The biggest obstacle to cleaning up the corruption in Illinois is finding a prosecutor. The Good ‘Ole Boys club is alive and well at all levels. See this story from the Edgar County Watchdogs: More Govt Gun Running-We Need Outside Prosecutors To Fix Inside Corruption and Malfeasance
Here’s the latest:
Tari Renner is quoted in the Pantagraph saying his trip to Japan cost somewhere between $600 and $1800. The reporter must not have noticed there is a BIG difference between those two numbers. I remembered writing something about the trip awhile back because there were charges on the PCard report for the flight.
This time when I looked back I noticed a ticket was also purchased for M Ehrilch. That just happens to be the name of Tari’s live-in girlfriend!
This is Margot Ehrlich:
Since she is also a government employee, she should have known better than to allow Tari to buy her ticket with taxpayer money! Doesn’t ISU have ethics training?
No, Home Rule does not allow Tari to spend your money on his girlfriend.
No, Home Rule does not make it okay if he bothers to pay it back. A robber doesn’t get his case dismissed because he gave the booty back!
From the Illinois Constitution: http://www.ilga.gov/commission/lrb/con8.htm
Tari Renner should be investigated for Official Misconduct. The question is: Will our States Attorney care?
Here’s the law – Class 3 Felony!
Why didn’t the City Council ask questions?
This meeting is the ONLY meeting I have ever been forced to file a FOIA for the Bills and Payroll. Coincidence?
