Chicago Argus on the Shaw brothers

A very interesting piece about how the Shaw twin's wielded their political power in the Chicago area. From their days on the far south side of Chicago and then moving to the south suburbs with the culmination of the election of Bill Shaw as Mayor of Dolton. Even a mention of the political struggles between the Shaws and the Jacksons (ie Jesse Jackson, Jesse Jackson Jr, Sandi Jackson, and associates).

BTW, on Thankgiving Day it was announced that Mayor Bill Shaw had passed away from cancer. Funeral arrangments are set. The pic to the right is of the late Mayor Shaw of Dolton.

Here is another link of interest on the story from Marathon Pundit!
