One employee told federal investigators that the “going rate” to buy a job in Brown’s office was $10,000, to be paid to her personal bagman. Brown has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and has not been charged despite a nearly 5 year investigation: https://t.co/5CxjhgQ008
How does Brown expect to run for mayor while navigating an ongoing federal investigation? “I’m going to hold off on saying anything about that,” Andrews-Keenan said. “She wants to address that all at once in front of everyone on Sunday. She’s going to lay everything out then.”
As TominChicago notes, people criticize Madigan for all kinds of things that aren’t his fault, but he doesn’t get near enough criticism for something he’s legitimately guilty of, which is aiding and abetting Dorothy Brown all these years.
Agree with the earlier comment that if anything this will push the Feds into overdrive. Public officials under the heat lamp going away is one thing, sticking around and seeing higher office is another.
Rahm’s unpopular enough to come in third. Wouldn’t that be something?

Rham vs. Dorothy. Tough choice but I think I might go for Dorothy. While she is not the poster child for good government - - she is not Rham.
Hope I have a better choice. If she makes the run off and Rham does not make the run off then I will vote for- - — anybody but Dorothy.
