CARY, IL. (ECWd) -
Algonquin Township Trustee Rachael Lawrence signed a sworn "Affidavit Of Rachael Lawrence", on oath and under penalty of perjury, affixed her signature Subscribed and Sworn to before Notary Public Mary Ann Selvey on the 28th day of December, 2018, that her statements in the affidavit were true and correct.
Lawrence's taxpayer-funded attorney filed the affidavit in the Circuit Court of McHenry County as part of their response to our Motion to Quash a second subpoena for Dropbox data.
Traditionally, we never reveal sources under any circumstances, however, we must defend ourselves thru the Court from a false affidavit filed by this source. Her affidavit, and our response with proof of the alleged lie, are public court records for the world to read.
Lawrence' statement: "I have been in contact with the Edgar County Watchdogs since about April of 2018."
We believe that statement to be a lie, on oath, under penalty of perjury, and while affixing her signature before the Notary Public.
Rachael Lawrence has in fact been in contact with the Edgar County Watchdogs since at least November 28, 2017 (view it here) - about five months prior than when her statement, sworn to under oath and penalty of perjury, said she had been in contact with us.
We provided proof in our Reply.
Here is where we point out that if something is not actually true, but is merely upon information and belief, then that must be stated as such on the face of the Affidavit. It was not in this case.
This is what some might call an "anomaly" and post all over social media what they would do when spotting an "anomaly such as this."
WWRD? ("What Would Rachael Do?")
When talking about another person's "anomaly" Lawrence stated: "Now, what would any rational person do when they notice this "anomaly"? Well, I can tell you what I did. I first sent an e-mail, along with documentation, to the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office." Then she writes that she went to file a complaint about the anomaly with the McHenry County Sheriff's Department and with the Cary Police Department. She indicated that she would also go to the AG's Office and to the ARDC with her complaint.
Did she stop there? No.
She wrote an "Open letter to Attorney General Kwame Raoul" that was published in the Northwest Herald. Included in this "letter" was this: "In one instance, an elected official and the taxpayer-funded attorney representing him filed a sworn notarized affidavit in a court case that appears to directly contradict sworn testimony of that same official in a court hearing for another case."
You reap what you sow...we urge any resident voter of Algonquin Township to take the matter of this "anomaly" and treat it how she treated the "anomaly" she found. We urge you to file a complaint with the McHenry County State's Attorney, the Sheriff's Department, and the Cary Police Department. We also urge you to write your own "Open Letter to Attorney General Kwame Raoul" explaining how the previous letter was written by the same person who appears to have lied under oath on her own affidavit.
