    John Lott's disturbing and scary run-in with Chicago/Daley politics

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/...ichard-daley/#

    I met then CBS reporter Mike Flannery outside the auditorium where the mayors' presentation was about to take place, and he suggested that I attend the meeting so that I could better answer any questions that he might have.

    ...one of the men gave me a couple of solid hits in my back and then pushed me hard on my shoulder, almost knocking me out of my chair.

    I was then faced with two different termination options: immediately resign from the university or stay until July and promise not to talk to the press any more while I was there.

    Illinois, a dirty state from top to bottom. Chicago, a dirty city from top to bottom. Who'd of ever thought. Dah. Daley ranks with Bloomberg in terms of being anti-2A.

    I find it interesting that many elected officials deem that election as a rise to nobility if not diety.

    Heavy-handed tactics like that are not unexpected from the mayor’s office. I would be willing to bet daley’s successor has already been chosen and they are just waiting for the formality of an election before he takes office.

    My wife is from Springfield, IL and she says nothing like this is even surprising out of Chicago politics. It is actually quite the norm.

    I wouldn't throw out the rest of the state because of Chitcago.....Southern Illinois is a great place to live...although I will never go back until the politics and people who run the state change.
