Years ago, I purchased an eleven unit apartment building on the north side of Chicago near the lake. My real estate agent said that our taxes were too high and that he knew a guy. He talked talked to a guy downtown and our taxes were reduced 75%. Shortly after that, the fed put several in jail for corruption. Things have not changed

Bob we lived in Chicago for 10 long years. I kissed the ground in New Orleans when we finally got away. Carol Mosely Braun is all I have to say about Chicago.


Wrigley field was fun. I didn't like anything else.

Gosh, Bob, solid anecdotal evidence.

Well, that, and the fact that every right-winger KNOWS without a doubt how corrupt Chicago politics is, even though they couldn't have told you who Mayor Daley was 5 years ago, is enough to convince me.

Actually, on second thought...I think I'll actually use my brain, and not simply fall into the right wing narrative.

You might want to read the book Boss, by Mike Royko, a long time columnist with a Chicago paper, The Sun-Times I think. He was no right winger. The book was an indictment of the corrupt machine run by RJ Daley Sr.

Gosh wtmoore1, solid, liberal head in the sand.

Well that, and let's talk Blagojevich, Mafia, Union thuggery, etc. Geez. Talk about brain washed. I'm sure you have fine, upstanding politicians that get paid by the back door every week. You sir, are an uneducated buffoon.

Wtmoore, why begin using your brain now? You seem to have made it to liberal adulthood with a perfectly unused model which should sell well. Chicago has been notoriously corrupt since I was a kid some 50 years ago, and well before that. The Daley machine perfected the model which a succession of pols have followed. Fact that 2 guvs are in the pokey is not an accident. A lot of the mayors should be roomies with them.

yeah, you use that brain if you can find the dark hole where it resides.

In 2004, a nephew of Chicago’s then-mayor Richie Daley got into an altercation off of Rush Street, the Windy City’s alcohol-fueled playground for revelers and romancers. Taunts were thrown, obscenities exchanged, and in an instant, a kid from the suburbs, David Koschman, who was just 21 years old at the time, fell backwards, his head making an audible thump as it contacted the street.
