"Who Got that Bribe" continues

Vital Rehabilitation Clinic, 5820 W. Irving Park Rd., in Chicago just had a nasty fire that made all the news stations. Alderman Tom Allen also made the scene. I hope when major renovations like this happen in Chicago the Inspectors make sure everything is up to snuff. Taking a few hundred dollars shortchanges the lives of many. I find it hard to believe a building this size has a small water service under one inch and no sprinkler system. Chicago alderman should make sure sprinklers are the rule, not the exception. A Chicago firefighter got hurt in the blaze. Let’s make sure rehab work in Chicago is done right.

The cause of the fire was not known as of late Friday, said Fire Department Cmdr. Will Knight. The blaze started about 8:30 a.m. in the one-story Vital Rehabilitation Clinic, 5820 W. Irving Park Rd., and because of the heavy smoke, authorities had to evacuate homes east of the building. A firefighter suffered a slight injury to his neck, but no other injuries were reported

    Two years ago, John Kosiba was the highest-ranking City of Chicago official to testify how he helped rig city jobs to reward the mayor’s political workers. Now, Kosiba is facing the loss of his law license as a result of that testimony.

    The state agency that regulates lawyers accuses Kosiba of engaging in misconduct. The three-page complaint against Kosiba, filed by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, is based on the testimony he gave at the trial of Robert Sorich, Mayor Daley’s former patronage director. Sorich was convicted and is now in prison.

    Kosiba, 46, spent two decades on the city payroll. He now works for a company that manages O’Hare Airport’s international terminal.

    “What I did was tell the truth when federal investigators asked me questions,” Kosiba said Tuesday. “If the ARDC believes I should be disciplined for my actions that happened that many years ago, I’ll stand by their decision.”

    It will be up to the Illinois Supreme Court to decide whether to discipline Kosiba. Possible penalties range from a reprimand to disbarment.

    (Response) More lawyers will go down, promise!
