Stanley Moore to replace Beavers on Cook County board

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

A committee of Cook County Democrats has chosen a former state transportation official who just paid off a pending ethics fine to replace a commissioner who was ousted after his tax evasion conviction.

Stanley Moore was chosen Thursday after a dozen people made presentations in an effort to replace former Commissioner William Beavers. Among those seeking the post was former County Board President Todd Stroger.

Beavers was convicted last month of tax evasion for not declaring as income campaign cash he gambled away on slot machines. The law required that he immediately resign.

Moore was fined $3,000 for campaigning in 2008 during work hours. The Executive Ethics Commission says he paid the fine Tuesday.

Moore will serve the rest of Beavers' term, which ends in December 2014.
