Mike Buehler Calls for Carlos Acosta’s Resignation, Along with His Mentor, Jack Franks’

From the Republican candidate for McHenry County Board Chairman, Mike Buehler:

County Chair Candidate Buehler calls for Franks and Acosta resignations over handling of AJ Freund tragedy 

Mike Buehler

“(Board Member) Carlos Acosta needs to resign – now!” said Mike Buehler, Candidate for McHenry County Board Chairman.

“And (County Board Chairman) Jack Franks needs to follow suit and resign as well.” 

Acosta was arrested Thursday, along with his former supervisor at the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, Andrew Polovin.

The charges against the pair include two counts of felony endangering the life of a child and one felony charge of reckless conduct each.

The charges are related to the widely perceived mishandling of the DCFS case that should have protected 5-year-old AJ Freund who was forced to take a cold shower as a punishment, beaten on the head until killed and then had his body dumped by his parents on April 15, 2019. 

Acosta and Polovin were initially placed on desk duty after their mishandling of the case came to light. In December, they were both fired from DCFS. 

Many feel that widespread calls for Acosta’s resignation were stymied by Franks, Acosta’s political ally. 

“Just recently, Franks called Acosta a model board member,” said Buehler. “Franks should have asked Acosta to resign a long time ago.

But the chairman put politics ahead of justice or decency. With Franks, politics always come first.” 

Buehler said that Franks’ approach to cases of improper behavior depend on where those involved stand politically.

If it’s a case related to a Franks ally, the chairman simply seeks to weather the storm.

Franks is currently under investigation for sexual assault, sexual harassment and stalking a young lady while serving in Springfield as the representative of the 63rd District.

Applying the same standards as Franks, his ally, Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan ordered an investigation into the accusations which reported that the accusations were “credible.”

But instead of following through on the matter, Madigan’s office buried the report and Madigan merely required Franks to have a State Police escort any time he was on State Capital property. 

“This is the political two-step we see in Illinois politics,” said Buehler.

“Politicians do a little dance to protect each other when they get in trouble rather than putting justice and the public interests first.

“Enough already. It’s time for these people to start doing he right thing. And the right thing for Chairman Franks is to resign, not to mention that Acosta has got to go.” 

Just yesterday, at a Special County Board Meeting, Board Member Chuck Wheeler called for Franks’ resignation due to the allegations against the chairman.  

“It’s unacceptable that we allow this type of individual to roam freely in our midst,” said Wheeler.

“We have employees who expect security and safety in their work environment.”

  1. I call for Acosta’s resignation too.

    And that of his chinaman, The Jackal called Franks!

  2. “Just recently, Franks called Acosta a model board member,” said Buehler.

    “Franks should have asked Acosta to resign a long time ago.

    No Shi*

  3. I did not know that Mike Buehler was the McHenry County Board Chairman to make such demands.

  4. As I drive to and from, I have noticed no Frank’s for chairman signs anywhere not even at some of his biggest backers.

    Hmmm…

  5. Perhaps the election of Mike Buehler would lead to a more collaborative county board Eric C.

    Not my way is the highway rule we have now?

  6. A tragedy that someone is arrested for a felony for not stopping the heinous acts of someone out side their control.

    Whats next for the Liberals?

    Are they going to arrest Cops who left an abusive father that ended up killing his children and wife? Because that happens even more often.

    So much for the rule of Law.

  7. The silence of the chair, JF, during this catastrophe, is astonishing.

    And a board member displaying
    Bat man crap at public meetings is so far out of bounds it is astounding it was allowed to continue.

    Who let it continue Eric C?

  8. Wheeler the Deeler, just a little squealer.

    Why didn’t Wheeler say any of this long ago?

  9. Does anyone have any idea what “Ron” is talking about?

    Is he actually DEFENDING Acosta’s incompetence and disgraceful conduct?

  10. Eric C: Anyone with a soul and a sense of right and wrong would “make such a demand.”

    Wake up.

  11. Franks and Acosta are an embarrassment to the people of McHenry County.

    Mike Buehler, will bring much needed change and reform.

    Way to go, Mike Buehler!

  12. This guy and his Batman crap!!!

    Model board member molded by Jack Franks.

    I guess Jack must be Robyn in this relationship.

  13. Jack’s been playing games for a long time.

    How is it proper to pay money from a campaign account to a criminal defense attorney?

    Madigan of all people banned jack from the capital unless the capital police were escorting him.

    Why is he allowed to walk freely into the county building without an escort.

    Jack defended Acosta, supported his continuance on the county board even after Acosta’s AJ failures were known.

    Yet no outrage from the democrats.

  14. Acosta is dead meat.

    Let the buzzards eat his carrion.

    Yet Jackoo tries to clean up Carlos.

    They both need to be booted!

    I condemn the County Board for not doing a damn thing about Jackoo or his little pet Carlos A.

    Where are the censures?

    Tracy K.’s dogged determination to get AJ justice will not be spoilt by Kenneally!

  15. Jack Franks’ GOODFELLAS:

    “And now, Carlos, I have to turn my back on you. There is no other way.”

  16. Eric C., Franks, Acosta, and the rest of the clowns in that circus work for US. We all have a right to demand someone like Carlos Acosta step down.

    We don’t have the right to force him out however.

    Jack Franks, in my opinion (an opinion shared widely) has a duty to demand Acosta step down.

    However, as has been pointed out here and evidenced in Illinois politics since about the time of the birth of Christ, it just ain’t gonna happen.

    It’s a moral thing and folks like Franks don’t seem to have them.

    Just the other day somebody said that Jack Franks has the morals of an alley cat.

    I argued that he didn’t!

  17. @the terminator

    What makes you think he hasn’t?

    You should be asking why Jack had not asked before now.

    I can answer that for you when asked about it at the 4th of July parade 2019, while standing in front of 94 Dole Ave Jack stated “ this is a DCFS issue and not my problem” followed with a dismissive waive as he walked on without giving it another thought until NOW.

  18. Jack

    All of the bought and paid for NWH adds will never cover this up.

  19. There should have been a press conference by the county board GOPs the day after DCFS fired Acosta demanding his resignation, setting a censure vote and exposing the Jackal’s connection to Acosta.

    But there wasn’t any.

    Please explain that!

  20. Eric C, you belong in a mental hospital if you think you must be county board chairman in order to make demands that someone resign.

    Perhaps you should observe your friends, the communists destroying our cities.

    They make demands of everyone though they hold no office (or job or moral standing for that matter).

  21. Chase Gioberti, Eric C, doesn’t even live in McHenry County.

    He’s just a trouble maker!

  22. Franks is a pathetic!

    LISTEN UP AND WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    JOKER JACK, RUNS A THREE RING CIRCUS IN McCHENRY COUNTY.

    Let’s not forget Jack Frank’s protege “FAKE NURSE” Lauren Underwood snubbed AJ Freund at a parade, AFTER HIS MURDER MADE WORLDWIDE NEWS!

    JACK FRANKS OTHER PROTEGE, CARLOS ACOSTA’S INTENTIONAL AND REPREHENSIBLE NEGLECT OF OF AJ FREUND ENABLED AND EMPOWERED HIS PARENTS TO MURDER HIM.

    Continued reform in McHenry County means that Jack Franks and his entourage must hit the road!

    LET’S CAST OUR VOTE FOR REFORM AND ELECT MIKE BUEHLER!

  23. DALA is right on!

    Why is the Co. Bd paralyzed?

    Are they under Jackal’s spell?

  24. CITY OF CL. COULD HAVE OFFERED A HELPING HAND TO 94 DOLE AVENUE, THEY BEG FOR DONATIONS FOR THE DOLE AND RAUE CENTER.

    DID CITY OF CL.

    OFFER A MUSTARD SEED ?

    THEY WERE INSIDE THAT HOUSE TOO.

    HEY, MERCY HOSPITAL WAS SENT TO HELP LITTLE ANDY.

    CRYSTAL LAKE COUNCIL SAID NO.

  25. Dacy, the County Board is paralyzed because Jack Franks has a history of being a bully!

    More like a confirmed nut head!

    All he has to do, is throw a temper tantrum and some of the members of the the Local 150 spring into action.

    In fact, some of the Local 150 members are his enforcers!

  26. Why is this dudes foot on my tax paid … office furniture? !

  27. Let’s end the days of “JOKER JACK’S” tactics of “INTIMIDATION and BULLYING” on election day!

    Bueheler, is the right candidate for CHAIRMAN OF THE McCHENRY COUNTY BOARD!

  28. Dacy–>

    Jack Franks the “Enforcer” and his “INTIMIDATORS” known as the “LOCAL 150 BOYS” must go!

    Our County Board is paralyzed because of Jack Franks and fear of retaliation!

    Franks, rules and controls by fear!

    Many believe, that Madigan tactics are seeping into McHenry County Government.

    That is an accurate and undeniable assessment of Madigan and his buddy Jack Franks!

    The only way to stop this disastrous train wreck is to elect Mike Buehler!

    Now, it’s up to the people of McHenry County to make it happen!

    WE CAN DO THIS TOGETHER!

  29. Interesting point to be made about Franks.

    Franks, rules and controls by fear!

    Sex offenders and abusers also rule and control by fear!

    HMMMMMM!

  30. Dala, what you are saying is that the County Bd is composed of jellyfish.

  31. Terminator, if thats what you really believe, then you don’t have all the facts or you would prefer to ignore them.

    It’s easy to judge until you live it.

    By the way, Jack Franks is on the same list as an Institutionalized killer!

    That fact should compel every single person in McHenry County to vote for Mike Buehler.

  32. Chase Gioberti, in response to your observation in regards to my mental health, I supported Walkup when he was running for Chairman, while so many Republicans supported Franks.

    Can you say the same?

  33. DALA, DALA, DALA, you haven’t learned from our last encumberment when I beat you down like a 58-year-old PIG.

    I just don’t understand why you are flapping your jaws when you are NOT even registered to vote, because you are afraid of coming out of your Mother’s townhome basement.

    I am for one, and I am sure your last target Eddie, would appreciate if you took your medication and claim down and be nice.

    Why don’t you go back and sell rooster ornaments in front of your Mother’s townhome, that was good therapy that seemed to relax you.

  34. Eric, I know who you are.

    You haven’t beaten me down, but apparently you have a history of beating women.

    A loser drug addict who keeps asking for money from people to feed your drug habit.

    Clearly, the only one on medication is you!

    So Charming.

    Your days as a scammer are over!

    By the way, Rooster ornaments are a figment of your imagination.

    Get a grip!

  35. Eric, only pigs beat and stalk women!

    You are a PIG that no one wants.

    In fact, you are all washed up!

  36. Chase Gioberti, is absolutely right about ERIC.

    Thank you Chase for pointing that out about Eric.

    Eric doesn’t even live in McHenry County.

    He is only here to get even with people and gather information for his smear campaigns.

    He’s truly a stalker who has no boundaries.

    Eric, has been identified on video surveillance.

    The poor sap thinks he’s invincible!

    Stop stalking and get a life!

    Going from place to place to create problems and never accepting responsibility for who he is and what he has done to others.

    He is truly a sadistic abuser!

    Eric, is to busy pointing the finger at everyone but himself.

    Eric is a “NARCISSISTIC ABUSER”

    They said the same about Joann Cunningham. Two pees in a pod

    PATHETIC!

  37. DALA 2:43 am?

    I am sorry that I caused you a sleepless night, I didn’t except you stalking the Blog that late at night.

  38. Pay attention, Chase Gioberti has provided really good advice for you.

    Wakeup and Listen up!

  39. Everyone, knows you are a “FAKER AND A TAKER”

    NO ONE WILL BE FUNDING YOU ANYMORE!

    You might have to go cold turnkey on those drugs!

  40. You really should have fixed the coffee table you broke.

    SHAME ON YOU!

    Going around throwing temper tantrums and breaking furniture!

  41. You must have been on a drug binge when you broke all the furniture in your Mothers house.

    When they get ahold of you, there will be no more drugs.

  42. Let’s see, no girlfriend, your ex wives and kids hate you, everyone you come into contact with despises you.

    Because of your scams, McHenry County States Attorneys, were giving you $100.00 at a pop!

    Boy, you have a lot of guts!

    BIGGEST FAKER AND TAKER IN McHENRY COUNTY HISTORY!

  43. Never will happen because the U.S. Supreme Court forbids such a scheme.

  44. Kristy Cadie, Eric C’s comments were deleted but I do have “SCREEN SHOTS” of them. You are not seeing the whole conversation. My comments are in response to Eric C’s comments.

  45. Kristy? She’s still projecting. It’s very serious and you should walk away if you value your sanity.

  46. Cindy, has multiple personalities. Apparently, one of them is telling her to continue her stupidity!

    She claims to be a College graduate. Don’t pay attention to her, she lies a lot!
