Another Candidate Out?
A federal grand jury has issued subpoenas for records involving dozens of state grants for after-school, job training and other programs, some of which were sponsored by state Sen. Rickey Hendon, a Chicago mayoral candidate.
Federal investigators were seeking any state agency records about dealings with more than 50 individuals and nearly 40 entities, according to copies of Aug. 3 subpoenas to the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education that were obtained by the Tribune.
The Associated Press reported Thursday that the grand jury subpoenas also were delivered to three other state agencies.
