An alleged affair between two Mclean County judges is getting the attention of the Illinois Judicial Inquiry Board.
Members today filed a complaint with the state courts commission against eleventh circuit court Judges Scott Drazewski and Rebecca Foley.
The two were elected to the bench in Mclean County.
The complaint alleges the judges had an extramarital relationship from early December 2010 to mid-February 2011.
The board also claims Judge Drazewski presided over several pending cases that Judge Foley's husband was arguing. 
Once the attorney found out about his wife's relationship, he demanded Judge Drazewski recuse himself from those cases.
The board's complaint also alleges Judge Drazewski never told his chief judge the real reason for the recusals.
