CHICAGO (AP) — An ex-campaign worker for Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan’s Democratic organization has been arrested for allegedly violating a protective order.
Kevin Quinn was fired this week for allegedly sending inappropriate text messages to a colleague. Alaina Hampton filed a complaint against Madigan-controlled political funds Monday at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, describing how Quinn treated her.
The Chicago Tribune reports the 41-year-old Quinn was arrested Thursday by Evergreen Park police for violating a protective order by sending text messages and calling another person.
Last month, Quinn pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct for alleged actions during divorce proceedings and received one year of court supervision. Court records show as part of the plea Quinn agreed to abide by the protective order.
