U.S. Judge Blanche Manning: Illinois’ 2017 Double Billing Porker of the Year Winner

 

The state of Illinois provided Blanche M. Manning with a law license in 1967 after she graduated from the John Marshall Law School.

 

Former President Bill Clinton was duped into nominating Blanche for a seat as a District Court judge for the Northern District of Illinois in May 1994. Gladys wasn’t nominated because she was the most qualified attorney in the greater Chicago area. She got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.

 

For fifty (50) years from 1968 thru 2018, Blanche has had her significant snout firmly implanted in the public trough. Apparently, no self-respecting law firms in the greater Chicago area were about to offer Blanch a good paying job.

 

It should be noted that in February 2010 Blanche opted to assume the position of senior status judge. This meant that she was only required to work 10 hours a week while collecting 100% of a full-time judge’s annual salary, which as of 2018 would be $205,100.

 

In addition to her annual $205,100 salary, Blanche also collects an annual judicial pension from the state of Illinois of approximately $135,000 and a Cook County pension of $58,500 for a total of $398,600.

 

And lastly, if you’re a federal or even a local government employee, wouldn’t you love it if you could take on senior status in your job after 10 years and continue to collect 100% of your pay? Sorry boys and girls!

 

Even though you’ll never be able to collect this unconscionable financial benefit, you can take solace in the fact that you will be required to continue to pay taxes to support it.

 

As we speak (ca. March 20180, Blanche continues to sit as a District Court judge in Chicago, Illinois.
