Iroquois Co. (ECWd) -
In another fine example of how bad things are at the Attorney General's Public Access office. Twenty months after a request for review was submitted to them, they finally confirm a violation occurred, however, they claim they can't direct the records be turned over because the FIPHD was dissolved.
Hello? Just because they are dissolved does not mean the records don't exist. Is it asking to much for someone to take some initiative to ask where the records are at? Surprise, the records are in the possession of Iroquois County.
Had those records been properly provided there would have been additional evidence of the criminal expenditure of federal flood grant money.
Below is the AG response provided to Will Brumleve, an award winning reporter for the Paxton Record who we had been working with on the flood grant fraud by Doug Corbett. When the AG fails to do their job in a timely manner, the public cannot be informed, and the bad actors get away with misapplying millions of dollars.
