Former McHenry County Deputy Sheriff Zane Seipler continues to deliver interesting nuggets at his web site called McHenry County Sheriff’s Race 2014.
The most recent post has an Animal Farm echo.
Although not naming the Corrections Office in question, Seipler tells about how the person learned of a raid on a tavern conducting illegal gambling and called to warn the establishment. He uses a photo of a video poker (slot) machined to illustrate the illegal activity.
Somehow the tip was discovered by administrators and the person lost his or her job.
Andy Zinke Said to Have Spilled Beans to Local DEA Suspect, a Big Contributor to Zinke and Sheriff Keith Nygren
Koziol asked for a Special Prosecutor, but was turned down.
McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianhci looked at the situation and concluded that what Zinke did may have been wrong, but he did not break any criminal laws.
Against that background Seipler pints out the obvious difference in treatment of the “2010 Andrew Zinke tip…off the owner of Rita Corporation regarding a DEA investigation into the delivery of 30 tons of narcotics” and the firing of the Corrections Officer.
With tongue fully in check, Seipler asks, “Guess what happened to Zinke?”
Next comes my infamous photo of Zinke’s gesture at Crystal Lake’s Independence Day Parade and this:
“The Sheriff endorsed him as his replacement for the 2014 elections.”
Seipler is a candidate for one of two Republican nominations for the McHenry County Board in District 5. Incumbents are Republican John Jung, supporting Zinke for Sheriff over Bill Prim, and Democrat Paula Yensen.
