Sources: Weller Expected to Retire

Posted September 19, 2007 at 4:42pm

Besieged Rep. Jerry Weller (R-Ill.) is expected to announce as early as Thursday that he is retiring from Congress, weeks after a Chicago newspaper exposed his questionable land deals in Central America.

Republican sources, who confirmed Weller’s intentions, were uncertain late Wednesday about when Weller would announce his retirement decision.
