Dem state Rep convicted for playing musical addresses
As reported at Capitol Fax, Il state Rep. Patricia Bailey, who was elected to congress from the 6th District on Chicago's south side, has been convicted of three counts of perjury and two counts of forgery.
A story details the background, and contains this passage which I can't quite figure out...
In opening statements, Assistant Attorney Gen. Steve Nate said when Bailey first ran for the 6th District seat in 2001, she lived with her mother at 4217 W. Wells St. But after a redistricting, that address was moved to the neighboring sixth district, Nate said.So... the 6th District is a neighoring district to the sixth? The story doesn't explain, but I assume that the redistricting left her address outside the sixth somehow, and apparently she used fabricated addresses, including one non-existant address and the address of a vacant lot, in filing candidacy papers and registering to vote.
