IL state senator wants to know: Were $55 million in funds directed to Governor Quinn's moribund anti-violence program, Neighborhood Recovery Initiative?
"Republican lawmaker wants Gov. Pat Quinn to testify before a legislative commission over a scandal-plagued anti-violence program. State Sen. Matt Murphy of Palatine is a frequent critic of Quinn. He claimed Wednesday that Quinn is 'hiding' as an audit commission probes the Chicago Democrat's approximately $55 million Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. A state audit has outlined 'pervasive' problems with the 2010 program." -- Associated Press
