Bullshit [Dec. 7th, 2011|02:43 pm]
Greetings Fellow Comstoks!
Blago gets 14 years for mostly talking about shakedowns while every investigation into the corruption of Daley administration has been quietly closed, including any potential civil action over the epic bullshit of the parking meter deal.

Fuck that. Guy's guilty but there's dozens of major executives who should be doing more time.

Thank you! I had missed that. It's very apt.

Is there any way to break the power of political machines?

This is a key question. Do you have any thoughts or ideas? My only idea is electing independents, but this has only worked at the alderman level. Voter apathy (the election was held during a cold snap) meant there was no chance of electing an independent mayor.
