"Corruption With A Capital C..."

"A former high-ranking aide to Mayor Richard M. Daley was sentenced Monday to almost four years in prison for engineering a fraud scheme to cover up political patronage hiring at City Hall. Robert Sorich, 43, showed no emotion as federal Judge David H. Coar also fined him $10,000 and delivered a sharp tongue-lashing before imposing the minimum 46-month sentence federal guidelines prescribe.

"The offense is corruption -- corruption with a capital C," Coar said. He said that "for people to owe their jobs to political advancement rather than performance on the job stinks." <more>

BAM! Give my best to Jake and Elwood. ;)

I went on the Chicago news paper and yes my blood pressure rose just little with the name Patrick until I saw the last name. Now just how much corruption is in Chicago. It's like it never ends. I only think of Roger Ebert when I think of news and Oprah as entertainment. Now I have to look for crime and conviction. Fitz keeping up with the criminals is a job in itself. I'll try to keep up or I'll have to depend on SPB's up date bottom line information.

you're not the only one being glad it was cancelled otherwise we all had to come together to join up to write a book about:

"How it would have not affect our lives if I hadn't read it"

Hi Jackie, I replied to your post earlier on but I guess Mr.Fitzerald is just moving to fast with his new threads to keep up..

I'm also depending on SPB to feed me with the latest and breaking it down and extracting the essence ;-)

Oh my..."I am taken aback by the suggestion that Chicago is so corrupt that we have to bring in somebody from New York," Durkin said.

Good job all:-)

Only time I agreed with Mark Furmen when he comment about the movie was "What? How I planned to kill your mother?". Wow, a guy like him has to point it out?? Geez Murdock ...

Is that the only way to determine what "manhood" is? I thought it meant something more along the line of "respectable" or "honorable" or "one with integrity".

From Americablog:

Bush admits he doesn't know what he's doing in Iraq

Too little too late for the chimpster...Oh, that's right. The decider has decided not to decide. We must respect that. LOL! The chimpster shouldn't even be allowed to be in charge of himself. Now, a straight jacket and padded room should do it. Oh and in the picture of the chimperor wearing Vietnamese clothing, how much body armour does he have underneath???

Good Evening, Justic Bloggers,

Looks like lots and lot of corruption is coming under scrutiny now. Here's more:

Judge: FBI must correct disclosures on evacuation of Saudis after 9/11

Judicial Watch notes that Judge Roberts criticized "the adequacy of redaction descriptions, the accuracy of the sworn statement submitted with the documents, the validity of exemption claims, and other errors in the FBI’s disclosures.

"The FBI’s 220-page annotated production and accompanying … Declaration together do not, as they must, provide sufficient detail or precision about the withheld information … the FBI’s motion for summary judgment will be denied and the FBI will be directed to file disclosures that fairly meet the requirements of [court precedent]," wrote Judge Roberts.

Judge Roberts added that one particular FBI exemption argument "strains credulity."

According to Judicial Watch, US government documents reveal that 160 Saudis flew from the US between September 11 and September 15, 2001."

From NBC News:

Before an elegant dinner, Bush and his wife, Laura, stopped by a mock classroom in a tent on the palace grounds to showcase U.S. aid for Indonesia's education programs. Chatting with youngsters, Bush was asked about his favorite hobby as a child.

"Baseball. I liked baseball. That was my hobby -- sports," he said, before reaching for a more inspirational answer. "The best thing I did was to learn how to read."

LOL! You just heard that from the words of the chimpster: the best thing he did was learn how to read My Pet Goat. The Baskin Robbins Presidency.. ROTFL!!!
