Gaffney Campaign Manager Found to be Posting Comment on McHenry County Blog, Volunteering for McSweeney Campaign on State Time
Who would have thought that typing in a comment on McHenry County Blog would end up in a suspension?
Well, it was a bit more than that.
State Rep. Kent Gaffney’s campaign manager Nick McNeeley also volunteered for opponent David McSweeney’s campaign while on the state payroll.
That’s what a letter after the report from House Minority Leader Tom Cross, who initiated the probe, to Legislative Inspector General (and former State Rep.) Tom Homer says, as you can see below:
Five days suspension (April 2-6) and six months’ probation, plus conversion of all sick time from September 1 through November 15, 21011, into vacation time. And reassignment from his position in Research and Appropriations staff “to another position.”
Read the report for yourself below:
One might note that today is almost two months after the election.
