myfoxchicago.com - It may sound like cloak and dagger fiction, but FOX Chicago News has learned something very odd happened Wednesday night on the fifth floor of the Cook County building.
The latest bizarre twist in the ongoing corruption scandal in Stroger's office involves high-tech surveillance experts caught leaving the office of Cook County Board President's office.A deputy sheriff patrolling the building stopped a group of five men leaving Todd Stroger's office around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
One of the men identified himself as the county's Homeland Security Director David Ramos. The other four men were asked to provide identification.
They did, and at least three of them have experience in surveillance and counter-surveillance. Two of the men were identified as Jim Salp and Mike Dennis, former FBI agents who own a Chicago company specializing in "countermeasures and electronic surveillance," according to their website.
