Homero Tristan is a Daley brown noser and liar. Hoffman is the real deal!

Pack your bags Homero, I do not believe you. Hoffman hasn't given me a reason not to trust him. Whereas, you and your type, those under control by the mayor, have proven time and time again that you are corrupt. If Hoffman says you were lying, then you were lying.

Gotta hand to Hoffman, the guy's stones as big as Daley's. Wonder how much longer he'll be around. Too bad this City, County and State are so imbedded in corruption and cronyism, stand-up people rarely come out on topp. Go get 'rm Hoffman.

So what? I could care less what parade he was at, so long as he does his job, and it appears he is doing is job effectively. Now, if only the City Council would authorize him to also investigate them, he might need a bigger staff. But have to wonder, why don't the aldermen allows Hoffman to investigate them if need be?

Tristan is not even a good lawyer. A good lawyer should be able to lie and get away with it. No games stop Daley's circus.

Do I sniff a "Hoffman for Mayor" campaign coming up?

Nah, it'd never work in Chicago.

Too bad.

Diogenes and his lamp would have a real problem finding an honest man in Chicago's city council. The powers that be will find some way to get rid of Hoffman.

If a Daley appointed guy wants the inspector general fired, then it would seem the inspector general is doing his job.

Daley is surrounded by liars, cheats,do-nothings,etc. When someone speaks up and displays truth---they are made to look like fools. Find a real job, not one that was given to you. One time with Daley and you are marked for life.

Hoffman's laying it all in the open for all to see before Daley forces him out.

A Daley personnel manager, under fire by the COURTS for not correcting the patronage issues, says the inspector general is reckless? Reckless is a good description of all Democratic leadership in Illinois right now, especially in the City of Chicago. Parking meters, garbage collection, patronage, budget crisis ....

Did I miss anything?

Was he doing the same thing you were doing at the parade?

I guess when the light of justice is starting to be shone in the dark places of corrupt Chicago offices there will be those who bare their fangs in resistance. The exterminator has come to remove the vermin deeply entrenched in this city.

Reckless? I guess that's the new word for justice in Chicago politics. Mr. Hoffman, be as "reckless" as you see the need to be.

He's nothing but a publicity wh*re. He's a nobody who wants to be Attorney General and the ONLY way for him to get name recognition is by releasing explosive reports. The problem is that he flat out makes stuff up.

Just look at the guy and tell me he's not a slickster.
