Corrupt St. Clair County

January 9, 2014 

St. Clair County Board Chairman Mark Kern has brought nothing but shame and disgrace to all the good people in St. Clair County.

He can't win an election on his own merit. People who vote for him have no dignity or self-respect. Only a coward would constantly cause the media to use the words, "Can't be reached for comment."

This is exactly why he refuses to go on the radio with Bob Romanik, the "Grim Reaper." Kern can't fool him.

As far as this sales tax for renovation of the county jail, as it stands now my vote is straight-out "no."

And State's Attorney Brendan Kelly has turned out to be a joke just like his two predecessors (John Baricevic and Robert Haida). As a taxpayer in this county, I demand an outside prosecutor determine whether Coroner Rick Stone should be charged with official misconduct.

Drop the frivolous charges against Romanik. When Steve Wigginton gets done with his investigation, I hope and pray that all the corrupt Democrats get a nice, long vacation.

Thank you to the voters for supporting all this corruption.
