My Cousin Needs a Job Too

So Stroger brings in his cousin to work as Budget Director. It’s probably front page news. But the joke is that she has done this job for the county before. So that means her Uncle got her the job instead of her cousin. Right? Man, he is really pissing everyone off. Eric Zorn has a great article. I think we should start paying attention to this. He wants to cut 17 percent of all county services, across the board. He needs to clean up a 500 million dollar defecit. UM, why are we in a 500 million defecit? Can someone wake Mr. John Stroger up please? I’m so confused here. Could the Cook County machine be screwing up this bad? For real? For reeeaaaalllll???
