The state's top prosecutor opened a criminal inquiry Friday into whether the governor's chief of staff, M. Lisa Moody, lied May 16 when she testified at a legislative hearing that she didn't read an ethics memo that it turned out she had edited.
Chief State's Attorney Christopher L. Morano sent letters Friday afternoon to legislators in both parties, seeking any information "relative to possible criminal violations" mentioned in "recent published media reports."
Morano didn't mention Moody specifically in his letter, but when asked about it after it surfaced at the Capitol, Morano said his office was "conducting a preliminary review and gathering some facts to see if an in-depth investigation" was warranted in areas including "the chief of staff's testimony before the committee."
Rell has to ask for her resignation now right? Can Lisa Moody even perform her job effectively now?
