latin king Runs for Clerk

Not only does he have a UUW arrest for holding guns for the kings in his background, his family was notorious for running a fake ID ring up and down 26th Street, his father was convicted and faces deportation after his sentence is complete, the building housing the Photo Estudio Munoz burned down under suspicious circumstances, and he has a short temper and is inclined to violence as evidenced on YouTube when citizens confront him.

Oh yeah, he's also an alderdcreature. Thank goodness he isn't designing city stickers.

Yet somehow none of that manages to disqualify him for running for higher office:
  • The most prominent Cook County primary race this year is for an office that generally is low-profile: clerk of the Circuit Court.

    Chicago Ald. Ricardo Munoz (22nd), who has been on the City Council since 1993, is challenging three-term incumbent Dorothy Brown, also of Chicago.

    At the heart of the race is what many rank-and-file lawyers privately regard as a scandal: the office’s inefficiency in handling court records and the frequency with which key documents go missing. One Chicago politician jokes that the office is so antiquated that it’s the largest consumer of carbon paper anywhere.

    Both Munoz and Brown claim they can fix those problems.

Of course, Brown is no prize herself, steeped in Machine politics and with all sorts of mini-scandals surrounding her tenure. But with these two idiots in the mix, is it any wonder Chicago wins the "most corrupt" title hands down?

O.T. but Related....
Earlier today on WLS radio, I was listening to a show and a question was raised about what Chicago's biggest export was? Immediately, it came to me that our biggest export is politicians!!!!! We send more politicians to other states Fed pens than any other city or state accross the U.S. Unfortunately, I was unable to call in and offer this up, but thought it quite funny and amusing in a warped way. Funny at our expense.........

The Munoz 'Familia' are the original (and continuing) beneficiaries of Chicago's 'Sanctuary City' status.

They are pioneers of the cultural exploitation that has brought this city, state and country to its financial knees.

They epitomize and personify what's wrong with liberal society today.

The continuing demise of our once-great nation can be attributed, in great part, to allowing shit like this to continue. Keep voting Democratic all you fucking assholes..

Criminals have taken over and will never be put out in this city. Black Panther now US representative, Latin King now alderman, terrorist Ayers now a retired professor with ties to the white house, criminal mayor with criminal son living large at taxpayer expense while nephew kills people in bar fight.

No problem. Just remember that it's too much of a hassle to vote and get your family to vote.

Decades ago old man Daley and his criminal cohorts perfected a Democratic voting machine. It turned into the Frankenstein's monster we have today.

Born of a criminal empire, the monster spirals out of control and has become a cancer to this City, State and Country. The Nation has it's Kennedy cancer too, same kind of players.

Since the voters can't seem to wake up, it appears terminal.

There is no hope for Chicago. It's doomed. Also, SCC you should be ashamed speaking that way about a M-4 and a F-1. Racist! (joking)

Brown in office 12 years and hasn't a single reform. Munoz the part time alderman thinks he can do better than nothing. Or nothing better.
FOP, Why not go with "not recommended"
for the City Clerk.
Why support a lesser of two evil political hacks?
No Daley kin wanted the job? FOP needs to get into the political slating ring and find candidates amongst us. Regardless of our 'experience' for that office, how has either candidate here faired?
Really, what does it take to run a City department that is truly unnecessary. Why is there a Clerks Office when we have a Revenue Dept? What exactly is a clerk by city definition? City stickers, more than half sold by currency exchanges and we need a clerk?
Why are there 50 Alderman? Or one more that has a criminal family background that wants a bigger budget to play with.
The city cut employees from the workforce, how about cutting the expanses of city government first.

What is taxation without representation? burke you and your criminal ally madigan cut and carved up this ward to this shit! who will pay the taxes when we all move out?
Lets see the city lost 250,000 blacks and yet they lost NO aldermen at all! Read in the fibune how mike zalewski tried to stand up to the rahm/burke/madigan steamroller and lost! guess the "people" never had a vote on this, just like the g-8 destruction coming in may!

Yeah those damn Liberals..except what did G.W. Bush do on a national level other than produce propaganda that the illegal immigrants should be matched up with the jobs that American's don't want to do. The conservatives are waving them over the borders too so that they can be counted in the US Census for $1,200 per head in federal aid per year and a shot at creating yet another legislature seat for their friends in Washington.

Democrats, Republicans, there is no difference anymore. The money corrupts BOTH sides and that is why people feel that there is no choice.

How many Latin King members (children of migrants who are born here thus U.S. citizens) does Munoz recruit to get their vote?! High ranking members of the Latin King street gang ORDER members to vote, in the best interest of the gang. The Chicago Way!

Well, as Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, he can "lose" or have his lackeys "lose" case files. Maybe run a few prosecutions out on speedy trial grounds. Obviously, it's also a patronage feast (only Munoz's lackeys won't have legal status and won't be able to speak English).

Wait a minute here. I worked in 10 uin the early 90's. There was more shit going on in the mall at 26 Kedzie then you realize. A police officer ran security at the mall where Munoz had his photo shop. People sold pirated videos and music on the streets, phony green cards, autos and just about anything else that they could. Everyone who worked in the station knew about it, but what can a beat guy do? The commander knew what was going on as did the tact lt and the tact teams. The cop who ran security was the brother of an state rep. Nothing knew here. Hispanic politics controlled everything back then and it probably still does.

Former Latin King with shady gun past, was appointed at first but then re-elected by his fellow gang familia co-harts & families. Father is now a convicted felon and will be deported after serving his time. The Alder-creature is also the one who had his daughter put in Whitney Young after making an alleged phone call to the principal with the news hounds all over this issue about the selection process. Try getting your kid in there or at Walter-Payton, North Side-Prep, Jones, or any of the better schools. This guy will make Dorthy Brown look like a reformer if he get's in with all the gang ties he still has and who he will put into the clerks office. Do you really want this guy as your City Clerk?
