Smith Officially Loses Seat After Conviction Filed by Judge


Derrick Smith is officially out of office… again.

 

Smith has lost his House seat now that a federal judge has officially entered his conviction on bribery and attempted extortion charges.

 

The Chicago Democrat is believed to be the first Illinois lawmaker in history to be expelled from the legislature twice.

 

The House voted to kick Smith out following his indictment on charges that he took a $7,000 bribe.

 

But Smith won a subsequent election and returned to the House. This time, his dismissal is automatic.

 

Democratic party leaders from his district will choose a replacement to serve until the term expires in January.
