McHenry Democrats Air Dirty Laundry in Court – Part 2

Yesterday, the introduction of the lawsuit filed by self-proclaimed “Progressive” Democrat Kerri Barber and her business associate Katherine Dickerson against Democrats the two label “Centrists”–Michael Bissett, Paula Yensen, Kristina Zahorik and Nancy Zettler–was outlined.

Today, some of the “facts” from the Plaintiffs will be presented.

Barber’s and Dickerson’s firm, Heroic Media is described as “a marketing agency providing marketing, public relations, social media management, and website design and management services.”

It “routinely donates its time and services to candidates campaigning for the Democratic Party in local and national elections.”

The political posts of the Defendants are stated:

  • Mike Bissett (then still Chairman of local Democrats),
  • McHenry County Board member Paula Yensen,
  • Kristina Zahorik (then Vice Chairman of the Party, now Chair, and State Central Committeewoman of the 14th Congressional District), and
  • State Senate Candidate Nancy Zettler (2016 State Rep. candidate), who “acted as a surrogate for Lauren Underwood, a candidate for the Illinois 14th Congressional District, who also edits Gold Pin Independent, for which Barber and Dickerson wrote articles and for which Barber helped maintain the web site.

The 2018 election seems to have provoked the falling out among local Democrats.

In 2016  Lake in the Hills father asked if Jim Walz wanted a picture with the baby. Walz obliged him.

“As part of the 2018 election cycle, Heroic Media donated its time and services to Democratic candidates

  • Jim Walz ,
  • Drew Georgi and
  • Michael Vijuk,”

the filing continues.

Walz was running for the 14th District Democratic Party congressional nomination.

Georgi is the Democrats’ candidate for McHenry County Clerk.

Vijuk is the running for the McHenry County Board in District 1.

May 17, 2017, Heroic Media announced it would be working on Walz’ campaign.n June 28th, 2017,

“Heroic Media sponsored a Congressional Candidate Panel for candidates campaigning for the Illinois 14th Congressional District,” as well as another one, which is identified as “District 5,” but probably is District 6, which covers Algonquin Township.

Nancy Zettler

Zettler was to be the moderator.

The filing continues:

On the day of the panel, Defendant Zettler became upset that Heroic Media sponsored the panel and donated its time and services to Mr. Walz.

Defendant Zettler became enraged in the auditorium and yelled that the panel constituted a conflict of interest.

Upon information and belief, Defendant Zettler had discussed sponsoring Ms. Underwood at the time. Defendant Zettler did not disclose this information.

Following the panel, Defendant Zettler advised community members and community leaders that Plaintiff Barber and Heroic Media “cannot be trusted.”  She further advised community members and community leaders that they “should not listen to” the Plaintiffs.

Defendant Zettler insisted that the contributions of Plaintiff Barber and Plaintiff Dickinson to the Gold Pin Independent also constituted conflicts of interest because of Heroic Media’s volunteer work with Mr. Walz’ campaign.

Contributions to Zettler’s web site by Barber (through September 2017) and Dickerson (through July  2017) continued after the altercation.

Zettler and Barber agreed that she would publish a formal resignation from Barber because of the perceived conflict of interest; Barber cited her firm’s volunteer work for Walz.

McHenry Democrats Air Dirty Laundry in Court – Part 2 — 15 Comments

  1. Zettler is a very sick individual. Nothing she says is any good for anyone.

  2. The whole group of them are psychologically unhinged, it’s a personality trait.

  3. Satan and Lucifer have spoken. Case closed. Tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  4. According to reliable sunshine sources, the baby pictured above is cooperating with the authorities. Sunshine blogger, please get to the bottom of this…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  5. **Tomorrow the candidate Nancy Zettler was supporting is revealed.**

    Ah… the suspense.

    But seriously, having read the court filing (so I don’t need to wait in suspense!), this lawsuit is absurd.

  6. How would I ever be able to sleep tonight with this suspense? Inspired by Sunshine Satan, my mind is already full of conspiracy theories on how the Illuminati and Deep State are maneuvering the right pieces to achieve their desired results. What’s crystal clear to me is the sinister role Jack D. Franks (Jack Franks is a Democrat) is playing behind the scenes. Or is it all ridiculous? Peter Roskam, did you update your C.V. already? Can you hear the whisper? It is the bluenami coming our way. It is overwhelming; and unstoppable, even if Melania “meow-meow” Chump does not care…Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meow, meow, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwww…

  7. How is this worth a lawsuit?

    Disband townships and the Dem Party.

  8. Wouldn’t be a day on the Cal’ Blog, without the puke prose of master wordsmith and favorite pet monkey, Angel.

  9. Aware of the unconditional commitment of our sunshine blogger with our immigrants from the past, present, and future, in my role of friend of this sunshine blog and prodigious researcher, I will allow myself to notify its immense readership (probably 9 miserable lonely angry souls) about an event they will find very interesting. We know our sunshine blogger inadvertently missed it…

    “Citizens outraged by President Donald Trump’s policy of separating children from their parents at the border and placing them in virtual internment camps came together quickly this week to organize Families Belong Together Woodstock, a rally and march around the Square on Sunday, June 24 at 1 pm. The event is part of nationwide Families Belong Together protests that will include marches in Washington, DC and major cities like Chicago on June 30.

    “I have seldom seen such passion about any issue,” said Patrick Murfin, a veteran local activist with the Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Team who was asked to coordinate the event. “Within 24 hours of posting a notice on social media more than three hundred people have said they were going or expressed interest, and that number swells by the hour. I would expect attendance to rival other protests on the Square over the last two years including last summer’s six month anniversary of the Women’s March, and the March for Our Lives event in response to school shooting this March.”

    So far, the list of sponsors from the rally include the Illinois Migrant Council; McHenry County Progressives; Peter Janko, Democratic State Central Committeeman 14th Congressional District; and the Tree of Life Social Justice Team with additions pending.

    The rally, which will begin around the Gazebo on Woodstock Square at 1 pm will feature an invocation by the Rev. Lou Ness, an Episcopal Deacon; Maggie Rivera, Interim Director of the Illinois Migrant Council and Illinois Director of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC); community leader and candidate for McHenry County Board from District 5, Carlos Acosta; lawyer Beth Vonau a partner in KVR Legal which has represented clients held in ICE detention at McHenry County Jail; community volunteer Sue Reckenthaler; the Rev. Eric C. Fistler, Senior Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Crystal Lake; and Janko. Other to be announced. Music and sound system services will be coordinated by Keith Johnson of Off Square Music. Murfin will host the program.

    Following the Rally at around 2 pm there will be a symbolic march around the Square using the sidewalks. There will also be petitions circulating to help people make their voices heard on this issue.

    Thank you Patrick Murfin, a true McHenry County patriot. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  10. Angel forgets that it was a Clinton policy before anyone else came along. You truly are a huge fool.

  11. Nancy Zettler is a big fat P-I-G!

    She tried to nose her snout into my wallet, so I let her have it (not the wallet, a whack from a baseball bat)

  12. Murfin is the County’s Hypocrite #1!

    He wants minority crime to go unreported because it might upset people into fighting back.
