Sneedling is a Gold Nugget
- Hire 'em & fire 'em?
Hmmmm: Sneed hears rumbles the Chicago Christian Industrial League is in a quandary over what to do with its development director, first lady Patti Blagojevich.
• • Translation: The League, which- works to restore families affected by poverty and homelessness, feels compassion for Patti, but is concerned about the publicity stemming from the "pay-to-play" federal probe involving her husband. Her role as development director remains a sticky wicket. Will her role change? She's been keeping a very very low profile at work, where she has a one-year contract for $100,000.
So what does Sneed do? Points out that Patti Mell-Blago has a one-year contact for $100,000 from the Christian Industrial League to sit on their board. Could the flashlight be any brighter? Does Sneed have to use a laser pointer to show the feebs the way? How about the rest of the so called "investigative" reporters? Kass has been giving people the road map for years. Sneed, inadvertently or on purpose, just put the biggest target of all on Blago's wife.
Knowing some of Chicago's more underhanded political tricks, we wouldn't doubt for a minute that she was told to put the spotlight on the governor's wife, but anyone with half a brain would do well to look around the edges of the light in the not so well hidden shadows and see who else's wives, daughters, sons, nephews, etc,. have been sitting on corporate boards, pension boards, zoning boards, rules committees and such.
