(Chicago, IL)  The former Chief of Staff to former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is facing federal charges. A federal grand jury issued counts of perjury and attempted obstruction of justice charges against Timothy Mapes. Mapes is the latest person indicted in a bribery scheme involving power company ComEd. Federal officials say Mapes was originally granted immunity in the probe and testified back in March.
