This is really getting to be too much.
Cook County Board President John Stroger’s South Side Chicago home has been sold, real estate listings indicate.
The home on East 91st Street was put on the market April 20 at an asking price of $289,000, the records from the Multiple Listing Service indicate. Tuesday, the home was placed under contract, meaning that someone put in a bid and it was accepted. It was not known what the house sold for or when the closing will be.
Chicago Alderman Todd Stroger did not return calls for comment. After initially making his father’s doctors available for comment, Todd Stroger has declined to get specific about his father’s medical condition after his March stroke.
Jay Stewart, executive director of the Better Government Association, said the sale does not raise questions about Stroger’s residency status in regards to the presidency, but it does call into question his commissioner status, which requires him to live in his 4th District. The Chicago Tribune has reported John Stroger is now staying in a downtown condo, far outside the 4th District.
