Richard Vanecko, Mayor Richard M. Daley's nephew, pleads guilty

While attending a business conference in Arizona as an assignment from his employer, the Katten Muchin Rosenman law firm, he stated that he was feeling ill and disoriented. When he flew back to Chicago following the conference, his family had an ambulance waiting for him at the airport. The ambulance took him to Northwestern Memorial Hospital as soon as the plane landed. Reportedly, he was able to walk to the ambulance from the airplane on his own.

The report asserts that the former mayor of Chicago has kept up a busy schedule since having left public office three years ago. Additionally, he exercises regularly – even when he is away on business travels.

Though the hospital has not released any statement regarding the former mayor’s condition, the family said that he is still in the hospital for monitoring and evaluation which includes a battery of tests.
