Chicago police were investigating a burglary at the offices of attorneys for former Gov. Rod Blagojevich in which at least one computer containing undercover recordings from the sweeping corruption case was stolen, sources said.
The break-in took place about 4 a.m. at the law offices of Sam Adam and his son, Sam Adam Jr., in the 6100 block of South Ellis Avenue, police and Sam Adam Jr. said.
Contrary to early statements by a police News Affairs officer who referred calls regarding the burglary to the FBI, the FBI is not involved in the investigation, FBI Chicago office spokesman Ross Rice said in a statement.

How convenient for people on the other end of the calls. I would imagine, however, the feds got a copy with earlier warrants.
Richard Nixon was a cub scout compared to the Chicago political crime machine.
All we did in Nov 2008 was to move the Chicago thugocracy machine to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave when Barry Milhous Soetoro was immaculated.
Bill Clinton is starting to look honorable.
The “G-Man” is the man!
Unbelievable! What are the odds against something like this happening, huh? Evidence vanishes ... no signs of a break-in .... It’s almost as if the burglers had a key or something and knew exactly what to take. It’s creepy, that’s what it is ..... creepy.
For any prosecutor who hope to enforce the law. I would hope they are smart enough to have a backup.
A beermaker and the Son of Sam.
“I would imagine, however, the feds got a copy with earlier warrants.” Um, if these were not democrats, you might haqve a point. But given that a criminal enterprise is now completeely in charge, it is more likely that the ‘trust you will not dispose of this vital evidence in your psossession’ is at work and the material was only available on those computers and in that safe. The excuse of course will be that the attormey was trusted to maintain the evidence for federal use ... and a stern rebuke will be issued and promptly forgotten and the affirmative action bastard and his Chicago bitch squad will sakte free like sinkEmperor clintoon. They’re building a mythology for their affirmative action bastard and it must not be tainted don’tchaknow.
Chicago is truly a special place. Had we an honest press, we would be spinning with disbelief.
Nixon lost the election in Chicago didn’t he?
Must be the White house Secret Service was watching the building. Yeah, that’s it! /sarc
Oh wait, its Chicago.
Business as usual.
It’s the Chicago way.
This is down in Barry’s old barrio—just south of the University of Chicago campus. Lots of crime down there, you know—esp. just south of Midway Plaisance. Lots of gangs. Aw schucks, prolly just a bunch of gangbangers looking for stuff to sell for drugs, dontcha know. Prolly just looking for computers with personal data to use for identity theft. Why I know someone who lives down in that area. Why, golly gee, his condo was broken into and they took his computer and used the tax information stored on it for identity theft. There were a couple dozen burglaries in the same neighborhood.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. Garden variety burgling, yessirree Bob.
Obama been there
Well, actually, the best analysis I’ve seen is that, contrary to the “consensus opinion,” it wasn’t a deliberately engineered fraud in favor of Kennedy but the fact that there was a downticket race (I forget which one) that the Daley machine really wanted to affect—someone who was on to machine and threatened their future who had to be defeated, so they rolled out the big guns to control that race and Kennedy cruised to victory on the coattails of that race. I don’t remember the details, but some long-time political observers who know this town inside and out say that’s what happened. It’d probably be in the archives of TomRoeser.com blog.
Thanks for the info...still think Nixon showed class on that one, not wanting to put the country through a long, drawn out fight to prove fraud. Chicago political machine is frighting.
