Edgar Co. Board Meeting: Watching Karl Farnham ignore citizens…

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On October 28, 2015

Edgar Co., IL. (ECWd) –
Video of the Edgar County Board Study Session is below.
This meeting was held on October 26, 2015 at the Edgar County Highway Department.
Enjoy watching Karl Farnham ignoring people during public comment – he does this when he doesn’t like the subject, unless it involves him getting health insurance benefits he is not authorized to get, then he will go to great lengths to try and figure out how to keep you and I paying for this illegal payment to himself.
What a way to live.
Collect insurance payments when you know you are not authorized to collect them, while knowing the State’s Attorney won’t do anything about it because he is standing shoulder-to-shoulder with you filling his own bank accounts with unauthorized insurance benefits. Will the prosecutor prosecute himself?
Refuse to make others pay what they owe to the county.
Assist in perpetuating a lie on a financial audit, while admitting the audit statement was false.

    These guys most run unopposed. Save for one individual, the rest look like they don’t give a damn about public comments. This could only happen if they feel like they’re doing the community a favor by filling a position on the board.

    Karl is a freaking ingrate. The republican voters of Edgar county elected him to three terms of sheriff and a nice pension. Karl throws a fit because Wheat doesn’t get the republican nomination so he worked to elect the democrat Crippes. Edgar county citizens who knew better paid dearly by having that jackass as sheriff. You’re a great guy Karl!

    Interesting comment by Rob Bogue about how Alan Zuber wouldn’t let a pedophile in his school when he was Crestwood principal. Alan Zuber DID let a pedophile in his school. He welcomed him several times. Zuber and convicted pedophile Mark Savoree are or were buddies. Zuber refused to believe it even after law enforcement told him. Only paperwork from the Bureau County, IL Circuit Clerk faxed to Zuber’s Crestwood office began to make him think Savoree might be a deviant.

    Watchdog watcher…. Maybe an HONEST person wouldn’t have a problem with the watch puppies as you call them. It’s the ones that can’t seem to do the right thing that have a problem with the Watchdogs………. sounds like you might be one of them.
