"Of politics for years now Change Illinois board member. He wrote this piece in the Tribune. It reads in part. Raven is no longer perched on his shoulder, the albatross wrapped around his neck, the sort of damage please dangling over his head. Whatever your metaphor, meaning is clear. Illinois's Newhouse Speaker Emanuel Chris Welch, is emerging from the towering shadow cast by the all powerful Predecessor and mentor, Mike Madigan, who exited Springfield. If he wants to make history of his own in the sunlight in several fewer decades, he can embrace a serious of good government reforms Illinois desperately needs and Madigan stubbornly. Resisted. It's a great read and I want to ask any shock as he joins us Now. I was reading this. I'm speaking to you, a stoop Political observer that you are. Andy shot really actually believed that Springfield is ready for reform and well, actually. Accomplish any of better is this kind of wishful thinking. Well, maybe it's a little bit of both. Anna. You know, Chris Welch was was a protege of Mike Mad again, and Vatican actually asked him if he wanted to be speaker. So the skeptics and the cynics who read my column emailed me to say nothing's going to change. Welch is just an African American version of Madigan. That may be the case but listening to Welsh in the first few weeks. And understanding the opportunity he has. I have to believe he will embrace some reforms. Now will he go AST? Far as we'd like him to go? Probably not. But if he wants to actually make a record for himself and be remembered as Maura than Mike Madigan's protege, this is his opportunity. There's a whole world of reform that Illinois deeds. And if he only embraces several of them and actually leads the charge for some changes that make Illinois a better state. He will be a success. Remember, we're pariah state right now. Hannah were one of the worst states in the country in terms of corruption and finances. People are leaving in droves and Government has to get better, or this is going to become a a Somalia of U. S states and this is his chance. Will he step up? I told him to Willie, Listen, That's his call. I like what you did in the article, too, because you don't get sued even the weeds so that people fall asleep as you pointed out, but that you know there's only a certain tolerance for hearing exactly how these plans get carried up. But you do lay out the bullet points and some of the things you feel need to be done, and they're great. And Jerry Mandiri and engender Jerry Mannering. One of them adopt real term limits for legislative leaders. Eliminate conflicts of interest and you go on and on to highlight a little bit of this for us, Andy. Tell us what white how you came up with this list. Well, I think it's fairly. It's fairly predictable. It's been the boilerplate reform issues for a long time when somebody like Mike Madigan could be house speaker for 30 years and can basically block 30 years of reforms than the argument is, how can somebody lied for so long? That's not healthy, so we need term limits for legislative leaders. Chris Welch supports that, he says. But I think we need to go further. And we need term limits for regular elected officials. I think you can stay somewhere too long. Look, if if a really good elected official has to leave because of term limits, Maybe that's unfortunate. But you know what? That person could come back One term later. In other words, you have to take a break, but you could come back. We need new people in the political world because the way it works. Now, these become lifetime Cinna cures for people who are mostly concerned about being reelected, and as a result, they're disinclined to take important steps so term limits is important. It starts with redistricting. Creating Fair district's that don't protect incumbents so people will run for office and we can get a new breed of people at least. Challenge the incumbents. Conflicts of interest. Look, Mike Madigan was handling our tax dollars. At the same time, his law firm was getting tax breaks for big businesses on their property, and we were paying the difference, so that to me is a blatant conflict. We hire him to say to protect our tax dollars not to charge us more because he's making money off clients. That's an obvious one. There are other ones. You know the statements of economic interests that people file in Springfield. You know what Madigan Statement of economic Interest said. It said he had an outside job, but he made more than $5000 a year. That's all no idea what he did no idea who his clients were, how much money he made from them. That's ridiculous. When we put you in office and give you a chance to manage our billions of tax dollars, we need to know who you are in terms of your personal finances. Those are just a few of the things we could go on to election reform. He's closed primaries that result in polarized candidates. We need to open up the primaries making maybe go to a form of what they call ranked choice voting where you basically you know, it's not just one person for party, but there's there's a way that you calculate votes your 2nd and 3rd choices. I'm not going to get into the complications break choice voting. The simple fact is, it's a way to encourage and elect more bothering candidate. Who may work across the aisle. The current system system produces Left wing Democrats and right wing Republicans who barely talk to each other. So that's just part of a very long list. I didn't even get into the financial piece, which is pension reform and tax reform. I could've written 10,000 words on this, but let's see if he will take take some of these seriously and think about what's in the best interest of Illinois. If he could do some of these things, it will restore some of the faith in government and make Illinois more attractive for taxpayers of businesses. And that's what we need, because, as I said earlier, people are fleeing the state in droves, and that's unhealthy. It is unhealthy. It's unsustainable. So you gotta reverse that. How do you do it? We can talk a little more about that with Andy Shaw. I also want to dig into one of the points here. The conflicts of interest piece of it all. Because if you look at the comment, bribery scandal and the federal investigation in the indictment that have already been handed down in the ones that are certain to come, it shows exactly how Springfield works. And how do you eliminate the pieces of that so that that doesn't happen again after you send people off to prison and you slap people on the wrist and people pay fines and tell on each other, and they get who they want to get in. The feds do that? What happens next? How do you change the system? Hey, pie into the thought, though, Andy, I want to circle back with you on that. We gotta check the traffic..

"Hey, Heather. Hey, Bill. Well, not a big surprise that Mike Madigan, who's no longer speaker of the House, gave up his seat in the house. So let's talk about a little bit something to advance the story. What's it going to be like in the house? Greg? Do you think Without mad again, the strongman enforcing party discipline to move the agenda. That's a really good question, Bill. That honest answer is we don't know yet. Um uh, no. There's no doubt that the house is gonna be more democratic. More people gonna have their say, Uh, I would hope that the concerns of things issues like sexual harassment. Whatever gonna move to the forefront. Medic kind of dropped the ball on that. But There's no question that that in this state were kind of used to having really strong types in office in City Hall on in Springfield. And after all these years, one essentially American kind of total war to go what to do and then beat heads together. When I was really important, that factor is gonna be lost now, Uh, for good and for bad, Um, see, you have to see what kind of job the new speaker Chris Welch does. Hey, certainly very capable. Man, but, uh, I have a hunch it in some ways. Uh, the Democrats may at least for a while, uh, kind of room losing this really strong later, who could get the trains running on time rate, The Democrats were famous from time to time for me in a circular firing squad. How do you What do you see the future of the Democrats in the Illinois house? Well, I do believe that there's gonna be growing things. But I also believe that they're all gonna try to unify around Gaby Pritzker's budget here. I believe that it is a partisan budget, and he's taking wax. Had Republicans like calling for closing corporate loopholes, which we've heard at nauseam over the years. If they actually do it. This time, the Republicans will have something to squeal about, which were worried. Will read will unite or will unite Democrats along the way, but I think where it falls apart is on individual. Uh, Agendas. If progressives want X and want to take it all the way to the end degree and you have inner intraparty fights. Then you get the party that you just see all the time and you may be reverting to the firing squad. It's a tough job to walk in. After Mike Madigan has ruled for so long. It's such a high level and high degree of competence and also a high degree of iron fisted miss, too, so he's got to show Chris Walters got to show that he's Flexible with issues. He's got to show him that he's listening to his caucus. And Ah lot of folks in that caucus want a new day, and they're yet to define really what that new day will be. And Heather. Do you think that New day might spoil Mayor Lightfoot's agenda down in Springfield? It's not clear that she enjoyed a lot of success after a mess Agan while their times and offices over overlapped very famously. A year ago, the mayor did not get the changes to the bill. State transfer text that she has been looking for, and initially the bill that allowed US casino to be Built in Chicago would one that the mayor did not favor and she had to go back and get a study done to convince state lawmakers that you knew what she was talking about, and that Bill needed to be revived. And if she got that revised bill through, But you know, after a significant delay in a lot of stock, I'm sure so if anything like that could be looking forward to the post Madigan era. She was never very quote to the former speaker. And she, uh Certainly, you know, enjoyed pointing out his, you know, potential ethical and legal problems that he was set by in the last year. So, um, so I'm not sure that she doesn't think that she stands a better chance under Speaker Welsh. Um, although she has faced significant head weighs and convincing people in Springfield to help her out. You know, I'm not sure That's the case, though. I'd like to think so, Heather, But there's a good There's a good example going on. Right now. That goes that mayor wrote to the governor really strongly worded letter on this police fire Bell sweetening the pensions that that swept through the General Assembly, the union's kind of organizer, forces and favorite, she says, Hey, there's just gonna actually clobber Chicago taxpayers a terrible time of beetle it, but the indications are that the governor's probably not gonna do that. He's gonna listen T o the labor guys on But I'm not sure that the new speaker is gonna is kind of feel that he needs to go out of his way at this point and his speakership to do a favor for the mayor. Lynn Mike Madigan remains party chairman of Illinois Democrats with millions and millions of dollars at his disposal. What are the implications of that? Well, that's the other shoe were waiting to drop right now. I know that he has the term in the terms not up. But it's not out of question that the 36 members of the state's Central committee Could it meat just to discuss it to see if they have a view. So far, they have not. They've been the most loyal backers of magic and partly because there's none among them. Who has come forward to say I want to take his place. Maybe things have changed now. Certainly, he has allowed Mary Morrissey, the executive director of the committee. To be more active and vocal and at least act a little bit like a Democratic party. But the key is whether or not the new Illinois speaker Chris Welch, wants to set up his own political operation. And then there's another thing to watch is whether or not mad again himself doesn't wait to be pushed out of the state Democratic chairmanship, but Need so he could at least leave on his own terms, maybe even influence a designated heir. Now Mayor Lightfoot in trouble on several fronts this week, principally the inspector general's report that the Police Department bungled its handling of the George Floyd riots of last summer. The mayor said on Friday. Well, that's old news. We've done a lot of improvements beyond the time period that the IG was talking about, and I have 1000% Back in confidence in the ability of Superintendent David Brown. Heather, How serious do you think this trouble is for the mayor? Well, I think it's pretty serious because she campaigned on her record as a police reformer on after the death of Laquan McDonald. She led pasta course appointed by Rahm Emanuel to suggest reforms to, you know, put that terrible episode behind the department and she said, Look, I know what I know what needs to be done about the police department and I can get it something and I think this inspector general report questions. Not only good leadership during the riot and the protests itself, but also her response to it. Which is you correctly note was very dismissive on Friday, while the inspector general's report is quite damning, not only about the police Department's lack of coordination and lack of preparation, but also its lack of oversight over officers as well as its ability. Did you just the basics of aggressing people and processing them and allowing them to face charges that all broke down and on that fateful weekend, starting on the 29th, and that leaves inside the fact that under her on her watch officers, you know they used their batons in ways that were not appropriate, according to Inspector General's report, and they also use does he sprays against members of the public? And, uh, the this report damning evidence is not the last word on it..

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 what I want on loyalty was reading on stage. And maybe you can watch it online Google, but it's pretty dramatic because instead of giving you four hundred pages they give you an hour. Here's the first charge. Here's the next charge. Here's, here's ten reasons why he obstructed or or colluded. You know, it's funny Scott as you said, with maybe now we'll get to the truth. We know what the truth is the right. The truth is the truth is in the words in the report, we just need someone to say the truth, we need him to say the next sentence, which is not going to say, in that is that, yes, of course, the president of sucked of Justice. Tell me if this, if this is a push, I want to go to the supreme court. The supreme court has said five to four that the federal courts are not the place to settle gerrymandering disputes. So partisan to your during sure. So those are the kind of. Racial. The political kind here on so just districts drawn radically to favor a political party. However, undemocratic won't find remedy on John Roberts supreme court, which is a win for conservatives though. There are both parties. We're in Illinois. You know, we're in grown, man. Again is happiest boy in the country today. Why because of this, this is all been talked about, as if it's a Republican thing. It is the Republicans are certainly doing it at a lot of states around the country. But the Democrats are doing in the state where we sit you're not gonna get people say, oh, Mike Madigan, get rid of gerrymandering, and no annoy and I say that. Well, no. Why would the Democrats do that would be ridiculous? Why would the Democrats disarm in Illinois? What's approve point? So they can keep doing in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Texas everywhere else. The Republicans are doing it. Wisconsin, Illinois can preen about how great they are about gerrymandering. No, I say, we say the federal government has to step in and make pass laws about this that apply to every state should not be a state matter. That should be a federal matter. And. With your state elections. We're talking about state legislative districts, well, okay. But what we're talking about. We're talking about congressional districts also down where they could have impact, but they state legislature had no federal Voting Rights Act that you could pass a federal voting rights law, that would say that you don't think Mike Madigan shouldn't out of the rightness of it. Do something to make the elections representatives politics. Why would the Democrats, why Democratic Party? Okay. We're gonna unilateral the right thing to do. What would you do that? Politics. John, this politics. It's not just politics. It's politics what you want Illinois to, to weaken. It's, it's democratic representation in the congressional care. If you looked at it neutrally, if you just had, let's do. What's right. And you think government should do that? Then government should represent the neighboring states, doing what's wrong, then you're just weakening yourself care. I don't care about you brought up. Mike Madigan and said, why would he do it? And I said, I think that it's not unreasonable to us politicians in the state of Illinois to do. What's right. And Representative I say let's all hold hands and jump together or else you're just jumping off a cliff. Why would you do? I mean, this is this is politics. More some philosophy seminar, the university, I'm serious. No, it's not. But I am amazed. I'm disappointed that you think therefore, we shouldn't even be expiration. We shouldn't even it's not just politics. It's also government governing, and with the drawing of these maps with the new talk about good government. What he says, it's one thing to make an argument about, you know, to make a political argument or to do push mailings, or things like that. But this comes down to the way they govern and, and it's not a fair way to govern. I get Eric's point. I mean if you're if you're the party in power Democrats here on oil Republicans in other states, I mean, why would you give this up? He's you make a sound point. But the but the bigger point, which John, I think is making is that they should give it up. They did it in California. They read they released in the governor didn't draw the map has done by nonpartisan commission, and they also change the rules that made their elections, little scurry, and that they had open primaries, so you have to Democrats running in the fall. Right. Right. Right. What happens in once one party states what's happening here in Illinois, happening others where you have huge deficits you. It's just bad governing is discouraging. I, I don't know about the legal arguments of it. I'm not a supreme court Justice lawyer. I don't know if it's a sound ruling or not. But you know what? This is going to lead to now are more extreme politicians in seats of government. You're going to have conservative districts and liberal districts and all the in the decision could be made in the primary, which means the more extreme conservative, or extreme liberal is the one who's going to win, and it's only going to further divide us until we fix this gerrymandering situation which requires a federal solution because you're just not going to get these states if North Carolina would join villanovans together. We're gonna pass this law than I'd say fine. Let's do that because it is John John's. Right. It's the right thing to do, but why is it's like a suicide pact? By yourself shut this topic down, if you guys don't want to Jesse smell, Ed. No. Okay. I it's a topic just keeps on giving. He's made yet go to jail. I mean, they're going to be a special prosecutor have an appetite to put the guy in jail. I want him to be at least to stand up and say he did it. And he's sorry. That's what I want. So I don't I thought the special prosecutor who is going to look into the prosecution's. Maybe charging him again recharging him day, could I mean result of this, if they say that in fact, it was an improper, and that's what the suggestions? He was. Never acquitted. Right. He was they dropped the charge. There's no double deputy play and six. It's not clear that the state's attorney's office and Cook County correctly handled this. Well, you Sheila O'Brien on on Monday. And she was arguing that this is not really about jussie smollet. He was not even willing to take a stand on whether she thinks he's guilty or innocent. She wants to know how come Kim, FOX State Street Cook County handle this case in this preposterous peculiar way that she did. And I think it's very legitimate. And the reason for it is not right. Because just he lied or didn't lie. The reason is because we need to restore the faith in injustice county, which is a pretty big. That's a high. Jesse Kim FOX has to put this behind her. No way. I mean she has to try this doom. This is her cola. Tax is. She's going to run next year and she's going to lose because of the Scots dentists less voice, you hear there, the auditory cartoonists for the Chicago Tribune Erikson, and Steve. Bertrand me.

"Mike Madigan and whoever else has been snared in the thousands and thousands. And thousands of phone calls that the FBI has recorded of Salinas, and Burke and Madigan. Really? It sounds like it's all around Salinas right now that we're aware of eighteen thousand calls they recorded eighteen thousand calls. Remember when you couldn't believe how many Email Ron Hillary Clinton's server who humanly has time to do that. You just wonder do these guys spend the whole day on the phone call after call after call after call. I mean, you can't do that many phone calls in a day. In fact, I think Kerry wanted to say something about that. You're on WGN. Hi, taking John. Yeah. No. That's why I will chime in about I'm in sales. And I'm on my phone twenty four seven almost and there's no way I can make eighteen thousand phone calls to one person unless something that I was going on. Science and nobody's brought that up. It's like this is bizarre. Granted this goes back to two thousand fourteen it wasn't in a year. Oh, I mean still I mean that's five years eighteen thousand divided nuts. No, that's right. If it's eighteen thousand in four years that's four and a half as forty five hundred calls a year forty five hundred calls years. It's forty eight hundred calls a year that's four hundred calls a month. Right. Yes. Forty forty calls a month four times twelve is four eighty four for no for. No, that's right because it's thousand. Yeah. That would be four hundred calls a month. That'd be twelve calls a day every day. Snow fifty calls a day. Sixteen. No, he's brought that up. It's just, you know, something clearly eight right there. You know, make sense. All right. I'm doing my math here. Thank you for the phone. Call. One phone call. Let's see sixteen times thirty s four hundred and eighty one hundred eighty calls a day hold on. I just I did eighteen thousand divided by three hundred sixty five and I got forty nine forty nine calls a day. Yeah. But that really did you do that eighteen thousand calls divided. But you gotta divide that by four because they said it was four years. So what did you give when you did your division eighteen thousand divided by three sixty five you forty nine forty nine divided by five is nine or ten. So I guess if that's all you did every single day make these kinds of phone calls. It's maybe that numbers more plausible than it. Sounds. God wouldn't you like all of those minutes back in your life? We're all of those so important to now those guys may well be regretting it the feds listened in on eighteen thousand Sali's calls they followed and they saw I'm going to massage parlours going back to two thousand fourteen. This is interesting in two thousand sixteen. The feds acquired a search warrant a warrant to search Danny Scillies? He's the Chicago city alderman. He's retiring to search his home and his office two plus years ago. Maybe because that's when but they didn't. But they didn't go into his home. They didn't search his office. Why didn't they do it? They had a warrant which is difficult to get. Why didn't they do it? Maybe because that's when Sali's agreed to work with them on even bigger fish than him. Hello, Ed Burke. You were called the Burke is charged with shaking down a Burger King franchise, which right away seem to be a little odd. A little small a little distant the FBI doesn't work years trying to uncover the mystery of a Burger King driveway. But that's what we heard about. So we knew that something there didn't make sense. It makes sense that that was more collateral to the investigation. Right. That what you had here was this little tidbit about Ed Burke in the Burger King of why do we know that because they were that was just that was just collateral? That was just on the side with your really doing was getting information, Danny Sali's. And then these other little nuggets fell off. So Burks running for reelection. He said he didn't do anything wrong. But what's most embarrassing about all of this is the stuff that you then find out about Danny Sali's? I inadvertently the sun times gets this information about this affidavit from the FBI, and it's very embarrassing. And you just wonder how many people I mean, you think about that? If one of the highest ranking alderman in the city of Chicago for four years is being recorded or phones are being tapped for four years. How many things do they have on how many people? Just do them. Do the math on that. It's kind of staggering. And I think today will be the day member that real cold day in Chicago and January that was the day it hit the fan. They were frozen, but it hit the fan. Speaking of frozen, John keep frozen Lou malnati's on hand for such emergencies. I-drive Uber and I'm looking forward to tomorrow. Was twenty six below January of nineteen eighty two. I just moved here from Texas. Welcome to Chicago says Davis Jay and Villa Park from the joint relief institute. Hey, nice to hear from you. Davis. If Burke and Madigan go down, John I want a statue of Salinas in front of city hall. This texture says, hey, King, John I work at the airport, and they don't close stand outside and refuel play, and that's me. Eight one five says, I grew up on a dairy farm. You have to still go out and take care of the animals you had to break the ice. So they had water to drink for the ones outside. He had to carry pails feed to the outside one's dairy. Farmers. Get no break from this type of weather. They just dress appropriately. This is a good idea because I'm hearing from letter carriers who say the mail will be delivered tomorrow that six three zero said we stopped our male until Monday to give our mailman a break. That's really kind. How about that? Why? I if you're a letter carrier does that help you in some way? I mean, what if a whole block did that John is Amazon too close? They don't care because people are babies and well cry if they don't get their toilet paper. Get I didn't understand what they were trying to say who's the baby. And who? Mike Turkey station of that text. Is that a lot of people order from Amazon their toilet paper and habit delivered to them. Right. Yeah. I guess that's the main takeaway. But why do you need to get toilet paper from Amazon, isn't that kind of an urgent necessity? Some people plan ahead for these people have a stock. They got the toilet paper, and they have somebody delivered to their door. It's the lightest grocery item. You can get out of a store. Some people have it delivered. But most people live really close to Walgreens is. So that's the other thing another cool trick outside John. If you watch your fingers long enough, they'll turn white and then black and then they'll fall off. Oh my gosh. I'm just reading the texts here we said to engage in de-fund trick where you throw the hot water in the air tonight or tomorrow and videotape.

He happened to be holding the Senate Judiciary committee when Bill Clinton was trying to put federal judges on and Jesse m sadda- which is not gonna hold any hearings on your nominees kind of like the pre Merrick garland treatment.

"The legal is that constitutional the governor issue an executive order that tried to apply it through the executive to the legislative branch not only is it not constitutional uh but the supreme court of the state of illinois would tell you that only they can disciplined attorneys only they can decide what attorneys and can't do short passing a new statute to control it so if there is a hole in the law the supreme court has to fill it by a rule relative to the discipline or activities of the of the bar so the governor cannot do that now he's going to try uh obviously it's it's a slap at mike mad again that his goal uh it's it's not even veiled uh that's one of the few transparent things the governor has done uh but i think in the end it will not prevail of a does does some court is going to have to rule on it at some point there are people in public life who practice that area of law i do not but there are people who do and the governor should not be deciding who can and cannot practice their profession that's what i thought i mean new governor decides who what type of law you practice or or how you practice well next he'll decide that the democratic ophthalmologists can't treat any state workers uh it's not the way to go now there is much to be said if somebody wants to have a discussion on the issue of uh whether uh people that a practice that type of law who are in public life have an undue influence over the process i don't think these people do that he's trying to go after but if somebody wants to have that conversation in that debate they should have it but the rest of this is all political it's all the governor's attempt to continue to muddy up mike mad to continue an effort to win elections for the ill on a house in the illinois senate and other statewide offices in the governorship all over the issue of who mike madigan is what mike madigan does his flaws or his lack.
