As The Lesser Evil: The Democrats by Lenni Brenner observed in 1988:
“The Illinois and Cook County Democratic Parties are, arguably, the most corrupt political bodies west of Gomorrah. Otto Kerner, governor from 1961 to 1968, did two years, in the mid-1970s. In 1987, Daniel Walker, governor from 1973 to 1977, pled guilty to bank fraud…Myriads of Chicago Democrats have run—some have even won—while on indictment…Ten ran at one time in 1973. Nine judges were convicted of bribery in 1987."
The Chicago Tribune also revealed in 1996 that “former Democratic Illinois State Sen. Jeremiah Joyce, one of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s top political operatives, and Grace Barry, a good friend of Daley’s wife, stand to reap millions of dollars from no-bid agreements to sell gifts, food and liquors at O’Hare International airport” and “contracts worth more than $100 million and benefiting friends and supporters of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and his wife” were “expected to sail through the City Council” in 1996, under Democratic Party rule in Chicago (Chicago Tribune 2/8/96, 3/6/96).
Coincidentally, 2008 Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack “No Experience” Obama was apparently a member of the Illinois and Cook County Democratic Party before he and his Billionaire Crown Dynasty financial backers decided that the freshman U.S. Senator from Illinois should start running for President--before even completing the first three years of his term as the Illinois and Cook County Democratic Party Establishment’s representative in the U.S. Senate.
