Gyrfalcon: Speak for yourself. I just quit a job because they wanted me to behave unethically.


THIS.

I turned down a (very well-paying) job because it was unethical.

I lost another contract with client because I refused to cook the numbers on a statistical report they were selling to their customers.

Told a number of people to go fark themselves rather than give them kickbacks on subcontracting work.

I assume the ethics board for Chicago was responsible for setting the proper values of bribes...

If you're going to have corruption, it should be organized corruption.

When I ran a factory in Chicago, we maintained a large petty cash fund to correct code violations. No tradesmen were paid in this process.

I believe it was Otto Kerner who ended up going down after a business owner tried to claim bribes as a deductible business expense.

Cheeses H Rice: I'm from Chicago and I'm getting a big kick outta these replies.


I am too. Belmont and Austin. Then out to DuPage county. These fools don't actually believe that Chicago cops and aldermen are all for sale.

Leftists froth at the mouth when presented with the unfortunate fact that, despite their lies, "Yes Virginia, there is vote fraud..."

By the way, Pres Farkwad, Number One Chicago Son had his ass handed to him tonight at the debate,.. DU posters in particular and Democrats in general are having a psychotic episode.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: daxxenos: Odd that regardless of this, Chicago's Number One Son is leading in cooked polls, which are never doubted by the Media?

And therfore thusly has it been asked, HERPITY DERPITY DERP HUURRR???

fusillade762: 12349876: daxxenos: FTA: That in the 20 years of it's existence, it has never managed to find any wrong doing, while in that time 20 aldermen have been convicted on various charges...Odd that regardless of this, Chicago's Number One Son is leading in cooked polls, which are never doubted by the Media?

It's a big conspiracy. Even the Wall Street Journal and Fox News polls are in the tank for Fartbongo.

Not to mention all the odds makers. Are they fudging because they WANT to lose money?


The Mob likes having a White House it can buy whenever it needs a favor. It's the Chicago Way.

I've bought Chicago cops and aldermen, Judges cost about $20,000, now. It's just that a President is out of my price range, Ask Blago how much a Senator costs...

Vectron: The Board's members and its Executive Director are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council. Board members serve staggered 4 year terms without pay and are independent, and can be removed only for cause, with the written approval of remaining Board members. The Board meets monthly and is staffed by seven full-time employees, including its Executive Director.

Is it legal for the mayor to do this?


The law does not enter into chicago politics. Especially when there is a pesky ethics panel to dispose of.

The funny part is that its CHICAGO. Mitt Romney said he could win Illinois if he got TWELVE PERCENT in chicago. hes not going to do it. Nothing up there NEEDS to be corrupt, it just is.

Chicago has traditionally been "troubled" by corruption. I imagine Blagojevich and others are just the visible part of the iceberg.

Chicago Ethics Board, sounds like a nice no-show job to have.
