You just can’t make this stuff up.
So here’s her post from the Huntley Neighbors’ blog.
She was responding to former board President Shawn Green.

Shawn, be fair. He didn’t refuse to speak to you face to face; he is reluctant to attend the meeting with a room filled with angry people. There are a lot of crazy people in the world. A local person told a friend of mine we should all throw molotov cocktails at federal buildings and “take back our government.” Those are not your views and I do not believe your party advocates those views; however it does attract people with those views.
Pam Fender, Huntley village trustee, whose day job as Grafton Township Administrator has been put in jeopardy by the separation of powers court case awaiting decision, added this to the thread:

Remember Shawn has a great advantage- he carries a gun.
Fender neglects to mention that Green is able to carry a gun since he is employed by the Schaumburg police.
Both Skaja and Fender are anti-Tea Party, favoring big government and all of the liberal spending that goes with it. They both are certifiable tax increase advocates.
There is desperation in the political air when Skaja and Fender as elected officials in Huntley are writing about throwing “Molotov cocktails” and carrying a gun to scare off people from attending a Huntley Tea Party meeting.
Skaja and Fender fear conservatives organizing politically as the unions in Illinois already are.
What has Skaja’s and Fender’s bloomers in a knot?
It started with this message post:
Huntley Tea Party – Town Hall Meeting
Huntley Town Hall Meeting
Monday August 23, 2010 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Cosman Cultural Center, Huntley, Illinois (map) Be part of the next big Tea Party Event. Your opportunity to meet state and local legislators and candidates. Ask questions. Find out their views on important issues. Be a better informed voter. Be part of this important exchange of ideas.
Maybe Skaja can tell us when the last Molotov cocktail was thrown at a political event in Illinois “to meet state and local legislators and candidates.”
I would say there’s about zero chance elected official Skaja filed a report with the F.B.I. or Huntley police about someone trying to incite someone else to throw Molotov cocktails at Federal buildings. Such a threat would be a serious crime, maybe even a felony. It might even be a crime not report such a felony.
Of course Skaja, as a school board member, would report a felony if she learned of one, right?
