Trial Date for Ike

We're betting he takes the guilty plea in exchange for tiny prison time:
  • A federal judge today set a March 8 trial date for indicted Chicago Ald. Ike Carothers (29th) and a wealthy developer, both accused of taking part in a zoning-for-bribes scheme.

    Prosecutors, meanwhile, plan to turn over evidence in the case to the defense today.

    Carothers, an ally of Mayor Daley, and Chicago developer Calvin Boender have pleaded “not guilty” to the bribery and fraud charges.

We are most interested to see what the wire Ike wore actually captured in terms of bribes, contract fixed and job placement. Ike has a lot of relatives on the public payroll. Could be he let slip on how they got their jobs at some point. And who knows what might have transpired at certain Committee Meetings.

We can only pray that there was something worthwhile when he wore the wire. Please let Richie get jammed up.

I wonder how Ike will look in prison garb. I hope they don't have stripes, 'cuz he's a rather large man, and stripes make him look fat. Have fun, Ike!

Rumor has it that Ike caught Alderman Banks and company dirty. Banks and DiLeo have already decided to forego another run.

This is going to be very interesting indeed.

Is this the reason that the former Vice-Chairman of the Committee on Police and Fire, Alderman Ginger Rugai, has been visiting with the Feds?

The Chairman of the Chicago Police and Fire Committee:




ike's daddy served three years .. Maybe his son will follow in his footsteps... Check it out on wikipedia.. Ike and his brother Tony went around terrorizing people.
Straight outta wikipedia.....
In 1985, a federal judge ordered William Carothers, his two sons, and a fourth man to pay $152,000 in damages for a campaign of physical violence and intimidation organized by William Carothers, from prison, against a political opponent. Independent incumbent Illinois State Representative Arthur Turner of the far west side 17th District was challenged in 1982 by William Carothers' former assistant, Ozzie Hitchins, who was supported by the then imprisoned William Carothers. Turner aides were threatened with guns and one Turner aide suffering severe injuries to the side of the head, including broken bones. At the time Isaac and his brother were both Cook County deputy sheriffs with access to guns. Turner and aides filed a civil lawsuit following their defeat by Hitchins. U.S. District Judge Charles Kocoras said Isaac Carothers appeared to be the ringleader and "organized their acts of intimidation" by force while the other son used his deputy's position to verbally threaten the plaintiffs. Isaac Carothers was ordered to pay $25,000 of the damages.[3][4]
And Tony Carothers was just given a merit promotion by..... Ike Carothers.

Why is that criminal still in charge of the police? Why did the media ask for his comment on the use of deadly force policy when he is under indictment? Why does the media not bring this up? Why does Shortshanks get away with this? How can a disgraced alderman still be making policy decisions for the second largest police department in the country?

Why aren't the citizens of this city as pissed off as they should be about these things? Sheeple.

You realize, of course, that while these "facts" MAY BE correct, all it really means FOR SURE is that someone with a computer deposited the remarks on wikipedia. It does not necessarily mean it is correct or fact checked OR TRUE.

Hey, I'm just sayin.

Promote your brother meritoriously, twice, then when he is a lieutenant, place him in command of detectives, a critical job for which he is totally unqualified. He will remain there until he is promoted to commander. No wonder this job is scewed up.

Are you kidding me? We'll never know what was on those tapes. As far as promising someone a block of votes-this isn't Vermont, they already have the votes. Cash is what they're looking for. When a spoon-fed dimwit like Todd Stroger can win an election by an overwhelming majority, it's safe to say they don't give a shit who you vote for. They have the system so fined-tuned that a vote for another candidate or even not voting at all is a dem vote in Chicago. Vegas odds makers are so certain that Stroger will win the next election they won't bet that race.

The only bad thing about all of these Alderman getting indicted is that Daley will get to pick their replacements. Until the Feds cleanup the entire mess, it will be the same thing with different players.

Ike ain't stupid. he knew what he was doing when he wore the wire. don't think for a minute he comprimised family or friendly power brokers. he communicated to them in written or sign language that he was wired. it was an open and notorious secret that he was wired. Ike got Tony promoted at the last opportunity before the news broke. Tony making headlines of late. An eternal house mouse entitled to run a D unit. Where oh where is the federal monitor, what's her name...

Hey feds, if you're looking into Alderman Squeal's activities, ask him why a dope house operated with impunity across the street from his office; also ask him about his "alleged"financial interests in the Altgeld Gardens and Eden Greens and Concordia Homes complexes, and also ask him about the "alleged"kickback he got from a city employee for his support in a lawsuit...against the city!
If you don't ask him I'll send my proof to scc and the media and maybe they will!

guess what south side alderman. named in this blog allegely has the following ethical violations...
allegedly took kickbacks from one of his city employed constituents for his support in a lawsuit against the city

allegedly is involved with the carothers investigation,and not in a good way ( think co defendant co conspirator)

allegely has financial interests in two far south side housing developmens

allegely turned a blind eye to a drug operation that was next door to his aldermanic office

Im not going to drop his name because if I do, I'm sure he would squeal about it at least 9 times.
