Quinn aide resigns after probe revealed

BY DAVE McKINNEY AND CHRIS FUSCO Staff Reporters ,Chicago Sun Times
A top aide to Gov. Quinn has left her $119,158-a-year job amid a state government probe into whether she had done political work on state time.
Carolyn Brown Hodge, Quinn's deputy chief of staff, resigned late Friday after the Chicago Sun-Times asked the governor's office about the situation.
Hodge's state computer was seized by the Office of the Executive Inspector General to determine whether the equipment might have been used for any political purposes, a source said.
Quinn spokesman Bob Reed confirmed Hodge's resignation but would neither confirm nor deny the existence of a state probe into Hodge, who had served under Quinn since he was lieutenant governor.
