Paul Wigoda

Former Chicago Ald. Paul Wigoda (49th) in a photo from an unidentified location in November 1971. Wigoda, who shared law offices with another disgraced alderman, Tom Keane, was convicted in 1974 of taking a $50,000 bribe in exchange for his support for a zoning change for the former Edgewater Golf Club in a nearby ward. After serving a year and a day in prison, Wigoda won reinstatement as a lawyer and went into business as a zoning attorney. His son, Gary, who shared a law practice with him, is now one of Chicago's busiest zoning lawyers.
