Tax Dollar Shortage

Thanks in part to Tommy Dart again:

  • Cook County commissioners on Thursday unanimously approved a $14 million payment to settle a lawsuit alleging that a pattern of “masturbation attacks” orchestrated by Cook County Jail inmates against assistant public defenders created a hostile work environment that the public defender failed to address.

    A separate lawsuit by jail employees against the sheriff’s office is ongoing.

The complete lack of consequences for such behavior in the jail guarantees that it will continue. The fact that Dart tried to bargain pizza parties for non-beating-off behavior only encouraged more and will undoubtedly cost tax payers even more tens of millions when the jail employees lawsuit proceeds through the system.
