She's just as guilty as he is. Too bad they can't get along - they sound perfect for each other.

So, she's in with the mob but still working in the narcotics unit. Nice. Is this reform, Anita? Or do I have the story wrong.

And now I know why I have such a hard time getting felony approval.
The Outfit has always had a "girl" or "guy" on the inside.
I would be a good reformer SA Alvarez, and move this tainted soul to some less sensitive area of the SA's office!

Based on this article, it sounds to me like this Richie Catazone guy and this Harry Aleman guy already were not exactly the nicest people. But I would hate to think how much worse they might get if they start hanging around a lot in situations where by associating with Patti Simone they might also regularly be associating with a lot of her co workers who are lawyers.

All I can say is this is a mess. You got the mob working in the states attorneys office. Now if this is not enough to call the WORLD Police because I have no idea what the federal folks can do about this. Heck, are they hooked up also. Is this why you cant even beat a red light ticket. All these systems are designed to screw the "average person". Unless you are mobbed up, it appears you can't get a fair shake on anything. Another thing, why would this lady jeopardize herself and people by leaving her husband messages like that. What has this world become?

It's conclusive.

There are NO "honest" people in Cook County government.

This is how biased the family courts are against men. He was the one who needed an order of protection against her.

Public servants that don't play fair? What a shocker. This woman is a complete hypocrite. Women ALWAYS think they are in the right, one way or the other.

It's no big deal for a woman to get an Order of Protection. They hand them out to women like free copies of the Sun-Times.

I sat through one of those OP hearings, and women were getting orders (ex parte - meaning the man is NOT there to defend himself) because, as one woman put it,'he gave me a really mean look.'

Another OP I watched was granted because the woman said the man came to her place of employment every day, implying he was stalking her. When the full hearing was held (and the man was present), we found out that he came there because he worked the second shift!

The OP order is this case is less important than the lengths (and depths) women will go to get custody of minor children in divorce. When you get custody, you get a steady, monthly stream of tax-free income which you cannot be ordered to account for. Spend it any way you want, the court doesn't care.

And if your ex stops paying - for any reason - the State will provide legal help to collect. The State does so because the state collects a bounty from the federal government for every dollar it collects in child support.

If there was a statutory presumption requiring equal, shared custody, these two would have to find something else to fight over instead their children.

The Mob and the states Attorney's office are locked together. This is why the Federal Government must prosecute Gangsters with clout.

What else can be expected from a politically connected daughter of a DEM committeeman of Palos Township Sam Simone.

Sam Simone makes $90K/year as a PICNIC TABLE INSPECTOR for the CC Forest Preserve District, thanks to Todd Stroger and John Daley.

Picnic table inspector making over $90K/yr so that Todd Stroger will have a political fixer and godfather in Palos Township.

Anita Alvarez, who also relied on Sam "The Inspector" Simone for her election, is not going to touch his patronage hired daughter and risk angering the old man.

And so it goes.

Friends and family hiring plan continues.

We get stuck with the bill.
