Still Connected

  • Former Gov. George Ryan spent just hours at a halfway house on Chicago’s West Side this morning before he was released and sent to his Kankakee home, where he will be on home confinement until he completes his 6 ½-year sentence.

    Ryan will not have to wear an electronic monitor while under house arrest, according to his lawyer, former Gov. Jim Thompson.

    "I think it was a wise decision by the Bureau of Prisons, but it's not something I asked for, it's not something he asked for. So it is in no way preferential treatment,” Thompson said.

    Ryan left the federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind. at about 1 a.m., arrived at Thompson's home around 4:30 a.m. in sweats and changed clothes, Thompson said. He was processed at the halfway house and arrived in Kankakee at about 10:30 a.m.
Must be nice to skip what any unconnected parolee has to go through. A stay there might have done him some good.

On a happier note, Ryan's wife was there to greet him when he got out:
  • Former Gov. George Ryan had been back in his Kankakee Victorian home a little less than an hour Wednesday morning, when one of his grandchildren approached, holding a golden urn.

    It contained the ashes of his late wife, Lura Lynn Ryan.
Rot in hell George.

Oh.

Couldn't make that up if you tried.

This is horrible but...how many children burned to death because he was selling CDLs to ilegal aliens?

There ya go, George. Nice little reminder.

Enjoy wandering around the house listening to the clock chime all hours.

18 people were convicted in the Illinois Secretary of States office in relations to the licenses for bribes scandal that eventually brought down Gov George Ryan and several of his top aides and sent them to prison.

The only names anyone need remember are the following:

Rev. Duane "Scott" Willis and his wife, Janet

(badly burned trying to save their children in the fiery wreck caused by an illegal driver who obtained his CDL by paying bribes during the corrupt administration of then Secretary of State George Ryan)

The Willis children killed in front of their parents eyes in that wreck were:

Elizabeth and Peter, 6 weeks
Hank, 7
Sam, 9
Joe, 11
Ben, 13

Rev. Don Voegtlin, who delivered the eulogy at the children's funeral, recalled meeting the Willises in the Milwaukee hospital the day after the Nov. 8, 1994 accident. The couple greeted him by reciting a verse from Job, the Old Testament story of a man who loses everything--including his children--but never his faith.

Lived in Kankakee County for a while. Turned out to be just as corrupt as Shitcago/Crook county, just less publicized. Kind of like JUSTIFIED (including inbreeding). Surprisingly, most residents thought that Ryan was an arrogant prick who got what he deserved. Welcome home, George.

he is no threat to anyone. no need to be in a halfway house taking up space that could be used for people that need it.

It opens up some space in the federal prison for Daley and his henchmen who were and are far worse criminals.

From a troll: Rot in hell George? You know what SCC, George is doing his time. Meanwhile, crooked people in our government, purportedly representing us continue their political careers spanning decades selling our city, county and state out for their own political expediency. In fact some of these people are at the point where their representative seats that belong to you and me have become their own property and are to be passed down to generations of THEIR family members. George is paying his time for his crime. No one seems to care about the Stogers, Jacksons, Madigans, Cullertons and all the rest that loot from the rest of us. These people deserve your ire. And by the way, I do not care for Ryan and his crowd having personally dealt with the insurance principle involved with him. (LW) I am sympathetic to the Willis family but the best truck driver in the world driving faulty equipment has a problem. On that day, a guy who should not have a license was driving a truck that had an equipment failure that caused a disaster. His driving skill did not.

Shithead's name is Ricardo Guzman.

"The Reverand and Mrs. Willis were traveling through Milwaukee on I-94 in November, 1994 on their way to their adult son’s home for a birthday party. In their Plymouth Grand Voyager minivan were the six youngest of their nine children, ranging from six months to thirteen years old. The Willis’s minivan struck a piece of the taillight/mudflap that fell off a tractor trailer driven by Ricardo Guzman. This piece of debris was a two and a half foot long section of steel bracket. The truck piece punctured the Willis’s gas tank and the sparks that resulted from it dragging on the ground ignited the minivan's gas in the tank.

"Only one child, thirteen year old Ben, made it out of the van. Reverand and Mrs. Willis were severely burned trying to rescue the other children, but the others perished in the flames. Although his hair was singed off and his lips burned, Ben asked about his siblings before he was flown to the burn unit. He died the next day after asking the nurse to hold his hand and pray with him. Unfortunately, she couldn’t because of the severity of his burns.

"One of the most shocking findings of the investigation was that the driver, Ricardo Guzman, couldn’t understand radioed warnings that the mudflap was about to fall off, because he didn’t speak English...the driver was able to get a commercial drivers license only because he paid a bribe in the form of a campaign contribution for then Illinois Secretary of State George Ryan."

The Governor is back home. Anyone know what happened to this Guzman? Prison? Deported? What?

I made the mistake of buying his first book. It was the most poorly written, poorly edited book I've ever read. An he never really accepted responsibility for his actions. He played the "I'm an alcoholic" bit. Didn't give up anything, played the victim. I don't think I even finished it because I couldn't stand his "poor me" bullshit.

BTW, how long is this fucker going to keep his security guard? If the twirling tutu insists on providing him security, let him hire a guard from Veritas or something.

Maybe they ought to include the security detail in the 200 officers they plan to put 'on the street.'

Ryan's Inspector General, Dean Bauer, ignored the evidence given to him by an investigator investigating the License for Bribes scheme and then ignored the evidence and immediately closed down the investigation.

The government shitbird Bauer escaped trial because of his "bad" health.

Is he dead yet? I doubt it.

The hubris Ryan exhibited now looks like a canary in the coal mine as to how out of control and corrupt government and gov't oversight agencies are.

Not all, but too many.

Since Ryan we've had Madoff, Corzine, MF Global, Perrigrene Financial, Benghazi and Justice Roberts' rewriting the Obamacare law to make it legal opposed to
correctly declaring it unlawful and sending it back to Congress to be properly and lawfully perfected, as our legal system, when properly followed, dictates.

Then again maybe Kelo vs New London,CT was the first in our face sign that tyranny is on the rise.
