Chicago corruption 1894 edition

Imagine this, Chicago Alderman on the take accepting their bribes by picking up their loot in a city hall bathroom. And the only reason we now know that no Alderman had since accepted a bribe in a public bathroom because an innocent bystander found a bribe and gave it to an Alderman who carelessly left it in the bathroom. Somehow it became an expose in a long gone Chicago newspaper

According to John Schmidt, this expose was published back on February 19, 1894!
