Re: Dave Gorak's Blog: Sadly, Arrest Of Gov. Blagojevich Overlooks His Kissing Up To Illegal Aliens
I can't put my finger on why it exists, but there's a connection between politicians who support aliens that violated U.S. laws by coming here and the moral suppleness those same power obsessed sleazoids demonstrate in other areas of their lives.
Corkery is an alumnus of Notre Dame who served in the U.S. Marines. He became an officer of a New York Stock Exchange member firm that, according to him, "long ago became lost in the dismal swamp of political correctness."
Joe Guzzardi adds: The association that Corkery makes between politicians who look the other way at illegal immigration and their own flexibility in interpreting the law is undeniable.
Here are three recent cases from, you guessed it, Chicago:
Carol Moseley-Braun, a one-term (1992-1998) liberal Senator born in Chicago, who had a "F" grade on immigration. Moseley Braun was the subject of a 1993 Federal Elections Commission investigation over unaccounted campaign funds. The agency found several violations, but took no action against Moseley Braun, citing a lack of resources.
U.S. Representative Luís Gutiérrez, one of the loudest Congressional voices for open borders with a solid "F-" on immigration, is currently under federal investigation for an illegal campaign donation from a real estate developer.
Chicago sanctuary city Mayor Richard M. Daley has been involved in various patronage scams and a scandal at O'Hare Airport. Daley is an ardent lover of illegal aliens. During the 2006 pro-amnesty demonstration in downtown Chicago that Daley attended, he said: "Those who are here undocumented, we're not going to make criminals out of them. That is not what America has ever stood for and will not stand for."
