Not that Jay Stone isn’t necessarily deserving of his whopping $75,000 check to make up for a losing aldermanic challenge to former 32nd Ward Ald. Ted Matlak (D-Machine), but geez, what about the folks like Cynthia Moody, who was awarded $1,500 for being rebuffed – for political reasons – seven years’ straight in her attempt to get a job as a “hand laborer” in Streets and San?
