Ald. Walter Burnett's Clout City series...

Yeah I wish I can say he's writing this series but no. Clout City basically take a quote from Ald. Burnett (of the 27th Ward, home of Secretary of State Jesse White) and then they publish it. I'm not totally sure why they target Burnett. It was easier to target a Ald. Burt Nataurus or Ald. Arenda Troutman or even Ald. Dorothy Tillman and only because these individuals either put their foot in their mouths or they're just colorful characters or loud.

Still what is it about Burnett. Well I saw this post from June 8th, Clout City says this about the Alderman...

Walter Burnett, alderman of the 27th Ward, is earnest and straightforward. Or maybe he needs a filter.
Hmm is that why? Look at today's Burnett quote talks about Burnett's support of a certain north side team (well Burnett ward is near north side so it seems appropriate) and his unwillingness to bring it up with the mayor. Well today's comment elicited some scorn by the Clout City readers. Most of the comments suggest that he's terrified of Mayor Daley.

I don't know what to think, but this still makes for some entertaining reading doesn't it.
