Patti Blago Fired
We assume she'll be collecting unemployment? At least she has selling real estate to crooked Illinois pols and connected developers as a fall back position:
- llinois First Lady Patti Blagojevich is out of a job.
Blagojevich — who started Sept. 1 as development director of the 100-year-old Chicago Christian Industrial League — was quietly dismissed from her $100,000-a-year job on Tuesday.
And how did she do at her $100,000 job?
- The Sun-Times reported that, in each of Patti Blagojevich’s first three months on the job, the Christian Industrial League brought in $10,000 to $15,000 a month — the same as it did before she started, according to president William Good.
So this was essentially a bribe to the Blago family. Or the Mell family - who knows where the money went. And the Chicago Christian Industrial League? Facing bankruptcy and maybe even dissolution after being around to help people since the turn of last century.
