Feds: Sexual tryst, $10K bonus in state grant scheme

A former top state public health official and a Chicago businessman who got caught in a sexual tryst quickly steered a $10,000 bonus to the person who walked in on them as part of a state grant fraud scheme, federal prosecutors allege. The revelation surfaced in court papers on the eve of a money-laundering trial that is part of an ongoing federal investigation into alleged abuse of social service and faith-based grants at the Illinois Department of Public Health and other agencies dating to the tenure of now-imprisoned former Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
