Madison County Treasurer Appears To Have Destroyed Public Record To Avoid Producing It –

Madison Co., Ill. (ECWd) –

The Madison County Treasurer’s office was presented with a public records request asking for the name(s) of all people who were blocked from the Madison County Treasurer’s Facebook page.

Here is his response:

After receipt of your FOIA request, and during a search for responsive records, it was found that only one person was blocked from the Madison County Treasurer’s Facebook page. Upon noticing this, our office immediately unblocked that person. Prior to this discovery and prior to the action taken, no responsive record was created. After the action was taken, no record responsive to your request could be generated. Therefore, there are no responsive records pertaining to your request.

The claim that “prior to” discovering a person blocked “no responsive record was created” is false. The public record was created the instant the person was initially blocked. The “discovery” of someone on the blocked list WAS the responsive record and should have been produced.

By not saving the record showing the name of the person who was blocked, the Treasurer permitted, either intentionally or unintentionally, the destruction of the responsive record – and then failed to provide the name of the blocked person to the FOIA requester (whom was previously blocked).

    The Madison County Treasurer destroying records comes no surprise to anyone in Madison. Slusser has ruined the lives of several individuals and their families that were county employees. Over the past 2 yeas Slusser has his waking hours plotting to ruin the reputation of Kurt Prenzler who is the County Board Chairman. Prenzler is a honest, decent man that Slusser slandered and libeled., with the assistance of Mike Bacock, Tom McCrea, and other former County Board. Members. A dozen Madison County residents have sufficient information to seek legal action through the courts. Tom Haine, the States Attorney has provided thousands of dollars to Slusser’s campaign then attempted to mete out punishment
    for Prenzler orver a cooked up ethics issue.. Count Tom Haine in with all the rest of the Madison Country “dirty seven.:” Gentlemen, after election your dirty tricks will laid for everyone
    to witness.

      Why wait until after the election? The people should know the truth before they and their deceased family members begin the arduous journey of leaving their local cemetery graves to travel to the polls.
