This article in today's Chicago Sun Times, is a glaring example as to how things work in Chicago and Illinois, to the detriment and at the expense of the average citizen. It's got it all: a well connected non-profit religious organization, favored friends and developers as well as the wife of Blago. (Reportedly, Patti 'Bleepin' Blago, got her job with the Chicago Christian Industrial League thru recommendations from Gery Chico, Daley's former Chief of Staff and Fred Lebed, a business partner of Roland 'Tombstone' Burris, who is on the CCIL Board of Directors.) It's unbelievable, outrageous and unfortunately never ending and it's all 'on the back' of the taxpayer. This way of doing business, coupled with our wasteful, over sized, bloated City, County and State bureaucracies , is why 'it is what it is'! Boy, do the 'people' need to wake up!
