Gutierrez, Another IL Democrat Scandal

Yet ANOTHER Illinois Democrat in a scandal. The hits just keep on coming, folks, in the Land of Stinkin'. CBS2 Chicago has this: U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-4th) actively fronted for now-indicted real estate developer Calvin Boender, and the relationship led to a personal loan and at least one real estate deal for Gutierrez, sources tell CBS 2. Gutierrez allegedly squired Boender around City Hall and introduced him to aldermen. Those meetings led to discussions about potential development deals in various Chicago wards. Gutierrez, man of the people, all tight with the real estate developers. Hmmm. CBS2 goes on: But the revelation that Carothers worked for a year with the FBI secretly recording conversations means the investigation may involve many more. Among insiders said to be worried is Gutierrez. Full Story at CBS2, with video... It's getting difficult to keep up with all the Democrat scandals in Illinois. About the only winners are the lawyers. Marathon Pundit has a thought about that: Sen. Roland Burris (D-Blagojevich) isn't the only member of Illinois' Washington delegation feeling nervous. Congressman Luis Gutierrez will probably be thumbing through the "Lawyers" listings in the Yellow Pages this weekend. Leave a Comment Here... See our cool merchandise...
