Another Crooked Democrat Goes Down

Nick Blase, 47-year mayor of Niles and former Maine Township Democratic Party Committeeman copped a plea admitting to getting $420,000 in insurance kickbacks over the last 20 years.

The power mayors and village presidents can develop over the years can be awesome and the temptations of such virtual absolute power are obviously great.

Blase is 80 years old.

And, if you want to see the only video on YouTube of just indicted Bill Cellini, you can find the links here.

Too bad this didn't happen in Rosemont. But they eventually bough corrupt Big Jim Thompson and Dan Webb.
Corruption in both parties.
The Combine.

It is good that Bill Cellini got indicted.
Hopefully Jack Dorgan and Brad Stephens and the corrupt cops get indicted.

Jack Dorgan has too stop getting drunk and wanting to drive and fighting the valet and Gibsons.
One day Jack Dorgan will drive and hit a little girl and kill her and stop the gravy train in Cicero.
Bomba used to be a cocaine dealer.
Jack Dorgan (and sometimes Brian and Michael) have to stop drinking like they are crazy and fighting and driving and fighting with bartenders, waiters, and valet people when they are trying to help them not get in trouble. The Old Man would of never allowed this stupid behavior which can hit the paper or the Feds or cause local criminal charges if someone got hurt.

Dan Webb,  10:13 AM  

Maybe Patrick Fitzgerald should look into George Theo's gumball machine in Navy Pier and other kinky deals.
McGaffers extortion and shakedowns.

AA meeting,  4:55 PM  

After the election, please send back Michael, Jack and Brian to our meetings. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
