pay your debts and continue to be an asshole then he gets what he deserves.....and probably would of had he not of ran to the G and cried, help. His family has a proud ancestry and that cannot be denied. But old Bobby is still a RAT!!!

So far two of his three attorneys are a couple of the biggest jokes in Cook County. This whole impeachment should be good for a laugh or two.
