KLEPT, Recorder of Deed employee sues; alleges firing political

A 25-year Cook County government employee laid off because of budget cuts filed suit Tuesday, alleging he was cut because he's not politically active. Alfred Hale worked for Recorder of Deeds Gene Moore and says there were others who had far less experience than he but were allowed to keep their jobs because they were politically active. The suit points to two men who are business managers, like Hale, but have less seniority. Records show both are politically active and still have their jobs. Calls to Moore's office were not returned.

Thanks to AP for the tip.

  • Now this can open up a can of worms for Eugene.

    If they start investigating this at District 209...it will implicate him, Chrissy Welch and the majority board.

    Can't wait...

  • The President of the Cook County Bar Association, Deborah Fortia,a resident of Oak Park and an attorney for the recorder of mis-deeds was also terminated. She was "let go" a couple of months ago because she doesn't "do politics" for Moore. I hope she goes after him big time!

  • Of course you didn't get return call. Your not a reporter and you don't work for a paper and you don't have press credentials. Why in the hell would anybody call you back?

  • The entity saying Moore didn't return phone calls was the Sun-Times.

  • The only call Eugene Moore will be able to make is to his attorney, which is not Chris "Lizard" Welch, because they will be locked up together.

    Cell mates or bed mates?
