McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael contacted me after she received a phone call from a reporter at WGLT. Knowing that it was likely Tari Renner who told Ryan Denham what to write, she wanted the truth out first.
This saga starts with Bloomington City Manager Tim Gleason sending an email to Kathy and copying others on it: (Interesting Tim used Tari’s email address at IWU instead of his city address)
Tim – you started something that did get out of hand! Are smokers suppose to wear masks? Maybe they can cut a hole or sew in a zipper?
I could provide a bunch of links saying masks are useless, or state the local facts showing infection rates are ridiculously low, or even diseases people forced to wear masks are developing, or I could ask Tim if he is wearing one at all times? But the real story is much better.

Of course Tari Renner had to pretend to be relevant:
Kathy’s response to Tari:
Tari has to respond:
Everyday I lose more and more respect for Tim Gleason. I have lots of friends in Decatur that were thrilled to tell him goodbye. I’m starting to understand why.
Every heard of a telephone Tim? You started this by putting accusations in writing, and copying others, that never should have been made. If anybody owes an apology it’s the Nazi Mask police.
I can’t wait to see what WGLT writes!
