Son of three-time convicted Chicago alderman fired for alleged timecard violations

The rotten apple apparently doesn't fall far from the diseased tree.

And that diseased tree is Chicago corruption.

Chicago needs to be power-scrubbed with Mr. Clean.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Ambrosio Medrano Jr., the namesake son of a thrice-convicted former alderman, has been fired from his city job for alleged timecard violations.

The younger Medrano, who once ran for alderman himself, said he was terminated last month from his position as a foreman of concrete laborers following an investigation by the city inspector general’s office.

Medrano Jr. denied any wrongdoing and said he is appealing his firing.

His father, former 25th Ward Ald. Ambrosio Medrano, is currently serving time at a federal prison in Duluth following his second and third convictions on corruption charges — an “unprecedented corruption trifecta,” as one federal judge put it.
