Too many limp wristed fools parading as public leaders in this era. Daley may have been corrupt to his teeth, but folks didn’t mess with him.
The old time Democrats knew that keeping their neighborhoods safe was the key to economic prosperity and keeping them in office. The new breed of Democrat urban politician is like a sophomoric college student who spouts a lot of socialist garbage and does nothing to fight crime or encourage economic development.
When they have been in for too long, many of them line their pockets. Sometimes they go to jail where they belong, but most of them don’t. They are in office until they retire or die.
My fellow Southerner, the Democrat GEORGE WALLACE , is another example.
