InfoA ghost payrolling investigation brought down Democratic state Sen. Bruce Farley, who resigned his North Side Chicago seat after pleading guilty to mail fraud. The charge stemmed from a no-show job Farley held in the Cook County treasurer's office from 1990 to August 1995, where he earned $173,752 in salary and other benefits. Farley was indicted in June 1997, along with county Treasurer Edward J. Rosewell, the treasurer's chief deputy, James A. Fuglsang, and Democratic state Rep. Miguel A. Santiago of Chicago's West Side.

After the indictment, Farley lost a primary run against Lisa Madigan, House Speaker Michael Madigan's daughter. She won the general election and was named by district committeemen to serve the last two days of Farley's term this month. Farley served in the House from 1973 to 1993, when he moved to the Senate.
