The Cook County State's Attorney is looking into allegations that an aldermanic campaign spread money around on the streets.That particular person was Vetress Boyce, who received the second-most votes in Tuesday's election for alderman in the West Side 24th Ward.--she will face the top-vote getter in a runoff race in April. Boyce of course denies the allegations. Allen received the $10 for his vote for Boyce.
"I was coming down the street, going to the house. And there was a gentleman who approached me," said Willie Allen.
Allen said he was on the 1500 block of South Homan last week when he got the offer from a man he knew from the neighborhood.
"He asked me do you want to vote for this certain person? I said what you talking about? He said you could make ten dollars. Just vote for this here person," Allen said.
