"I'm shocked," Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider said when told Oglesby returned to work today. He said Stroger's decision to return his former campaign spokesperson to the payroll is tantamount to "thumbing his nose" at the County Board.
Stroger spokesman Gene Mullins confirmed Oglesby was back on the job today. "The President needs her back," Mullins said.
Last week county commissioners voted almost unanimously to strip Stroger of his power to hire, fire and give out raises. He vetoed that Tuesday.
