29th Ward Alderman Carothers indicted!!!

Hmmm, did he learn anything from either Ousted governor or Arenda Troutman.

I just saw the press conference this goes back quite a while. Seven years I thought Patrick Fitzgerald (our US Attorney who arrested Ousted governor when he was still Governor, in addition, to prosecuting Troutman, Tony Rezko, former Gov. George Ryan, and a special prosecutor in the case of Valerie Plame during the former Bush administration) said in investigating Ald. Carothers.

Well it just shows that we have a long way to go if Chicago and Illinois is to ever be cleaned up. I'm going to avoid saying for now that it'll never happen. Although if the culture gets cleaned up enough where "theft of honest services" is shunned instead of celebrated then we've gone a long way. I'm going to venture to say that there are always going to be those public servants who would take bribes for one reason or another.
