Video: Edgar County Watchdogs recap of 2017 –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On December 27, 2017


This is a quick review of only part of what we wrote about in 2017, there is not enough time to talk about everything, and a good bit of it is still being uncovered and dealt with.

We would like to specifically thank Diane Benjamin (, Donna Ayres in Cahokia, IL., the good folks with the Morgan County and Franklin County (“Pointman”) Watchdogs, Lisa Thomas,, WAND, WCIA, and the many other local news organizations who have stepped up to the plate in reporting on local government activities.

A 30 minute video recap of some of our activities in 2017:

    Attention All: We as tax payers could never repay John and Kirk for all the hard work they provide digging into corruption of local and state government. These men never ask for contributions to continue their work being our Watch Dogs over our local and state government. They are single handling and exposing while the states attorney is looking the other way. Without the Watch Dogs it would be business as usual. Waste of taxed dollars! Is that what you want ? Heavy lifting has a price. Please contribute to the cause.

    The current Governor of Illinois has no future. He states he powerless against Madigan.

    Let’s elect a Watch Dog , Jeanne Ives for Governor , a true conservative looking out for all Illinois residents regardless of political preference.

    The only way I’ll be willing to watch this is if someone can confirm that at some point in this video the Cumberland County Pizza Hut incident made the best of 2017 List.

    Who DID pay for the desert pizza after all?

    It left me with more questions than answers.

    You guys are doing an amazing job, keep up the great work, I sure wish someone would look into my sons case which was 8-15-2015 and all the corruption being done he has been threatened by a correction officer shon johnson who has beaten one and settled now my son is being threatened and fear for his life, his name is Jerry Pintelon BD 04-02-1990 If you go on the case number is 2015CF108 it’s also been in the times republic as of recent . If you can look it over I’m sure you will see alot of discrepancies especially with them saying they didnt know how to do a GSR test and by the way his was negative. 2nd trial there was alot of different stories and lies where they had to pull transcripts and still didnt hold them in contempt. Thank you for your time God Bless you both…. Jim Devine is very corrupt and its terrible
