Judge Unseals Court Records Detailing Feds’ Case Against Ald. Danny Solis

Newly unsealed court records released Wednesday detail the federal government’s corruption case against embattled Ald. Danny Solis (25th), who became an FBI mole after being confronted with evidence against him.

Solis has been missing from the public eye for months. He stepped down as chairman of the City Council’s Zoning Committee after the Chicago Sun-Times reported he was wearing a wire to help the FBI build its case against Ald. Ed Burke (14th).

Morning Shift talks to Sun-Times political reporter Fran Spielman for more on the federal government’s investigation into Ald. Solis.
