An Illinois Blues moment here: Dem State's Attorney candidate Kim Foxx has been working for a firm that has "often sued" the county and has given her $18,500 to help her get elected, Chi Trib reported Sunday.

 How better to illustrate the Illinois Ruling Party way of doing things? She's been doing it for the year since she left County Board President Preckwinkle's office -- clearly, we may say, with intent to be the prosecutor representing the county.

 Made no never-mind. She plugged away at helping her colleagues with other work while they squeezed cash -- $6 million here, $3 million there, etc. -- out of the very county which in months she will be working for.

 Not a problem, she said. She promised her justice would be blind. "No conflict," she decreed. . . .  more more more here . . .
