    Too bad Illinois State Police investigation unit isn’t as thorough as Indiana’s. I have no idea what the specifics of the individual charges are but when I see allegations of ghost employment, it sounds very familiar to allegations which ISP and Illinois AG turned a blind eye to.

    When the judicial branch is corrupt, as it is in Ilinois, there is very little hope for justice! Look at Shelby county and the attorneys and judges who have been connected to the state and have turned a blind eye to the corruption.

      Connected to the State? You mean like, the States Attorney? The guy recommended by that County’s Treasurer, ERICA FIRNHABER, supported by the ECWD, and the one with no prosecution experience, who charges his own County Board Members with Felonies for the terrible offense of simultaneously serving on a Cemetery Board and the County Board at the SAME TIME, GASP, yet has dropped charges in several cases including cases against alleged Pedophiles?

        Yet you probably advocate for the new candidate with absolutely no prosecution experience and very little courtroom experience at all? Crimes are crimes, no matter if they are current public officials or not. Mugshot Teresa Boehm is alleged, by the grand jury indictments, to have violated well-established state law. Have you asked why some cases get charges “dropped” – like, maybe, for the grand jury to review and bring the indictments?
