KLEPT, county raided: what's the significance?

The Capitol Fax Blog (Rich Miller) has an entry today and had one yesterday.

I hesitate to call political hiring in Cook County government an "open secret" because nobody really even pretended jobs were given based on anything but political connections.

After going after Chicago and the State of Illinois, Cook County appears to be in the crosshairs of the U.S. Attorney, Northern Illinois District, aka The Terminator.

Who are the big fish to be indicted and convicted in Cook County government? How will this investigation affect Cook County government? Will services get better or worse?

  • Question.

    What happenened to going higher up the ladder at City Hall?

    Going over to Cook County because of news reports is just a cop out.

    This is akin to Bush leaving Afghanistan wihtout finding Osama and then invading Iraq based on some bull.

  • Flash news release,

    Responding to the need to be all and fix all in Proviso Township and elsewhere, Carl Nyberg has decided to step up and become the "terminator" and fix the City, County and State Government.

    When asked what inspired him to take on the huge task Carl stated,
    I have let my hair grow until I had the courage to take on everybody, and since I need a haircut I thought now would be the time.
