THE WATCHDOGS: Another ‘Hollywood’ Ricky Hendon grant under scrutiny by feds

PHOTO: Former state Sen. Rickey Hendon poses with Dean Nichols and Reggi Hopkins, both of whom were criminally charged last week. The three are holding a mock state grant check to Hopkins' not-for-profit group, the MIW Foundation, for the West Side Music Boot Camp

The Illinois state senator known as “Hollywood” could barely contain himself.

It was 2007, and Rickey Hendon had just secured $190,000 in state funding for the West Side Music Boot Camp, which touted itself as a program “to empower local performers, producers, promoters and other members of the community with the critical knowledge and skills needed in order to succeed in today’s competitive music and entertainment industry.”

“Hendon . . . says he is really excited about this program — both as a senator and as a singer-songwriter who grew up on the streets of Chicago,” says a 2007 news release that’s still posted online, along with a picture of Hendon presenting the organizers — including his former campaign treasurer — with a poster-sized check from the state of Illinois.

All Smoke and Mirrors by the Regime, before Election time, to make it look like they are actually carrying on impartial investigations. NOTHING will happen. Daley off the hook also. Typical City, County, State, Fed corruption. All bought and paid for. NWO is here.

Anyone know where Jesse Jr. is? The MEDIA Whores sure don't say a word. Why does a man with severe Mental Issues still have a say so in making the decisions of State of Ilinois business?

Understand Ricky is bunking with "missing" Jesse Jr. at some undisclosed location. Ricky seems to have the same "bug" that JJJ has. That Feditis seems to be catching our politicians by surprise these days. Maybe Ricky can write some minstrels songs and do a duet with JJJ and take it on the road to some other undesclosed locations.

$190,000 thrown down a useless rathole. No wonder this state is fucking broke. And that is just the very very tip of the corrupt iceberg in Illinois. Countless millions have been thrown away just to keep these corrupt useless whore politicians in office. The state legislature scholarship program was another gem. Instead of giving those grants to needy bright kids it was used to take care of "connected" sons a bitches who had clout. A fucking disgrace but nobody is going to jail over that one.

People ask me why I moved across the state line, I tell them I couldn't stand feeding the thieves in Illinois government anymore. They just steal the money and laugh about it. Throw the bums out, all of them and see what happens, or just move.

Illinois is a shithole, Chicago is the pearl in the crown of this shithole. Business is fleeing, pensions are sinking, if you live there you are taxed to death, you pay more for gas, food, insurance, everything. But in return you get to live in the murder capital of the world - where the powers that be will not let you carry and defend yourself.

Take a good look at the three demented mutts holding up that card board check. Would you give any of these three any taxpayer money? I think not.
