Andrew Gasser disclosed on his blog today that attorney Rebecca Miller Lee, daughter of Bob Miller, had an account on the Verizon Wireless bill that was addressed to the Algonquin Township Highway Department. This was one of those rumors that had been floating around for over a year but it was never proven until Gasser defeated Miller in a bitter election and was able to uncover the billing records. This is just the latest salvo between Gasser and the Miller machine.
Records produced by Gasser go back to October of 2016.
Images and PDFs clearly show the bills going to: “ALGONQUIN TOWNSHIP ROAD DISTRI” and the name “Rebecca Lee” appears on page four of all the documents.
This brings up several questions that need to be answered:
What public purpose was served with having Rebecca Lee on the Algonquin Township Highway Department bill?
Did Rebecca Lee utilize this phone for any legal work she accomplished as a partner at Wand, Lee, and Wombacher LLC?
How long did Bob Miller have Rebecca Lee on the Algonquin Township Highway Department Verizon Wireless plan?
How long was Rebecca Lee an employee of the Algonquin Township Highway Department?
Gasser also took swipes at the Northwest Herald for what he called “yellow journalism”. To the casual observer the Northwest Herald has been critical of Gasser and Hanlon in their stories and on their editorial pages. Gasser further complained the Northwest Herald is not covering the highway department’s across the board five percent tax cut.
When I asked Gasser for a comment on the story he stated, “The Northwest Herald is failing McHenry County. They are biased and yellow.”
One has to wonder how long the Northwest Herald will continue as its circulation continues to plummet.
