Another office of a Chicago alderman raided by feds

in 2016
Late last year the FBI raided the City Hall office of 50-year alderman Ed Burke (14th). He's since been indicted.

Today the feds visited the ward office of another South Sider. It also was not a social call.

From NBC Chicago:
Federal agents raided Chicago Ald. Carrie Austin's office in the city's 34th Ward Wednesday, with multiple sources saying they were executing a search warrant.

Agents descended on Austin's ward office, located at 507 W. 111th St. in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side. The front door to the office was locked, with a passerby's knock going unanswered and private security guards later turned away.
Austin has previously faced criticism and controversy for hiring her son as ward superintendent, particularly after then-Inspector General Joe Ferguson alleged in 2016 that he and a Streets and Sanitation employee covered up the details of a 2012 car accident in which Austin's son was driving without a valid license. He later resigned his position.
This is the latest example of "Chicago values."

Chicago police: Half of all weekend gun arrestees already back on streets

"Guns from Indiana," one of fall guys for Chicago's gun violence, doesn't figure into a real problem.

From Fox Chicago:
Chicago police say they took 56 illegal guns off city streets between Friday and Sunday and 22 people were arrested.

The weekend before that, there were 53 weapons arrests. A police spokesman says more than half of those 53 arrested have already been released on bond.

Ben Shapiro: How Did This Trans Athlete Win?

Biological males are on the path to destroying women's sports.

Ben Shapiro tells the tale of Cece Telfer, who makes the ludicrous claim that being born as a man is a disadvantage was she competes against women.

Telfer enjoys the benefits of a higher testosterone level, bigger muscle mass, and a body frame more favorable for running.
