This past weekend I commented on the “anything goes” ethics’ enforcement in McHenry County.
But, the contents of an article in the Rock River Times makes the approved of use of county email accounts and offices for political purposes look like child’s plan in comparison.
You can get the gist of what may be going on in Rockford from the article’s subhead:
“Democratic candidate Bob Springer is reportedly running campaign out of office inside Winnebago County Justice Center”
The article reports, the winner of the Democratic Primary Election for Sheriff “occupies an office inside the Winnebago County Justice Center, where he is reportedly running his campaign.”
There have been reports of McHenry County Sheriff’s Department employees doing campaign work for Andy Zinke on the taxpayers’ dime, e.g., posting on his campaign Facebook account, putting up signs, visiting potential voters in uniform and campaigning, and using county vehicles to transport campaign signs.
