David Phelps


The former assistant secretary at the Illinois Department of Transportation says a report on improper hiring at the agency mischaracterizes what he told investigators.

Former congressman David Phelps disputed a report the Office of Executive Inspector General released Monday. The report says Phelps did "little work" and mostly engaged in "misconduct and abuse." Phelps says he told investigators he answered requests for information from job-seekers but did nothing improper.
