New Northwest Herald Editor Jason Schaumburg agrees that the email sent to all McHenry County Board members was political in nature. (Read the email here.)
Here is the top part of his comments about the McHenry County Ethics Commission decision:
“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.]
