Fitzgerald, of course, had the audacity to put in a court document that Hired Truck guys helped Emanuel win his 2002 primary election campaign against reform State Rep. Nancy Kazak.
And, Emanuel holds grudges.
Getting even and helping the Bi-partisan Combine avoid more indictments for the endemic corruption in Illinois means Fitzgerald has to go.
That is the question.
Some have suggested Fitzgerald could be named Attorney General.
Hey, that would do the trick.
Then, senior U.S. Senator Dick Durbin can pick a “safe,” yet respectable replacement who will not continue to play the role of Elliot Ness.
