“I think it’s awesome he was convicted. He really
embarrassed our town and our state. This shows nobody’s
beyond the law.”

elementary school teacher from
the South Loop

“I don’t know if he was guilty or not, but he really did something when he gave seniors free rides. That’s what I’ll remember him for.”

Ann Miklusak, a senior and a
secretary from Calumet City

“He was
pretty funny whenever he went on TV — all people [care about] these days is celebrity, but this is a real warning for other
politicians.”

Furqan Mohammed, 25,
associate attorney from Chicago

“It was the arrogance
of his
personality
that he thought he could say whatever he wanted and justify it later.
His shtick? I didn’t find it amusing at all.”

David Shoub, 70, tax lawyer from the Near North Side
