Gov. Pat Quinn’s anti-violence program is under scrutiny from federal prosecutors, Early & Often reports.
Federal prosecutors are looking into Gov. Pat Quinn’s embattled anti-violence program, having requested information from the Illinois Comptroller’s Office.
Authorities called the Comptroller’s Office in late March requesting information tied to the program, Early & Often has confirmed.
“We have been contacted by the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative,” spokesman Brad Hahn said following an inquiry from the Chicago Sun-Times political portal E&O. “There was a request for information, I can’t go into the nature of what they were looking for.”
