Candidate Stroger announces, if elected, he'd establish "an inspector general's office that is independent of politics and free to investigate any claims of corruption filed against any county official." Since, you know, there are so many Cook Co. jobs independent of politics. (By way of comparison, the current inspector general, whom he couldn't name but whose position Stroger says he'll make "'tougher, more independent,'" donated over $3,000 to Stroger's father's campaign.)
