Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, an old-school Chicago politician who likes to call himself “The Hog With the Big Nuts,” has been indicted on federal tax charges. …
But Beavers, 77, called the indictment “horse s— I’m not worried about.”
He said the feds only indicted him because he refused to wear a wire on fellow Commissioner John Daley, the brother of former Mayor Richard M. Daley and of former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley.

Assuming this is true, isn’t this just about the last thing you want to say? How does this help
Beavers Smith or Daley White? It doesn’t.
Can you imagine some knuckle-dragging bent nose Tony Soprano wanna’be getting indicted and walking out of booking shouting, “They wanted me to wear a wire on Tony.” Now what you’ve done is tie the two of you together and make both of you look guilty of somethin’.
