I think we can finally trust that justice prevails as Rudy “No Chin” Fratto leaves Illinois on Labor Day to head to his new home, FCI Ashland. Some of us thought the day would not come. It was beginning to look as if Fratto joined the government in their pursuit of organized crime. The threat of a little time down in Kentucky must not have been enough to get Fratto to turn on his criminal capos.
However, when Fratto returns to Chicago next year to prepare for his new federal case involving bid rigging at Chicago’s McCormick Place, which calls for many years in prison, maybe then we will gain a ‘good guy’.
Originally, I thought the Fourth of July holiday would have been the hallmark occasion for Fratto’s departure from society. Now it seems more appropriate that Labor Day be that day. This year Labor Day has a new meaning for the hard working people of the McCormick Place Convention Center. May all the fine men and women at McCormick Place celebrate this holiday with justice in mind and a renewed understanding that corruption is no longer going to be tolerated at the United States’ largest convention center.
Those laborers are entitled to fair and impartial processes when it comes to running McCormick Place. Even though Fratto is beginning his prison sentence on an unrelated matter, he is still the same gangster that cheated McCormick Place. I forward look to many more cases as Fratto’s taking shape at the long-time corrupt McCormick Place. Gangsters like Fratto soon will have no business doing business with legitimate people.
