Below is the exhibit that Judge Thomas Meyer seemed uninterested in at Tuesday’s court hearing to consider whether a Special Prosecutor should be named to investigate whether McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren used taxpayer resources to advance his campaign interests.
Back on October 20, 2007, when then- McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Bill LeFew was trying to soften State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi up, the Northwest Herald reported that “Nygren said he would welcome an investigation, just to settle the allegations that had been leveled against Bianchi’s office.”
“There is no other way to resolve this now, because the finger-pointing and allegations aren’t helping anyone,” Nygren is quoted.
“The only way the truth will come out is if there is an independent investigation by an outside, credible source that has jurisdiction.”
