McHenry County continues to stonewall on what Special Prosecutor Skip Tonigan is being paid.
Having been denied the bills that Tonigan submitted to the McHenry County Board for his investigation of McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi, I filed another Freedom of Information request asking,
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request all documents that list the hourly rates of Special Prosecutor Henry Tonigan and and anyone he has working for him, including consultants.
The reply has arrived. You can see it below:
