"Hired Truck" scandal still rolling

Eighteen months in prison for an in-law of the outlaw mayor of Chicago:
The brother-in-law of Cook County Commissioner John Daley was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in prison, a lighter penalty than that sought by the prosecution, for taking about $4,500 in bribes in return for steering city business to a company enrolled in the Hired Truck Program.

One of the biggest municipal corruption cases in the history of a legendarily corrupt city, but you'll never see it on the national news. The media doesn't think corrupt big-city governments are newsworthy, and gee, those corrupt officials are all Democrats, aren't they?
