- Chicago Ald. Isaac Carothers, 29th, is scheduled to plead guilty Monday to corruption charges, according to court authorities and records.
Court documents previously filed in the case revealed Carothers has cooperated in the federal probe and indicated he has secretly taped other public officials. Carothers is charged with mail and wire fraud as well as bribery for allegedly accepting about $40,000 in improvements to this home.
The government also alleged that Carothers accepted meals and tickets to sporting events in exchange for supporting zoning changes for a valuable piece of developed property in his ward.
So when do the feds reveal who and how many aldercreatures are on the tapes? How many State Reps and Senators? Maybe his sister and brother appear in prominent roles? Maybe even Shortshanks? We can only hope.
