I wrote earlier this week about how Todd Stroger‘s biggest challenge has been the media. You know, none of the important stuff liking laying people off bothered him. I just found out that Mr. Stroger has hired yet another one of his friends for a high paying position!
Richard Velazquez is being paid to give legal advice to Todd Stroger. However, his paycheck is coming from the Public Defender's Office. You know, the same office that just had to lay off 13 lawyers and 65 – 70 people are being forced to take unpaid days off because of the budget cuts. How much is this guy making? $108,000 a year.
What a freaking joke!
