Feds subpoenaed Harmon's office for docs on Chinatown property
Federal authorities subpoenaed Illinois Senate President Don Harmon's office earlier this summer as part of the expansive public corruption probe that has roiled the highest levels of city and state politics.
Chicago U.S. Attorney John Lausch's office demanded Harmon turn over any documents related to a parcel of land at Cermak Road and Wentworth Avenue. That state-owned property was one topic of a conversation secretly recorded by the FBI in 2014 involving Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, former 25th Ward Ald. Danny Solis and two Chinatown businessmen.
One of those businessmen has since been charged with fraud, while Solis was revealed to have worn a wire for the feds.
