"Lashing out at Tribune disclosures of widespread vote fraud and election day irregularities, Kusper cited the law the reporter allegedly broke, but under sharp questioning admitted he himself has worked as an attorney on private legal matters while he has been board chairman. . ." 

In a press conference, chairman of the Chicago Board of Election Comissioners Stanley Kusper accused William Mullen, the reporter who worked undercover as a clerk in Kusper's office, of breaking the law because he technically held another job while collecting $20-a-day as a clerk, which is forbidden under Illinois election law.
