Disgraced ASA Looking for a Job
- Sarah Naughton left her job as a prosecutor after an off-duty run-in with police that included her berating and allegedly swatting at a cop
But that widely publicized episode hasn’t discouraged the politically connected lawyer from trying to get back on the public payroll — in a job working with law enforcement officers.
Naughton’s unusual brush with fame began back in September 2012.
A prosecutor with the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, she was arrested by Chicago police for an off-duty incident that followed a day of drinking and involved a scuffle with a North Side shopkeeper.
Just a reminder:
A "scuffle?" As we recall, she bit the shop owner, didn't she? And the abuse recorded and uploaded on YouTube was definitely "R" rated. Amazingly, a crooked Cook County judge cleared her of all charges although an ARDC hearing is still pending. But hey, if a criminal record can't keep you from political office, why should a little thing like biting a store owner, resisting arrest and generally making an ass of yourself keep you from a government job? It seems that the private sector isn't willing to take a chance on her.
