From Ken Ditkowsky:
Ordinarily I would read the article in the Wall Street Journal, note it, and forget it. Why should care if another political figure gets disciplined. In truth the political scene is unattractive and the people involved are venal.
I do care however if a citizen is being railroaded, mistreated, or the law is unjust. I took an oath over half a century ago and even though I am retired it still means something to me. More importantly my family was and is the beneficiary of America’s bounty. The Justice and Freedom of America allowed my family to prosper and enjoy the republic. Yes, I know it is old hat to mention that my grandfather came here at 9 years old and made his fortune because of who we are Americans are and what we have. Indeed, but for America’s bounty I personally might be a peasant living is Europe.
In resent years I’ve personally seen America’s core values grossly assaulted by people who were highly paid to protect them. Most notably Illinois Disciplinary Commission and in particular its Administrator and his 18 USCA 371 co-conspirators have made a mockery of the Constitution. They have unilaterally abrogated the Bill of Rights not only for lawyers, but victims of elder abuse.
The Article in the Wall Street Journal caught my eye as it looks like another attempt by persons temporarily in power to vitiate the lode stone of the Justice System, to with Honor and honesty. Here again we need an HONEST investigation!!

Since prosecutors have absolute prosecutorial discretion, I have no idea what all the fuss is about. And if the information “leaked” from the grand jury was already public, again, that is her right to do so.
It seems to me when an attorney general is suspended from the practice of law summarily, and with a one page order from the State Supreme court, something fishy is going on.
And if she, like me, is still admitted to federal court, then she still is a lawyer, but can only practice there.
It seems to me like her problem may mostly be vendetta for exposing the truth in other cases..
You know, the real problem with all of this is that everyone I know that I talk to knows that Chicago is corrupt, Illinois is corrupt, Cook County is corrupt. I have published all the problems I have found in the court system, so everyone I know (and I make friends everyday via this blog) knows what corruption is and that I, Ken Ditowsky and Mr. Amu have told the truth about the Cook County Court system and our criticisms fall squarely under First Amendment.
We did not lie. There is no evidence that we did lie, other than the tribunals we went before were not random, they were hand picked by someone at the ARDC, and we already know that Jerome Larkin has a lot to cover up for. Melissa Smart has strange property records and she refuses to make public her bank statements and payment records. Jerome Larkin too. Sharon Opryszek herself engaged in witness tampering and obstruction of justice in prior cases (Hunter Hogan case, witness Justine McGinty, a lovely smart young lady who is still furious about all of this and vows to go to law school to stop corruption at the ARDC. Good going.)
No one at the ARDC files state mandated ethics report. The ARDC is soooo corrupt when you call there to survey the attorneys “why not?” Most get rude and abusive and hang up on you. Only 1 lawyer out of about 10 apparently was contrite and respectful when this was pointed out to him.
We need to call for an HONEST investigation of the ARDC via the FBI. They have to stop this corruption. My law license needs to be returned so I can help my pro bono clients. (Ever hear of that one from a lawyer? Get my license back so I can help people for low cost or free who have had serious violations of human and civil rights?)
Where we live is just too important to throw away to the mob bosses that make fair trials, discovery and hearings and impossibility.
Jerome Larkin and he ilk need to be thoroughly and publicly investigated. And that includes all of his staff with valid citizen complaints against them–Leah Black Guiterrez, Sharon Opryszek and Melissa Smart. We need to see their bank statements and who is paying their mortgages.
