Lawmakers Delay NRI Probe
(Chicago, IL) -- Lawmakers have decided to go ahead and delay their probe into Governor Quinn's anti-violence program, but not without having a bit of political theatre first. Only one of the seven witnesses who'd been subpoenaed to testify about the program showed up to a hearing in Chicago yesterday, the rest sent their attorneys. Republicans weren't happy about that and they grilled the attorneys about handing over emails and other documents that could give insight into the program. Republicans and Democrats sparred throughout most of the hearing, with a 15-minute debate on what time they'd break for lunch, and about an hour debate over when they'd call the witnesses back to testify.
