Answer to “Who Said This?”

The quote is from a Chicago Tribune story yesterday.

It revealed what was said in depositions from a suit filed by Mike Madigan Democratic Primary Election Jason Gonzales.

The quote again:

“This guy’s trying to destroy your soul.

“He just doesn’t want to defeat you.

“He wants to make sure that you never come back again.”

The person speaking was Jason Gonzales.

  1. Good thing Madigan doesn’t have his tentacles in mchenry county po…

    …oh, crap.

  2. It’s part of a long story in today’s print edition.

    A very good summary and update of investigations by government and press investigators.

    I would not bet against Madigan going down.

    Burke, too, is smart.

    But years of getting away with venality large and small makes criminals sloppy.

    With a entitlement comes a sense of invulnerability.

  3. As Lord Acton said, “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

    Or more accurately, according to the Acton Institute

    “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.”

    “Despotic power is always accompanied by corruption of morality.”

    “Authority that does not exist for Liberty is not authority but force.”

    “Everybody likes to get as much power as circumstances allow, and nobody will vote for a self-denying ordinance.”

    “Absolute power demoralizes.”
