Former Chicago Worker Sues City, Says She Was Fired by Alderman for Cooperating with FBI

A former 12th Ward employee is suing the city and her former boss, Alderman George Cardenas, after she said she was fired for answering questions from the FBI about “illegal hiring practices and other illegal operations,” The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The whistleblower lawsuit claims she was illegally terminated after cooperating with federal authorities on an investigation.

Cardenas fired back, saying he is not the subject of an FBI probe.

“This is nothing more than a smear tactic,” he said of the lawsuit. “ I am not, nor have I ever been, part of any federal investigation, ever.”

Alderman’s office was under investigation by the city’s Inspector General following complaints that Cardenas was using city resources, including employees, to handle election-related activities.
