CHICAGO Illinois State Rep. Luis Arroyo (D-Chicago) has been charged in a scheme to pay another elected official.

The charges were unsealed in a federal courtroom in Chicago Monday.

Prosecutors accuse Arroyo, who is the assistant majority leader in Springfield, with offering to illicit payments to an unidentified state senator. The state senator is cooperating in the investigation, according to federal officials.

Love the CW-1 designation to the senator that was given the bribe.

I'm guessing his/her work isn't done, the complaint says they have been feeding the FBI info since 2016, and this incident happened this year, I would guess there is likely a lot more that is going to come out that was fed to the FBI over that last three years from CW-1!

CW1 and Individual A are both males, so that narrows it all down slightly

CWs in the ILGA:
Sen. Chuck Weaver (R-37)
Sen. Craig Wilcox (R-32)
Rep. Emanuel "Chris" Welch (D-7)

Senator and "nearing the end" (presumably retirement) would imply Chuck Weaver to me more than Craig Wilcox.

I think CW probably means "confidential witness".

Could be wrong, though.

Hopefully we’ll know more soon. They met at a Highland Park restaurant, which could help narrow it down. To bad it wasn’t JM-1 and “she”....

You're not going to get anything until the case is disposed. That could be years from now.

In previous FBI docs for other cases, I've seen "anonymous" people referenced by their initials, leading to several of them being not quite so anonymous. Maybe they've learned their lesson.

Shouldnt be real hard to find out who sponsored the legislation Arroyo was presenting him. Looks like they call it sweepstakes legislation.

Some speculation of Dorothy Brown or Sandoval . Amazing that politicians are allowed to have these lobbying type companies. He owned Spartacus 3 or some such foolishness. Their mission statement may as well just say corruption for hire. Also Arroyos kid is a Cook County commissioner i believe. Whole darn state stinks but Cook smells  the worst.

Hhmm,  interesting.  One article says "$10,000 bond" and the other says "personal recognizance bond".  Either way, I would bet that Arroyo was out of the building before the ink was dry on the judge's signature.  :pinch:

"Assistant majority leader" - does that mean he is #2 to "Lurch"?? :devil:  The noose tightens !! :clap: :hyper:

There is still a bail amount attached to the i-bond, you just don't have to pony up the 10% as your signature is taken in lieu of the 10% cash.

 

My guess is his lawyer quickly got the traditional d-bond shifted to an i-bond because as everyone knows those in power and/or with money get treated differently.

...
Not only that, but the 13-page criminal complaint unsealed Monday against Arroyo reveals the on-and-off cooperation with the FBI of the state senator - who wore a wire on Arroyo in hopes of landing a reduced sentence for filing false income tax returns. A source identified that lawmaker as Sen. Terry Link, D-Vernon Hills, a chief architect of the gambling package that cleared Springfield earlier this year.

If any of y'all watch Ozark, this is literally the plot line for the most recent season. Gambling legislation and everything.
Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.
