Chicago says #ByeAnita to State’s Attorney Who Cleared 68 Killer Cops

In 2008, Anita Alvarez became the first woman and first Latina candidate to fill the seat of Cook County’s State’s Attorney. Since then, Alvarez’s office has been accused of multiple cover-ups.

(Of course, another way of saying that is that it is 2014 and women make up less than 20 percent of Congress.)
