Skip to comments.GOP offers Daley bounty
Posted on 07/26/2005 3:37:54 PM PDT by glorgau
The Cook County Republican Party announced Tuesday a $10,000 reward for any "whistleblower" who provides information leading to the indictment and conviction of Mayor Daley for violations of the Shakman Decree or other forms of political corruption.
The Shakman Decree is a federal court decree that bars city officials from hiring employees for political reasons.
"The arrogance of Richard Daley is appalling," Gary Skoien, Cook County GOP chairman, said in a statement. "The corruption is so pervasive, so extensive and has been going on so long that most of these insiders don't even have a clue that their actions are illegal. We hope that this reward will inspire someone with critical knowledge to come forward."

I wish the GOP in Michigan would grow a pair.
Anybody who knows anything is getting more than $10k from these corrupt thugs.
This should have happened to Ed McNamara 10 yeara ago.
I'm not sure 10,000 is worth taking a bullet for.....
That machine has a lot of uncle Quidos in the back room.
I'm still yanked about election night in Detroit. It just doesn't appear that anyone intends to ever clean that mess up. It's just going to continue year after year after year.
Gee, Gary.....what was your first clue? < /sarcasm >
actually offering a reward is pretty pathetic
Like father...like son.
What good is $10,000 if you're dead?
Indictment would be easy. Conviction by a Cook County jury? Never.
"Like father...like son." You beat me to it!!! Flashbacks to the election his father corruptly won for the other crook Kennedy (son of a gangster).
Its a disease that's gone national.
If the choice is between Richard Daley and Jesse Jackson Jr., I'll take my chances with keeping Daley.
Corruption?? In Chicago?? By the Daley Mob?? I am shocked, shocked, etc.
That's sort of a myth. JFK would have won in 1960 even without having won IL.
