Otto Kerner (Democrat, 1961-68)
Convicted in 1973 of bribery, conspiracy, income tax evasion, mail fraud and perjury in connection with money he earned from racetrack stock. Kerner is pictured here in 1964 gag-playing a Chicago-made guitar for photographers at a 1964 economic development meeting in Chicago that featured products produced in-state. "I used to play a ukulele," Kerner told the photographers.
