John Coli Sr.

We called attention to the corruption scandal of Chicago Teamster boss John Coli back in July.  Recent details have expanded the financial magnitude of his extortion scheme to closer to $325,000. The superseding indictment charges that the scandal started in 2014, and alleges Coli failed to report the income to the U.S. Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service. The government wants to seize a Lakeview home connected to Coli if he can’t come up with the cash.
