Anti-Violence Program Gone Wrong

(Peoria, IL) -- Lawmakers have wrapped up their hearings on what went wrong with Governor Quinn's 55-million-dollar anti-violence program. Republicans grilled several of Quinn's former top aides for two days this week, hoping they'd admit that the program had ties to the 2010 election. They say Quinn was banking on winning votes in black communities but Quinn's aides denied that. Quinn himself spoke directly to his efforts to win votes during a debate last night, claiming he goes after everyone's vote in Illinois, from tornado victims in Washington to victims of violence in Chicago.
