Despite his indictment for allegedly taking a 7-thousand-dollar bribe and having been removed from the Illinois House, voters give former state Representative Derrick Smith his seat back.  Smith won his bid for the 10th District on the West Side, defeating challenger Lance Tyson. Despite his legal troubles, Smith had refused to resign his seat or drop out of the race.  

Despite his win, he could be removed by the House again if he is convicted on the bribery charge next year.
