2 Chicago-area mayors caught up in federal investigations appear headed to new terms in municipal elections

Two suburban Chicago mayors entangled in law enforcement investigations seemed to be headed to victory in Tuesday’s municipal elections, early returns showed.

In south suburban Crestwood, voters appeared to be backing Mayor Lou Presta’s attempt to win a third term despite facing federal charges that he accepted a $5,000 bribe to promote the red-light camera company SafeSpeed LLC, then lied about it to the FBI and IRS.
