Alderman fails to file election reports for three years

Alderman Rey Colon failed to file election reports for three years- he failed to disclose over $120,000.00 is campaign contributions and he failed to disclose expenditures of $180,000.00.  Colon is now facing a State Board of Election inquiry.  He is blaming campaign staff, the sign of a true and wise Democrat.  Never, ever, take personal responsibility if you can blame someone else and become a victim.

He can be fined 100 percent of the undisclosed donations, but first time offenders usually are fined ten percent.  What a joke.  A better penalty would be a fine and a prohibition on running for office for a certain amount of years.  But, this is Illinois, he is a corrupt Chicago Democratic Machine Alderman, and he did eventually file.  So, now he is doing that famous Democratic disco dance- the Mea Culpa.

This is one glaring reason why we need total and tough ethics reform and enforcement in Illinois, Cook County, and, of course, Chicago- the most thoroughly corrupt city in America.  Rey Colon, like most of his corrupt enterprising brethren will get the usual slap on the wrist; and probably another turn in office.  We, the good citizens will get duped.  Again.
