I have lived in the “great state” of Illinois for my entire life. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and migrated south as an adult. Living in Illinois teaches you to learn how to deal with and make the best of situations. Case in point the Chicago Cubs. We love them despite the fact that they are cursed. Like the occassional blizzard, we deal with it.
Daniel Walker was the 36th Governor of Illinois. He was in office January 8, 1973 – January 10, 1977. In 1987 he was convicted of improprieties related to a savings & loan. It had been reported that he received over a million dollars in fraudulent loans for his business and repairs on his yacht . At his sentencing, the judge stated “It’s clear to this court that a pattern was established and that you, Mr. Walker, thought this bank was your own personal piggy bank to bail you out whenever you got into trouble.” Walker was sentenced to seven years in federal prison, and served 18 months.
