Hate Slate

“After religious divisions paralyzed a state commission on hate crimes, Illinois lawmakers wanted a fresh start,” the AP reported this week. “They created a new version of the Governor’s Commission on Discrimination and Hate Crimes, designed to promote tolerance within the state’s diverse population.

“But seven months later, Gov. Rod Blagojevich hasn’t appointed a single person to the overhauled commission, which will fail to accomplish its first major goal, presenting a report by March 30.

“Meanwhile, the old version of the commission hasn’t met in two years, but its executive director, Kimberly M. White, continues to draw her $96,000 annual salary.”

Hey, give the governor a break: He’s got his hands full right now.

  1. I have got to get me one of those jobs. Man, 96K for nothing. Also Dorothy Brown has a driver who makes more than 60K. And here I am all educated and working for peanuts.

  2. Anyone keeping a spreadsheet of total outlays to this army of people doing nothing, including Stroger’s family?
