Most of America thinks Mayor Daley runs Chicago.Those on the inside know that’s not the case.The man who runs Chicago from behind the scenes,since the early 1990’s, is Alderman Ed Burke,Chairman of Chicago’s Finance Committee.Burke went from being an errand boy for Alderman Roti to the most powerful elected figure in the state of Illinois.In a corrupt state like Illinois,the guy with the most money in his campaign fund is the man at the top.In Illinois,it’s not Chicago’s Mayor Daley or Governor Blagojevich but Alderman Burke.

Is Rezko Talking About Obama,Alderman Burke,and Congressman Gutierrez? Prosecutors talking to Rezko, seek to delay sentencing
The Chicago Sun-Times reports:
.But, one has to wonder what Rezko is talking about because Rod Blagojevich(Public Official ‘A’ Rezko Trial) and his wife were on the Feds radar? Is Rezko talking to the Feds about Obama,Cook County Board President Todd Stroger,or how Alderman Burke did “legal” work.Or Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez’s excellent real estate deal:
Rep. Luis Gutierrez got a deal on a riverfront town house built by Antoin “Tony” Rezko, a developer and prominent political fund-raiser now under indictment for an alleged kickback scheme involving state pension funds.
Simply amazing! Where does Zero fit in with all this corruption in Chicago?
Not discounting what you say, but, is it really possible that Daddy Daley’s machine totally died? I find it hard to believe that FOD’s (Sr. & Jr.) are not at all involved.
Rezko to be sentenced Jan. 28; Blago trial testimony unlikely (the fix is sealed?)
