$70G chauffeur for HR chief of staff, both with records. Lover’s spat:
she said, he says. These are some of Illinois’ finest in federal court. Carlos the chauffeur says Teyonda the official put it to him while sharing a bed in a crowded hotel “on a two-day state business trip”!
She called him a “boy toy,” he says. He’s 36, she’s 58. The state, also known as the Land of Lincoln, tried to get the case pitched but couldn’t.
Carlos rebuffed her while lying next to her.
When asked why he didn’t move to a sofa in the suite, [he] said, “I was scared.”
As in scaredy-cat, if you ask me. Anyhow, he was fired soon after the hotel episode in which nothing happened, for leaving a state car in a restricted O’Hare lot while he went on vacation. Not the first time he used the car for his own purposes, say court records.
Teyonda says they had to bunk together because there was no room in that inn for the two of them. But the couch was there for him, she says.
But Carlos was not alone in personal use of government stuff. Teyonda once had him pick up her dry cleaning on state time. She has also used several names for herself over the years, has a conviction, and has several Social Security numbers. (Look, you can always use another.) He has her beat in the conviction arena, with three. We are so lucky to live in this state.
