Thieving Ain't Easy: Oglesby Files For Unemployment

2010_10_20_oglesby.JPG Thieving was easy for for former Todd Stroger aide Carla Oglesby. Holding on to the nearly $300,000 she allegedly embezzled from the County was a different matter.

Oglesby filed for unemployment today, which shocked some county officials. Depending on who you talk to in county government, Oglesby was either fired once she was arrested or resigned. Doesn't either option prevent you from receiving unemployment benefits?

File this under "brass tacks," folks.
