If you were unable to access McHenry County Blog during Wednesday mid-day, you can thank McHenry County Sheriff’s candidate Andy Zinke.
Undoubtedly, it was another way for him to express the same disdain he has for me that he showed at the Independence Day Parade right before reaching the Methodist Church while driving in a Sheriff’s Department vehicle with his private purchased sign saying, “Andrew Zinke, Undersheriff,” on its doors..
I don’t have time to write a detailed article, but he had a cat’s paw complain on his behalf that I was “stalking” him and linking to a web site that was obscene.
Two articles were specifically complained about.
Since he drew my web site host’s attention to them, I think it only fair I share their contents again.
Here’s the most recent one:
Skeleton in Zinke’s Closet
Zane Seipler’s blog about the McHenry County Sheriff’s race is a place I keep checking, even though he does not update it daily.
The latest article, entitled “Discrepancies,” is ostensibly about the incompleteness of the replies of Freedom of Information requests.
But the evidence of an incomplete reply is about a 1994 sergeant’s exam that Andy Zinke, now-Undersheriff and Sheriff Keith Nygren’s choice to succeed him.
Two letters that the Sheriff’s Department couldn’t find are reproduced on Seipler’s blog.
One is a request from Zinke for his sergeant’s exam to be regraded.
It seems he failed the test.
The other is the reply to that letter from the Sheriff’s Merit Commission.
V.W. Townsend, the Commission’s Secretary, writes that regrading it wouldn’t result in Zinke’s passing because he scored so low on
There are other stories about the Sheriff’s Office that those interested in the contest between former Des Plaines Police Commander Bill Prim and Zinke might find intriguing.
