Chicago cop Ali Haleem was federal ‘mole’ in corruption cases

Ali Haleem is the self-proclaimed “Mayor of 63rd Street,” a friendly Chicago cop who offered his expertise to FBI anti-terrorism efforts and worked to build trust between police and the Southwest Side’s Arab community.

But for four years, Haleem also used some of the skills he learned as an undercover narcotics officer to act as a confidential informant for federal investigators probing wide-ranging political corruption, according to sources and public records.

Haleem is the unnamed police officer who was the cooperating witness — the government “mole” — at the center of the federal investigation that resulted in bribery charges leveled last month against nine people, most of them political workers for former state Sen. Rickey Hendon (D-Chicago), the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

Anyone that exposes political corruption in Chicago or Illinois is a hero in my book, and should be given a pat on the back.

Hopefully this will result in some Major Crookago Politicians going down, but I doubt it. It will probably be the same small fish.

The title of the article makes him sound sooo heroic. Too bad he's just another rat trying to save his hide.

He must have been caught on something and turned mole. We really need some moles in the mayors office and governors office also.
