HAMMOND | An East Chicago councilman and police officer appeared Tuesday in Hammond federal court for his initial hearing on federal charges alleging he failed to file his taxes in 2008 and 2009.
An East Chicago public official faces a police internal affairs investigation, and council members from Hammond and Gary face possible removal from office in the wake of federal indictments announced this week.
So many public corruption indictments have been handed down against public officials in Lake County over the years that voters run the danger of expecting local government officials to be corrupt. That should prompt action by good, decent, honest officials to shore up the public's trust.
HAMMOND | If Indiana's U.S. attorneys lag behind their nationwide colleagues in generating public corruption cases, as recently published federal statistics show, it wasn't apparent Thursday.
CROWN POINT | An East Chicago City Council candidate is no longer contesting his loss in the May 3 Democratic primary.
