According the the Sun Times, state Rep. Luis Arroyo has been pushing Metra to hire more Hispanic workers. They did. His daughter and his son’s girlfriend. Funny how that works. One would think that ethics and propriety would have prevented the representative from allowing that to happen. But, alas, he is a Democrat. They have no ethics or sense of propriety.
The Democratic Party is nothing more than an employment service for their own friends and family. Oh, they blather about hiring this or that disadvantaged group and make nice noises. At the end of the day, it is friends and family who get hired. Of course Arroyo denies asking anyone at Metra to put these people on the payroll. Of course, one would expect him to say that. No one is expected to believe it.
People like Luis Arroyo are a disgrace. Actually, the whole Democratic Party is a disgrace. How much longer do we have to tolerate these scandals and controversies? Every week there is some new story about patronage. Yet, no one, not even the media, will criticize it. If a Hispanic does it, there is dead silence. Fear and trembling runs rife through editorial offices. God forbid they should rile up one of these Hispanic hacks.
It is not bad enough we have a corrupt one party system in Chicago. We have a cowardly media too.
