Mayor Mike Houston has asked Attorney General Lisa Madigan to investigate the destruction of Springfield police internal affairs files.

Houston’s letter to Madigan acknowledges that the files were the subject of pending Freedom of Information Act requests when they were destroyed late last month.


The letter also contends that only 30 files were destroyed… a pending lawsuit alleges more than 70 files were eliminated.


The mayor’s request puts him out in front of several Springfield aldermen, who have introduced their own ordinance requesting an outside investigation of the controversy.
