Milwaukee Alderman Jim Bohl under investigation
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office confirmed that Alderman Jim Bohl is under criminal investigation for misconduct in public office.
The Journal-Sentinel was first to report the probe, which is focused on Bohl's efforts to have two convicted sex offenders evicted from a property within his district on the city's northwest side.
He reportedly hit a landlord with a number of code violations, then wiped the record clean once the offenders had been removed.
Common Council President Willie Hines released a statement Thursday reassuring residents that this was an isolated matter.
