Racketeering. Conspiracy. Wire fraud. Bribery. Extortion. Twenty-two counts in total, returned today by a grand jury, detailed in a 106-page indictment. It's a stunning fall for a man who for a long time dominated state politics and government, a South Side Irishman who helped to craft the state's current constitution.
