County files suit against school Superintendent

July 13, 2009 Monday, the county filed a lawsuit against him seeking repayment of a past due loan. The suit alleges that Flowers engaged in a scheme to defraud Cook County when his office took out a $190 thousand loan last year.

The loan was supposed to be repaid June 30th.

On July 1 investigators raided Flowers' office after an audit revealed he used county money for personal vacations, rental cars and restaurant bills.

Flowers is not charged and has not been available for comment.
