Federal prosecutors are pursuing an appeal for the sentence of former Chicago Alderman Ed Vrdolyak.Vrdolyak got probation for his fraud conviction last month.

The judge called prosecutors greedy for wanting Vrdolyak to spend more than three years in prison for his crimes.

Vrdolyak pleaded guilty last fall to scheming to pocket a bogus finder's fee in a Gold Coast real estate deal.
