Alorton.jpg
Alorton, Illinois. Let’s see: Fire Chief with long criminal history just arrested on drug charges, Deputy Clerk is a convicted felon recently arrested again, former Police Chief is in prison, former Mayor who served two years in prison is the mother of the recently-arrested Deputy Clerk, current mayor is facing charges… guess which political party runs the city.

I think Alorton is considered a suburb of East St. Louis. What does that say about East St. Louis?

Is East St. Louis considered a suburb of Detroit?

East St. Louis is part of the 12th IL congressional district where I ran in 2010. It is a sewer of corruption and poverty. Every tax dollar is stolen by the corrupt officials which are EVERYWHERE, crime is rampant and the population votes Democrat without fail.

A long time ago I read a book about education that featured East St. Louis. If I remember right, the sewage was backing up into the basement of a school where kids were supposed to be getting educated. The city had a decaying sewage system and no money to fix it. The problem was that Illinois politicians allowed industry in the area to split away from the city and form their own little cities/fiefdoms, thereby removing their tax base from the city. SO you have all these little cities that might comprise little more than a chemical factory or something.

It must be a dim wit party there. One thing about it. If they all are paroled, they can’t be in the same room together or the will violate their parole. Associating with a known felony.

I think both the fire chief and deputy clerk are former felons, so how do they have staff meetings?

Maybe FaceTime or Skype or tin can and string. They do have jail house phones though.

Wow…….And I thought Kalifornia cities and their politicians were corrupt….Looks like we have a little ways to go…Obamabots, put em in charge and see what happens..No wonder Obama wants to eliminate the “have you ever been arrested” from job applications…All these guys could get their jobs back thanks to our dear leader……

True, but Kali doesn’t have far to go.
Even if he removes “Have you ever been arrested” {Flashback of Alice’s Restaurant} they can still have “Are you a convicted felon”, which would still eliminate most of Obama’s cronies from any non governmental, non Democrat job, but would still be a resume’ enhancer for gov’t and Dem jobs.

Not defending Obama, but this was going on long before Obarf was around. Like for a couple of centuries. Chicagp has always been a wanna be city, run by wanna be influential people, even if it meant killing off the opposition.

These idiots complain about ‘racists’, but they set the bar so low… It becomes easy to scowl with these turds floating by on the stream of life. To make honest workers out of them they would need to be locked away in some wilderness camp.

East St. Louis – The second most corrupt area in the Peoples Republic of Illinois. By some strange coincidence, the deepest blue of an already blue state….
