Cops: Parolee claimed to be alderman's aide to collect money - Unlike real parolees working for the Chicago Aldermen...

A colored parolee with a record of drug convictions tried to pass himself off as an aide to a West Side alderman to solicit cash for a fake charitable event, authorities said this morning.

Leon Swan, 52, was charged late Monday with false impersonation of a public employee and felony possession of a controlled substance, according to Chicago police.

Swan claimed to be an aide to Ald. Michael Chandler when he approached the pastor of the Faith Community Baptist Church on Sunday, seeking donations for a non-existent charitable event to be held at the Goodman Theatre.

The pastor became suspicious and went to police, who arrested Swan and another man. Officers found a small amount of heroin on Swan, police said.

Neither Chandler nor the church pastor could be immediately reached for comment.

Swan, of the 2900 block of West Adams Street, was on parole for a 2010 drug conviction, one of about a half-dozen convictions dating back to the late 1980s, according to court records.

He is expected to appear in Central Bond Court today, police said.

What a joke!

If this bum just filled out some simple paperwork, he could have been legit! Aldermen will LOVE to hire dirtbag criminals. Birds of a feather after all.

Some men are lazy as fuck...

City Hall and Springfield do that 'legitimately' all the time and I do not cotton to the tactic from them! Bullshit is at times just as deadly if not more so then a firearm.

This dick kisser is no better then City Hall nor the Quinn boys.

How did the guy get caught you ask? He was doing a better job of being an alderho than the reall alderho!

I like his crime that this dude did, as a short con is generally the white man's game. He's just a grifter like the alderman in the city.

Leo Swan voted for Obama. Then told him he was his aide.

Chandler used to have some other shitbird running around the West Side all over 16th St, Madison and Roosevelt soliciting "donations" (freebies) and would say he was Chandler's "Administrative Aide" and it used to make me crazy. I brought it up to him once that this dickhead was flaunting the Alderman's name and he just shrugged his shoulders. For all I know this mutt was just an unpaid gopher (like all the white aldermen have) who was just a hanger-onner waiting for some political spoils.

I never checked his rap sheet but he might be a graduate of the Illinois Penal University too.

Typical...or TNBS as Uncle Lar used to say.
