Quinn releases roughly 2,000 emails in probe

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Associated Press) - Gov. Pat Quinn's administration has released thousands of emails to a panel of lawmakers investigating his troubled anti-violence program.

Senate Republican spokeswoman Patty Schuh says members of the Legislative Audit Commission received an estimated 2,000 emails linked to the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative on Friday and are currently reviewing their contents.

Schuh says the emails came at the request of the bipartisan commission. They're expected to be discussed during hearings about the $54.5 million program scheduled Wednesday and Thursday in Chicago.

The commission is also expected to discuss a federal request to suspend interviews of those connected to the program for 90 days.

That request came after federal subpoenas were issued for emails of top officials involved in the program. Some of those same officials were also subpoenaed by the commission.

    It's been months since the last snowflake fell, but Chicago residents are still hitting potholes that make your teeth chatter. Which is why one Southside resident was puzzled when construction crews began repaving a road that virtually no one uses.
