    This dumbass was lucky. The Big Guy’s parents taught him to never hit a girl.

    This should be one of the first thing’s the new US attorney in Illinois should investigate

  3. Andrew Petersen says:

    No Jeff.

    The new US Attorney for the District that include Illinois should start by investigating every Alderman in Chicago that has been in office for more than 2 terms.

  4. Jeff says:

    Andrew – We would need a special prosecutor to work full time on City Hall/City Council corruption

  5. Andrew Petersen says:

    I’m available to do the typing and filing.

  6. Jeff says:

    Andrew – Prosecuting corruption may be the only source of job growth in Chicago
