July 23, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- ABC7 has learned Chicago's 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore did not attend a White House event Tuesday, where he was supposed to have been honored. On Monday, Moore said he spoke with the FBI about an ethics case involving alleged campaign work in his aldermanic office and the firing of an employee in 2009. He denies any wrongdoing. White House officials said they became aware of the Inspector General's report on Monday and decided to hold the honor until the results of the FBI investigation are complete.Oops! Too late.
