Stanley Moore to replace Beavers as Cook County Commissioner

Cook County Democratic Committeemen selected businessman Stanley Moore Thursday to replace former Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, who was convicted of federal tax evasion charges last month.

Moore has the support of 21st Ward Alderman Howard Brookins, who has the most votes in the process.

Moore has had his share of controversy. He was investigated by the state Ethics Committee for allegedly campaigning on taxpayer money while he worked for the Illinois Department of Transportation. He was running for a state House seat at the time.

Moore denies that he did anything wrong, but he says he did not have enough money to properly refute the allegations.  He just paid a $3,000 fine in connection with the allegations.

      You're right! I think they are going to start recruiting from Cook County Jail – at least they have the right resume~

    He is investigated by the ethics committee and then they appoint him. Unbelievable how corrupt the politicians are in this state. Should have just left Beavers there.

    Stanley Moore must be the goose who lays the golden eggs!! or the luckiest guys on the South Side of Chicago. Moore has a new restaurant called Judy's Cafe inside of the brand new Walmart off of 83rd Street, instead of the usual Subway restaurant. This is the same dude who enlisted his former IDOT co-work, now Alderman Natasha Holmes (7th) to submit her name, and was appointed by Mayor Emanuel to replace 7th Ward Alderman Sandi Jackson. Now Moore himself is appointed Commissioner to replace Beavers, even after he was caught violating state ethics. He claim that he's too broke to defend his own reputation??? WOW!! He must be very good friends with some powerful politicians including our great Mayor!!
