Stroger and tax hike
I saw the same interview and, believe you me, not that I am defending Todd, but he did say he would bring it up to the board. OK, so I know he has done a lot of things that, he has not brought up to the Board, but wait and see.

Ex-Chicago Alderman Bob Shaw, Ex-Commissioner of the Cook County Board of Review
Bob was deposed as alderman of Chicago's 9th Ward, dumped as a commissioner of the Cook County Board of Review (but not before voting to reduce his brother's property taxes), and defeated in a run for mayor of South Holland. Bill, meanwhile, only narrowly won a third term as Dolton mayor a couple of years ago after being clobbered by state Sen. James Meeks, who ejected him from his legislative seat in 2002.
So why be worried that these guys could get the cash windfall of a casino along the Little Calumet River in their south suburb?
Because, people, this is Illinois.
And the Shaws still have powerful friends in high places, not the least of whom is Senate President Emil Jones, an ardent fan of gaming, a 30-year friend of the twins, and a ferocious supporter of a south suburban casino location.
There is plenty of concern down in Springfield that the Brothers Shaw might be holding a fistful of aces on this deal.
Meeks, no fan of gambling and no friend of Bill and Bob, said he put the question of a Dolton casino directly to the Senate
