Lart time we had a political corruption figthing U.S. Attorney, Illinois had U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald to thank.
He stood up to Establishment Republicans like House Speaker Denny Hastert insisting that a local Republican not be named.
Tribune columnist Kristen McQueary notes that the investigations going on now arw the result of President Donald Trump’s appointment of John Lausch to the office.
She further observes that liberal Democrats exhalting in the twisting in the wind of regular Democrats will have a hard time giving Trump the credit.
Her column gives insufficient credit to the FBI, I think.
She asks Illinois voters how one-party rule is working out for them.
