The pattern of sleazy behavior continues...

Many of us will never forget the infamous smear mailer that Victor Wogen circulated to Third Ward residents during his campaign in April 2007. If you recall, it included a picture of incumbent Steve Kapitan's house with a list of code violations as well as other comments that painted Mr. Kapitan as pro-gay and a socialist. Then Mr. Wogen lied to the entire community about his knowledge of the mailer, and shortly thereafter, the Daily Chronicle uncovered his dishonesty.

Well, now it appears (in addition to his many other problems - civil and criminal; political, personal, and professional) that Mr. Wogen has been cheating the State of Illinois by not paying tolls when he travels on area interstate highways. As of November 23, 2009, he owed the Illinois Tollway $2,191.10, and if he failed to pay by December 7, 2009, that amount increases to $7,441.10 (to view the official record, click here - and then click the image to enlarge it). So, Mr. Wogen gets to attack Mr. Kapitan for the condition of his (Mr. Kapitan's) home while he (Mr. Wogen) doesn't pay for his use of the toll road?! I don't think so.

It looks like they allow two screw ups before they even do anything.,2008701&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL,1407951&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL
