Steve Stanek’s Pithy Writing Scores Again

“If George Ryan gets out of prison because of Dick Durbin or any other politician, it will send yet another message that political connections defeat honestly, justice and fairness in government.

“Ryan treated us citizens with criminality and contempt. He should pay the full price the court demanded he pay.”

That’s the message from McHenry’s Steve Stanek that the Chicago Tribune featured on its op-ed page under poll results showing 80% of almost 2,300 respondents disapproved of Democratic Party U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s suggestion that former Republican Governor George Ryan’s 6-year prison sentence for political corruption be commuted to time served.

Any commutation would have to be granted by outgoing President George W. Bush.
