On Friday, State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-IL) was indicted on federal embezzlement charges for allegedly defrauding a union. According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, Cullerton took a union job in 2012, before he was elected to office, but he continued to collect money from the union for doing no work!

In the 39-count indictment, Cullerton embezzled approximately $275,000 in salary and benefits from the Teamsters Union!

ABC 7 Chicago reported:

Federal prosecutors allege that Cullerton used the proceeds from the alleged scheme to pay personal expenses, including his mortgage, utilities and groceries.

“All I can say is that, of course, I’m very disappointed, I am disappointed in any public official that isn’t living up to the obligation that they have to the voters that sent them there, and to the people that they represent,” said Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

The state senator was one of the most vocal lawmakers during the Quincy Veterans’ home legionnaire’s crisis.

Federal officials allege that for three years, starting in the spring of 2013, Cullerton conspired with Individual A, identified as the president of Teamsters Joint Council 25, to be a union organizer. But the indictment alleges Cullerton, who previously had worked for Teamsters Local 734, did virtually no work, and ignored repeated requests by union representatives to do his job.

Ultimately, as the Democrats continue to try and destroy President Trump, alleging collusion with Russia, the Democrats are one by one, being exposed and indicted for corruption, embezzlement, and even election fraud! Regardless, the Democrats continue to deny wrongdoing, as the Mainstream Media provides cover!

John Theis, who is State Senator Cullerton’s attorney, stated that the…

“false claims by disgraced Teamsters boss John Coli in an apparent attempt to avoid penalties for his wrongdoing. These allegations are simply not true, and we will be defending the charges in court.”

In the end, the truth will come out, as it has already begun to show the utter corruption on the left, as they try to steal elections, defraud the American people, and lie to their constituents, at every turn!
