Politics - Chicago Style

Just so you know, you shouldn't have been surprised at how things are going in Washington these days. American Thinker Blog: Chicago's Handgun Ban and RICO

This details some of Chicago's problems. Alderman and corruption. Police as adjunct to The Outfit. (That's the Chicago Mob, for you uninitiated.) Since 1973 31 alderman have been convicted of felonies. It ends with brief discussion of the FBI's Family Secrets investigation.

Missing is the state - level shenanigans. But I think the memory of Blagojvich are fresh enough in peoples minds.

Vote buying. Arm twisting. Smear campaigns. Secret deals. A nearly complete disregard for the rules. Sound familiar? [Hat tip to Geek with a .45
