The legacy of Bill Cellini is becoming an issue in the race for Sangamon County auditor.
Democratic challenger Chris Boyster is attacking Republican incumbent Paul Palazzolo for ties to the convicted powerbroker.
Palazzolo says he has donated money to charity in an amount roughly equal to funds he got from Cellini’s Good Government Council, but says he won’t return money he got from two other funds that are partially connected to Cellini.
Boyster is also raising questions about county contracts with the property management firm founded by Cellini and now run by his children.
Palazzolo says the contracts are under review.
