We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Chicago Alderman Is Indicted

30th May 2009

Read it.

Democrat, of course.

Mr. Carothers is the first alderman to face federal charges since 2007. Twenty-seven city aldermen have been convicted of wrongdoing since 1972.

Mr. Carothers’s father, William Carothers, was also an alderman and was convicted in federal court of attempting to extort a hospital contractor for free remodeling work on his offices in 1981.

Not really news, but a useful reminder.
