More Corruption?

  • Federal investigators are looking into whether Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy Brown accepted loans from employees in exchange for jobs or promotions as part of a wide-ranging probe into possible corruption, according to sources.

    A source familiar with the case said the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago has a grand jury looking into Brown’s conduct, including loans she might have gotten from employees “in connection to employment.”

    Another source, speaking of having been interviewed by the FBI more than a year ago, said, “They asked me about personnel stuff. Was somebody paying for a job? . . . Why was this person promoted? . . . Pay to play.”

    Those revelations come as federal agents visited Brown’s South Side house last week and seized her county-issued cellphone.
A fed could make a career out of jailing corrupt Illinois politicians. And they're so dumb it's almost a mercy to jail them.

Do you think they have an Illinois Wing in the federal pens? Hey Dorothy, nobody in the pen is going to call you "your honor". Maybe they'll get you a side-by-side cell next to BB-B. Buh-bye.

Just as sleek and pious as could be, our Dorothy...

"It is the mission of the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County to serve the citizens of Cook County and the participants in the judicial system in an efficient, effective and ethical manner."

Reminds me of the back cover of an old Rules Of The Road booklet, with Secretary Of State Paul Powell sitting at his desk, fingers carefully interlaced. Silver-framed portrait of his mom carefully turned towards the camera, and the shoeboxes of cash in the closet off to the side...

When does the US declare it a RICO case and shut down the continuing criminal enterprise that is Chicago, Cook County and Illinois State Government?

Oh man would it be nice to see these corrupt officials thrown in the slammer for once. These assholes use us (especially here) to keep the limelight off their criminal doings. I hope all these Illinois/Chicago politicians get caught up in a federal feeding frenzy! I'm talking about the courts, mayor 9.5, d brown, alderman, everyone god dammit! leave no stone unturned boys and girls!

Too bad the Feds were never this concerned about the Chicago Police Department. If they had asked why certain people were promoted and how; several aldermen would have ended up in prison. Then review the entire testing process over the years. Remember when Arthur Andersen was conducting the testing to make sure it was legit? They ended up going out of business because they manipulated figures for their clients.

This is an example of an appropriate allocation of resources by the FBI. Illinois Bureau of Tourism should open a politician's Hall of Shame. Think about it, you can fill to capacity with corrupt public servants in power one of those five story industrial building with authentic assorted the various corrections institutions apparel worn by those granted public trust, mug shot photos, video clips of politicians running out of court with the media in hot pursuit for comments, videos of them taking an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution as a public servants, copies of indictments, photos with other elected party officials connecting the dots using a primitive form of link analysis, copies of federal criminal affidavits and associated counts of criminal charges, newspaper clippings of fallen politicians and copies of U.S Attorneys press conferences. At the rate the political class is being picked off by the feds, the tourism people should make plans to acquire an industrial park.

Any bets that the feds already know what's on that phone (Stingray) but they need to seize it to construct a LEGAL case.

Dumber than a box of rocks. This Louisiana refugee is the bane of most practicing attorneys in Cook County. Dorothy Brown is too blame for so much of the dysfunction in the courts.

Why not just do away with Cook County government. How much unencorporated land is still left in Cook County? Let each town, village and city deal with everything themselves.

They have been investigating Dorothy repeatedly for years and have not found any real crime being committed by her yet. I remember a white employee being caught who stole files and took them home and shredded them amid reports that Dorothy had messed up that department with files missing and being un-locatable. Then there was the "pay to wear blue jeans day" that they tried to blame on Dorothy only to find it was the previous supervisor who implemented that policy. What is the reason for these constant investigations? why don't they investigate Danny Davis and Walter Burnett more?

Arthur Anderson and other crooked accounting companies almost made the US go bankrupt. This was revealed in my accounting classes I took in college. They used the wrong depreciation formula.
