33rd Illinois Governor – 1961-1968
A horseracing track owner admitted bribing
Governor Kerner to gain choice racing dates
and to get an expressway exit for the track.
The bribes were in the form of stock. The
scandal came to light because the owner had
deducted the value of the bribes from federal
income tax returns in the belief “that bribery
was an ordinary and necessary business
expense in Illinois.”
Convicted on 17 counts of bribery,
conspiracy, perjury, and related charges.
36th Governor of Illinois – 1973-1977
Convicted of improprieties related to the First
American Savings & Loan Association. Media at
the time reported he received over a million
dollars in fraudulent loans for a business and
repairs on his yacht.
Convicted on multiple fraud and tax evasion
charges and sentenced to seven years in federal
"I knew this was against regulations, but, like most
businessmen, I saw a huge difference between a
law and a regulation."
39th Governor - 1999 - 2003
Entire tenure was dominated by Operation Safe
Roads, scandal involving the illegal sale of
Commercial driver's licenses, contracts and leases by
state employees. Scandal came to light in 1998 after
6 children were killed in a traffic accident by an
undocumented immigrant with an illegal CDL.
Seventy-nine former state officials, lobbyists, and
others have been since charged in the investigation,
and at least 76 have been convicted.
The charges included racketeering, bribery, extortion,
money laundering and tax fraud.
Steered contracts worth millions of dollars to friends
and took payments and vacations in return.
Sentenced 6 and half years in prison and still serving
the remainder of his term.
40th Governor of Illinois. 2003 until
impeached in 2009. Only governor to ever
2nd straight Illinois governor convicted of
Spent 2 1/2 years professing his innocence
on reality TV shows.
Convicted of 17 of 20 corruption charges in
his second trial, including trying to sell
President Obama’s former Senate seat and
shaking down a children's hospital and a
prominent movie producer for campaign
Sentenced to 14 years in prison.
John “Quarters” Boyle
Convicted of stealing $4 million
from the Illinois Toll Highway
Authority IN QUARTERS.
After being released from prison,
was then given another cushy city
job. Later charged with taking
bribes for contracts in the Hired
Truck Scandal that took down 12 of
the Mayor Daley's underlings.
His cronies’ city towing company,
involved in the scandal, was also
convicted of running an interstate
car theft ring.
Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives from 1959 to
1963; Secretary of State in 1965. Died in office in 1970.
During his tenure as Secretary of State, any payments made to
the Secretary of State's office were made out to simply "Paul
Powell". Unsuspecting Illinois residents thought they were
writing personal checks for license plate registration.
His personal motto was, "There's only one thing worse than a
defeated politician, and that's a broke one.”
In a lifetime of “public service”, never earned more than
$30,000 a year; left an estate worth more than $2 million –
$800,000 of it was in cash found in his Springfield hotel in shoe
boxes along with 49 cases of whiskey, 14 transistor radios, and
two cases of creamed corn.
When settled in 1978, his estate was worth $4.6 million.
