Talibdin "T.D." El-Amin, a state legislator representing parts of the city's north side, is expected to make an appearance in U.S. District Court tomorrow morning in order to plead guilty to a public corruption charge.

El-Amin recently withdrew from his pursuit of the state senate seat vacated by Jeff Smith, who pleaded guilty to public corruption charges last month. (Smith will be sentenced in November.)

Rumors about El-Amin being the subject of a federal inquiry have been swirling since he dropped out of the race to replace Smith.
