(60 ILCS 1/55-37)<quoted text>Does your weasel friend think he can get away with running for the Worth Township Board again without quitting the Chicago Ridge Village Board and keep sucking down his $40K sweetheart bonus and swallowing the early Village Retirement package? Wonder what the courts will have to say about that? Does he plan on paying any of the money back? He'll look good in the next set of negative headlines. The reporters didn't dig deep enough the first time. They have a lot more ammo now.
Sec. 55-37. Misconduct of officers; penalty. Every township officer who is guilty of a palpable omission of duty, or who is guilty of willful and corrupt oppression, malconduct, or misfeasance in discharging the duties of the office, shall be guilty of a business offense and, on conviction, shall be fined not more than $1,000. The court in which the conviction occurs shall enter an order removing the convicted officer from office.
