Prosecutors subpoena Quinn's anti-violence program

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office subpoenaed records tied to Gov. Pat Quinn’s troubled Neighborhood Initiative Program and then withdrew the request when the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity promised to provide the information, according to a published report Tuesday.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the subpoena asked for program files, notes, memos and correspondence, and the identities of related field auditors and compliance monitors. Officials say the information was given to the state’s attorney Tuesday.

“The director of DCEO Adam Pollet has no tolerance for any misconduct or misuse of funds by our grantees,” Dave Roeder, spokesman for the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, said. “We are actively working with the state’s attorney’s office to provide all the records and information it requests.” The Washington Times has the AP story.
