A grand jury has subpoenaed the emails of three former top advisers to Pat Quinn as part of a federal investigation into the governor’s troubled anti-violence program.

The July 28th subpoena seeks messages from the state email accounts of Quinn’s one-time chief of staff Jack Lavin, former Chief Operating Officer Andrew Ross and former adviser on social justice issues Billy Ocasio.

A state audit of the now-shuttered program found money unaccounted for and pervasive mismanagement.

The subpoena was first reported Saturday by the Chicago Tribune, which obtained it from the Quinn administration through an open records request.

Spokesman Grant Klinzman confirmed the report and released the documents along with a statement saying, “The Governor has zero tolerance for any mismanagement and took decisive action to fix the problems long ago.”
