Lawmaker Won’t Accept Salary For Three Days In Office

The man who served just three days as an Illinois lawmaker before resigning amid questions about his personal conduct will not accept the nearly $6,000 salary he could have claimed for his 70 hours on the job.

Under state law, Illinois lawmakers are entitled to a full month’s salary for working any part of that month, meaning Edward Kodatt could legally have accepted the full amount. But Comptroller Susana Mendoza says he has declined the paycheck.

Mendoza is urging lawmakers to change the law and close that potentially-costly loophole.
