The shame of this is that the voters who repeatedly put them in office voted for all the wrong reasons. Why is it that the voting public continually fails at putting in the "best person" to do the job of representing the people? Both of these clowns deserve prison time and their embarrassed constituents should be shouting it from the roof tops. But I doubt that will happen. They will probably get their support to run again.

I would kind of like to know how Jackson, jr. kept getting reelected because he is not well liked and neither is his father.

I was talking to some older ones and they noted that even when Blagojevich got popped, it was surreal-a token gesture because they are all doing the same thing and he just happened to get caught.

Answer: resignation to the status quo. There is a mentality in our large city that accepts corruption "because everyone does it" and "as long as he/she passes some of it ($) around". We need an active, educated voter who understands that you do get the mess you vote for when you don't pay attention or just vote for who they tell you to.

IDK, even though this is not from Chicago it represents precisely what it boils down to.

I will steal a line from Builder-we are living under two different sets of laws I'd say that Chicago is very well educated.
