Chicago Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno said his car was stolen. In fact, he filed a police report last month declaring the alleged theft.
Now, Moreno says it was all just a big misunderstanding.
WGN’s Meghan Dwyer spoke to the woman behind the wheel — a single mother who said she was shocked to be arrested after Moreno loaned her the car.
Moreno chalked it all up to a misunderstanding.
“The car is not crashed. The car is in perfect condition,” Moreno said. “She’s a friend of mine. We dated for a while. She’s a single mom. I was trying to help out. She was down on her luck and needed a car. That’s end of conversation.”
Moreno was asked if he was trying to falsify a police report.
“It’s political season. I get it. You throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. This is something that is absolutely, 100 percent false,” Moreno said. “Absolutely not. I did exactly what I was supposed to do.”
Man, Chicago is truly crazy-town these days.
