[CN Editor -- I cannot vouch for the accuracy of all of the following. It may or may not be true, I just don't know.]

[The following is a transcript of a recorded phone message put out by a group in Chicago called "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts [CCCC]." (312) 731-1100 and (312) 731-1505.]

Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 Oglesby.

One who helps corrupt public officials is called a "bag man," "fixer," or simply, "the connection." In this role some years ago was Murray "The Camel" Humphreys, a financial expert good at arranging offshore bribes to state and federal judges in Chicago, state and federal prosecutors here, and law enforcement. In 1965, he was subpoenaed before a federal grand jury here. The FBI was not concerned about his possible testimony against state court officials, but were worried "The Camel" would "finger" high level federal judges and federal prosecutors. So, the FBI murdered "The Camel" and spread stories that he died of "natural causes."

A team of Chicago lawyers acted as "bag men" in the 1960s and thereafter: Oscar Noodleman and Harry G. [unclear]. In the first such civil case of its kind, our chairman [CCCC] brought suit against them. The crooked judges, naturally, rejected the case.

Noodleman's relatives were among the founders of the Chicago- Tokyo Bank -- not really an Oriental bank at all. A former Israeli Intelligence officer, [unclear], in his book, Profits of War, says the Chicago-Tokyo Bank "washed" millions of dollars of illicit gun-running loot, implicating Ollie North, George Bush, and others -- part of the secret U.S.-Israeli arms network, the author says.

Another reputed "bag man" has been Jenner & Block law partner, Thomas P. Sullivan. He went on to whitewash corruption as the chief federal prosecutor in Chicago. Sullivan was the reputed graft carrier for the Community Currency Exchange Association to bribe state legislators to kill any branch bank laws, hated by his patrons.

Jenner & Block also reportedly has a unit specializing in bribing and blackmailing judges in the municipal section of the circuit court of Cook county {1} and the U.S. bankruptcy court.

Being "on the pad" is a term meaning a public official is on a secret list and gets periodic bribes. Reportedly "on the pad" with Jenner is chief bankruptcy judge John D. Schwartz as well as judges Robert E. Ginsburg and Eugene [unclear], who's also a general partner.

A bribe courier was Chicago bankruptcy auctioneer, Wallace Lieberman. He was facing a possible special federal grand jury subpoena. Like with "The Camel," an FBI agent murdered Lieberman.

A businessman, Michael Scott Dugan, got falsely pushed into the bankruptcy court here. He claims it was part of a scheme to steal $2 million of his family's properties. In a federal district court case, #93C683, Dugan charges that an agent showed up at Dugan's place of business, a shadowy character named Norman Wolfe(?). The suit charges Wolfe discussed with Dugan corrupt influence involved in Dugan's bankruptcy litigation and Wolfe told Dugan, "Your representatives aren't gonna be able to help you. I can arrange a meeting between you and Victor Caciatori(?), a trustee of DePaul University, a talented lawyer," which Dugan understood to mean that Caciatori, with Wolfe, would lend Dugan their ability to corrupt judges and other state and federal officials.

Earlier, Caciatori had somehow escaped jail for his participation in bribing Cook County Board of Tax Appeals employees to corruptly obtain lower real estate tax assessments.
