La Shawn K. Ford Wikipedia
La Shawn K. Ford is a Democratic member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 8th District since 2007. He is currently a real estate entrepreneur, founder of Ford Desired Real Estate.
On November 29, 2012, Ford was indicted on charges of bank fraud alleging he provided misleading evidence to obtain a $500,000 extension on a line of credit. The charges state he used the money for personal expenses rather than rehabilitating an owned property, as stated in the loan documentation.
On August 4, 2014, all 17 felony counts of bank fraud and false information against Ford were dropped by federal prosecutors in exchange for his pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor income tax charge, and Ford's trial was removed from the federal docket.
In the past decade, Representative Ford has received $16,350 in campaign contributions from labor unions. This sum includes:$3,000 from AFL-CIO
$2,650 from AFSCME
$200 from Illinois Education Association
$2,500 from the Illinois Federation of Teachers
$7,000 from the Chicago Teachers Union
