Indicted Chicago lawmaker says he's innocent
CHICAGO (AP) — An indicted state lawmaker says he believes he didn't break the law and looks forward to the truth being told.
Rep. La Shawn Ford was indicted Thursday on federal bank fraud and other charges.
Federal authorities allege the Chicago Democrat fraudulently obtained a $500,000 increase and a two-year extension on a line of credit from the failed ShoreBank. Authorities say the lawmaker falsely stated that he intended to use the funds for work related to his real-estate business.
