Democratic candidate for 1st District County Commissioner, Isaac "Ike" Carothers, meets with voters in Chicago March 13, 2014. Carothers, a former Chicago alderman, was sentenced to 28 months for bribery and tax fraud. He was released from prison in late 2011. Carothers, whose conviction bars him from running again for his old job of alderman, said he is running for county commissioner because he wants to continue in public service.
