Northern Illinois Corruption Worst in the Nation

Now here is a record to be proud of,  pull out the cake and candles and pass the envelope please. This sick work of politics and corrupted  engineering is ruining society.  Take a bow you pathetic Jack Wagons, the "Green Weenie Award"  is coming to you all.

Now I understand Chicago is working on an Ethics Reform but you will see here in a video the suggestion that Ethics is a gray area.  Well let me help you here with that,  the definition of Ethics- Recommending concepts of right and wrong behavior.  To put it simply right from wrong, good boy, bad boy and\or girl I see no gray area.

The only reason any of this is coming out is because the people of this country are choking on the bullshit as much as the ones responsible are having a hard time swallowing the definition of Ethics.  Dr. James Nowlan is a professor of government and public affairs at the University of Illinois at Urban-Champaign.  He co-wrote the book "Illinois Politics: A Citizens Guide" with colleagues Rick Winkel and Samuel Gove.  Well thanks to Professor Nowlan and his colleagues they have done a prob on Northern Illinois corruption, have a look.

Thanks, Dr. Nowlan well done, you sir are a true patriot.  Now over to another clip from WTTW program Chicago Tonight with Carol Marin interviewing Aaron Jaffe head of the Illinois Gaming Board a former state legislator and Circuit Court Judge.  Thank you, Carol, for I love how you grill the Jack Wagons and bring the hero's to light that we might not see like Judge Jaffe.  These old timers are the best we have.  I suggest we listen and start splitting lips and breaking noses on those who think money is GOD!  This worked in the schoolyard when I was a kid, everyone got along.

Now for something I hope you really like; Welcome to the Fold

June 26, 2012, 20 out of 26 county governments in Northern Illinois receive failing grades. “Proactive government transparency is one of the most important tools we have to help prevent, expose and put an end to government corruption,” said Brian Costin, director of government reform at the Illinois Policy Institute. “In light of the high levels of corruption in northern Illinois, it surprising that many county governments are not doing more to provide basic financial and participatory information to their citizens online. ” To fight corruption and encourage public participation in government, the Illinois Policy Institute grades governments on how much public information is available online. Dubbed “The Local Transparency Project,” grades are based on the availability of public meeting schedules, government employee salaries, tax rates, and other vital community information. Since the project was launched by the Institute in February 2010, more than 160 government entities have been graded. In the audit of 26 northern Illinois county governments, only six governments received passing grades. These are Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Lake and Rock Island.

The 20 counties who failed the transparency audit are: Boone, Bureau, Carroll, (well I'll Be Aunt Bee) Grundy, Henry, Jo Daviess, Kankakee, Kendall, LaSalle, Lee, Marshall, McHenry, Mercer, Ogle, Putnam, Stark, Stephenson, Whiteside, Will and Winnebago. “Kane County is the first county-level government to achieve the highest possible score on the Illinois Policy Institute’s 10-point Transparency Checklist.” Costin said. “We enthusiastically applaud the efforts Chairman McConnaughay, the County Board and the hardworking county staff to be more open and accountable to taxpayers. ” Kane County Board Chairman Karen McConnaughay stressed the importance of making transparency a constant goal for governments, especially at a time when public trust is low and Illinois has developed a reputation for corruption.

“Kane County has led the way on transparency, having been recognized nationally for our trailblazing efforts," said Kane County Board Chairman Karen McConnaughay. "But we never rest on our laurels and worked diligently to receive this perfect score. I'm proud of our team and grateful to the Illinois Policy Institute for its efforts to promote open and responsive government."
