Happy holidays from one of Illinois elected politicians. Here's a one finger salute...yes, that finger!

Yes, even your elected leaders have bad days. Thomas Gray, the elected Mayor of downstate Chatham, Illinois was caught on video flipping off a citizen.

Edgar County Watchdogs reports that Gray was the focus of an ethics hearing on December 13th in the town of Chatham. He was required to appear before the local Ethics commission for a hearing on grounds that he allegedly violated the village's ethics code.

Here is how Mayor Gray greeted his constituents.

Merry Christmas from Chatham, Illinois!
