Now the Truth is "Regrettable"
- Offering rare public comment on state politics, Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke said Tuesday it was "regrettable" that Gov. Bruce Rauner characterized the high court as untrustworthy and part of a "corrupt system" in remarks earlier this year.
"Well, I think it's regrettable if he said that," Burke said after a speech at the City Club of Chicago.
"I just have to tell you that my colleagues are outstanding legal educators. They've been in the law for their whole lives," she said. "They're good people. Honest, moral, ethical. And I can unequivocally say that isn't true."
We'll agree that Judge Bob Thomas is a "honest, moral, ethical" person, seeing as how he never tanked a kick that we had money riding on, but the rest of them?
This from a woman who is married to an aldercreature who has routinely "amended" the Council record after he votes on ordinances that might present a conflict of interest to his law practice. Can anyone tell us what brilliant legal opinions the honorably connected judge has authored or argued before the Courts?
