I don’t know if I buy the fact that Chicago  is the most corrupt city. So many Democratic enclaves are in the running and they are so close. Philadelphia, New York City, L.A., Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland and Detroit and so many mko0re to choose from. The official top three, or bottom three depending on how you look at it are Chicago, L.A. and NYC. The order was reached by comparing convictions for corruption between 1976 and 2019.

Chicago led the pack with 1800. That comes out to just shy of 41 convictions for corruption per year on average. That is just one city. But it comes as no surprise that the most corrupt cities are all under Democratic control. In fact, I wish they had listed the top ten. I think those cities would all be run by Democrats. It’s shameful when a Republican is convicted for co9rruption but with Democrats it’s a resume enhancer.

The report :

In 2019, there were 26 public corruption convictions in the Northern District of Illinois, which includes all of Chicago and the northern third of Illinois — double the number recorded in 2018, according to the report. The rest of the state had six additional public corruption convictions in 2019 for a state total of 32, according to Simpson’s findings based on the most recent DOJ data available.

In May 2019, Ald. Ed Burke (14th Ward) was indicted on 14 counts of racketeering, bribery and extortion based on evidence that he repeatedly — and brazenly — used his powerful position at City Hall to force those doing business with the city to hire his private law firm. Burke has pleaded not guilty.

“Former Ald. Willie Cochran (20th Ward) pleaded guilty in June 2019 to wire fraud in connection with allegations he used a charitable fund for personal expenses. Cochran was sentenced to a year and a day in prison.”

Meanwhile, at least 18 individuals were shot, two fatally, last weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago, according to Breitbart News.

The first of the two fatalities was a man found facedown on a sidewalk Saturday morning. He had been shot in the back of the head and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

More than 4,100 people were shot in Chicago from January 1, 2020, through December 27, 2020, Breitbart News reported.
