Audit Commission Agrees To Reconvene In October; GOP Says Quinn May Not Be Complying With Records Requests

The Legislative Audit Commission has agreed to reconvene on October 8th to begin questioning former Quinn administration officials about their role in the governor’s botched anti-violence program. 


The panel had bickered for most of the previous day about when and how to question those witnesses… after the U.S. Attorney’s Office asked state lawmakers to delay their investigation to avoid interfering with a federal criminal probe.  Lawmakers also agree that if the feds ask them to stay away from a particular witness or subject area, they will.


Some Republicans on the Legislative Audit Commission say Governor Pat Quinn and a former top aide may be dodging demands to provide all documentation related to Quinn’s anti-violence program. 


The panel is considering going to court to enforce a request for records from former Central Management Services director Malcolm Weems.  And Republicans say Governor Pat Quinn may not have turned over everything that’s being sought… but Democratic state Senator Andy Manar says he thinks the governor has complied with the commission’s demands.
