TRUE NEWS USA - Another Chicago Alderman Going to Federal Prison??? FBI probing Ald. Willie "Itchy Dick" Cochran for alleged misuse of campaign funds
The full scope of what a grand jury is looking into was not immediately known, but state records show the 20th Ward alderman has made dozens of revisions to his campaign reports over the past two years, often to show he had paid himself with campaign funds months earlier.
While the sources said the probe focuses on Cochran's alleged misuse of campaign contributions, a real estate developer told the Tribune on Tuesday that the FBI had questioned him about a donation to Cochran for a scholarship fund the alderman supports.
"I'll tell you the same thing I told them," said the developer, who asked for anonymity. "I gave him a check, I think it was for a couple hundred dollars. … What he did with it, I have no clue."
