Guilty Plea in the Illinois Health Facilities Board Scandal

From the Chicago Sun-Times... there has been a guilty plea in the Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board scandal (see our previous post here.) Jacob Kiferbaum has agreed to plead guilty to some charges, and to cooperate with the ongoing investigation. Kiferbaum was one of three indicted for a complex set of schemes allegedly to channel money from hospital construction projects, including those at Edward Hospital in Naperville, IL, and the Chicago Medical School, to the firms of the accused. (Note: the Sun-Times ran a very detailed account of the allegations here.)
