DuPage Co. (ECWd) –
The paper trail we have compiled pointing to direct violations of election law by Breuder and the previous COD Board of Trustees, which happens to include the current sitting member Joe Wazniak, appears to point to criminal violations.
Keeping it simple, step by step!
Sec. 9-25.1. Election interference.
(a) As used in this Section, “public funds” means any funds appropriated by the Illinois General Assembly or by any political subdivision of the State of Illinois.
(b) No public funds shall be used to urge any elector to vote for or against any candidate or proposition, or be appropriated for political or campaign purposes to any candidate or political organization. This Section shall not prohibit the use of public funds for dissemination of factual information relative to any proposition appearing on an election ballot, or for dissemination of information and arguments published and distributed under law in connection with a proposition to amend the Constitution of the State of Illinois.
(c) The first time any person violates any provision of this Section, that person shall be guilty of a Class B misdemeanor. Upon the second or any subsequent violation of any provision of this Section, the person violating any provision of this Section shall be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. (Source: P.A. 87-1052.)
I challenge everyone to read the power point presentation below from Michael Walters and simply ask your self this question.
Did COD use public funds to urge voters to vote for a proposition on the ballot, which was the 2010 referendum?
The claim at the time was this taxpayer funded push to pass a referendum was going to cost the taxpayers $149,650.00 when in reality it was more than double that, which we exposed in this article over 6 months ago. Couple that exposure with this article, this one, this one, and now the information below, it is very clear to everyone.
Taxpayers were abused – election laws were violated!
The most sacred process in our form of government is fair elections. When we allow a public body to go unchecked, not once, but now FOUR times, using our tax dollars in the election process, we have moved from a Republic to a dictatorial regime were laws are a selective option controlled by those in power.
Yes, this has happen FOUR times at COD!
The first two failed attempts are pointed to in the very first slide of the power point presentation (“After two failed attempts at passing a referendum using other firms”). That confirms two previous attempts and this power point represents the third, and I am sure the voters of District 502 are all to familiar with all the flyers used in the most recent April election, which represented the 4th time COD has used public funds related to attempts at influencing an election.
When will the Federal Government or the States Attorney hold these people accountable?
