WGIL Newsroom . State News 141

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP)–An Illinois Department of Transportation administrator has resigned amid an investigation into his time at the agency.

Agency spokesman Guy Tridgell said Monday that Carmen Iacullo retired April 30.

That was about the time Tridgell says the department turned over information about Iacullo’s tenure to the Office of the Executive Inspector General. Tridgell would not elaborate.

A woman who answered the phone at Iacullo’s Chicago home on Monday said he was not home, then hung up.

Iacullo was assistant to the district engineer in the Schaumburg district office. He made $113,000 last year.
Tridgell says the investigation is not connected to an agency scandal in which as many as 200 people were hired without following rules barring political hiring decisions. That incident is now part of a federal lawsuit.
