— Central Illinois man files lawsuit over flag burning arrest- AP (DIERSEN: What do flag burners think of you?  Flag burners despise me, if not hate me.  Flag burners, like all my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, blame me for their problems, blame me for your problems, blame me for my problems, and blame me for everyone’s problems.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-illinois-flag-burning-arrest-lawsuit-20170112-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Police in Urbana used Illinois’ flag desecration law to arrest local resident Bryton Mellott on July 4 of last year. He said he carefully planned his demonstration to protest racial discrimination, poverty and other injustices, and then posted six photographs of his actions on Facebook. The posts, which generated hundreds of comments, led police officers to arrest Mellott while he worked at Wal-Mart and detain him for several hours. He was released without being charged. Mellott, who is being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, was expected to discuss the lawsuit at a Thursday news conference in Champaign. The suit was filed late Wednesday. . .The Illinois case comes as the issue has been in the headlines. President-elect Donald Trump recently said that anyone who burns an American flag should face “consequences,” like jail or a loss of citizenship, despite the Supreme Court determinations.)

— Only club members vote in secret Illinois elections – Phil Kadner
http://chicago.suntimes.com/opinion/kadner-only-club-members-vote-in-secret-illinois-elections/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Politicians hold secret meetings to select replacements for state legislators who leave office. No outsiders supervise the proceedings. It is not open to the public. That’s the law in Illinois. I’ve known about that process for years, but the lack of oversight really hit home after state Rep. Monique Davis, D-Chicago, recently resigned. On Jan. 5, a meeting of Democratic committeemen from her legislative district, the 27th, was allegedly held to name a replacement. That would include committeemen from the 9th, 19th, 21st and 34th wards in Chicago and Calumet, Orland, Bremen and Worth townships in the suburbs, as far as I can tell.)

— The unsung heroes of Illinois  Watchdogs John Kraft and Kirk Allen are raising a racket over local corruption – Johnny Kampis  (DIERSEN: When do you raise racket?  I raise racket when Republican elected officials and party leaders fail/refuse to defend/advance the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling.  Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can/will defend/advance their platform.)
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/11/the-unsung-heroes-of-illinois/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Perhaps the most long-lasting effect of the investigative work done by John Kraft and Kirk Allen with Edgar County Watchdogs isn’t the more than 200 officials they’ve chased out of office, but the viral impact they’ve had. Others in Illinois have formed their own groups in Illinois to combat waste, fraud and abuse by public officials, including a coalition in Morgan County that has managed to bust several bureaucrats there. “They’re replicating the model,” Mr. Allen said. “We’re excited to see them step up and have success.” Edgar County Watchdogs, now rebranded as Illinois Leaks, has also spurred state media to action. Mr. Allen said Chicago Tribune reporters have told him his and Mr. Kraft’s work has “forced them to do a better job and do it faster.” Messrs. Kraft and Allen came together in 2011, discussing each other’s bureaucratic woes at a candidate’s dinner. Mr. Kraft had asked to film a school graduation so he could sell the video and learned that someone else was hired for the job without public discussion. Mr. Allen, the volunteer fire chief in the town of Kansas, learned that a dispatcher didn’t instruct the parents of a baby having trouble breathing on CPR techniques. He investigated and learned the 911 call center hadn’t certified its dispatchers in CPR techniques in the past six years, as is required by law. Further investigation there determined that taxpayer money was used for everything from pizza parties to gambling. Messrs. Kraft and Allen created their website and started investigating, using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to uncover a fount of bureaucratic blunders.)

 

DAILY CALLER
— HUD Spent Almost $1M To Cover Up Accusation Against Top Exec – Luke Rosiak  (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government never made a racist remark to me, but my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in September of 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests. In 1997, in today’s dollars, GAO paid me $122,991. My pension is only $50,720. $122,991 minus $50,720 times 19 years and 4 months is $1,397.239.)
http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/11/exclusive-hud-spent-1m-to-cover-up-accusation-against-top-exec/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Taxpayers wrote a $900,000 settlement check to a federal employee to compensate her for once being likened to a “Little Rascals” character by her boss, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group (TheDCNF)  has learned. The secret settlement appears to be one of the largest-ever discrimination settlement payouts to an individual federal employee. The payment came after an Equal Opportunity Employment office ruled that the remark was racist and accepted without challenge the claim that it caused nearly a million dollars worth of emotional harm. The offending boss was Mary K. Kinney, then-executive vice president of Ginnie Mae, which is part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).)

Author: David Diersen
