City of Chicago Inspector General David Hoffman will hold a press conference today at 2:00 pm to announce criminal charges brought against a City of Chicago employee for improper political activity, and to make other announcements relating to the municipal election on February 27. Ooh! We wonder who it will be!
UPDATE: Lester Cioch, a supervisor in the City's Water Department, was arrested for violating the election laws. Allegedly, he solicited signatures on nominating petitions for Mayor Daley's campaign while on City time at his City worksite. All-around illegal.
