Teachers' union VP ousted

CHICAGO Late Tuesday night, the union voted overwhelmingly to oust Ted Dallas after finding him guilty of lavish spending at high-end restaurants, among other purported misdeeds.

Dallas had been a member of the union since 1970 and was a teacher at Wells High School prior to becoming vice president.

Dallas is the first-ever elected leader who has been ousted in the union's history.

ABC7 tried but was not able to reach Dallas Wednesday for a comment.
