Former State Official Indicted for Grant Fraud


The top federal prosecutor in Central Illinois says fraud is not the norm for state government contracts and grants... even though 13 people have now been indicted in an ongoing investigation of exactly that kind of fraud.

 

The latest is the one-time chief of staff to former state Public Health director Eric Whitaker.

 

She's accused of taking $433,000 in kickbacks in exchange for handing out contracts and grants.

 

U.S. Attorney James Lewis says most state grants and contracts are awarded properly and fairly... but says his office will keep working to weed out the instances of wrongdoing.
