Alder-thug collects over $67,000 plus benefits while behind bars

Milwaukee Alderman Michael McGee (also known as Micheal Jackson, depending upon which laws he’s trying to skirt) has been sitting in jail since Memorial Day last year. And he’s been paid his full salary the entire time, although he obviously couldn’t attend any council meetings or do much real work for the taxpayers.

He’s in jail for extorting people in his district, and then threatening those who told the authorities. He also participated in a plot to “peel back the wig” of a man. This is ghetto-speak for murder, but apparently McGee and his attorney think it’s just a case of prosecutors not understanding the slang. (It’s exactly the opposite! They DO understand it!)
