Gonzalez Sues Faso Alleging Slander (Video/Story)


Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- You may feel the need for a shower after watching this.

From the Southtown Star:

Chicago Heights mayoral candidate David Gonzalez on Thursday filed a lawsuit against his opponent, Joe Faso, claiming Faso accused him in mailings and YouTube videos of selling drugs out of his accounting firm, Gonzalez & Associates, P.C., 2619 Chicago Road, Chicago Heights.

The mailings and videos also claim the city pays Gonzalez’s home mortgage, according to the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

The campaign documents say Gonzalez would allow drugs to be sold out of city hall if he were elected, the suit says. It says the mailings carried the city of Chicago Heights official seal, which falsely reflected that the documents were official.
