Beavers now becomes the thirtieth member of the Chicago City Council to be convicted of a crime since 1972.
The South Sider was accused of not reporting over $200,000 in campaign funds he used for personal expenses, mostly on gambling at an Indiana casino.
In an interesting side story, Beavers had feuded for years with the now-castrated Jesse Jackson political machine.
Chicago. What a city.
