Sen. Rachelle Crowe among three recommended for US Attorney by Durbin and Duckworth

Thursday, Jun 24, 2021

* Illinois Business Journal

Ann Callis and Rachelle Crowe, both prominent Metro East Democrats, are among those being recommended as United States attorney by the state’s two U.S. senators.

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, both Democrats, sent a list of names to the White House on Wednesday to be considered for two U.S. attorney positions in the Central District and Southern District of Illinois and for three U.S. Marshal positions in the Northern District, Central District, and Southern District of Illinois.

Based on recommendations made by screening committees the Senators established in each district, Durbin and Duckworth have forwarded the names of the following nine individuals to President Biden for consideration:

    • Southern District of Illinois United States Attorney: Ann Callis; Rachelle Crowe; Brandon Zanotti
    • Southern District of Illinois United States Marshal: David Davis; Brad Maxwell
    • Northern District of Illinois United States Marshal: LaDon Reynolds
    • Central District of Illinois United States Attorney: Gregory Harris; Michael Havera
    • Central District of Illinois United States Marshal: Brendan Heffner

    Ann Callis would be a great choice. Finally, property taxpayers who don’t pay their bills on time can be represented at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

    Great choices. Wonder who’ll take over Rachelle Crowe’s seat once she gets the appointment. Will be a tough one to keep next year given Madison has trended right.

    Man it’s good to be a Democrat. All you have to do is run for Congress and lose and you’re a shoe in for great jobs infinitum.

    It’s funny because it’s utterly partisan and ignorant.

    I mean, even John Kass knows it’s a “Conbine”, lol

    To the post,

    As these positions get to a point of nomination, the Northern District’s US Attorney is still digging into cases and investigations that seemingly are endless. That job in that jurisdiction seems much heavier a lift that what it use to be worth?

    In the Central District:

    Harris is a current assistant U.S. Attorney
    Havera is Christian County’s current State’s Attorney

    Heffner is being retained from the previous administration.

    Look at all those Public Defenders and defense attorneys. /s

    ==Look at all those Public Defenders and defense attorneys.==
    Gregory Harris worked in the Illinois Office of the State Appellate Defender. Michael Havera was the Chief Public Defender for Christian County.

    Rachelle Crowe would be an excellent choice. Though I would hate to lose her. As an aside, my 6th great granduncle was the first U.S Marshal in Southern Illinois. First appointed by President James Monroe and then re-appointed by President John Quincy Adams.


  9. - Justin - Thursday, Jun 24, 21 @ 5:17 pm:

    Either Ann Callis or Rachelle Aud Crowe would be good choices, though I prefer Callis slightly because it would keep Crowe in her red-trending seat and have a fighting chance to keep it in 2022 for the Dems.

    Zanotti might be the underdog but he would make a really good U.S. Attorney,
