Kerry Lester of the Daily Herald is reporting what many of us knew for a while. Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran is considering making a statewide run for Attorney General in 2014. The big question is whether or not Lisa Madigan will run for reelection.
Perhaps Ms. Madigan can cite to us the number of public corruption cases her office has publicly prosecuted since that time? Perhaps she can update us on the results of her investigation of allegations of sign stealing and possession of stolen property charges against fellow Democrat Patricia Fix, who was just sworn into office as a Circuit Court Judge in Lake County? If she wants, she can combine those rather pathetic public prosecution results with those public prosecutions for corruption by the Cook County State's Attorneys Office under Democrats Dick Devine and Anita Alvarez?
