The company Suffredin keeps

Eric Herman and Tim Novak 30 January 2008 3 Comments

Larry Suffredin wants to be the next Cook County state’s attorney and says he’d fight corruption. But as a lobbyist, he’s been working for a man implicated in a mob bombing

Larry Suffredin — a self-styled reformer running for Cook County state’s attorney — lobbied for a landfill controlled by Fred Bruno Barbara, a businessman once charged with extortion and implicated in the mob bombing of a restaurant, the Sun-Times has learned.

    There is something off putting about Larry Suffredin and his prime supporter, the power mad, unreformer, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.

    This column gives substantial support to my misgivings about both of them.

    Larry always reminds me of that Brother-in-law of Henry Hill in Goodfellas:


    ‘Where’s my Money, Quigley? Quigley, it’s been a month. Reform – I give you Reform! Where’s My money that’s all I’m asking!’
