Someone hacked the Algonquin Township phone system this morning.
When one called 847-639-2700 and selected option zero, one heard something like this:
The office of Algonauin Township is closed
For patronage and employment, press 1
For information or to learn more about wasting money, press 2.
For legal defense fund, press 3.
For Gasbag press 5.
The final option, of course, gives one a lead on who violated the law.
At noon, the substitute message had been removed.
Reached for comment, Algonquin Township Road Commissioner Andrew Gasser said,
“Whoever did this needs to be fired.
“If it’s a contractor, they contract needs to be terminated.
“This is childish and pettiness that the voters elected me to get rid of.”
