Law means corrupt officials will forfeit profits

July 11, 2010

One law will require elected officials convicted of public corruption to forfeit profits from the corrupt activity.

The other law prohibits the use of state funds to finance a portrait of a governor who has been impeached and removed from office.

The new law means taxpayers will not have to pay for a portrait of Rod Blagojevich.

However, the law allows for his portrait to be hung in the capitol along with those of other former governors.
