AUSA Carrie Hamilton appointed to 12th Subcircuit vacancy

The Illinois Supreme Court has appointed Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie E. Hamilton to the 12th Subcircuit vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Sandra Tristano.

Hamilton's appointment is effective July 17 and terminates December 5, 2016.

Licensed as an attorney in Illinois since 1996, Hamilton has been involved in a number of high profile public corruption cases while with the U.S. Attorney's Office, including the trials of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko. More recently, Hamilton was involved in the pending prosecution of former House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

Again with the different set of rules...

Look at the posting right below this one regarding the July 1, 2015 announcement by the Supreme Court about the 6th sub-circuit vacancy and the endless hoops candidates need to jump through just to be considered for appointment to the vacancy crated by the retirement of Judge Leida Gonzalez-Santiago.

Can someone please tell me what hoops Ms. Hamilton jumped to get appointed to the vacancy created by Judge Sandra Tristano's vacancy?

Oh yeah, just another case of the pathetic "family and friends plan" double-standard that the Supreme Court is so famous for?

As always, E.P.

P.S. for the Supreme Court...we're watching you. Might put in a call to M.A.L.D.E.F. real soon.

E.P., enjoy your comments on this blog; funny and insightful. I may not agree with all you have to say, but your point of view causes me to think and I appreciate that.

Regarding another comment of yours about the 6th sub-circuit and the person that you identified, I nearly fell off my chair when I read your comment. I had not heard this name in years. I worked against her in the late 90's or early 2000 on a Circuit Court Clerk campaign. Suffice it to say, you were tremendously kind in your description and showed great restraint. I am surprised she is still ruffling feathers this many years later as she seemed quite long in the fang back in the 90s. Chalk one up to the power of Boniva and titanium … not to mention the allure of getting paid to stir-up sh*t and not do much else for a living.

If you are indeed forced into a dance-off in Humboldt Park with this person, I urge the utmost of caution. You may know how to Conga, but she can break out a lot of OITNB-type moves, particularly if you turn your back on her. Rest assured, since you called her out on her sh*t, she’s been seething and watching West Side Story on a non-stop loop to get prepared for the dance-off.

Don't underestimate her abilities. This is not her first time at the rodeo and she has had a lot of dance-offs in her career. She’s been around since Marbury v. Madison was a pocket part, and she got into the judicial consulting business because she babysat Odas Nicholson. In other words, she’s been around the block quite a few times and she ain’t afraid to get REAL dirty. She tends to be like a cyclone, she leaves a wide path of destruction and causalities wherever she goes. Think twice and say the Holy Rosary before you decide to get involved with this woman. If you’ve ever seen a cornered mongoose than you know what I am talking about.

If the 6th sub-circuit is worth the battle and you really want to conga with her, I am warning you now not to wear your ruby slippers whatever you do. The last person who did so had a house with a Thornton Township address dropped on them.
