CHICAGO - A member of the Illinois House is facing of bribery charges after he dug $2500 out of the foot of his bed, but he still claims he's not guilty.
Jury selection started Wednesday for Illinois Democrat State Rep. Derrick Smith's bribery trial in Chicago.
Smith pled not guilty to charges of accepting $7000 from a day care operator that wanted a state grant.
Prosecutors say the evidence includes a confession Smith made to the FBI on the day of his 2012 arrest. They say he even took agents to his house and retrieved $2,500 in cash from the foot of his bed. He allegedly said it was leftover bribe money.
