What's wrong with politicians from Illinois ?

Two strikes so far, what about the third ?

Quote:
From The Hill:

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted "tea party" protests yesterday, labeling the activities "despicable" and shameful."

"The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs," Schakowsky said in a statement.

I'll tell you what's despicable and shameful. Right here:

CHICAGO (AP) — The husband of an Illinois congresswoman pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee.

Robert Creamer, a political consultant married to four-term U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, could face four years in prison on the two felony counts when he is sentenced Dec. 21.

....

Creamer, 58, a prominent Chicago political consultant, was accused of swindling nine financial institutions of at least $2.3 million while he ran a public interest group in the 1990s.

This is how Washington DC defines "despicable":

Exercising one's First Amendment Rights.

This is how Washington DC defines "acceptable":

Committing a FELONY (to which one pleads guilty rather than face what must have been overwhelming evidence in open court) by swindling people out of $2.3 million dollars as the spouse of a United States Representative.

Jan's my girl. I lobbied all my patrons for her in order to access a county parking lot adjacent to one of my earlier eating joints.

Nobody but outsiders are offended by Chicago corruption because they don't get a piece of the pie. Fucking Repugs want to stick their nose in but it will never happen.

^ That's the truth too. Anyone who wants a piece of the pie can have one, you just need to get involved.
