Jan 25, 2018

The Chicago Sun-Times highlights findings published in a co-authored report from Dick Simpson, UIC professor of political science, that breaks down Cook County Board voting patterns and divided roll call votes during Board President Toni Preckwinkle’s second term.

A 2015 co-authored report from Simpson that compares corruption in Illinois and Chicago to the rest of the country serves as a key component for CheatSheet.com’s article on the 15 most corrupt cities in America for 2018. A related 2016 report on corruption in Illinois is cited in Chicago’s profile at number two on the list.
