Was it ironic or just the way "Chicago Works" that in 1997 Joe Moore could find the cojones to make such self-serving, anti-administration comments, while working the system himself to great advantage?

It just keeps on and on, year after year. Even now, while making the most of campaign contributions from suspicious sources, Joe curries favor with the Mayor, by joining with several otherwise anti-Daley aldermen who recently chorus'd praise of the Mayor's current budget proposals. The quid pro quo (from the Mayor's side) was a campaign endorsement that amounted to no more than a footnote in an article about Alderman Shiller. Ooo, ahh.

But there is much worse to report.

As recently as this year, 2003, Joe Moore has taken campaign contributions from one convicted arsonist and who knows how many other bad landlords in the 49th Ward. A bit hard to reconcile with Joe's claim that he is the "toughest alderman in Chicago" when it comes to dealing with slumlords. See MudZappers for more details and more issues haunting his campaign.
