Big Nuts = Big Indictment

  • The “Hog” says he wouldn’t squeal — and he got indicted because of it.

    Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, an old-school Chicago politician who likes to call himself “The Hog With the Big Nuts,” has been indicted on federal tax charges.

    The feds allege he failed to pay taxes on $225,000 from his campaign accounts and used it for personal expenses including gambling and boosting his city pension.

    A federal grand jury found he illegally converted more than $225,000 in campaign funds into income and failed to pay taxes on it between 2006 and 2008, prosecutors said.

    But Beavers, 77, said they only indicted him because he refused to wear a wire on fellow Commissioner John Daley, the former mayor’s brother.

    “They tried to get to me to become a stool pigeon and I wouldn’t become a stool pigeon,” Beavers said Thursday, telling the Sun-Times he hadn’t been told of the indictment. “They wanted me to wear a wire on John Daley. S---.”

Unfortunately, the chances of Beavers pulling what we'll call a "Bill Henry" are better than average. Hog Nuts is old and if he drags things out, he might actually beat the Feds by his mere mortality. But it's nice to see this asshole continuing the fine Chicago tradition of sending current and former aldercreatures to the pen.

Now that John Daley wire....there's something that deserves a bit more exploration.

So "Big Hawg Balls" finally got his tit caught in the federal wringer. He should have been behind bars a generation ago. Same for Richard II.

I remain in possession of a proffer for a former CPD "lieutenant", one Robert PURTILL and a redacted copy of an FBI 302 in which PURTILL confessed to S/A Daniel Berger, FBI-Chicago, that he bribed Beavers, then the 7th Ward Alderman and Chairman of the Committee on Police and Fire, to be promoted to lieutenant in the first wave (#98) of EXAMSCAM. While Purtill's scores on the two legitimate written portions of the process were abysmally poor, he scored high on the rigged "oral boards" (i.e., "notify the watch commander", etc.) which were weighted at an incredible 80% after the fact. Purtill, who entered a guilty plea to tax evasion in the "Operation Phocus" liquor license shakedowns even admits that he also paid for his chevrons. Then U.S. Attorney Anton R. Valukas and "da Mare" ignored our incontrovertible "smoking gun" evidence. Cover-up extraordinaire.

For more details, check the SCC archives for July 11-13, 2009 under the thread entitled "Pay to Play?" Quicker yet, go to the GOOGLE search engine and enter in quotation marks "Pay to Play" and "Operation Phocus" (Phocus is NOT a misspelling for focus). You will get 2 hits, the first being the recent UIC white paper on Chicago being "the most corrupt city in the nation". Click on the last hit entitled Second City Cop: Pay to Play. Scroll down among the 179 posts, 3 by "NorthSide" for details on Beavers' role in EXAMSCAM.

Study harder, my ass. This whole CLOUT job is rigged. "THE CHICAGO WAY" now known as "merit".

Beavers has a treasure trove of incriminating knowledge that could put scores of crooked pols from "the most corrupt city in the nation" behind bars. FLIP AND ROLL, "Big Hawg Balls".

No Daley will ever see prison stripes as long as their boy is the POTUS and Holder is the Attorney General. They'll throw us a small fish now and then to try to appease us but no "keepers" will ever hit the net.

Whats really disgusting is the fact that Beavers was able to steal over 60 grand of County Taxpayer money and pay it forward into his pension to guarantee him a monthly check of over 6 thousand upon retirement. And all these scum thief pols do their best to paint us as the greedy public employees responsible for bankrupting the city.

A thief is a despicable creature but easier to accept when he stays small and out of the limelight. I pray that arrogant prick never sees a pension check.

We've all worked with a lot of good officers who gave this city and its residents the best years of their lives and never saw one.

Over 50 years in crooked chicago politics this POS would have been invaluable to the only fed to get ...thiiss close.. to nabbing the criminal daley clan. Beavers is protecting someone other then himself, his family, girlfriends, most are the public teet and he learned early on its better to be on the daley/burke irish welfare system, then go on the illinois public aid roll. This POS would have sung like a canary, otherwise. He's 77 years old, not in the best of health and lives by the ghetto code of his constituancy, the genocidal"no snitch" rule. So for the next 2 years he will be in and out of the medía, distracting the public from the other political criminals and their shenanigans. Doing his best mistrel show, for the bosses, he sold his ass to. Then he'll make a deal with the IRS and die.

If convicted, the only way that 77-year-old thieving piece of shit will get out of the joint is in a coffin.

If U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and the DOJ don't extend Beavers every opportunity (immunity to live out his days in the Witness Protection Program) to flip on Chicago's crooked politicians, you must question the (lack of) integrity of the DOJ. The FIX is in, just like when they pulled the wire too early on Blago. Only "small fish" qualify for federal prosecution. Teflon rules RICO. Even then, one can't rule out a "presidential pardon" for these maggot$.

The indictments of the Daleys, Burke, JJJ and a few other "big fish" in "the most corrupt city in the nation" would blow the Richter Scale off the grid with multiple orgasms among decent cops and taxpayers.

Comm. Beavers is no better or worse than all our crooked self serving Illinois politicians. I do believe the Feds took him down because he wouldn't wear a wire for them. John Daley has run the Crook County Board since the days of Old Man Stroger. He engineered putting Todd "Erkle" Stroger in office when his Dad was dying. Johnny Daley has been running the show since Old Man Stroger was in office. Toni Prickwankle is just a front for the Daley's. As for the Feds they only do "selective prosecutions". How many of these inept crooked politicians never get their day in court. They go after morons like Blago and let the Daley Crime Family, the Racoon, and Eddie Burke, and so many others just walk. Fitzgerald is as much a conniving politician as the shitheads he puts away. Jim Thompson was a wonderful example of prosecutors/politicians. Sold our state out to every scumbag around. He joins a big time law firm and rakes in millions. And they even name the fucking State of Illinois Building after him.

1. BOLLING, Douglas
2. COFFEY, Fred J.
3. PATTERSON, Raymond E.
4. McCLENDON, Elton
5. BATTS, William
6. ROSS, Nathan

Based on scores on the first two written legitimate components, some deserved the promotion and some did not. One (on videotaped 10%) superfluously replied "notify the watch commander" to all eight items of which four were rigged. If the two in-house exempt "raters" had simply asked him the time of day, his reply would predictably include the shibboleth "notify the watch commander".
