McHenry County Sheriff’s candidate Bill Prim smiles as he introduces his daughter and son. His daughter’s birthday was the day of the Lou Bianchi fundraiser.

McHenry County State’s Attorney Louis A. Bianchi Thursday formally endorsed Bill Prim for Sheriff in the Republican primary in March, saying that Prim’s qualifications are superb, that he will be a strong partner in strengthening law enforcement and also in extending a new era of reform to McHenry County government

“With his 27 years of exemplary law enforcement work, as testified to by numerous federal, state and local accolades, Bill is uniquely positioned to take over the reins of a difficult and multifaceted Office,” Bianchi said.

“From ‘boots-on-the-ground’ police work to supervising large and complex narcotics investigations, there is no aspect of police work he isn’t familiar with.

“Furthermore, I have been very impressed with the work he has done over the last year to reach out to every segment of our community, to build his stature among our citizens, and to inject optimism for the future of the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement in general.

“He has earned my wholehearted endorsement and I hope you will give him yours,” Bianchi told attendees at his annual Festa Italiana.

State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi Uses Packed Fund Raiser to Urge Support of Bill Prim for Sheriff — 41 Comments

  1. Yesterday evening at Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi’s fund raiser at the Boulder Ridge Country Club in Lake in the Hills, a Priest had a few kind words for Mr. Corruption. This Priest made a point during his speech stating that Mr. Corruption was one of the most ethical people he knows.

    If you need a Priest to come to your fund raiser to make this statement, it is obvious that this attempt is to camouflage the truth. Anyone using a Priest is the real evil snake out there.

  2. Fuk U, you are truly an idiot. Go sharpen your knives. Your hubby is endorsed by a porn star, and you’re bashing Bianchi about a priest.

  3. The wheels of Corruption at it best I say as Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi exposes himself as the ring leader that leads Corruption to our county. It is also now obvious that Bill Prim is a puppet of Corruption for the Taylor Street Boys as Mr. Corruption himself; Louis Bianchi blows his whistle leading his pack of Corrupted clowns to infect McHenry County.

  4. Aretheybutfukseriousnow, it is obvious that YOU are one of many that are being paid by Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi and the Taylor Street Boys.

    GOOD will prevail over evil as Andrew Zinke will STOP the infection of Corruption in the McHenry County Sheriffs Department.

  5. Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi is the real idiot here. He exposed himself when he formally endorsed Bill Prim like a used car salesman at his own fundraiser. How much lower can one get to endorse Corruption and embarrass himself in front of so many?

  6. Fuk U, talk to your doctor about increasing the dosage.

  7. Lou cost my MCC Trustee campaign $2,500 in legal fees with a frivolous ballot access complaint. MCC spent over $5,000 on lawyers for the same case. I used to like the guy.

  8. “Fukoku” I can’t wait for the day when they slap those handcuffs on you. Only then, will you have a taste of your own medicine….Be guaranteed myself and others will be there, everyday when you have to make an appearance, in court, before a judge. So help me God, you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Promise……Lou Bianchi is “INNOCENT” and you Fukoku are “GUILTY…..Nygren and Zinke are the real ring leaders of corruption and you know it…..I was made an offer to pay off a judge and Lou Bianchi had nothing to do with that….Bianchi is not even remotely related to corruption Kickbacks and bribes. I know who is and so do you Fukoku……

  9. I find it funny that Kim Z. (Fukoku) is bashing Bianchi for the priest thing. Andy went to that same Catholic priest and asked him to be his “Spiritual Advisor”. Obviously that didn’t work out so Andy became a Lutheran instead.

  10. I have been falsely accused of being several different people in this blog and I was finally able to put it all together why. Duncan, Loavass, Aretheybutfukseriousnow, and many others like them are here on orders by Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi. They are on his payroll to spread his evil corruption and spy on Andrew Zinke’s supporters.

    I very rarely hear them praising Bill Prim, all we hear is twisted attacks on Andrew Zinke’s friends, family members, and all others that are not influenced with their corrupted lies.

    You can try to sell your corruption, but we are not buying it mules.

  11. If it walks like a nut, its a nut. if it talks like a nut, its a nut……….

    FUKUKO=KIM ZINKE=NUT

    It’s not looking good for you either Andy Zinke the clown and your entire circus act.

    Oh my gosh, a clown and a nut. If they elect Andy Zinke, we are all in real trouble. But for now, I feel really bad for the Lutherans of Mchenry County. Just pray. And, we better start praying now for those Lutherans, so they can get a head start…

  12. Hey Duncan, how much did Mr. Corruption pay you to make that statement?

    Hee Haw

  13. Hey “Fukoku” Or is it Cuckoo? Lou Bianchi has never paid me for anything…….

    Hey “Fukoku” how much is Andy paying you to make these ridiculous accusations against Lous Bianchi?

  14. “Lou Bianchi has never paid me for anything”.

    Ya right mule, you make me sick how you could sell out your county for a few bucks.

    Hee Haw

  15. You have NO honor Mule. How much did Mr. Corruption pay you to watch over this blog all night?

  16. “Fukoku” ..Now you really sound childish… Go back to the Cuckoos nest……..There was no merit for the charges against Lou Bianchi…..

  17. “There was no merit for the charges against Lou Bianchi”

    As there were no charges against Andrew Zinke, but that does not stop you from singing the same old song.

    The only deference between us is that I am not on Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi’s payroll. I am here trying to STOP the infection of corruption from making its way into the McHenry County Sheriffs Department.

  18. “Fukoku” No one has paid me to watch over this blog all night. I comment because it is time for change in Mchenry County Government. Every person in our community is at risk as long as corruption continues. And, as long as the wrong people are in office Corruption in Mchenry County will never stop. That means saying good ridden’s to Andy Zinke. Some do not want to do anything to make change, until their own lives are turned upside down because of corruption…The time to make a difference is at election time. Vote responsibly and get rid of the people that do not have the best interest of the community in mind…..Bye Andy Zinke

    Lou Bianchi is “INNOCENT”………..

  19. I do agree with you in regards to corruption in McHenry County, and that is why Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi MUST be stopped in bring more of his puppets into this county.

    YOU and many others say that Andrew Zinke is corrupted, but YOU have no sound evidence that he is. All we hear is twisted attacks on Andrew Zinke’s friends and family members. And please don’t bring up again and again about the Rita Corporation, Andrew Zinke was cleared of all wrongdoing.

    As for Mr. Corruption being innocent, I will agree that entire fiasco of charges was far reached.

    However, I based my opinion on Mr. Corruption’s performance which is pathetic as our State’s Attorney. Just recently Mr. Corruption made a deal with Jack Pickup by reducing a Class 4 felony to misdemeanor harassment for sexual exploitation to a minor. This PIG, a Des Plaines former teacher is sexting messages to an eighth grade girl and Mr. Corruption lets him, like so many others in this county, walk free with a slap on the wrist.

    The fruits of corruption don’t fall far from the corrupted tree. Open your eye’s to the truth, Mr. Corruption supports Bill Prim, former police commander of the Des Plaines Police Department. Jack Pickup, a Des Plaines teacher that also worked for Senator Dan Duffy’s election campaign, which publicly endorses Bill Prim for McHenry County Sheriff. It’s not hard to follow the trail of the Taylor Street Boys if you open your eyes.

    Dispute these facts Duncan!

  20. Lou Bianchi was acquitted, he was not found to be innocent; but that is old news. I think we should be more concerned that Bianchi is inept.

    Zinke admitted that he disclosed the fact of the DEA’s investigation of Rita Corporation to Brian Goode. Brian Goode owns the Rita Corporation. The drugs were being shipped to the Rita Corporation. Zinke’s campaign was headquartered at the Rita Corporation. Goode gave Zinke $5,000 after he disclosed the DEA investigation to Goode. This isn’t exactly rocket science folks.

    Yet Lou Bianchi decided on his own to do nothing(rather than taking the matter to a grand jury) and that Zinke would not be prosecuted for his conduct. Bianchi has that discretion as State’s Attorney. We have the discretion, as voters, to replace Bianchi with someone who is more competent.

    As for Brian Goode’s sullied reputation, blame Zinke. If Zinke had allowed the investigation to take it’s course, the investigation would have shown whether Goode was innocent. As it is, we’ll never know the truth because Zinke, Nygren and Bianchi each acted in their own interest, for their own political reasons, and against the interests of the people of McHenry County.

    And now Bianchi announces he is supporting Bill Prim. This is the guy who did nothing about Des Plaines police officer John Bueno who violently attacked people that were in already in custody, including a guy who was handcuffed! Prim did nothing… Bianchi does nothing… Sounds like a real “partnership” alright.

    So does the endorsement of a do-nothing like Lou Bianchi even matter?

  21. Oh, and one more facet of this docu-drama:

    Sheriff Nygren decided that Zinke committed no wrongdoing by disclosing the DEA’s investigation of Rita Corporation to Brian Goode. Nygren’s decision is hardly surprising given the fact that Brian Goode was Nygren’s largest financial contributor at the time.

    And, as Nygren’s largest contributor, none of us should be surprised to learn that Brian Goode was appointed by Nygren to be on the Sheriff’s Merit Commission. I wonder what credential$ Goode had for the job?

    So Nygren’s decision that Zinke committed no wrongdoing is just too incestuous to have any credibility whatsoever.

    And seriously, how can we determine whether Ngren’s investigation of Zinke has any credibility when Nygren stubbornly refuses to share the details of his investigation with us? And why hide the facts of an investigation that supposedly exonerated Zinke from wrongdoing?

    Nygren and Zinke. Bianchi and Prim. Slim pickings for McHenry County Republicans.

  22. I wish we could have an intelligent discussion. We need to insure that we do not have any semblance of Nygren. Zinke is Nygren’s clone. The facade of the Rita investigation may make Nygren and Zinke’s followers happy but we all know e en the act of contacting Goode was totally against HONEST police work.

    Zinke ending the traffic unit is more about his his dislike for the Sergeant and their loyalty to previous Captain. Stopping truck enforcement in the western part of the county. The township roads and bridges and being destroyed by overweight (no legal) trucks. Zinke is in bed with Deans and the trucking lobby. The hell with motorist and taxpayers that pay for the roads

    Will Zinke plaster his name on all the Sheriff buses ,vans , boats buildings and other county owned equipment? Rolling billboards. The sheriff needs to learn that the deputies and employees are employees of The County not Him personally.

    Zinke must go! The McHenry Co Sheriff dept needs a serious enema to get rid of the crap created by Nygren and his clone Zinke

  23. ‘Fukoku” you are wrong I do have absolutely proof of corruption concerning Andy Zinke. “ABSOLUTE PROOF” And, I have “ABSOLUTE PROOF” of Keith Nygren’s participation in corruption. And, I have ABSOLUTE PROOF that Lou Bianchi is “INNOCENT” and he was railroaded by the regime…. There is no proof that Bill Prim has ever participated in corruption. He is a man that believes in personal accountability, even if it is one of his own officers. That I do know. Bill Prim is a man of integrity and he will do the right thing even if it means he does not win points from his colleagues..

    As far as Jack Pickup a DesPlaines teacher. You do not know the whole story and everyone knows there are plea bargains in almost every single case.. He does have a conviction. That story is just one more way for you to twist the truth and back up your false claims. There is no validity to your argument.

    Andy Zinke may have been cleared of all wrong doing in the RIta Corporation Fiasco but he is not innocent…He violated the ‘General Orders” of his own Sheriffs Department..

    Cases are fixed in Mchenry County and that is a fact. I personally have more than one experience with someone trying to fix or make an offer on a case that I personally had pending in the Mchenry County Court system. And, I have other first hand experiences with corruption….Gary Gauger was railroaded by egotistical Mchenry County Sheriffs officers trying to get a conviction and they all knew he was innocent. Every single one of those officers knew he was innocent. It is time for change in our community and change will “NEVER” happen if Andy Zinke is put into office. First of all he is a “Complete Bafoon” He has already failed political campaigning 101. He gave Call the finger, he made excuses for his wife dropping the F bomb at a parade and he can’t even put a sign on straight. He is not capable of running the Sheriffs office with integrity.

  24. It was a wonderful evening honoring a man that has earned the respect of everyone in attendance.

    It is an honor to be supporting such a man.

    All that were there will work to have Bill Prim elected as he too has proved himself worthy of support.

    Lou’s endorsement is worth its weight in gold.

    Bravo!

  25. I wish we could have an intelligent discussion. We need to insure that we do not have any semblance of Nygren. Zinke is Nygren’s clone.

  26. A refreshing idea is having a lawyer as Sheriff. Don’t count out Harrison just yet. As a John Marshal law professor instructing other lawyers in the LAWFUL administration of employee law do you think we would have nearly one million dollars invested in the Seipler case?

    This seems to be a battle of egos not qualifications. Just the education levels alone shouts we need seething better. I believe the Sheriff Dept budget is somewhere around 32 million. I would much rather see a person like Harrison as Sheriff than someone with a high school diploma and some police schools or someone trying to run on name recognition

  27. In a short sentence – Harrison has NO ADMINISTRATIVE EXPERIENCE.

  28. Harrison is old baggage.

    He is from the Pack and Nygren days.

    And, if you think Harrison does not have some old connections, you are badly mistaken.

    The road to healing in Mchenry County is with Bill Prim.

    Why don’t you ask Harrison how much he made on the property he sold next to the Mchenry County Court House.

    That information would be a real eye opener for the tax payers…..

    I have the paper work on that transaction..

    I was told Nygren and Pack helped Harrison sell that land…

    He made a bundle of money.

    He may not be part of the current regime, but he definitely has his connections………

  29. If I had to guess I would say Glenn, as in Gable, maybe, has something in common with Harrison . . . if it is the Pack Man, this would be Nygren’s answer to Zinke. You Think?

  30. Yes
    Harrison spent 12 years in the Mchenry County States Attorneys office under Gary Pack. I believe Glenn Gable is an assistant States Attorney…Harrison’s ties to Mchenry County go way back. They would definitely find a spot for Harrison if Prim lost the election……….If we want the “Healing” in Mchenry County to begin, Harrision and Zinke are not the answer…The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, unless a person has accepted personal responsibility. Zinke cant even accept personal responsibility for giving Cal the finger.That at least indicates that he does not know how or is unwilling to accept personal responsibility for anything…He has a lot of growing up to do. The next question becomes, do the people of Mchenry County want the Zinke Circus to continue, or do we want a functioning Sheriffs Department that is conducted and run with integrity and serves the people fairly and justly?

  31. After reading Glenn’s comment at 11:28 AM, I am thinking that there is a shift coming, Harrison over Zinke . . .

    I am sure we will hear from the Zinke camp . . . hide the sharp objects, this could really be a turn around, when they know Zinke can’t be trusted to act with some dignity.

  32. Wow. Shallow comments. If you can’t show the candidates strong points attack the other candidate with innuendo.

    If you recall Harrison lived in that house for years long before the jail expansion. Then with the huge jail next door he converted it to his office. How would you like jail full of criminals watching you house 24/7. Of course you people with nothing else to do but attack the opposing candidates with spin it as an insider deal.

    Records speak louder than innuendo. Why did Pack hire Harrison? Because he was the best labor attorney on the area and handled the labor issues quickly and at less cost than these million dollar nightmares we have experienced under the current three ring circus.

    It will be a long time until the election. Prim and Zinke have closets full of dry bones. Those skeletons are already starting to rattle.

  33. @get a clue,,,,,,, Harrison got his BA in Buisness Administration and Finance then went on for his Juris Doctor.

    Zinke has done a MARVELOUS job so far hasn’t he?????? One controversy after another. Maybe Goode can get him a job in the transportation department at Rita Corp.

  34. Unfortunately Duncan, I do know all about plea bargains, which is simply making a deal with the State’s Attorney’s Office, Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi, for a less serious charge. A corrupted State’s Attorney will use this plea bargain term to cover up a payoff or assist his corrupted buddies in the Taylor Street Boys gang.

    In this case, Jack Pickup charged with a Class 4 felony for sexual exploitation to a minor pleads guilty to a reduced charge to misdemeanor harassment. Every time a corrupted plea bargain deal is made, we hear the same BS justification, “we did get a conviction”. BFD! This PIG is still walking the streets and should be locked up under the full extent of the law.

    I do know the whole story, Jack Pickup was charged with the following:

    Child grooming: An action deliberately undertaken with the aim of befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child.

    Sexual exploitation of a child: Exposed his sex organs for sexual arousal or gratification.

    Electronic harassment (domestic violence) against a child: Sexting messages to an eighth grade girl.

    All charges were dismissed with the exception of misdemeanor harassment. Under special conditions approved by Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi, his two-year sentence was discharged and his fines, costs, and fees were $3,035.00 along with only 200 hours of public service.

    This is clearly a display of how corruption works as Jack Pickup should have been charged with a Class 4 felony and he would have been found guilty by the people. He should have been sentenced to a Class 4 felony with a term of imprisonment for 10 years and a fine of $100,000.

    How many more children will be victimized freely under Mr. Corruption himself, Louis Bianchi’s watch?

  35. Wow just Wow…

    Somehow I just want to hope that at some point debate can be had in this county without the garbage that is above.

    It has literally become impossible to have an intelligent debate in the comment section of this blog.

    Sadly I truly think that is what some here have actually targeted. They can’t simply can’t debate issues of public safety, command experience, and policies that would be good for our county. They only debate to be had here anymore is childish name calling and ugly personal innuendo.

    This was once a blog a would come to learn about local happenings and sadly it is becoming about slanted personal politics and childish name calling…actual policy discussion seems to be a thing of the past here.

  36. Sadly its true, as long as you make ugly personal innuendo against Andrew Zinke in this blog, you are debating the issues. However, if you use the same tactics against the Taylor Street Boys, it becomes impossible to have an intelligent debate.

  37. “Fukoku” and “buseriouslynow”……..Just so the tax payers know these two work for the Sheriffs department and are required to monitor the blogs and do damage control for the Zinke camp.. Go back to work guys…… You make no sense. You sound ridiculous and your arguments have no validity…..

  38. Duncan is just another mule on Mr. Corruption’s payroll.
