Who Needs the Media? Does Anita Alvarez Know Something about Durbin, Schakowsky, Giannoulias, Gary Chico?
From the Sidebar
An Illinois judge ruled last week that the state’s eavesdropping law – one of the broadest restrictions on audio recording in the nation – is unconstitutional.
The decision granted a request for dismissal made by Annabel K. Melongo, a 39-year old woman who faced criminal charges under the Illinois Eavesdropping Act. The controversial law criminalizes the audio recording of any communication without the consent of all parties involved, regardless of whether the conversation was intended to be private. Melongo, who is representing herself in court, recorded three phone calls with a clerk at the Cook County Court Reporter’s office in Illinois without consent and posted them on her watchdog website in 2010, incurring six charges of eavesdropping.
Melongo worked at Save A Life Foundation, which drew in a lot of political muscle, and has had it’s share of problems over the years.
Here’s Gary Chico again.
Nothing in the Chicago Media since Chuck Goudie blew the lid off of this in 2007.
