State Sen. Emil Jones III – Chicago Tribune

Democratic state Sen. Emil Jones III resigned from his leadership post and committee chairmanship after he was hit with federal bribery charges. Federal charges against Jones allege he accepted a $5,000 bribe from a red-light camera company executive to block unfavorable legislation and then lied to the FBI. He is the latest politician to be charged in the federal investigation of red-light cameras installed by SafeSpeed LLC.
