Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons sued under Freedom of Information Act –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On September 2, 2020

Madison Co., IL. (ECWd) –

A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was filed against Madison County State’s Attorney yesterday.

The suit alleges that the Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons did not respond to a FOIA Request submitted on July 17, 2020, and later amended on July 18, 2020.

According to the below press release, in his FOIA requests, Dorman sought records related to alleged “political fundraising on county time in the office of State’s Attorney going back to 2006, as well as his involvement in the task force.”

The FOI Act requires a response within 5 business days, and this suit alleges the State’s Attorney never responded to the request for public records.

    Watch Dogs, glad you covered this lawsuit by Mr. Dorman. Appears to be a big hit job on Dorman involving officials of both parties. Hope you continue to report on this political escapade. Interesting that the States Attorney, who won’t abide by the law, is now a candidate to be a Circuit Court Judge in Madison County. He should be reported to the ARDC. This guy needs to remove himself from his race for circuit judge.

    The uniparty swamp runs deep. We do not have 2 parties, at least not in many parts of Illinois.

    Illinois is a mini version of Congress. The people have very little if any representation. Term limits won’t solve every problem, but it would help with curbing career politicians.

    This should be reported to the Office of Special Counsel since his top Law Enforcement position as a State Prosecutor with Authority over an entire State Office that receives funds from federally funded programs. This puts him squarely under the supervision for violations of the Hatch Act.

    There will be an all out campaign to expose the facts about individuals running for public office whom either have lied or failed to enforce the law. Many of us are tired of unabated corruption that a high school student could uncover.. The liars and the lawless do not need to be elected to office in November.. Madison County already has corruption over flowing.
