GOV, North Riverside hires new law firm [NR]

Suburban Life (Gina Kenny):
The North Riverside Village Board has appointed the law firm of Mahoney, Silverman & Cross Ltd. as the new village attorney.

Mahoney, Silverman & Cross has a variety of company and governmental clients including the villages of Channahon, Frankfort and Shorewood; the city of Aurora; Founders Bank and Waste Management Inc., according to law firm founding member David Silverman.

Members of the firm have only given $2,400 to Illinois pols since 1999. (Good) But four of the six contributions were to Darrell Sanders of Frankfort. (Bad)

This sort of logrolling from elected officials to law firms to campaign funds looks like money laundering from the outside--money laundering protected by attorney-client privilege.
