Brown Dumped Amid Fed Probe

By Bill Cameron, WLS News

Cook County Democrats have dumped Dorothy Brown for re-election as the Clerk of the Cook County Circuit Court.

The Feds are investigating Brown for a shady real estate deal and so slatemakers rescinded their endorsement of her after she made this brazen challenge to them about $25,000 she gave them.

“The endorsement of me is like a contract because when I paid that $25,000 and the party actually cashed that check, that created a contract,” Brown said.

Dorothy Brown is vowing to run anyway, but county Democrats endorsed Alderman Michelle Harris of the 8th ward that the Strogers used to control.
