Prime Suspect: Dorothy Brown, Cook County Circuit Clerk
Nickname: Clerk A
Status: Under federal investigation
A mainstay on the FBI docket, Dorothy “Clerk A” Brown has been under federal investigation for 6 years. Her corrupt acts have just recently resurfaced in headlines as federal prosecutors stated in a court document that the grand jury testimony of one Brown’s top aides at the time was so full of lies that it “affected the government’s ability to file charges against Dorothy Brown.” The yet to be filed charges against Brown of course relate to her scheme to accept bribes of $10,000 to $15,000 for jobs, promotions, and raises within her office.
