FBI raided home of former operative of Boss Madigan last month

Chipping away at the greater evil?

From NBC Chicago:
Federal agents raided the home of a former top political aide to Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan and the brother of 13th Ward Ald. Marty Quinn, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation said.

The raid took place last month at the home of Kevin Quinn, located in the 10300 block of South California Avenue in the city’s Beverly neighborhood, sources said.

Neither the FBI nor Kevin Quinn responded to multiple requests for comment. It was not immediately clear what agents sought in executing search warrants, though a source said computers were taken from the home.

No charges were filed against Kevin Quinn, who also could not be reached for comment. It was also unclear whether or not the raid was related to his work for the powerful House speaker, who also heads the state’s Democratic Party.
Quinn worked form Madigan, who is also chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party, for almost 20 years until he was accused of sexual harassment by a former Boss Madigan employee.
