Mayor Irvin’s BFF and the Aurora CIO investigated by the FBI? Part two!

Mayor Irvin’s BFF and the Aurora CIO investigated by the FBI? Part two!

At the end of part one we determined there were a number of unanswered question in regard to what, by any stretch of the imagination, appears to be a clear-cut case of pay to play on the part of Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin’s handpicked CIO, Michael Pegues.

Though this one has a unique twist. By the Aurora Police Department’s own Incident Report, the solicited “contribution” was intended to go to NexGen entertainment, a private company owned by Pegues. And after they refused to succumb to this blackmail, that company lost three separate Aurora and Kane County jobs.

Those lingering question are:

1. Is there an ongoing Federal investigation?

2. If there is no ongoing investigation, who derailed it?

3. What made Michael Pegues think he could get away with it?

4. Why is Michael Pegues still employed by the City of Aurora?

So, let’s tackle them one-by-one.

And you can read those answers right here!

  1. Though I don’t always agree with you I do like reading your articles. That being said, why does a reader need to jump through several different sites to read the complete story? And in order to comment one has to set up another account on the final site.

    Regarding this story. Couldn’t it be possible for the Chicago FBI to determine that there isn’t an actual case here?

    1. Tom,

      Sorry about the delay in responding but the podcast is taking a lot of time right now. And our general move to the DOA Podcast is also the reason I’m now linking to full columns there. Eventually that will be the main website.

      As for they’re being no case – that isn’t the case. The same incident report I liberally quoted made it abundantly clear that the FBI picked up the case.

      Jeff
