$400,000+ mistake

The election of incompetent politicians who hire incompetent friends and relatives for government positions.

In this case, Cook County, IL board president Stroger released a county budget that was filled with miscalculations and errors. Things even an accounting student would have been able to catch. And one wonders why the County is facing a budget crisis even with some of the highest tax rates in the nation.

Now comes the finger pointing. The blaming of underlings (that they hired) and the recoating of Teflon while collecting their $100K+/year salaries.

And Chicago politics will continue unabated. Just like the people who voted for them deserve.
