"A $200 million fine after admitting that they arranged jobs contracts and payments to madigan's associates to try to influence him and promote their legislative agenda So at about the same time attorney general batan is pushing this bill and trying to negotiate with ComEd the indictment against madigan The recent indictment alleges that speaker madigan is trying to get the utility to put one ochoa who is a former chief of the metropolitan pyramid exposition authority in an ally madigan's name to the comet board of directors and to get a $5000 a month contract for a former Chicago alderman So he's trying to get this done and in April the speaker is telling a former democratic lawmaker from Quincy commented lobbyist Michael mcclain He's telling him to kill the bill on behalf of the utility This is what the indictment says In exchange for getting somebody on the board and this is the deal they're striking that madigan's buddies are going to get jobs and madigan's going to because mannequin people who are totally familiar with how the legislature worked on her madigan is that the bills only advanced with his blessing There was no way to get a bill through that he didn't want and it was very difficult to kill Bill but he did want So when he decides that he's going to work behind the scenes to kill his own daughter's Bill and people have pointed out that this is almost Shakespearean and it's betrayal of his daughter and illustration of how he worked and how yeah but see here stop right there because that's one of the points of the story made but I don't think I was intrigued by the fact that the tribune was intrigued by the fact that his daughter wanted one thing and he wanted something else Now granted whether he wanted sounds illegal and unethical But suppose they were both on the same moral plane I don't know that he needs to do anything that his daughter wants even if she's attorney general He should do what's best for the state So the fact that he betrayed his daughter doesn't bother me so much as the fact that this just seems so blatantly wrong and illegal I got to take a pause here but come back and talk to me a little bit about this I think that the likes of a Mike madigan or an edberg who are the govich have felt that it was hard to know what you can and can't do in Illinois Look you do this for me I do that for you That's the way the game is played and it's not even a game That's just how business gets done everywhere And the madigan case it seems to be different than that doesn't it The Burke case too but I mean these to me clearly cross the line It's completely unethical It has to be illegal if that's what was happening So what's mad against take on this is my question Is he saying like Blagojevich did hey it's a gray area or is he categorically saying that he didn't do that We'll pick it up here in a minute on WGN.

The change follows two FT pursuits this year. Ended in the fatal police shootings of a 13 year old boy and a 21 year old man. Among the new rules, the policy bans foot chases for minor traffic violations and bars officers from separating from their partners If they can't see the person they're chasing. Police Superintendent David Brown says officers had been using these strategies, but now it's written policy and can result in punishment if violated.

We got the idea for this episode. from a listener. Who wrote us with a question. Can i begin by asking you that question. Yes sounds great. So this is a listener unnamed. Diana who wrote that. I've had a baby during the pandemic and he is about to start daycare. He has not been held by anyone. Outside of our household no other adults have ever cared for him although my parents would have loved to help travel restrictions during the pandemic prevented them from visiting. I'm worried for what this means for his socialization. So should she worried. Well it's a really good question actually a common one so this has been a topic. I've been asked to actually speak on a few times. Because i know that parents are thinking a lot about this and worried i guess what i would say is that it is going to be a little bit difficult for kids to transition into a daycare environment. Because it's going to be so new and novel to them now. The reality is that kids always find it hard transition into a daycare environment because it's new and novel to them so that's not different than how life was pre pandemic but i think the big difference now when kids are are doing that switch over into day care is that they haven't had a lot of interaction with other people and they're going to be thrusted into an environment where everything is really really knew and the interactions are really new.

How are you? I'm doing well. Well, good. Well, it looks like the election is over and the soldiers air turning on the general. Ah, well, uh, I just got a statement. If you're referring to House speaker Michael Madigan, I am referring to the party chairman right yesterday. Dick Durbin said that he hurt the party on the ballot today. Governor Pritzker said that he should step down his party chairman. And speaker Madigan just issued a statement saying We will not step down as Illinois Democratic Party chairman quote. I'm proud of my record electing Democrats who support workers and families and represent the diversity of our state. Together, We have successfully advanced progressive policies that have made Illinois strong Democratic state with super majorities in the Legislature. Illinois is the anchor in the blue wall that has been reconstructed in the Midwest. And I look forward to continuing our fight for working families, is chairman of the Democratic Party of Illinois. That's unquote that statement from speaker Michael Madigan. So let the fighting begins. I mean, how what will happen here if he's not going to go on his own with a call? A meeting of the of the party to oust him, Or is he gonna stand control? I would say As of right now he's going to stay in control and truly In the days right after election. There's one thing that Mike Madigan's known for and that's to be calling all of the Democratic members who were elected or reelected. And ensuring their loyalty for him to be speaker of the House. And along with that comes the issue of being chairman, but that having been said when you have the fact of senior Democratic leader like Dick Durbin, You have the governor who was even though Madigan has the party chairmanship label. You've got the governor Pritzker, who is the titular head of the Democratic Party in Illinois. Both Kind of smarting over losses that took place on Tuesday. But the graduated rate income tax among those when you've got them kind of banging the drum. You can be sure that there's some now political cover. Or others to call for him to step down. Step away from the party chairmanship from speaker of the House or both. I was trying to remember who his predecessor was. And I came up with Gary Lapel. Is that right? That's correct, and that would have been in what the late eighties think it would even lapel was an aide to Matic and I think, as I recall he was made to Madigan later went on to be a state senator, but they also had a falling out. And that's when Madigan just kind of decided I'll take over party chairmanship rather than donating it out to somebody else. Well, the Pritzker and Durban have. Ah, Couple of legs stand on, right? I mean, they advertised against every Democrat by using like Madigan and the depth and the party didn't perform. I mean, they'd lost seats in the little House. That's exactly right. I mean, that's that's kind of what use this. You know some real credence. Here is the fact that on DH even wrote in the Tribune today about how this There were sparks of a rebirth of the Republican Party. Basically, you know party had been written off for dead and Tuesday actually provided some sparks of a rebirth. Therefore, for the GOP, you've got the fact that you have this close, contested race out. Far west suburbs and ex Urbs in the 14th congressional district with born Underwood against Jim over Wise, and nobody nationally Republican gave over ways any money. She had a huge money advantage. You've got the fact of in the Legislature. You've got ah, at least two seats that Republicans are picking up in the Illinois house, despite the fact that Madigan here under all of this controversy over comment. He had hundreds of millions of dollars that you Sprinkle out candidates, and he ends up maybe with a net loss of atleast two seats. So let's and let's let's talk about that a little bit. Let's Goto Underwood over wise because over, Weiss declared victory yesterday. It's and he's up by about I think 700 votes or so is that over No, it's not over. In fact, Underwood just had a press availability Be Azuma a few minutes ago where, she said there's a least 18,000 mail in ballots that are yet to be counted. Some in McHenry County son in Lake County. I don't know if the number is accurate or not, but I do know that there are a substantial number of votes that are out. In the Lake County and as you've seen actually on the TV and the presidential the mail in ballots, even though you know virtually everybody got an application for a mail in ballot. This is something that Democrats of traditionally worked very hard at, and they mail in ballots to return tend to favor the Democrats mean bygones. Biden's Malin has been 75 80 per cent of some places yet, but you gotta remember to and Illinois was a bit different in the fact that we Had as part of the cove. In response, we sent out like applications to virtually everybody who voted in 2018 general election, 2019 mayoral election and the 2020 primary asking if you want to vote by mail, so that helped drive The vote by mail push in Illinois. So it's not the traditional like what you're seeing in these other states that you're watching in these battleground states. Those were largely democratic driven efforts, and that's how it was. It has been in Illinois up until this year with the covert expansion of mail and phone and I did not realize that so where you're seeing in, you know 75% returned. That's because the party mobilized to get them ballots. That's correct. Okay, that's correct on and that that still and that was still a technique that was used here in Illinois. But it's I'm not sure that the numbers you see for those presidential ballots going to Biden if those same kind of numbers hold true here in Illinois when it comes to out uncounted mail in ballots, But they will They will favor a Democrat. It's just to what extent the I want to stick with the Democrats in and Mike Madigan, but just make a quick aside to Sherry boost owes who looks like he's going to hold onto her seat. I mean, it's it's unheard of for Incumbents pretty much to be unseated. She was in charge of getting House members elected for the Democrats. They lost seats nationwide as well. So her position they're probably has threatened..

A couple light poles were down with that accident. In sports. Here's Kevin Powell. Hello, Steve. Yeah, we're following. Ah, The Bears had another positive test today that forced them to cancel practice and shutdown. Hellis Hall. Matt Maggie's supposed to us speak with reporters any minute now. I don't think it should impact Sunday's game against the Titans, considering we're having Thursday night football today. With between the Packers and 40 Niners, who both had Players placed on the Koven 19 list, but we'll see it. Ahh, We have sort of bears play next Thursday. The bit with the Bears play Sunday Titans, But I'm just saying, I don't think this should impact the scheduling for that. They've had two players earlier in the week placed on the Koven 19 list. And then another player testing positive. Today. Kim Gordon is watching the news. And there's a lot of it today. There is a lot, Steven. We actually could have a winner in Pennsylvania tonight, which could and this whole thing once and for all. Maybe But we're still you know, watching other states. Arizona, Georgia. Nevada says they're not gonna have any more results for till tomorrow. So this could still go A few more days. We knew they were so lazy in Nevada, you know, get it all. We're going to go there a little bit later in the programme, In fact, later this hour if I can Look at my notes were going to go to Pennsylvania coming up with Michael. Sure, we've talked to Michael before Chip Yost is in Nevada and we'll talk to him about an hour from now to get the latest and then Brian it and again in Georgia. You know, he was with us yesterday as they watched the votes being counted in Atlanta, aren't you guys? I can't watch anymore. And I can't stop watching that. I can't take it. I don't know what to do. I'm getting a little tired and count in the same boat. As you have done. Those turning is bouncing back and forth last night, and then I'd go back and then I can't take this, though I put on a movie, and then I'm back watching election crazy. It's just crazy. Crazy is when they're like 85% or 92%. It's like how come it takes him so long to get the rest of their percent? Well, it just drives me crazy, Larry. They have to count all the votes. These airboats that you have to tell someplace there opening in them with letter opener. I know seriously where was that we were talking about that was Landa with Brian? Yeah, Georgia because a lot of them have machines that opened up the envelopes. But in in Georgia, they're opening them with with little little letter openers. We'll even has those anymore. I don't know. But it's I can't you know when you sit there, and you're watching the same thing, I'm speaking for myself anyway, watching the same thing over and over. They're saying the same thing and just waiting for these colonels or nuggets there. Whatever a vote totals to come in, and it's just excruciating. For whatever reason people have been fascinated. I don't know why. Because this isn't a new thing. But there's been a lot of chatter on Twitter and social media about the massive touch screens that a lot of political analysts have been using. Who's the John King on CNN? The maps the math Kornacki on MSNBC. I don't know who it is and Fox, but Yeah, and they keep bringing them up and then streaking down that bring it like I know what Fulton County looks like. I could now walk around Fulton County just it's burned in my brain. You could tell us how to get around. Exactly. I could tell you where the Arby's are where the chuck e cheese right there with the old stadium used to mean you know, it's just it's just too much. So Kim. We heard from President Vice President Biden earlier today, where he appeared presidential talking about the covert 19 and said that he was confident that he and Kamala Harris would win when it was over and urged calm as well. Yeah, he did. He, you know, once says that democracy can be messy sometimes, and we just need patients. It's Ah, It's not. It's a discouraging to here. Leaders urging calm as if because it's needed. So are we going to hear from President Trump? We don't know. I heard that that we will know he's tweeted out that he would win if All the legal votes are counted, but he'll lose if illegal votes were counted, which is probably what vice President Biden was referring to when he said to remain calm. Yeah, Go ahead. No, no, it's I was I was listening to you. We'll hanging on your every word state. Everyone does. All right, So we're going to take a break. We'll talk to Rick Pearson about the Madigan stuff because you know, it's Dick Durbin, the senator kind of turned on Mike Madigan last night on W T T W and you just heard Governor Pritzker do it as well. You know the Democrats Despite the fact that there was talk, this was going to be a sweep election. The Democrats lost seats on the Illinois House. They may well lose one or two seats in the Congress is well, that's not the way a blue State is supposed to behave right now. Mary's looking at weather in traffic..

So what you have with this heightened scrutiny with Mike Madigan over the federal investigation of Kam ad and how comment has acknowledged that It gave jobs and contracts to Allah allies of Madigan and effort to win his favor. Madigan says he was unaware of it. He's never done anything for any personal name or guard Lis of that.

Do you know that it hasn't been called? And it won't be called Underwood released a statement saying that you know Let's respect the vote counting process. I'm not sure how money mail in votes were outstanding. And you know, as we talk about nationally with the presidential probably a little bit of patients here because Under Illinois law ballots postmarked by November. 3rd to be counted up until November, 17th two weeks and they're still valid, so when you get into those kinds of margins They were probably going to be some movement on a daily basis. Those ballots come in, but I don't know how many. How many mail in ballots are out there, But you could assume Democrats have always been stronger in their mail by mail ballot program that it could favour the Democrat among those returning I hear you're going to get a nap at all this afternoon.

"Now look. ATT news. Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan says he will not testify before a special committee looking into his conduct connected with Commonwealth Edison. The committee was formed at the request of House Republican leader Jim Durkin and his men to pro Madigan's activities related to comment. In a letter yesterday, two members, Madigan called Durkin's actions politically motivated. Com Ed entered into a criminal agreement with the Justice Department in July to pay a $200 million fine for its role in a bribery conspiracy in exchange for cooperation in an ongoing investigation. Part of that agreement meant Com Ed admitted it and engaged in bribery with Madigan in exchange for favorable legislation. North Riverside Park Mall in Berwyn will reopen today. The mall was closed yesterday afternoon after a man was shot inside on the upper level Common area. Here's WG and Steve Roxton with more. Police say two men were arguing over a domestic related matter when shots rang out at about 3 15. Investigators say a man suffered two non life threatening gunshot wounds. Officers detained two men, one of whom is believed to be the shooter and a traffic stop near the intersection of Harlem Avenue and 16th Street in Ber one after Friday's shooting, there have now been three shootings at the mall in the last four months.

It was badly damaged in a fire early this morning, It happened at the Stingray Auto spa in the 4700 block of West Chicago in the Austin neighborhood.

Her spirit is accomplished Scholar of Alagoas teacher Ah, very sharp and careful lawyer and I think the the song total of all of her accomplishments and excellence is Maybe you're just an outstanding member of the court.

The president says he'll announce the name later today, and an Australian company has produced a seaweed based dietary supplement for dairy and beef cows that eliminates 80% of the methane content emitted by the animals. The company's called future feed. And if only 10% of global cattle herds consumed the supplement. It would be the equivalent of taking 50 million cars off the roads. The supplements based on a species of sea we called aspirate cop sis. It's been enough efficacy trials for the last five years and now deemed safe for lifetime use in cows. Five. Investors have already put 4 $13 million to allow future feed to establish its full supply chain. The company expects to see commercial volumes of the feed additive supplied into the Australian beef and dairy market by mid 2021 with global markets to follow. Now look at W. J. In sports.

"Are free to pursue their own investigation in the House Speaker Michael Madigan's role in a bribery scheme. Involving come and the Republicans very happy about this Democrats. Not so much I would imagine, however, there seems to be a lot of ifs on what they can ask for clarification. Let's go to one of the guys who broke the story. Peter Hancock From capital News, Illinois. Peter Good evening. How are you, sir? I'm well, John. How are you? I'm OK. I understand that Chris Welch is probably happier than Tom Demmer or any other Republicans in my right. Well, I think it's probably the other way around. I mean, if you look at the letter that US Attorney John Lauch issued on Thursday, it seemed to give them kind of a green light to go ahead with the investigation. And there were some kind of narrow will guard rails. You know. Please don't ask people what they told the grand jury. Please don't ask people what they told investigators. But beyond that, you know you can Ask whatever you want. Ah, Chris Welch, the chairman of the committee from Hillside that there seemed to interpret that Ah, little more strictly, he seems to think that you know, you really can't go much beyond what's already been made public name, rank and serial number. Yeah, on the Republicans are like, no, I think we kind of got the green light to ask whatever we want in the Republican, while the Republicans obviously don't have the majority on either side, especially on the house, so So they can't call witnesses, can they? Well, yes, I can. And in fact, on the first day of the hearings, uh couple of weeks ago, they put out a list of people that they want to call to testify and to provide documents. And just earlier today, representative Welsh said he did in fact, send the letters to those individuals and they've now scheduled the next hearing for Tuesday. September 29. Now, whether or not there will be any witnesses at that hearing, and we don't know yet, but they are calling witnesses. To come in voluntarily and asking them to voluntarily provide certain documents. We don't know what exactly which documents they want. But the letters are out there. So if they have the hearing, and do you think that there's going to be some sort of attempt In the courts to stop the hearings from in taking place. I haven't heard anything along those lines. I think what you have right now is kind of Ah partisan effort. This is a political process is not a legal process. The Democrats want to, you know, severely restrict what questions are asked and what information has brought forward. The Republicans would like. You know, quite a bit more leeway, so we'll see what happens in that. Yeah, This is an interesting committee because even though Republicans are in a super minority This committee is evenly split their six members three Republicans, three Democrats, but any motion requires a majority, so the Republicans need at least one Democrat to come over and support them and whatever they're trying to accomplish. The people that sit on the committee, both Republicans and the Democrats. I know a couple of names, but how entranced are they with the ideology of their party? I'm sorry. I couldn't quite hear that. Well, I mean, is there would would any Democrat one of the three Democrats side with Republicans or vice versa? I'm not seeing it or, you know, not at this point. Uh, each of the Democrats on there are pretty loyal to Speaker Madigan. On DH. All the Republicans on there, mostly attorneys, and they're out there to get whatever they can get. Saying Let's just reset for the listeners are joining us for talking with Peter Hancock from Capital News, Illinois. So the US attorney for the Northern District here has said yes, sure, Lawmakers are free to pursue a Madigan probe. What can the lawmakers call witnesses that have not been interviewed by the feds? Or only those who have or how wide of the net can they cast? Well, you know, that's kind of an interesting question, and it brings up an issue of what I would call Federalism. Uh, the U. S. Justice Department is in charge of prosecuting federal crimes. But at the state government has a certain level of autonomy. And one of the things they have The right to do it in the General Assembly is to police their own membership. Ah, the investigating committee is not after evidence of a crime. They are after evidence that Speaker Madigan engaged in conduct unbecoming to a legislator or which constitutes a breach of public trust. It's a very different standards. It's a very political standards. And so, uh, you know, the committee is free to call whoever they want. The only guard rail here is that they shouldn't tread. Directly into the federal investigation. Would they be able to call the speaker himself or not? He is, in fact, one of the people on the witness list now whether or not he chooses to show up. We don't know yet He does still enjoy the same test amendment privileges that everybody else has. You can't compel him to give testimony against themselves. But even Governor Pritzker has said that Speaker Matic and they have a lot of questions to answer and he should get out there and answer Speaker must appreciate that. I well, I I don't know. I don't talk to the speaker. All that Mr Brown is a decant must appreciate the Yeah. Yeah, well, I think it's interesting. You're right. It's a political exercise, not a legal one. But it certainly does. Kind of move the ball down the field a little bit. I'm sure that's what exactly what Jim Durkin was trying to accomplish. They had that petition on August 31st. And now the special investigating committee was full. Warmed, and you're right. It's three and three, which is unusual in that to regard so It'll be interesting to watch and see exactly what kind of teeth they can bear. But I'm going to go and take the under. Unless what are you hearing about the former lobbyist? McClane? Where does he sit in this? I'm not hearing anything directly about him. He obviously is one of the people. That Democrats or that I'm sorry that Republicans want to call. Ah, he was a longtime lobbyist for comment, and a former lawmaker and very close confidante to the speaker, So he probably has a lot of stuff to say. Whether or not he wants to say it to this many is yet another question. We don't know. Peter Hancock. Thank you for the update. Much appreciated, sir. Good to have a good weekend. Peter Hancock Statehouse reporter for Capital News, Illinois on double the dose. Joe Biden had a very interesting Covad 19 influence drive in town hall last night, lots and lots of softballs from Anderson Cooper and the rest of folks over there, however. The Washington Post of all papers pointed out that there was some not gas necessarily but tow overstatements. We have a few of those to pass on.

Now, state representative Stephanie careful wit of us we go on Kelly Cassidy of Chicago have become the third and fourth House Democrats to call on Madigan to step down. Kivowitz says that eight years of guilt to be proven, but I think leadership in the House is very important. And we cannot have a speaker of the House under FBI scrutiny or even listed in FBI documents. It's just simply it's just simply wrong, and even Governor Pritzker is questioning whether it's time for Madigan to go these allegations of wrongdoing by the speaker. True There is no question that he will have betrayed the public trust. It would take at least 16 House Democrats to turn Madigan on Madigan to bring about his removal. Republican leader Jim Durkin introduced a resolution for Madigan's immediate departure. But Madigan Then just refused to call that for a vote. Meanwhile, Madigan has released a statement saying, in part, I've had many candid conversations with members of the Democratic caucus on this matter. The feedback is positive and demonstrates continued support for me and my leadership roles. I have no plans to resign. An eight year old boy is among two people shot on the far South side. Police say the boy and a woman were outside on the sidewalk last night in the 700 block of East 132nd Street. When a man approached on foot fired shots at another man standing nearby.

So is McLane considered to be the linchpin to get Man again. I'm putting very bluntly. But if he goes, do you think Madigan goes I think that's the only way It would happen right? He he could be the start of the blocker for format again. But the difference, he says he's not. Going to flip. But the tribute is also reported that his bones have been wiretapped.

The governor talked about this after the comet plea agreement when Madigan was implicated. And he was asked about the appropriateness of Carrie Solesky heading the Illinois Commerce Commission, which regulates com. Ed, so I want to play you his soundbite and get your reaction.

"Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, implicated tonight in a federal bribery scheme. The U.

Lauch does not mention Madigan by name, but he refers to him as a public official, a person who the feds say demanded that Com Ed give jobs, contracts and money to Madigan Associates. In exchange for Madigan, helping to pass legislation that comment wanted the feds have issued subpoenas to Madigan's office. The speaker says that he did not do anything wrong. But Chuck Audi from ABC, seven talked with former federal prosecutor Ron Safer. Who thinks that the feds could be close to charging mad again. I would be feeling very, very nervous. They have good together dot for a quid pro quo. What is always so difficult in a bribery case was establishing that action that was taking By the political figure was influenced by bribe rewarded by a gratuity. In this case, they had come very close to connecting. All of those were basically Edison admits that it did hire Madigan political allies to get favorable treatment from the Legislature. Let's get more from Bill Cameron Mining Comet but not charging Speaker. Madigan's suggests that if there is dirt on Mike Madigan, his lieutenants so far are not writing him out.

Illinois Planning On Reinstating Drivers Licenses for Those With Non Moving Violations

"We're speaking of speaking of a larger cities in the state of Illinois Caroline and she's a Democrat representative lawmaker in Champaign we're talking about this plan to reinstate the driver's licenses of people who've lost them because they had done paid tickets non moving violations lot of parking tickets stack up next thing you know you've lost your driver's license you know it's a little surprised to be Carol I'll get to the criticism of this in a minute is that people evidently were complying with that that is their license get suspended so then they they do stop driving because they don't have a license is that what happens the majority of people not only do stop driving but they also lose their job because most jobs require a light in to work there sh and we saw that in forty two percent of individuals who lost their jobs it was due to suspension of their life some people say I'm I paid my ticket first of all I don't double park when I do I pay my fine and that's the way the game is played why are we why are we giving these people the break that I didn't get well you know it's interesting thing that we start in some of the research that we found not just in Illinois that injures in other places where you have significant income disparity you have to address this as a fair you government not at least of individual should we the moment that we're in right now and today happens to be the king holiday and change your mind that an unjust law is no law at all she and so if you have matched the disparity in income yes one person is Schomburg go L. hurt me because the pay their tickets with no problem but people who are just basically getting to or from work on public transit in trying to make sure they can feed their family on job cannot she hurt them in many many ways that others in Elmhurst the Schomburg may not understand and so it is important for us to look at equity it's important for us to look and stuff this and this was a significant so this issue because the majority of the suspension for black and brown people from the south and west side of Chicago and they were struggling to get from point a to point B. before their ticket or be for this expansion and and I also want to add that the city of Chicago this video Champaign or Urbana who signed it I did a parking ticket that may cost you thirty five cents and I I don't have any quarters mommy right so I spent that go along with the twenty five dollars who decided that that's what the penalty should be in the first place interesting question seven seven three said they can still boot you so that would be up to the municipality if they have a policy that your car sitting there it's got some tickets on it they boot your car that can still happen but you'll you will retain your driver's license do I understand that correctly Carol that is correct however I do believe that again we need to look at books and books is one of those things that I'm interested in studying as red as red light cameras all of the things that suck the kidneys and the cold out of the pocket the poor people we need to look at that government should not and this is the issue of liberty government should not you is the forty to abuse its citizens and this is what those kinda log do it abuse assistance I understand that and I don't even argue that but I do also hope you acknowledge that some of our listeners are thinking the citizens have an obligation to follow the laws and rules that everybody else is it will be more injurious to you if you don't have the means but we should all play by the same rules well we certainly are not playing by the same rules and I know we don't have time to argue that point yeah but clearly there's a disparity in income access and equity that no one can argue on either side of this this so we have to do what we can as legislators to bring justice and equity and balance balance all of the laws that we have been in this case this law as it currently existed prior to the final the bill did not met out equally and it certainly didn't represent justice clan had a question you're on WGN hi glad you're on the air why is it that a person who has the ability to pay the ticket why would they pay the ticket if there's no ramifications just because they're working and have the ability to pay they should feel some sort of just a moral responsibility to pay the debt I mean you're saying that it should be equal you're you're setting up to different levels of law for individuals based on their income and you know in your own words just said because people are poor they shouldn't be able to be struggling well the people who are wealthy enough to be able to pay the tickets shouldn't be penalized why are you setting you're setting a double standard in your own words that you don't want to do hi doesn't make sense why would I want to hold on hold on yeah yeah that's you're point go ahead good girl I actually I actually have an agreement with your caller I believe that people like you and I in your caller who pay taxes for the role that we drag one already that we already provide our income to the government to function and then on top of a government that something called meters are tollway make additional dollars I don't actually think it's right well that's how they maintain the roads I mean not good meters in tolls are going to go away I think that the principal point he's making is that if we're going to have forgiveness for people we should maybe have you know that that that won't be equitable that's not fair either then right I mean if you can't pay okay that's tough for you I'm sorry about that but I can so my the only one that has to pay but but that's not what we're talking about here you still owe the debt the point is are we going to let you keep your driver's license that's what this is about right at and we are going to let you keep your driver's license and I still do have to pay the ticket by the way yeah yeah even though they give amnesty to those who may not have all the money at one point they allow you to set up a realistic payment plan let's think about this previous payment plan if it is Chicago requires you to put down a down payment so it was always back yeah yes your color baby could pay the down payment but others really could not and that is a function of government government decided to put this except the down payment there sh and eight at the conditions for which a person could not pay sh and now we're saying no you cannot spend that like this sh the city Chicago is reforming how it is collecting your parking tickets so yes you still got to pay that parking ticket now well I I completely agree with you about setting a reasonable means for people to pay back if you have a hundred dollars in tickets you should pay a hundred dollars in tickets but it shouldn't now become a thousand dollars because you didn't get it done in time I'd be happy to get there I'd be happy to give fifty the hundred to be honest with you the these ballooning payments I you're right somebody just made that up and you might as well charge people a million dollars Hey Chicago want to charge him a million Bucks and then all of our financial problems will be solved no wait it won't because you can't get a million dollars from people they don't have it yeah I don't have it let's let's do you realize up in bankruptcy court yeah but what about this report but not me what about this Eric you're on hold on a second Eric hold on a second are cold on a second there hello did you get that Eric you have some say on the radio what was your point Eric said the parking meters Carol are there for a reason they're there because you don't you know you need you don't want people to be there all day long it's not just a money maker it's also a way to regulate flowed you understand that I I'm certainly understand that but I think you're you're a collar and others should look a little deeper into who owns the parking meters that is true we we so we should not have sold those things at the sky way along time ago I agree with you on that its it's goes into effect July first is that right representative that is correct that the jury stated putting provisions in place to notify those who would be eligible to have their eyes since reinstated and you go to took that chance July one twenty twenty nice to talk to you we you and I have not met before by the way do you have anything to say I was just reading in the Chicago Tribune over the weekend about how Mike Madigan has this gigantic series of funds that he's able to control and he spent over four hundred thousand dollars in legal fees in the last few months the Tribune has a large editorial it was it yesterday or today saying he should step down from his speakership role do you agree with that you know I have been here I have I'm from Champaign Urbana so I don't I don't get sick of it should be clear here but I have not seen that story I think what is happening in Springfield and you'll see in the spring fashion that there would be many people calling for significant reforms and ethics reforms and I think that will fall in that same category yeah well that's not you saying yes though I'm not saying yes to lose his job just stepped down as speaker you're not calling for that yet home yeah I don't have I have not seen it at all and I have been called for anything at this point but what I am calling for is that there needs to be significant reform and ethics as well as campaign finance reform took all of that it's all tied together that you're describing representative and it's nice to talk to thanks for joining us on

That's after these tech headlines. The journal reports that snap which was once seen as a viable competitor. To Facebook is struggling after CEO. Evan Spiegel ignored warnings about a redesign that proved unpopular with usership and the share price falling analysts and employees are raising questions about whether his trust your gut management instincts can help pull the company through the journal takes a look at the changes ahead as snap aims to grab more users in and beef up the information it collects in two thousand nineteen Facebook's top conservative takes a new power position on at the social media company. The journal reports that Joel Kaplan has emerged as the sites protector against allegations of political bias, and you often serves as the decisive word internally on hot button, political issues in particular. Mr. Kaplan now has say in whether certain news feed products, get launched an area that has long been the purview of Facebook's engineers and product teams. City University of New York coders hoped to fill Amazon's queens headquarters, New York officials call H Q to a boon to the city's university system which graduates thousands of students with tech degrees. Each year the company's agreement with New York provides a three billion dollars in city and state incentives to Amazon bringing twenty five thousand jobs in the next decade. Amazon also plans to bring seven hundred jobs to Long Island city by twenty nineteen coming up how fortnight triggered an unwinnable war between parents and their kids. The value of fortnight's maker epic has swelled to nearly fifteen billion dollars from less than one billion in less than six years. The Wall Street Journal reported such in October. Furthermore, the takeover game is not only reshaping American spend their time. But also how they communicate. And the Wall Street Journal's Betsy Morris reports that it may also care at family relationships in ways that few if any video games have done before. So what exactly makes this game show powerful in a special journal feature some young players explain the current fortnight hype? Everyone's playing all of our friends like it's everywhere. Toby got it. He didn't really play. He'd never played. It is agree. You should get it. So I downloaded it. And we played it was really fun. The Matthew had it like you got like a week later. Now, we play never got our first win, the congress Cullen going for the next lane next one if they fighting game animated, there's no blood, and I like the fact that it's like. You just jump on a map bat Oreo. It's really immersive to and it's always different it's net. Like every game isn't going to be the same. I just fell in love with it. Right. When they showed it to me. Jamie Madigan author of getting gamers explains. The key social components of the game. That are changing the way young people communicate most of the most popular games like fortnight, and others are social so you're playing within against other people. You're communicating with them. You're talking outside of the game about the matches. You had last night or coordinating schedules? So that you can play together today after school, and it is a much more interactive social experience than it has been in the past. I've a bunch of friends on here that play and they won't get on when gets off one gets on. And then I play with gets on which they keep saying, it's a different way to interact socially now than like, for example. Go into part, I'd say, it's it's really cool because it lets you communicate with people that you don't really see that much. Parents are noticing the change in social behavior. Firsthand fortnight is a big part of. Of his social life, and of what makes them happy these to play more of a variety of things. But at some point it was just fortnight. That's it for him and all his friends you really wants to play with his friends are on. So he's not as interested in playing when they're not on. And then there is the already addictive nature of video games to contend with. And how some say fortnight takes things to a new level people like activities that make them feel like they're mastering something and getting better at it. They like activities that make them feel important to other people to the extent that that activity satisfies those needs people are motivated to keep doing it and come back to it. I sometimes I feel like from. I'd say I play enough via wearing after a couple of months playing you might get a little dicta to it. It hits a lot of buttons with in terms of reward. And we have many kids that we can compare him to there seems to be such a trend in some similarities between the mall in terms of not really. Wanting to get back to it wanting to play it for a long period of time. He just seemed to really be fixated on this game. Even when he wasn't playing it. You get nervous when you see your kid staring at a scream incessantly for four hours. I'm concerned that it's very addictive, and that it takes so much time away from everything else. You're trying to be the good parent and not be too permissive. You don't want this to get out from under you where it's something that you're having constant battles about. And where you feel like as a parent. You don't have a say in any any limit setting with it. The journal notes that research on the impact of video games is inconclusive on one hand it found video games to boost visual acuity processing speed and decision. Making on the other hand studies also link aiming to poor behavior and lower school performance. It's a weighty topic. Again, check out more WSJ for a special feature an in depth look at. The issue. That's it for the tech news briefing reporting from the newsroom in New York. I'm Tanya boost does thanks for listening.
