New Round of Subpoenas For Retired Illinois Lawmaker

Federal prosecutors are taking a closer look at a Chicago lawmaker who recently retired.


The Chicago Tribune reports the U.S. Attorney’s Office has issued a new round of subpoenas seeking information about a scholarship fund named after retired Representative Connie Howard, and asking for records from an Illinois House committee that she chaired.


Howard oversaw the House computer technology committee, and at the same time sponsored the scholarship program that bore her name, which reportedly used state grant dollars to provide scholarships to undergraduate students.


The subpoenas were issued days after Howard stepped down for what she called “personal reasons.”
