Chicago Official Caught Turning Down Bribe
CHICAGO, IL – Local officials are outraged, and several community groups are calling for the resignation of local alderman Tommy Fitzpatrick, following allegations of the alderman allegedly turning down a bribe from an unnamed construction company bidding for a city contract two weeks ago.”
“Frankly, I’ve never heard of this kind of behavior from an elected official in the city of Chicago. Heck, the whole state of Illinois, even,” said Kyle Sanchez, who attended a community meeting on the subject.
Also present at the meeting was alderman Vincent Smith, who is leading the charge to demand that Tommy Fitzpatrick resign.
“We can’t have something like this setting a precedent,” Mr. Smith explained, “or else pretty soon you will have people expecting elected officials to not accept bribes, and that is something that nobody wants in Chicago.”
