State Rep. Andre Thapedi named to special investigating committee...

Rep. Thapedi is one of six members of the Illinois House of Representatives to consider the case of their colleague Derrick Smith according to the Capitol Fax. A week before this past Tuesday's primary State Rep. Smith had been arrested by federal authorities for taking a bribe from a daycare operator. BTW, here's another column that further explains the case.

The hearings of this committee will be closed to the public. If this committee finds reason for any discipline a separate committee will conduct public hearings. The end result of these proceedings will be expulsion from the Illinois House of Representatives for Smith.


  1. Isn't Rep. Thapedi a lawyer?

  2. I get the feeling there is a point to your question. Why don't you just make it?
