To go much further, this is really a post about how slating works in Cook County. Over the years there have been articles on the slating of judicial candidates in Cook County. Certainly it's a very political process but hey we are talking about politics here.
BTW, I retweeted this tweet from yesterday Chicago politicos met for slating there are a couple of familiar faces in this photo.
Looking for your alderman?(or any other Cook County dem for that matter) they're probably at Erie Cafe for slating pic.twitter.com/olvAuWeDUV— Lauren Chooljian (@laurenchooljian) August 18, 2015
BTW, to go back to Alvarez for a moment we'll go back to the vault to this post. She was interviewed for a 60 Minutes story regarding false confessions out of Chicago. Do you think Anita Alvarez should have a contested primary?
