Feds want emails on Quinn’s anti-violence program


Governor Pat Quinn’s controversial anti-violence program is under federal investigation.

A grand jury is demanding emails of five people who helped run the $55 million program; it was launched during Quinn’s re-election campaign four years ago, and characterized by critics little more than a political slush fund for the governor.

The program’s former director and four other people are being targeted by the grand jury subpoenas.

A Quinn spokesman says the governor’s office is cooperating fully.
