Project Approval For Sale

Arenda Troutman, until recently a Chicago alderman, pleaded guilty today in federal court.

Basically, she was taking money from real estate developers.  Then she would get their projects approved.

Then the FBI ran a sting operation, recording the following Troutman notable quotable:

"Most aldermen, most politicians are hos."

Poor Arenda,
a first time offender,
but now they will send her
away.

That Quote

While it's on my mind, about that guilty alderman saying "most politicians are hos"...

I guess she was trying to excuse herself by saying "most of us are crooks".  Which is unfair to other politicians.

Also, as far as that goes,
she's rather unfair to hos.

Prostitutes may be unsightly on your street corner, but they will not shake you down for money when you want to build an apartment complex nearby.

More businesspeople should say:
"Get the hell out of my way."
