The Shake Down School

John Kass

Does the behavior pattern sound familiar? Blago, like other pols we must deal with, take the heat personally and seek revenge. I’m gonna get you mentalities from the shake down school.

Going after Sam Zell and the Tribune editorial staff was just brilliant! Threatening Childrens Memorial runs a close second and selling a senate seat sounds typical of politics in Chicago. Didn’t John Stroger bequeath his seat to his son with the help of locals?

Everything and everyone has a price tag.

Anyone disagreeing with a politician in this state had best be prepared for shake downs, inspectors, defamation of character, harassing phone calls, frenetic little wannabe spying episodes and inflammatory mailings.

I can’t understand why everyone is so shocked.

Blogger Note: The super sell-out Commissioner Suffredin is encouraging us “to attend the upcoming public hearing on the 2009 Cook County Budget, to be held Thursday, December 11, 2008, at the Skokie Courthouse, 5600 Old Orchard Road, Skokie, IL 60076, beginning at 6:30 pm.

"I encourage all citizens who are concerned about Cook County’s healthcare system and tax policy to come and share their views with the full Board of Commissioners," said Suffredin.”
