Proviso Probe

Don Stephens

Let's assume that he's not done anything criminal in his life.

He's still a major influence peddler in Leyden Township. Melrose Park straddles Leyden and Proviso Townships. And Melrose Park figures have traditionally wielded influence throughout Proviso Township.

What do you think the relationship is between Stephens and the Melrose Park political elite? Are they ships passing in the night? Or are they in a mutually beneficial relationship?

What is the line between organized crime and political profiteering? Does spending money on non-existent services, like EMM, constitute organized crime?

Sun-Times (Carol Marin) has a column about why Rosemont ain't gonna get a casino. I'm not gonna bet against Stephens yet.

  • Boy, Karl you got a real wild hair up your ass about EMM!
    Let's face it, he's working the system. I don't trust none of these politicans. It's about self-preservation period.
