- Former Chicago Comptroller Amer Ahmad received a 15-year federal prison sentence Monday for his role in a bribery and money laundering scheme from his time as Ohio’s deputy treasurer.
Ahmad, 40, pleaded guilty nearly a year ago to participating in the kickback scheme that pre-dated his time as a top financial adviser to Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Ahmad fled to Pakistan and was arrested there in late April after officials said he tried to enter the country using a forged Mexican passport and a forged Pakistani visa.
Ahmad remains in Pakistani custody pending an extradition request from the U.S. government, federal officials said Monday.
Anyone ever discover where he got the fake travel documents after leaving Rahm's employ? Anything to the theory that the Machine greased the skids out of town?
