Latest AT&T customer news: Feds considering criminal charges involving AT&T subsidiary in offshoot of Madigan probe

From Chicago Tribune:

Federal prosecutors investigating alleged schemes to influence former House Speaker Michael Madigan are considering filing criminal charges against a subsidiary of AT&T involving a 2017 consulting contract, the phone giant revealed in a federal regulatory filing this week.

The Tribune reported in July 2020 that AT&T had been subpoenaed by federal prosecutors amid a widening criminal probe encircling Madigan’s political operation. The subpoena from U.S. Attorney John Lausch’s office was part of an inquiry into whether companies improperly used a stable of consultants with ties to the longtime House speaker as they pushed for legislation in Springfield, the newspaper reported.

This week, AT&T revealed in a filing with the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission that Lausch’s office had informed the company “they are considering filing a charge” against Illinois Bell Telephone Company LLC, an AT&T subsidiary.

The potential charge involved “a single, nine-month consulting contract in 2017″ worth $22,500, the filing stated. The filing said Illinois Bell has been cooperating since 2019 in the “widely reported investigation of certain elected Illinois politicians and related parties for corruption.”
