Ill. lawmakers consider expulsion of Derrick Smith
CHICAGO – An Illinois House committee plans to meet in Chicago to discuss whether to expel state Rep. Derrick Smith.
The Chicago Democrat was arrested in March in an FBI sting in which he's accused of accepting a $7,000 bribe in exchange for helping a phony daycare center obtain a state grant. He's pleaded not guilty to federal charges.
A House panel concluded this month that there's enough evidence to justify action against him in the legislature. Penalties could include, reprimand, censure or expulsion.
