Former McCook Mayor Jeffrey Tobolski Charged In Extortion Scheme

CHICAGO (CBS) -- The former mayor of McCook and Cook County Commissioner Jeff Tobolski is now charged with conspiracy to commit extortion and filing a false tax return.

The feds raided the McCook Village Hall last September.

Around the same time they also raided former Sen. Martin Sandoval's home and offices. That warrant revealed federal investigators were looking into numerous companies and people, including Tobolski.

Sandoval has since admitted to taking bribes.

Tobolski stepped down in March.
