Kass on IL political corruptionHe's written extensively on this bi-partisan political combine. And on corruption in the state of Illinois. He even called Jim Edgar's bowing out of the race before it happened. I think it was in that very column too. If you want to see some of these columns you'll have to be registered for the Chicago Tribune.
Corruption was the theme of the last gubernatorial election. And it appears that corruption will be the theme of the next one, too, and of the next Chicago mayoral election. It should be the theme of every election in every part of this thoroughly corrupt state of ours.
The sleaze won't end until the fidgeting stops. And the fidgeting won't stop for years. It's not over. It's just getting started.

Aldermen? Ha! Feds today have bigger fish to fry
