Description:Another politician from the Chicago area will be in federal court.
This time it’s Cook County Commissioner William Beavers, who is charged with tax evasion.
Federal prosecutors say Beavers spent $226,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses and never paid taxes on it.
They say Beavers also failed to pay taxes on $69,000 in campaign contributions that he placed in a city retirement fund in 2006, in order to more than double his monthly pension.(1:29)
