That includes you daring to ask why a public office can't do its job.
Yesterday, roughly two weeks later, WGN came back to the story and
found that the situation was still a mess. There is still a line of
people showing up at the Daley Center for traffic court only to find out
traffic court is online only at the moment. And one of the people they
had interviewed for their earlier story finally received a notice about
the online court date. The court date was July 7 but on the back of the
postcard the date it was mailed was July 16. This particular man had
driven three hours each way and waited 3 hours on a line to find out
he’d missed his online appearance.
WGN finally got a chance to
speak to Court Clerk Dorothy Brown about why all this was happening and
her response was, shall we say, very interesting. Brown said the only
reason she was being asked was because WGN “felt like this black woman’s
office had to have done something wrong.”
"Why hasn't this been straightened out?"
"You're just asking me because I'm black!" Jeez.
