Better than "It's a Wonderful Life:" State's Attorney Candidate and Ald. Tom Allen on cable, streaming on PA and You Tube

Jeff Berkowitz: Was [Robert] Sorich involved in [government] corruption?

Ald. Tom Allen: Only when we use—

Jeff Berkowitz: Was that a yes or no?

Ald. Tom Allen: Was Sorich? Yes, yes. What I am saying is that I think to tell people what it really is—they are stealing, they are robbing, they are embezzling and they are extorting from the taxpayers and if they are, they should be prosecuted in an aggressive way and the State’s Attorney’s Office of Cook County should be involved—

Jeff Berkowitz: Have they [The State’s Attorney office] been aggressive on that kind of corruption?

Ald. Tom Allen: It doesn’t seem that- It doesn’t seem that way. They should be and under my leadership, they would be involved.
