Powerhouse & Former Chicago Alderman Fast Eddie Vrdolyak indicted on income tax evasion, impeding IRS

Onetime powerhouse Chicago alderman Edward R. Vrdolyak, who went to prison after pleading guilty to a high-profile financial scam in 2008, has been indicted on charges of impeding the IRS and income tax evasion.
Vrdolyak had surfaced last year in a federal indictment that accused Daniel Soso, a Chicago attorney, of evading nearly $800,000 in income taxes.

Vrdolyak wasn’t identified by name in the Soso indictment but was revealed in court to be the unnamed “Individual A” in that indictment.

The indictment of Vrdolyak, filed earlier this month, is a superseding one which also includes Soso.
“We are very much saddened to see this. It’s a very old matter,” Vrdolyak’s attorney, Michael Monico, said Tuesday. The former alderman “is approaching 78 years of age and there is no loss at all. And it just surprises us that the government saw fit to bring this case.”

The former 10th ward alderman was widely known during his time on the Chicago City Council by the nickname “Fast Eddie” after developing a reputation for dancing on the edge of a law but remaining on the right side of it. He was known for saying he always assumed anyone he was talking with might be wearing a wire.

In 2009, a federal judge initially gave Vrdolyak a big break, giving him no prison time for his role in the Levine scheme. But prosecutors appealed, and Vrdolyak ended up resentenced to 10 months in prison and 10 months of home confinement and work release.

More details to come on this developing story.

I consider ERV to be a good guy.
When Tom "Buzzy" Eichler's former marines nominated him for the Medal of Honor for his bravery at Khe Sahn I met with ERV and he reviewed the citation. He agreed Buzzy deserved the Medal and would help the cause. Within two days both United States Senators from Illinois called and requested that the paperwork be forwarded to them as they would help.
I advised Buzzy of the call and informed him I would attend the ceremony if he received the Medal and he would have to wear his dress blues from the 60's. He told me I was not being fair as he would have to lose at least 50 pounds.
ERV tried and should be thanked.

He will continue the case for years, he is so old now he only has less than 5 years if that to go. He will never see the inside of a prison. If I was him, I would do a Whitey Bulger. Spend my remaining days on a beach somehwere.

Eddie was always a true nigger-hater except when he had his old radio show with the late Ty Wansley. Those two were a good salt & pepper team.
