Buffer Pleads Guilty - Again

  • John Harris, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's chief of staff, pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to charges that he helped Blagojevich attempt to sell Barack Obama's U.S. Senate seat.

    It was the second time Harris had entered a guilty plea for the same conduct. Friday's plea was a technicality.
  • Harris was Blagojevich's chief of staff at the time that FBI agents arrested the two in December 2008.

    Harris now is working as an apprentice electrician to support his wife and three children, Ekl said.

So does this "feather" in the US Attorneys cap count as a politician feather or a corrupt Chicago Police Exempt feather? We guess it's a politician feather.

And we thought the Electrician's Local had closed their apprentice program seeing as how so many of their members are currently sitting around the union hall playing cards and waiting for a call to come in. Amazing how that works.

You can bet he’ll be well rewarded for sending Daley’s enemy up the river. Watch for him to re-appear as a high roller on the public payroll some time in the future.

I wonder how Fitzgerald likes his view of the world from Daley’s hip pocket ?

Harris's attorney Eckl is a true scumbag in his own right, he's one of the top attorneys regurlarly suing the city and Chicago police officers.

You've got your terminology all wrong, SCC. I think to truly capture the kind of services Harris provided to Shortshanks and Blago, the more accurate description of his job title would be FLUFFER.

Isn't John Harris the original Mike Masters? And what an arrogant sob he was. Didn't he oversee the bulldozing of Meigs Field? He was and probably still is the mayors lackey. He's a weasel, and because he was captured on a FBI wire he has no choice but to cooperate against Blago. I'll be impressed when he talks about 5th floor City Hall.

Harris is a very close friend of Mayor Daley. He'll probably get another City Job, as electrician supervisor or Commissioner. Just Watch!

Apprentices often work before journeymen, especially those almost through with their apprenticeship. They make less..My nephew is in a trade and just tanked his journeyman's test in favor of working as an apprentice. He'll retake the test next year.

But the fix is still in anyway.

Blago should've let me sell it for him. I can sell anything. Look what wanting to save my fifty dollar membership fee to FauxChgo did for him?

It's like a scene out of The Godfather Part II, when Cicci is testifying before Congress.

"Oh yeah, a buffer. The family had a lot of buffers!"

So wait a minute!

This arrogant ass-nugget is an electrician now?


Has he EVER done a lick of manual labor in his life?

Hire his ass for a fixed post changing the bulb in that last funky, crusty-ass shit house stall where the toilet is filled to the top & the bowl is split damn near in half...

Yet another puffed-up political hack.

Where do they get these muthafuckahs in such quantity?

Does Daley Inc. grow 'em like mushrooms or something?

Is Chicago a fucking gateway to Hell?

He was a snob and very arrogant when he was a civilian exempt. The arrogance will always come back and bite you in the ass.

Ask a certain Deputy Chief in the D-Unit about Harris! Could Harris have been his clout?
