|"We're Getting Things Done,|
Willie B. Cochran"
Will another member of the Chicago City Council, the worse legislative body in America, take her place as a guest of the BOP?
Chicago has 50 alderman. All of them are Democrats.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Ald. Willie Cochran (20th) is under federal investigation in connection with his use of political campaign funds, sources told the Sun-Times.Did Cochran tell the IRS about these payments? Did he pay taxes on them?
The Sun-Times reported Oct. 8 that records show Cochran paid himself more than $115,000 from his campaign fund over a three-year span.
Most of those payments were reported by Cochran belatedly — months after he was required to do so by state disclosure laws — in a series of amended campaign disclosure reports.
Illinois law does not prohibit politicians from taking money from their campaign funds for personal use if the payments are "for services actually rendered."
