If you are not following the story about Keith Nygren from David Bachmann’s (the 2008 Democratic Party’s 2008 candidate for McHenry County Coroner) point of view, you might find it of interest.
With the decision on naming a Special Prosecutor for Sheriff Nygren due Monday, the allegations being laid out by Bachmann, which seem mainly based on a 2010 election night conversation with Deputy Scott Milliman, are far more serious than what Associate Judge Thomas Meyer is considering.
Bachmann repeats what he was told of the meeting of Nygren and Milliman at Vaughan’s Restaurant at the Woodstock corner of Route 47 and old Route 14.
He then tells of the meeting afterward with FBI agents at the K-Mart parking lot and reprises the probably concurrent encounter of Nygren with then-Green Party Sheriff’s candidate Gus Philpott in the Jewel parking lot.
On his way home, Nygren GOP primary opponent Zane Seipler sees Milliman’s car in the parking lot and pulls in to talk to him.
You really need to read the original, but let me excerpt this paragraph:
“According to Milliman, a very loud argument then ensued between himself and the agents! This was when Milliman claims things between he and the FBI began going south very quickly. Seemingly, a ‘trust’ fell apart right there in an FBI vehicle.”
Have to include this subsequent paragraph, too. It brought a “Wow!” to my brain when I read it:
“Upon reflection on former deputy Milliman’s statement that when Nygren arrived at the Vaughn’s Restaurant appearing very disheveled, sweaty and extremely nervous, it is my belief that it is highly possible that an FBI agent tipped off Nygren.”
More to come on Monday, Bachmann writes.
