Absolutely, Mark McCombs didn't do that by hinmself and actually the papers reported 3.2 million was recovered from the attorney's office that he worked at. The milked the citizens of Calumet
Park and saw them as a "Cash Cow" with all of the bogus fines that Mark McCombs instituted on them. Since Calumet Park recovered the money from a felonious act shouldn't the fines that Mark McCombs be rescinded?

America would be a lot better off if they prohibited lawyers from running for any kind of political office.
