Stroger Follies

  • Cook County Board President Todd Stroger has ousted his cousin from her $175,701-a-year job as the county’s chief financial officer amid questions about her dealings with a recently fired county patronage worker.
  • The controversy began after the Chicago Sun-Times raised questions about Cole’s troubled past — as well as the fact that Dunnings twice bailed him out of jail while he was her then-$58,000-a-year administrative assistant, according to court records.
Well, that explains why the Toddler had to give his cousin a raise - her boyfriend's bail money was eating into her disposable income.

And combine this with the report a day or so ago about the Toddler's "tax cut" - 0.25% - which means it you spend $100 in Cook County, you'll save a quarter!

He's a shoo-in as the reform candidate.

Give Toddler some time. I'm sure he's looking for a spot so he can re-hire her at $50,000 more than her previous post. She's worth the high salary, just ask her !!!!!!!!!!!

Forget it, Toddler. The "G" already has your filthy ass in their crosshairs, and have for some time. Too late for that guilty conscience of yours to motivate you into some kind of reform efforts. You're just as dirty as the rest of the Chicago Machine. Hopefully your complete story will come to surface shortly after Blago's conviction...if not sooner.

Erkle will still win next election when you have unions like 399 and A-hole Hickey selling his soul with jobs for votes. Nothing will change!

I love how stroger hired his cousin's boyfriend for a county job because of his qualifications. His qualifications was that he could play basketball. Classic.

The sad thing is this clown will probably win again because of the majority of idiots that live in county that survive on free handouts. People that vote for stroger could care less about the tax increases because they don't pay taxes.

Do we really need such a large county government since every town or city in the county already has its own government? How much unincorparated area is left in the county still?

Toddler got that seat from his daddy, then hired all his relatives, and play relatives.

Beavers (boss hog with the big nuts) was a good daddy and gave his Aldercreature seat to his daughter, until an election was held and lost to daddy Jackson's daughter in law.

This was all done with the approval of Richie Bitch, who got his seat because of his daddy.

Richie Bitch is upset at the disgraced ex Governor Ramrod Blagoabitch. Ramrod got his Congressman and Governor jobs because of his daddy in law.

That's right. Our "elected" officials are spoiled children with daddy issues. Instead of toys, they get a State, a County, a City, and a Ward to play with. Boy do they act like it!

Sorry, I don't play poker. But I think the gist of it is that Ms. Dunnings been gettin a lot of some some with this psycho felon and she likes do the wild thing at home rather than during conjugal visits in jail.

Yeah I'm paying attention to it. This piece of shit unqualified joke raised our property taxes to the highest in the nation. The best is Palatine. They told him to get fucked...they'll go to Lake County. Now the prick is scared and offered to reduce the tax.
Hopefully Obama's next.

Has anyone else noticed that when any of Stroger's people refer to him in an interview, they don't call him Mr. Stroger, they call him, "The President."

Were they ordered to do that, is that delusional or what.

It must be a contagious thing in politicians.

--No it isn't

Really it isn't. you wrote, and the tax in question is, 25/100ths of one percent, not 25%

You wrote .25%, that is one quarter of one percent. 25% is twenty-five percent or $25 out of $100.

Todd is considering rolling back one quarter of one percent of tax. 1% (one percent) of $100 is $1 (one dollar) One quarter of that is, well, a quarter, 25 cents.

If you use your calculator and enter .25 times 100 you come out with 25 but that is not one quarter of one percent, that is one quarter of something. A percent by definition is one/one-hundredth

To use a calculator without a percent key to figure one quarter of one percent you need to multiple 100 (one hundred) by .025 not .25

In summary:

.25 = one quarter or 25%

.25% = one quarter of one percent or .25%

And to think I struggled by in math with C's
But that wasn't CPS, that was a Catholic School in the 60's,

No it isn't

25% of $100 is $25
0.25% of $100 is 25 cents

For those who grew up with calculators, the placement of the decimal point is important. I grew up with a pencil and Sister Mary Patricia of the Sisters of Mercy smacking me on my knuckles with a ruler.

Plenty, years ago the bangers were wearing all their colors from the Clerk of the Courts office. I have not seen much of that lately, but bangers are not wearing their colors like they use to either.

Listen you IDIOTS!!!!

Cook County did not raise your property taxes, Daley did!! Read your tax bill fools!!!

The county only raised their sales tax from 0.75 to 1.75 percent.
1 PERCENT!

The total tax is 10.25

State gets 6.25%
City gets 1.00%
RTA gets 1.25%
County gets 1.75%

1.75 percent to keep the court systems OPEN---where do you think prisoners go when police arrest them?? And police make all that overtime??

COURT!!! and County JAIL!!!!
Top Notch Hospitals Stroger; Oak Forest and Provident....

This is where your 1.75 percent goes!!!

Now its down to 1.50 percent!!!

Learn before you speak you IDIOTS!!!!
