McHenry County is seeking applicants for various commissions, including the McHenry County Ethics Commission.
You remember its performance, right?
When Undersheriff Andy Zinke used his office email account to send a blatantly political message to County Board members, the so-called “Ethics” Commission found no wrong-doing.
My complaint was not about Zinke’s salute in the Crystal Lake Independence Day Parade.
It was about his email about it.
The Northwest Herald Editor agreed that the email was political in nature:
“How can the McHenry County Ethics Commission read this portion of an email sent from a county email address and not see anything political?
“‘Since announcing my candidacy, I have been accused by local bloggers of working with a drug cartel, corruption, and now, publicly driving down the Crystal Lake Parade giving everyone ‘the finger.’ The personal attacks by my opponent and his supporters on my family, my friends, my wife, my children, my in-laws, co-workers, and county board members is despicable and have no place in a legitimate race.‘” [Emphasis added.]
