IL AG Lisa Madigan – like the Colonel in movie – A Few Good Men

September 17, 2012

The following quote is by unknown on web site http://www.illinoiscorruption.net

Like actor Jack Nicholson in the movie A Few Good Men [from Wikepedia – “a 1992 American drama film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and Demi Moore. It was adapted for the screen by Aaron Sorkin from his play of the same name. A courtroom drama, the film revolves around the court martial of two U.S. Marines charged with the murder of a fellow Marine and the tribulations of their lawyer as he prepares a case to defend his clients”] —

Here’s “what [Illinois Attorney General ]Lisa Madigan might say[about corrupt Save-A-Life Foundation and their felony funding fraud – obtaining government grants from Homeland Security, Chicago Public Schools, State of Illinois, etc.]

You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world with expensive political campaigns and those campaigns need to be financed by someone. Who’s going to do it? You Annabel Melongo? You ABC? I have a greater gubernatorial ambition that you can possibly fathom. You weep for the [wrongfully appropriated tax] money and curse Carol Spizzirri. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what a campaign costs. Carol Spizzirri’s though full of lies and deceptions saves [corrupt] political lives. My refusal to prosecute Jon Burge though calculated and incomprehensible to you saves my career. I don’t want them prosecuted because deep down I know that’s what we do in Illinois. I need Carol Spizzirri in that role. I want her in that role. In Illinois we use words like earmarks, connections, pay-to-play. We use these words as the backbone of our politics. Other states use them as punch lines. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to people who rise and sleep under the blanket of the legal system I provide and then question the manner in which I provide it. I would rather want they say thank you and go on their way otherwise I suggest they go through a campaign. Either way, I don’t give a damn what people think they’re entitle to.
