Based on what I read about local news from these 3 counties [Lake, Portage, Knox], published on the internet, I think it’s slowly dawning on people that corruption carries a heavy price tag. Especially people over 40 “on the left” who are paying higherproperty taxes (as a percent of disposable real income), and wondering how all that money gets spent, and just who gets to decide where it gets spent.
But it’s not sufficient to know that corruption exists in one’s County, in general
terms. You have to uncover discrete, tangible, unambiguous cases of
individuals breaking the law (or bending it in a way only Picasso could love)
and then make his or her life MISERABLE, day and night, until he or she
gives up the names of those who put him up to it, and the modus operandis.
blackmailing assemblyman Nader Sayegh into changing his vote, after the
13-13 split decision on Repealing Religious Freedom. It’s entirely obvious
from that video, that someone at a level well above Heastie’s has a
Control File on Sayegh (and probably on two or three others, as well).
Our country cannot return to being one based on the Rule of Law, until we
stop being one based on the Control File. Period.
in-your-face corruption pales in comparison.
