It all started with Chicago Tribune reporter George Bliss.
BGA Investigation No. 1 In 1962, Chicago Tribune reporter George Bliss worked with BGA investigators to uncover massive corruption at the Metropolitan Sanitary District. The investigation was a huge success, forcing the firing of corrupt employees and the resignation of their political bosses. The investigations rocked Chicago's infamous political machine.
By 1969, the BGA had revealed massive vote stealing, election fraud, ambulance shortages, nursing home abuses and numerous instances of tax-gobbling waste, fraud and abuse. After producing a number of award-winning stories as a media partner, George Bliss joined the BGA as an employee, staying on as the BGA's chief investigator through Mahin's retirement, through Richard Friedman's brief tenure as executive director (1969-1971) and into J. Terrence Brunner's first years at the BGA.

Bliss returned to the Tribune in 1972, as the head of a special investigative task force.
