You Serious, Clark?

The problem here isn’t so much with the gambling or the distribution of adult beverages, it’s that the city, county and state aren’t getting their cut.
“Chicago Police checking out a nondescript storefront in West Ridge walked in on an unlicensed, makeshift casino with 100 men playing cards around 10 tables loaded with casino chips, according to a police report.
There were also video gambling machines without tax stickers, and food and beer being sold without licenses, the report said.
The setup was found at 10 p.m. Sept. 11 behind a mirrored entrance at 5801 N. Lincoln Avenue, police said. The storefront sits in a strip mall between a spa and a tailor shop.”
Maybe a well placed call (or charitable donation) or two to a certain official or “friend” could have prevented this entire misunderstanding.
