LISLE, IL. (ECWd) -
Only in Illinois can you be a 3-time DUI offender - sentenced to 4 months in jail, and then get work release and be permitted to sit on the Lisle Electoral Board to determine if someone can keep their name on the ballot. The fact he is sitting on the Lisle Electoral Board can be found buried deep in this Daily Herald Article.
This is why people need to be able to sue the Courts for allowing this to happen. Misdemeanor on 3rd time DUI ? What will they tell the person he may kill while driving drunk the next time? Oh, sorry, he was such a good guy and needed to keep his job so we went light on him the last three times he was caught driving drunk?
Add to that, he kept his elected position of Village of Lisle Clerk, which left him able to sit on the Electoral Board to determine if other people were qualified to remain on the ballot.
Only in Illinois.
