Claypool making noises:
Commissioner Forrest Claypool, who lost the Democratic primary to John Stroger, said letting ward bosses decide who's [on] the ballot shows "a remarkable, almost breathtaking contempt for the voters and taxpayers of Cook County."
Asked Monday, [Ald.] Beavers quickly denied there was anything misleading, saying "oh, hell no," before calling Orr a "little poop butt."
"What does he care?" he asked.
Orr said his office still hasn't received a signed and notarized "withdrawal of candidacy" form needed to remove Stroger's name from the ballot.
That's adding confusion to a situation that has been confusing from the start, causing Orr to call it all "very embarrassing" and "bush-league political stuff."
And Danny our boy, beloved of some goo-goo libs for no apparent reason:
Davis said he's fighting "the wheeling and dealing" the Stroger camp has been engaged in since John Stroger suffered the stroke.
