-- FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN DUPAGE EDITION: DIERSEN HEADLINE: Democrats advocate moral relativism and Republicans advocate the rule of law. Some question a recent DuPage County jail study. What percentage of those who commit crime are registered Democrats and what percentage are registered Republicans? What percentage of those who commit crime in DuPage County live outside of DuPage County? What percentage of those who enforce laws are registered Democrats and what percentage are registered Republicans? Tragically, people who have financial difficulties, who are younger, and who are members of certain ethnic or racial groups commit disproportionately more crime than those who do not have financial difficulties, who are older, and who are members of other ethnic or racial groups. Outrageously, Democrats deny that is true but nevertheless outrageously blame all of it on Republicans and outrageously argue that Republicans disproportionately enforce laws against the Democrat Party's key constituencies - those who have financial problems, those who are younger, and those who are members of certain ethnic and racial groups.

-- Rezko trial suggests Illinois state pension fund was playground for political insiders - Mike Robinson
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No one is claiming political insiders dipped into the fund. But money management firms paid big finder's fees to politically connected insiders who helped them get multimillion-dollar allocations, Levine testified. For example, Springfield lobbyist and former Republican National Committee treasurer Robert Kjellander got a hefty finder's fee from the Washington-based money management firm Carlyle Group - which once boasted former President George Bush and other international luminaries among its advisers - for getting a $150 million allocation from the fund. Kjellander got a finder's fee _ not a kickback. The difference: He was not in control of the board and merely used influence to get the allocation for his client and collect his fee. In contrast, Rezko allegedly controlled the pension fund's board and could force the firms to pay kickbacks or see their hopes of getting an allocation killed.)
