Report: Accused Lawmaker Will Testify Before Illinois House Committee


A state lawmaker accused of bribery plans to appear and testify before an Illinois House committee that will determine whether efforts to expel him from the House should go forward. 

 

A lawyer for Representative Derrick Smith tells Illinois Issues magazine that Smith wants to appear before that special House committee to discuss, quote, “where he is and his continued desire to serve and represent the people in his district.” 

 

But it’s not clear if Smith will directly address questions about federal accusations that he took a seven-thousand dollar bribe in exchange for helping with a state grant application.  That House committee hearing could be held as early as this week.
