Patricia Bailey, Mayor Daley's hand-picked State Representative from the 6th District, has had quite a rocky political career. After being asked to run for the seat by the Democratic Organization, she faced a spirited effort by community groups to get their own candidate elected. Then, this year she faced down former Death Row inmate Aaron Patterson. Now, the Election Board is accusing her of perjury for possibly lying about her address. Poor Ms. Bailey--she looks like a nice lady.
