Stroger spokesman defends furniture purchase

April 27, 2010 (CHICAGO)

James Ramos says, it was to "save the next president for criticism."

On Sunday, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed first raised questions about the furniture buying. Stroger has just eight months left in office after losing in the primary.

His staff confirmed a new desk and a floor-to-ceiling cabinet was recently delivered to the office of Stroger spokesman -- and longtime pal -- Eugene Mullins.

Ramos argues there's currently not enough furniture to go around.
