CLARK CO., IL. (ECWd) –
In a recent article we pointed out how Clark County Park District Commissioners directed their attorney, Lorna Geiler of Meyer- Capel out of Champaign, IL., to investigate and pursue all available legal actions against a Freedom of Information Act requester because they did not like her opinions of how the district conducts its business.
- Ron Stone made the initial motion (read about him here)
- Joe Ewing, Board Chairman, election cheater , and betrayer of public trust, agreed with Stone’s request – incidentally, he has missed meetings this year and should probably figure out where his priorities are in relation to further service on this board, after all, he has been quoted as stating those same words to other commissioner(s)
- Terry Stepp voted to go along with Stone
- Glenn Kuehnel, “fixer” of the budget, also agreed with Stone

Conspiracy caught on tape. Interesting how former Gov Rod Blagoiavich went
to prison for 14 years with no funds stolen. But hundreds of these municipal,
fire, park, school districts etc continue
to steal funds and believe they are above
the law. Our Federal Government prosecuted Blago but with IL being $220
Billion in deficit doesn’t file investigations
against those who have perpetrated these
outrageous financial crimes. The general
public has become extremely angry and more than likely we will begin to see Old
West Justice unfold if Federal authorities
continue to turn a blind eye to all these
illegal activities. Our family doesn’t venture into Chicago with 1,000 shootings
thus far. I and my wife have had it with IL
and in the process of moving out of state.

You should add that Step did not pay his camp site rental last year until heat was turned up on him

Is it just me or are their actions very fascist like?

I find it distressing that public bodies who are suppose to be “transparent” are upset when groups or individuals foia requests for information. And, I have personally experienced that if they don’t like that you ask questions (foia) the public body may find ways to intimidate those requesting information.
At the local level I have been very surprised that this kind of stuff goes on. I don’t know if the sense of “power” has gone to these people’s head or what. But, it’s not right — it’s about time that people who don’t agree with those in office — run for those seats in the next election.

Well even when the media does the reporting the entity continues to break
the law because in Illinois every government entity has some degree
of fraud. Until more Federal oversight
sends more of these thieves to prison
they will not stop. The only other action
one can take is to leave the state.

It’s not a vote but it is, an expendature the park doesn’t need. Piss away another 20,000 easily just because you can’t follow the law

Unfortunately – it’s the taxpayers money they’re spending to do this!

So why weren’t they arrested? Call the sheriff. This is outrageously illegal.

Done. Filed complaint 2 days ago. No questions from Sheriff’s office. They filed the complaint and video with the State’s attorney who has already chosen to disregard election law, perjury, and has conflicts of interests. What’s going to happen? Probably not a DAMN THING. I’ve heard it may be a possibility that the state’s attorney may become a party of the conspiracy to commit intimidation by inaction, but I will leave that up to lawyers to figure out.
