The Sun-Times over the last couple of days has stories on the news of the feds having some type of dirt on the city clerk. In an article from Thursday's Sun-Times, Alderman and power brokers were already talking about lining people up to take over in his place. In an article from today's Sun-Times, we see that this news has taken its toll on Clerk Laski. It seems like the news already reached him before Christmas and he failed to show up for work. He hasn't been in his office since last year apparently.
AlsoLaski has been charged with soliciting payoffs and obstruation. I have also found this in the Sun-Times as well.
