It caught my interest because of McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Zane Seipler’s effort to get a Special Prosecutor named to investigate whether his 2010 GOP primary election opponent Sheriff Keith Nygren used taxpayer resources to advance his political aspirations.
Association Judge Thomas Meyer has scheduled a trial April 25th to take evidence of whether McHenry County State’s Attorney is “available” to investigate allegations made against Nygren.
Meyer is not interested in seeing evidence about any alleged crimes, saying that job is for the Special Prosecutor, if he names one.
Cook County Judge Toomin, on the other hand, is looking at the evidence.
In Cook County, State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez argues that her office has no problem investigating the allegation that former Mayor Richard Daley’s nephew R.J. Vanecko deserved to be indicted for having killed Koschman.
How different from McHenry County’s situation.
