Sheriff OKs deal to ban Political Hiring

Alright, I'm waiting with baited breath for the Sheriff to now function smoothly and efficiently. Here's the Sun-Times article and a blurb:

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart on Thursday agreed to settle a federal lawsuit that seeks to eliminate political hiring in his office.

The proposed deal calls for appointing a federal hiring watchdog to keep tabs on the Sheriff's Department and could pay workers who claim to have been passed over for promotions or new jobs for political reasons. Cook County taxpayers would pick up the tab for those settlements.
