Chicago Politics

In other Chicago news, our city clerk, James Laski, just resigned Monday amid rumors and a pending investigation on corruption charges. Judging by the slew of resignations and indictments here in the past year, this seems to be the way a tenure in Chicago politics works. You get elected or appointed, do some corrupting for as long as possible, and depending on how well you've corrupted and covered up, you resign some time later in a storm of conspiracy. Makes you admire the boys and girls in ties here in Chi-town. And makes you wonder if this is more of a national trend and the others are just better at the middle part of it.
