McMahon clearly does not like his township board participation videotaped. You can see that in this April 21, 2010, article or this one.

Post-Grafton Township Meeting Altercation beween Trustee Gerry McMahon and David Moore Ends in Arrest of Moore — 8 Comments

  1. Looks like BOTH of the Moore’s have a propensity for physically striking others. Linda Moore slapped Pam Fender inside the offices of Grafton Township. It’s good Linda and David found each other. I’m sure it’s “Harmony on Harmony Road.”

  2. Everyone involved including the entire board, Linda Moore, and Pam Fender have made a mockery of Grafton Township. All involved should be ashamed and frankly, should resign their duties. It’s ridiculous.

  3. A show event for media attention. The board’s physical conditioning program is evident by the picture of the victim and it appears to be working almost as well as the one used by the other elected officials in McHenry County. When you eat at the trough long enough it begins to show

  4. “David Moore is one of the mildest men I have ever met, while McMahon is the most combative public’s official I have ever observed.”

    Weren’t you the same guy pontificating the endless praises of a certain tax-dodging, car-insurance avoiding buddy while Linda Moore was squawking about how the sky was falling?

    Just how many of your “mild” friends have had trouble with the law?

    Frankly, the violent and non-law-abiding friends you keep makes me wonder about some of the other people you heap praises upon.

    With criminal friends like these, do you know the difference between right and wrong, because that moral compass of yours needs a’fixin’.

  5. A quote from you – “David Moore is one of the mildest men I have ever met, while McMahon is the most combative public official I have ever observed.”

    Apparently your ‘good person radar’ is severely damaged and broken. Bet it speaks volumes for the rest of the stuff you weigh in on!

    Yes, David must be completely mild mannered, to put hands on and shove someone is completely ‘mild mannered’. (rolling of eyes)

    Took you a while to decide how to ‘spin’ this one, huh?

  6. Don’t understand how people can leave comments if they do not attend these meetings!

    I have been attending these Meetings…

    LM all I can is WOW! WOW! WOW!

    It is like dealing with a middle school kid!

    Mr. McMahon might be loud but he is NOT physical as for Mr. Moore he is quite but physical.

    As for any comments on Ms. Fender: Ms. Fender has (what I have witness) proven herself to be professional.
