A press release from the Lake County Tea Party about misdeeds at the Grayslake Grade School District.
(Round Lake, IL – October 31, 2011) The Lake County State’s Attorney has concluded that District 46 School Board Member Sue Facklam committed at least 2 felonies yet they will not prosecute. Here is the excerpt of the letter sent to Ms. Facklam.
Our Office has completed its investigation of the allegations contained in the complaint and concluded that you in fact violated Section 29-1 of the Illinois Election Code by giving $5 CuIver’s gift certificates to at least two individuals in order to influence them to register to vote during this most recent election cycle. This conduct constitutes a Class 4 felony for which you could be prosecuted.
Because our investigation did not uncover a broader pattern of illegal payments and in the exercise of our prosecutorial discretion, we have decided not to prosecute you at this time for this offense. However, because the election process relics upon the honesty and integrity of deputy registrars, and your recent conduct tends to subvert that process, we are copying Lake County Clerk Willard Helander with a copy of this letter . It is our recommendation to Ms. Helander that you be removed for cause as a deputy registrar pursuant to Section 4-6.2(b) of the Ilinois Election Code.
Because of Ms. Facklam’s blatant disregard for the law of Illinois, the Lake County Tea Party calls for the immediate removal of Ms. Facklam from the District 46 School Board and Special Education District Of Lake County (SEDOL).
Ms. Facklam should no longer be allowed to hold a position of responsibility as a role model to the children of this community.
