Derrick Smith: Caught on Tape Taking Bribe… prolly still re-elected.

State Rep. Derrick Smith, expelled by his House colleagues and allegedly caught on tape by the FBI taking a $7,000 cash bribe, gets an endorsement from a former Chicago alderman. The key reason: Smith is a Democrat and you should always vote a straight ticket. “I would hate to see anyone trying to split their ticket and miss voting for President Barack Obama,” writes former 28th Ward Ald. Ed Smith. Well, we hadn’t thought of that angle. http://www.austinweeklynews.com/main.asp?SectionID=3&SubSectionID=3&ArticleID=3910
