That Sanchez - He Dirty

  • Former city Streets and Sanitation boss Al Sanchez has called himself an “operational guy” who makes “lemonade out of lemons,” but a federal jury handed him a bagful of lemons today, finding the longtime former city official guilty of four of seven counts of corruption.

    “Today is not a fair day,” Sanchez told reporters.

No word on all those folks who weren't hired on whether they thought it had been a "fair" year or two.

Sanchez's family isn't happy:
  • But Sanchez's family said he was a scapegoat for higher-ranking players. Asked who Sanchez was taking the fall for, his mother, Mary Sanchez, replied, "The main guy is up there, at City Hall."

    "The fat cat," said sister Cynthia Ramirez, adding that her brother "was used."
Well Cynthia, you've got a couple of weeks, maybe a month or two, to convince your brother to tell the truth about who did the hiring, who was referred to him, who pulled the strings. We're sure plenty of Federal people would be more than eager to listen. Otherwise, your brother will just be another in a long line of patsies who lie down in front of a bus driven by Daley. And we have no sympathy for someone who won't help themselves.

But if he dosnt talk and does his time he will be rewarded by the Daley machine when he gets out. SCC, your asking him to sing like a canary and get off on a lighter sentence but, he will be mudd if he does do what you want.

Sanchez is a dirt bag for taking it up the ass for mayor dick.

You are no hero, homey. You are not even a martyr.
You are the consummate political scape goat.

Enjoy your 3 hots and a cot.

Another stupid man (this one happens to be bilingual!) about to take a stretch for Shortshanks. Just when you think there aren't enough dummies out there to pitch there wagons to the Mayor, another dummy steps up....kinda like taking down the various dope spots on the west side. You go in with the crew, only to return and find some fresh dummies back at the same location. Well, Mr. Sanchez, there's no fool like an old fool.

"Dirty Sanchez" will not flip. He's gonna take his medicine and keep his greasy mouth shut. After he does his time, he'll return to the D.C.E. (Daley Crime Enterprise) just in time to land the gig of "Hispanic Liaison Chief of the 2016 Chicago Olympic Committee", making somewhere in the neighborhood of a mid-six-figure salary to compensate him for his loyalty.

It's the Chicago way.

Well this makes sense, as I mentioned, it's gotta be hard to just wonder that any day now you will get your just reward...I just really would appreciate if on that day the FEDS would walk right into Shortshanks office and tell him he's under arrest, cuff him and then parade that asshole right out of his Ivory tower.
The amazing thing is, we have known it for so long but how the hell does this little guy get elected... I forgot, a vote organizer gets a nice job... with all the perks paid for by you and I...

The first comment about "Dirty Sanchez," I must have laughed for 10 minutes. Thank you for making my day. Once again someone is throwing themselves on the grenade for their buddy, shortshanks. People keep saying, someday he will get his. I hope I live to see that day if it ever comes.

So, Al, no matter how well you were taken care of, all that is gone and then some. What could you possibly owe to the 5th floor to compensate for this personal disaster? All those others see what's going to happen to them, as the noose gets tighter. Time for a vote of no confidence to start regime change! viva la revolucion!

patrick fitzgerald said about this case that it is imperative that the best applicant get the job regardless of any other factors and that to "rig" or otherwise manipulate these jobs applicants is a serious crime worthy of prosecution. who is hegoing to put in jail for implementing affirmative action. isn't this the same thing only it's federally mandated. i think this should be the basis of sanchez' appeal.

Al Sanchez is a criminal and all around horrible human being for many reasons beyond what came up at trial or the charges or convictions.

Al Sanchez has an interesting history since he brought money to the El Rukn street gang with than State Rep Larry Bullock at the behest of his then master Ed Vrdolyak--the money for the El Rukns was for them to support Jane Byrne in 1983--the El Rukns (former Black P Stone Nation) including the Apache Rangers took the money and supported Harold Washington.

Al Sanchez ran on the Solidarity ticket with Ed Vrdolyak against Harold Washington in 1987 (I can't remember if it was for City Clerk or City Treasurer) and than became a Republican. Sanchez remained a Republican and Vrdolyak aligned for only a short period of time because he quickly went with Mayor Richard M. Daley in time for his 1989 mayoral victory through a deal for jobs brokered by Gilbert "Chiefy" Delgado aka "Thiefy" (a long criminal record--and known as a theif) and Mayoral Boss Tim Degnan.

A brief digression here--Gilbert "Chiefy" Delgado aka Thiefy's brother Dominic Delgado had Delgado erection and got lots of political affirmative action contracts through Victor Reyes but also since the days of Vrdolyak being in charge. An investigation just into the Delgado contracts would reveal a lot.
Senator Tim Degnan from Bridgeport was known as a degenerate gambler and was into the outfit for 90G back in the late 70s and early 80s. Degnan had an outfit bookie and a major gambling problem. Degnan is involved with Roti relative Tommy DiPiazza aka Tommy D on the Brideport Village deal. Degnan along with Freddie Barbara (identified in Family Secrets Frank Calabrese trial as a made member of LCN and committed violent acts including arson in an Elmwood Park restaurant and extortion), Al Sanchez and Victor Reyes have a very kinky deal going with ALLIED WASTE--so don't worry about Statute of Limitations or that Reyes or Degnan are out of government.

Degnan is the power behind the thrown and the shadow mayor along with Jeremiah "Jerry" Joyce.
HDO was created by Degnan and used by Degnan and Joyce and is about as far from "Latino empowerment" as you get.

Al Sanchez is a unique scumbag insofar as he is an alcholic (well documented in arrests, car accidents and plenty of eye witnesses), cocaine addict (he hooked his wife and she died--the story of his wife's death is a story in and of itself), drunk driver, violent, bad drunk, power drunk, power hungry, mean, loud mouthed, vindicitve, low class individual.

Just google or Lexis some old news articles about Al Sanchez crashing his car and a shadow car leaving the scene where he was not the driver (city car) or getting pulled over and accusing the cop of racism on the tollway and saying "do you know who I am" or bar fights, car crashes, drunk driving pull overs that disappeared--read the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, Daily Southtown--or talk to cops willing to talk. Al Sanchez and most of the HDO guys were pigs.
Aaron DelValle was the guy who went drunk with a gun to the towing pound after a political event with State rep and cop Eddie Acevedo and threatened the workers and tried to get their car out of the tow, punched a cop and sued the city for abuse and got thrown out of court.

Real scumbags.

Al Sanchez got plenty of drug dealers jobs like Gil Valadez (allegedly just lost his CTA job and previously lost his city job for not revealing he was a convicted felon--he smoked a crack rock on CTA time)
Gil Valadez was not only a drug dealer but also an informant.
GILBERT VALADEZ federal felony convict in federal penitentary and rat.

Larry "the Beaver" Diaz is another story and more on that later.

Also Ray Gamboas youthful indiscretions are interesting.

The gang ties are interesting.

Friends of Al's wife Tina want to know if he knew about Flo or Maria Nino (who became the bigshot at Personnel and was involved in taking out Ray Frias in 2003)

Al Sanchez would raise money on city time (just ask Marshall Villanueva). Thiefy Delgado would extort money on his birthday and always want cash in a mean thuggy way. Al Sanchez knew about money for jobs, sex for jobs, bribes, extortion, misuse of city services, drug dealing, drug use, gang affiliations, beating people up, adultery, picking up garbage for favored private businesses, plowing snow for favored restaurants.
Al Sanchez is proud of the job he did at Streets and Sans but garbage is terrible in many parts of a very dirty city (not just the front of downtown and Lincoln Park) Al Sanchez ruined the Blue Bag recycling program.
Al Sanchez increased taxpayers property taxes as well as fees with questionable and corrupt towing practices, recycling, and Hired Trucks.
Al Sanchez dealt intimately with Angelo Torres the former gang banger of Hired Trucks fame.
Al Sanchez also dealt with HDO member and donor to HDO and former 2-6 gang banger Tony Munoz--George Prado and his heroin dealing ring.
Al Sanchez hired Roberto "Bobby Bull" Aguilar who served 80% of a 5 year Federal drug charge and former drug dealer.

Al Sanchez is a disgusting human being who did a terrible job for the city and broke the law in many ways that the Feds did not charge him with. Al Sanchez should be in jail for life.

Today the HDO, tomorrow LAPA and MAPA?

There must be a lot of meritorious Det's, Sgt's, Lt's, Capt's, Commd's and Dept's quaking in their shoes right now.

My greatest hope is that someone demands to see what has made these political hacks better than the next guy besides the ability to knock on doors or carry jock straps for bosses like Grau, Guerro, Acosta and Maher(Lopez, or whatever her maiden name was)

The damage these people have done to this department is nauseating.

Who hired the latina that tried to drive me out of my job Daley? Did this b**** from Bridgeport also put in her job application at a scummy biker bar Rich?

I just love MY bust out biker foreman. What woman wouldn't want to be sexually harassed by a guy old enough to be her father, divorced three times, who looks like a piss bum?

Ohhh....evaluations are coming out..... I'm dying to know what this "meritorious" scuzzball thinks of me.
