The Chief State’s Attorney’s office said officials have found no wrongdoing regarding the database Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz maintained.
Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane announced late Friday afternoon that he found no laws were broken in his review of allegations that Bysiewicz used her office to create a database of constituents that she could use during her political campaigns.
“On the basis of that review and an examination of the relevant statues, the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney has concluded that no investigation is warranted into the matters addressed by the report,” Kane wrote in a letter to Bysiewicz.
“The Chief State’s Attorney’s letter confirms the conclusion of the Attorney General’s report of August 5, 2010 that there was no violation of the law,“ Bysiewicz said. “This also confirms what we have said all along: that the database we use is a very valuable tool to provide constituent service and manage the many Constitutional and statutory functions of this office. We pleased that this matter is now concluded.”
Bysiewicz had been a candidate for attorney general before the state Supreme Court disqualified her in May because she didn’t have the requisite 10 years of legal experience
