An anti-violence program launched by Governor Pat Quinn four years ago is now facing an investigation.

It was called the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative Program, and it cost $55 million.

Quinn billed it as an effort to target crime in some of Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods; but some Republicans say it was just a slush fund and a ploy to get Quinn re-elected.

Now the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office will investigate where the money went, and whether the program actually accomplished anything.
