Democrat Committeemen Party Boys in Skokie and West Rogers Park: Ira Silverstein and Lou Lang

State Rep. Lou Lang of Skokie and State Senator Ira Silverstein have gotten into no small amount of hot water lately, over allegations that they have been sexually harassing women, who have come into their offices on legislative business.

Silverstein lost his, almost certain re-election to the State Senate, over the tawdry sexual complaints  and his pal, Lou Lang just had to step down from his committee posts and his House Madigan leadership spot, over the same caliber of womens' sexual harassment complaints.

These guys - aside from being good ole wheeling and dealing Springfield boys - have several things in common, aside from having a propensity for chasing skirts.

Despite his resounding renunciation by the voters, Ira Silverstein, remains the Democratic Committeeman of Chicago's 50th Ward organization.

And despite allegations that he engaged in a little office "grab ass" with a female lobbyist, Lang remains Committeeman of the Niles Township Democratic Party Organization.

They both continue to actively embrace and cheer-lead for very extremist left-wing antics that are regularly heaved up - (this week Lang is promoting the Open-Borders rally on Skokie's village green.)

The party boys, Silverstein and Lang, do, however, have their differences.

While Lou Lang is a presence at the liberal Reform Jewish suburban Temple Beth Israel, Silverstein and his Democratic Alderman wife, Deborah Silverstein, hew to the more traditional Orthodox Jewish, practices, a fact that got him big electoral support among area Orthodox rabbis last time (however futilely.")

Still, the two leftist good old boys - for the time being - are still wielding power on the Cook County Democrat Central Committee.

So much for the "Progressives" commitment to womens' rights.

Just better be sure to keep your wives and daughters away from their Party headquarters' offices.
