Illinois Media–Carol Marin: Ex-Senate President Emil Jones’ Stepson Gets $787,000 Contract–No Work Reports Submitted

(Chicago, IL) – December 17, 2009. Chicago Sun-Times columnist Carol Marin has unearthed a doozy of political consulting contracts light on the work, heavy on the wampum:

A consulting firm headed by former Illinois Senate President Emil Jones Jr.’s stepson John Sterling has been paid more than $787,000 under a Cook County contract funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, despite failing to provide required weekly reports — for 21 months.”

Perhaps the failure to submit the reports is only a paperwork reduction initiative on Sterling’s part.

  1. Perhaps, rather than his adherence to the Paperwork Reduction Act, the paucity of reports (read: none) may be attributed to the fact that perhaps Mr. Sterling cannot write. Or read.

    And to make matters worse, he probably sounds a lot like his uncle when he (Sterling) opens his mouth and talks.

    I have to leave this blog now, I am afraid. I’m going to Geni.com to see if I am somehow related to Emil Jones. I’m getting tired of the endless and sometimes futile battle of trying to add value to my employer’s top and bottom lines. Where can I get a gig where somebody hands me $787,000 and I thereafter am essentially asleep at the wheel? Uncle Emil delivers for his bloods.
