Scrutinized Secretary of State Employee Has Ties to Springfield City Hall

A woman who is now under scrutiny for her connections to Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White also has… or at least had… a connection to Springfield City Hall.


Marlene Liss is a longtime friend of White’s and held a $75,000-a-year job in his office.


She recently left that post after an inspector general’s report uncovered discrepancies in her educational record and found that she is part of a federal investigation into allegations of Medicaid fraud.


Liss was also appointed in 2011 to serve on Mayor Mike Houston’s homeless advisory commission.


A Houston spokesman says Liss never attended a meeting, and her one-year term was not renewed.


However, she remains listed as a commission member on the city’s website.
