Study calls for probing of political corruption in more than 60 Chicago suburbs - Study? How about INDICTMENTS????


Political corruption is widespread in Chicago's suburbs, especially in the black southern suburbs, and requires an inspector general to investigate, a university study has found.

The study by the University of Illinois at Chicago documented criminal convictions or conflicts of interest affecting more than 60 suburbs in Cook and surrounding counties and more than 100 public officials and police officers.

Former Chicago Alderman Dick Simpson, now head of UIC's Political Science Department, led the study, and on Monday said corruption in the suburbs, in some cases, is worse than in the city.

"This isn't a minor problem," Simpson said. "This is a major problem."

The IG could either be created by lawmakers and the governor, by each county, or by a consortium of suburbs. It would cost about $1 million annually, far less than the $500 million estimated cost of the problem, according to the study.

I agree 100% with Simpson. Corruption in the suburb I work for is out of control. Corruption and serious misconduct from the top down. All the connected hacks are milking the town dry. The ironic part is that there are offices already set up to investigate corruption; I.e. FBI, IL. Attorney Generals office & States Attorney. Noboby wants to do their job. These offices only want the high profile cases. The States Attorney and Attorney General are useless, they are controlled by King Mike Madigan. Most of the Cook County Suburbs are controlled by King Mikey Madigan. Simpson has a good idea, but it will never happen in this corrupt state we call IL. I pray everyday that some office will look into the corruption and misconduct.

Dick Simpson jsut has his sudents rehash old newspapper articles and headlines and then stands up as he has diiscovered the Rosetta Stone. He couldn't find corruption with a compass when he was an alderman and just sits bach on his self promotional laurels and his lazy ass.

Is there ANYONE in ALL these Federal, State, County AND Local Investigative Agencies who can investigate their way out of a paper bag ? I don't think so. Incompetence is the word that describes the State of Illinois the Best. The next best word is CORRUPTION.

I miss the old days when the mob ran the south suburbs.

Yep true.
For years and probably still today, C. August Taddeo of Melrose Park ran the western suburbs.
The outfit towns of Cicero, Stone Park, Northlake, Hillside/Berkely, Franklin Park n others recd their marching orders from Melrose.

And the corrupt dumb blacks that run Bellwood, Broadview n Maywood are no better.

As far as the south suburbs are concerned:

Harvey
Dolton
Dixmoor
Phoenix
Burnham
Markham
Bridgeview
Posen (low key, but still)
Worth (low key, but still)
Calumet City
Country Club Hills
East Hazel Crest
Thornton
Sauk Village
Chicago Heights
Ford Heights* (What's left of it. They've pretty much corrupted themselves out of a functioning government.)
Robbins
Crestwood
Alsip
any part of unincorporated Cook County

... I left a few suburbs out only because I don't know the full details about them; probably corrupt as well.

Oh Lawdy, a nog is offended. Jesse Jr. still hasn't managed to get free completely free from his misdeeds. The feds pulled the bugs before anyone really important got nabbed. Maybe your hero in DC might have been tainted. Can't have the newly elected president tainted. Aren't they investigating the hog with the big nuts? Just how many black Chicago Alderman have been incarcerated? So, before you get on your high horse and start babbling that it bees only dem white muf-fukahs, stop for a second and then shut the fuck up. The only reason more blacks aren't in major trouble politically is because you just started to be in charge of something that could generate you illegal taxpayer money. It's Cook County, give it another 5 minutes and it'll change.

I wonder how Jesse Jacksons family managed to get into the beer delivery business? I wonder what ever happened to the millions of dollars that went missing from Operation Push in the 80's? How much prison time did the El Rukns get for their scams from the federal government in the 70's?

So, shut up, put on the dunce cap and sit in the corner. Dope.
