Newest Illinois state legislature has 3 charged lawmakers


When Illinois' new General Assembly takes the oath of office Wednesday, the state that's still struggling to rebuild its image after two consecutive governors went to prison will set yet another precedent of sorts: Three sitting lawmakers facing criminal charges.

The allegations against the three officials vary widely: bribery, bank fraud and trying to bring a gun onto a plane

Those three are just the ones that have officially been charged with something, the rest are mostly criminals that have not been busted yet, or engage in things that should be criminal but are not. ;)

The three legislators, former Rep. Derrick Smith, Rep. La Shawn Ford and Sen. Donne Trotter, are Chicago Democrats.
ROFL

Democrats and their culture of corruption.
