Ald. Willie Cochran (20th) is under federal investigation in connection with his use of political campaign funds, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Most of those payments were disclosed by Cochran belatedly — months after he was required by state disclosure laws — in a series of amended campaign disclosure reports.
