Politics 101 by Bernie Stone

Every year, 50th Ward Ald. Bernard Stone spends all of his menu money, mostly on streetlights to help deter crime. But he admits to one fact of political life.

"You take care of the people who take care of you -- you know, the people who voted for you," he said. "That's not Chicago politics, that's Politics 101."

Got a chuckle when I saw the report on Channel 2 News last night. Can we interpret it going forward that if our candidate doesn't win, we don't pay certain taxes since Bernie clarifies the rules?
