Former Chicago Alderman Ambrosio Medrano is now a two-time convict.

A jury found the 59-year-old Medrano guilty of conspiring to pay a bribe. Medrano showed no reaction when the verdict was read after a two-week trial.

He and two others caught in an FBI sting and convicted of trying to bribe a California official to land a contract.

Medrano faces up to five years behind bars.

He was ensnared in the federal operation Silver Shovel sting in 1996 and convicted of taking a bribe.

    Ambrosio Medrano, Miriam Santos and other Hispanics never learned hot to play the bribe game in city politics. They should have learned from a couple of guys who are masters at it Richie Daley and Michael Madigan. The trick is to use subordinates and if They got caught Daley and Madigan knew nothing. Go into denial. Just look at all the people arrested around Daley but He never was. The sailors got arrested but not the Captain.
