Chicago Still Suffers from Corrupt Image

Full story: NBC Connecticut

Shortly after prosecuting former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was convicted on 17 federal corruption charges last year, Reid Schar watched Jon Stewart joke about it on "The Daily Show." It was funny, and that was unfortunate.

that's what you get when one party along with unions control everything for too long.
look at the south side, over 400 kids shot this year, S jackson that dumb ass reporter tells us Chicago doesn't have a violence problem.
How many state and city office are in or just getting out of prison because of corruption charges.
Jessie jackson should be in jail for prtending to be a leader while negecting the deaths of all those black kids in his neighborhood.
But ya all keep electing those democrats and ya get what you voted for corruption union excesses and nothing but more bad schools, no shopping run down neighborhoods.
But park wrong or get a parking ticket and they will track you to the grave, but kill a kid and nothing happens.

460,000 illegals in Illegalnois, sucking taxpayer dollars that could easily lessen the pressure on taxpayers if the illegals were booted out of the state.

I bailed out of Illegalnois when I retired.

Guess what? My adopted state doesn't abide illegals, and unlike Illinois, this state's budget can afford to pay for our state policemen's ammo.

Oh, and our elected Representatives, Senators and governor actually work for the people, not for themselves. How nice it is to be in a conservative state. I never realized how 44 years in Illinois sucked until I got out of it.
