Illinois state Sen. James DeLeo (D-Chicago) — who has made public statements questioning the existence of the Chicago mob — was credited by former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s office with trying to help the widow of one of Chicago’s most infamous slain mobsters.
The Northwest Side lawmaker is listed in a secret hiring database the then-governor’s aides kept as the political sponsor for Anne Spilotro, the widow of murdered mob associate Michael Spilotro.
