Troutman – Dancing with Developers

Giving Chicago Aldermen life and death power over development in their wards has led to many an indictment.

The most recent to succumb to temptation seems to be just defeated Alderwoman Andrea Troutman.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald was kind enough to allow her to be arrested before the election. Now, he has charged her with 13 more crimes.

It sounds like a good ol’ Chicago Democratic Party shake-down.

The same dance we have seen before, except this time a female is taking the lead.

Or, perhaps Troutman had a better analogy when she said,

“Well, the thing is, most alderman, most politicians are hos.”

Who says we need a federal Equal Rights Amendment?

So, why isn’t some Republican making a big deal about this?

This was published first on McHenry County Blog, where you can find out (probably exclusively) which prominent Illinois Republican is getting out of jail on Saturday, plus the latest in obstruction of justice charges brought by McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi.
