Al Sanchez, the former commissioner of the city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation, was convicted of rigging city hiring. Another Democratic criminal hopefully on his way to prison. More proof Chicago is the most thoroughly corrupt city in America. More proof, the only good Democrat is an imprisoned Democrat.
Sanchez was the “Godfather” of the criminally corrupt Hispanic Democratic Organization. The pay to play army of patronage hacks, vendors, and contractors, established to support Mayor Daley and his corrupt criminal allies. It was nothing but a money machine. Money in for Daley, money out by Daley for vending and service contracts- and city jobs. A new twist on an old game.
(Sanchez) is a great man who provided great service to the city of Chicago,” said (attorney) Breen. Yeah, Al Capone was a great man too. He rendered great service to the city; he ran soup kitchens to feed the poor, he gave money to charity. He helped widows and orphans. Capone, like Sanchez, was still a criminal.
Another attorney was quoted as saying Sanchez was caught up in a system he did not understand. OK, right. Sure. I just saw a pig fly, hell just froze over, and a guy named Daley is not the mayor.
And one of the attorneys stated- “there’s a lot bigger fish out there than Mr. DelValle and Mr. Sanchez”. Of course there are. There are plenty of fish to fry. But, like any good criminal organization, the big tunas protect themselves with costly layers of bureaucracy and phony front groups like the HDO. Daley is so far removed from day to day corruption it is difficult to reel him in. His mantra is the same as his father’s. The Eleventh Commandment- Thou shalt not get caught.
The real question you should be asking right now is this- When is enough enough? The corrupt criminal Democratic Machine’s time is up. You, the citizen and voter, have a golden opportunity to throw all the bums, criminals, and corrupt elected officials out. Do it. Do not vote for Daley or any of the fifty aldermen. It is time for new people. People with honesty and integrity. People who are not supported the the Chicago Democratic Crime Family.
