Yeah...maybe they were "inappropriate" jokes. Why don't we go though all Al Sharpton's emails and President Obama's? Think we might find an inappropriate joke or two in there? Actually don't have to look at emails...just look at what they say. EVERYBODY HAS BIAS AND PREJUDICE....it's DISCRIMINATION that you have to avoid. I don't think it's quite time for the…

One question: Who were the 'authorities' responsible for okaying the re-open after the first time, when later in the evening Kelly's had the same problem? Whoever that 'responsible' authority is needs also to be held accountable.

Federal judge: Illinois politicians aren't getting message

1 year, 1 month ago from Associated Press

A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price

  • CHICAGO — A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price.
    He made the comment Friday while sentencing 60-year-old Ambrosio Medrano for scheming to accept bribes and kickbacks to sell bandages to hospitals.
    Medrano must report to prison by March 21. One prison where the defense says they'd like Medrano to go is the Colorado facility where former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is serving a 14-year sentence for corruption.
    Judge Gary Feinerman told Friday's hearing the "cost-benefit calculation" of politicians "is skewed" and too many conclude that the benefits outweigh the potential costs.
    He says he hopes Medrano's sentence will help "realign that cost-benefit calculation."
