States Attorney Candidate Wants to Investigate Government Corruption Locally

The challenger for Sangamon County State’s Attorney is promising that if he’s elected, he will form a special unit in the office to investigate public corruption cases.


Ron Stradt accuses the state’s attorney’s office of “turning a blind eye” to those cases, even as the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago prosecuted cases of state government corruption involving actions right here in Springfield.


Stradt, a Democrat, says the retirement of Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald shows the need for local prosecutors to be more aggressive in such cases.
