Fact of the Day: Last Republican Mayor of Chicago

The last Republican to serve as mayor of Chicago, Illinois was William Hale Thompson whose last year in office was 1931. He has been ranked among the worst mayors in history, especially when it came to ethics. He served two separate terms as mayor and returned to office with the help of the legendary gangster Al Capone.
