At the McHenry County Board’s meeting last Tuesday, there were two camera boxes.
Designated by duct tape and about six-foot square, they were obviously intended to limit coverage by cameras of the meeting.
You may remember that Edgar County Watchdogs came to a previous Board meeting and set up their video equipment front row right.
Tuesday, one camera box was located back to the right.
Walsh Freedom had set up its video recorder there.
On the other side of the room, there was a second camera box.
It was farther back.
But, there were three video cameras.
By the time the Edgar County Watchdogs had entered the room, both of the “official” camera boxes were occupied.
So what would appear on Illinois Leaks was set up right behind the door audience members entered.
Why did Board Chairman Jack Franks set up the camera boxes?
I’ll leave that to commenters to speculate upon.
