Clout You Think?
- A former city supervisor was sentenced to two years probation Tuesday after admitting he stole cigarette cartons from a city evidence room and sold them to his relatives’ South Side convenience stores, the Sun-Times is reporting.
[...] Ayesh, now 36, was working as a $66,564-a-year supervisor of tax and license compliance for the city’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection when he was arrested in 2010.
He was responsible for storing and securing contraband cigarettes seized by the city. But he took some of the confiscated goods for himself to disperse to his family, prosecutors said.
This could have been a much bigger problem though:
- Ayesh, a father of two, refused comment after Tuesday’s hearing. He had worked as an aviation security officer for less than a month in 2001. In 2003, he spent a few weeks as a probationary Chicago Police officer before going to work for the Revenue Department. He was fired a few weeks after his arrest.
Aviation Department. CPD. The guy had connections. How about some reporter Out-the-Clout?
