U.S. Atty Targets Democratic Party Corruption Today

With the sentencing of former Secretary of State George Ryan's Chief of Staff Scott Fawell a second time today, perhaps U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald thought he should balance out the partisan scales.

He released the following press release this afternoon about the indictement of Niles Village President and local Democratic Party boss Nick Blase. He likes to call himself a "mayor," but he isn't.

Maybe the hidden text of the two events is that both of the power parties have corrupt elements.

If you would like to read the whole press release, it is posted at McHenry County Blog.

Maybe Fitz will go after Don Stephens in Rosemont or his undicted co-conspirator in the Fawell case Jack Dorgan--some real small village corruption.

Stephens is like Daley. Too "connected".
They may toss accusations around, but they'll never in their lifetime be put in jail.
