Ald. Arenda Troutman (20th) was arrested today on bribery charges. We have linked to the affidavit and it appears Ms. Troutman accepted bribes to make zoning changes for a private development.
Ms. Troutman is no stranger to trouble when it concerns the FBI. In 2004 she was linked with, Black Disciple, Donnell "Scandalous" Jehan.
According to law-enforcement sources, Troutman had been seen with Jehan and he was observed driving her luxury SUV.

Troutman also came under fire after two envelopes addressed to her from the Chicago Police Department were found by FBI agents in Jehan's home.

Troutman has refused to confirm a personal relationship with Jehan, saying only that she knew him as a businessman who owned a construction company.

Jehan is listed on the FBI's Most Wanted List for Chicago. There are also allegations that her family's trucking firm earned money from the "hired truck" scandal. One wonders if she has anything worthwhile to offer the feds?

Why is she still alowed to return to work? She should be stripped of her official powers and not be allowed to conduct city business.

She should be suspended and not allowed to carry her gun.

If she were a Police Officer or Firefighter she would have been stripped and suspended.

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
that can and is read by people other than Chicago Police Officers.
