Former Milwaukee Alderman Charged With Taking Bribes For Downtown Strip Club

Willie Wade Now Heads Milwaukee County Employment Board

A former Milwaukee alderman who heads Milwaukee County’s workforce development board has been charged with three counts of wire fraud by the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to a federal grand jury indictment, Willie Wade, 56, who served on the Milwaukee Common Council from 2003 until early 2016, received $30,000 in cash from a Milwaukee strip club operator in exchange for promising a current alderman’s vote in favor of approving a license for a downtown club.

That alderman, Khalif Rainey, was reportedly not aware Wade was using his name and never offered to accept any bribe...
