Could This Unravel the Machine?

Keep your eyes on all the players (via HotAir.com):
  • If the Blagojeviches thought that impeachment might slake the thirst of federal investigators, they were sorely mistaken. The Chicago Tribune reports that feds dropped subpoenas on Patti Blagojevich’s former employer, which unceremoniously dumped her as soon as her husband joined the ranks of the unemployed. Investigators appear interested in what Patti did for the Chicago Christian Industrial League, and it looks like … not much
The writer then references the Sneed column that outlines the recent federal subpoenas served on the Christian Industrial League regarding Patti Mell-Blagojevich's employment there. Patti hired on as a fund raising coordinator for $100,000 per year after the CIL got favorable treatment on a state loan from a Blago created Illinois Finance Authority - typical pay-to-play politics and eerily similar to the University of Chicago hiring Michelle Obama for the same thing. Now that loan is in trouble and so is the entire CIL organization.

So now the questions become, what did Patti know, when did she know it, and what is Dick Mell willing to give up to keep Patti out of jail for the sake of his grandkids? We're sure Dick has written off his son-in-law. But his own daughter? Time will tell if he's a caring fatherly type.

Dick Mell wasn't willing to give up his arsenal to comply with the stuttering prick's "no guns for anyone" policies.
I say its cheaper to keep the daughter out of prison; let her take care of the kids instead of the 50 taxpayers still left in this state....

Blago had a brick thrown through his front window over the weekend. Now it's a "special attention".

Unlike any other city, county and state in the nation, it would take an Act of God to bring meaningful reform to the most deeply entrenched, shameless and systemic culture of corruption that exists.

Pray for a miracle. "Hail Mary, full of grace..."

Wildly similar except that Michelle Obama was qualified for the position, had a policy that she implemented, and is widely credited by former colleagues as having done a good job.

On the other hand, Patti B. was a former/current part time realtor-to-the-stars (star state contractors, that is) with no relevant experience and didn't accomplish anything.

What are you smoking?

Michelle's spot was so valuable that as soon as she vacated it, the U of C left it unfilled when she resigned a year ago and eliminated it in the last round of budget cuts. You don't see anything suspicious in that she got the spot the month after Barrack was elected to the US Senate and just before Barrack earmarked a cool million dollars to the U of C hospitals?

Take off the blinders idiot. Barrack is not the messiah and is a Machine politician. Michelle is into up to her eyeballs.

Daley's crew is going to have to do better than that. Blago is backed into a corner and he knows it.

Michelle Obama as the VP of UofC had a contractual arrangement with a consulting company. The consulting company was used to open "health" clinics in the area. The poor and welfare folks were steered to the welfare clinics. There was some beefing about it.
Guess who headed the consulting company? David Axelrod
This article was in one edition of the tribune and that is it. The other editions did not have the article. Oh well.
It is all on the square kids.

Forget the brick, shortly after report was made an et and detective were assigned. To every citizen in the city next time you are a victim of a crime request a detective and see what you are told. Call your alderman and let them know you are being shortchanged, detectives and et do not go to damage to property jobs unless ordered to by someone with clout, 017 commander?

There's nothing the feds can do to Daley. I'm sure he has them in his pocket too. Daley is way above the feds and they can't touch him. He has gotten away with his corruption for so long that he is much smarter than any investigating body. All he has to do is say "I did not know my friends were doing such illegal things."

SCC, I just got a call from one of the many canidates for Emmauls Congressional Seat. I asked the guy what his candidate is going to do for law engforcement. He told me his candidate supports law enforcement. I told him i haven't seen one candidate state that they support the police. I told him the last election, they all said that they will fight police corruption. POLICE COPRUPTION. I told him what about politcal corruption. He didn't like that.

I know almostly everyone has gotten these phone calls. We need to start asking these candidates what are they going to do for law enforcement, if they want our vote. What about more money for new vehicles, radios, PDT's. What about hiring more officers. What about saving our pensions from shortshanks. What about stiffers sentences for offenders that harm police officers.

I told him until i see one of theses candidates stand up for the police in the papers or on the news, like Alderman Tom Allen did, I will not vote for any of them.

This is all for show.

Mother of g-d, I wish I was wrong but the fix is in.

Nothing legally is going to come of all this.

Nobody is going to jail.

The gall and underhandedness of these Chicago politicians has no bounds.

They are sowing anarchy and revolution.

Next he'll carve a swastika into his forehead and claim that he was attacked by skinheads -- remember Morton Downey? -- or duct-tape himself, drench himself with bleach, and claim to have been sexually assaulted like Tawana Brawley.

I am on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST, and I work midnights. Any call from any candidate will automatically cross that person off the list of people I would vote for.

Just so you know, the national do not call list only blocks companies. Politicians and charities are exempted.

I applied to be a special events coordinator at the CIL a few years ago, and the pay was just $17,000. Hmmmmm
