    Wal marts low wage workers is a broad term. Do you have any scientific forbes or nation .com surveys which prove those low wage workers collecting those benefits arent high school drop outs with no skills popping out baby after baby w no support from the father? Yep walmart is a low wage for a single mom w multiple kids. Not buying thats walmarts fault.

    There have been poor people since the dawn of time. At one point in our history there were soup lines because of high unemployment and joblessness. At no time, no matter the circumstances, is it excusable to strong arm someone and steal their belongings. The act is even more repugnant when it is someone young preying on the elderly. There is a bright line between right and wrong behavior. Stop making excuses for these brazen remorseless criminals.

    Sposato's pension depends on property taxes as does any alderman who served as a public servant. How do you think he or any other former public servant will vote? Just one if the myriad of conflict of interests that are NOT in the majority of tax payers best interest.

    Everyone who gave to this fundraiser is not even from illinois so they wouldnt know that. (Except the teacher.) Glad to see the teacher gave for once. Donors choose is pretty smart making sure comments are only open to those who donate.
