Undersheriff Andrew Zinke is fighting it out with Cal Skinner again. This time Skinner alleges that Zinke was able to get his website www.mchenrycountyblog.com taken down for a short period of time on Wednesday December 11th.

What seem to have occurred, was someone working for Zinke’s campaign, contacted Skinner’s host provider to his website. They told the provider that he was in violation of the terms of service by “stalking” Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and linking to an obscene website. I will get to the obscene website here in a second, but let’s address stalking.

Other than the fact that Cal Skinner’s website was taking down and his Freedom of Speech was momentarily gagged, this is very comical. I am unsure what terms of service was violated on a website were stalking becomes involved and is outside of a criminal complaint. Right when I am convinced that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke is the best thing for Bill Prim’s campaign the scope widens. It appears that under Zinke’s leadership, his poor judgment has effected not only his decisions but now the decisions of those working for him. I am unsure what the angle is on “Stalking.” I don’t get it. I guess it can be likened to a reporter “stalking” the news. It really is the same.

Deputy Zane Seipler

Deputy Zane Seipler

How weak does this man look? He is running for Sheriff, and he wines to webhosting server provider that he is being stalked. What kind of confidence does this give a prospective voter who is on the fence in the McHenry County Sheriff’s race? How much laughter does this provide to his opponent’s supporters? I just have to wonder if pride exists inside a man that is running for sheriff that would make any kind of claim that he was being stalked by a blogger. Sounds scary and frightening for a man that carries a gun on his hip most of the time.

Let’s go to the other alleged charge that Skinner was linking to an obscene website. The obscene website is Zane Seipler’s website http://zinke4sheriff.blogspot.com/. If you don’t know Zane Seipler, he is the whistle blowing deputy that brought to the public’s attention that the McHenry County Sheriff’s office was racial profiling. Sheriff Keith Nygren has fired Seipler in retaliation for his whistle blowing on the sheriff’s office and is currently in another lawsuit to get his job back. He is also running against Zinke for Republican Precinct Committeeman and he is also running for the County Board in District 5. If the Truth is obscene then Zinke is right Zane Seipler website is obscene. Cal Skinner was told that there were couple of articles that Zinke found super offensive.

Zinke Letter SGT

Letter that Zinke sent to Merit Commission requesting a review without merit his failed Sergeant’s Exam

The first article is Undersheriff Andrew Zinke failing the Sergeant’s Exam. I am sure that he is not finding this ideal when one of his cornerstones in his campaign is Education. It looks worse when you see Zinke’s letter to the Merit Commission (they are responsible for the promotion and discipline of deputies). He asks the Merit Commission to review his test, based on the advice of former Undersheriff Eugene Lowery. He had taken a test, failed, requested a review, and for whatever reason passed. Andrew Zinke was hoping for the same luck or divine right. I personally did not understand not having a basis to request a review for a test. The Merit Commission did respond back letting Zinke know that he had no hope of passing the exam as he scored weak and was graded in the low area of Patrols, Investigation, and Supervision. Again, not the type of letters you would expect in the background of a candidate running on Education as being a strength.

The second article was in reference to the Letters themselves. As a demonstration that the McHenry County Sheriff’s office does not follow the law in processing Freedom of Information Act requests (FOIA), Seipler had requested these documents from the sheriff’s office. The requests was for all correspondence that Zinke has had with the Merit Commission going back to 1994, which includes the letters. Seipler matched the letters to the six documents sent back from his FOIA requests and they were excluded. Another confirmation that FOIA requests are not handled based on law but how it serves the interests of those that are supposed to be enforcing the law.

I am surprised that is all that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke mentioned to be offensive on Zane Seipler’s website. On Seipler’s website, he has a lot of information about Undersheriff Andrew Zinke, and the sheriff’s office. Numerous campaign violations, hiding who control’s federal grant money, background on supporters (like Local 150, that I tied to Colombo and Gambino crime family), and other topics to be covered like sexual harassment, the Zacatecas/ Monterey and McHenry Connection, former deputy and pedophile  Greg Pyle, traffic deaths, Sheriff General Order Violations and much, much more. If you want insider information that you will not get anywhere else without being an insider yourself, check out http://zinke4sheriff.blogspot.com. I check it out about one or twice a week.

It has been a rough last six months for Andy Zinke’s and Cal Skinner’s relationship. Things seemed to have started to escalate on the 4th of July this year.  At the Crystal Lake 4th of July Parade Undersheriff Andrew Zinke flipped off Cal Skinner in uniform, while driving a sheriff vehicle, near a church, on a parade route lined with families and children. Then Skinner caught Zinke sending a politically charged email from work, which is a campaign violation and is illegal. Skinner files a complaint with the Ethics Commission advising of the violation. A sham hearing was conducted behind closed doors, and the Good Ol’ Boy network exonerated the child minded Zinke. Then Zinke’s attorney could not bask in the sun on the sham hearing that exonerated his client, so he scheduled a hearing to which he was going to try and levy a $5,000 fine against Skinner. The rationalization of a candidate running for sheriff levying a $5,000 fines against citizens does not help approval numbers in a election; so it was not pursued. Just as when you are thinking that things are on the mend between Zinke and Skinner, man-child Zinke tries to take down Skinner’s website and succeeds in doing so for a little while. Just imagine if Zinke was ever sheriff, what transgressions he could act out against citizens that he did not like then. Maybe something for all of us to seriously ponder about going into the sheriff election.

KNOWLEDGE CENTER

I have put together some of the articles that I have written that are prevalent for the upcoming election in MARCH!. This is the Republican Nominee election but probably more important than the general election. It is most likely the winner in March will win in November and become sheriff. If you review the articles in the Knowledge Center, you will read all kinds of unbelievable things as it relates to this election.

 

My mother and father, Ron and Kathy Scharff, 1969.

Freedom of Information Act Appeal to get the remainder of my father’s file. In my efforts to get to the bottom of my father’s murder and what the McHenry County Sheriff’s office has done to me and my family 33 years ago. I filed a FOIA Request (Freedom of Information Act Request) to get my father’s case file. Many documents were withheld from my request. It is my believe the documents are withheld to protect guilty individuals that are known to Sheriff Keith Nygren and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke that covered up who actually killed my father during the original investigation. Start on page 11 to read what sounds like a murder mystery thriller, but this is my true life. It is backed by FBI reports, witness statements, and newspaper articles.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Rita Corporation on RT 31Andrew Zinke for McHenry County Sheriff, Really??? This article is based on my own father’s murder investigation and Undersheriff Andrew Zinke. I talked about how he made his own milestones and failed to meet every single one. How it took me calling NBC News Chicago to get Andrew Zinke to return my phone call about my father’s murder investigation, as he was the lead investigator. I am fighting to get the remainder of my father’s case file. It is my believe that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Sheriff Keith Nygren are hiding and protecting individuals that covered up the true killer of my father during the original investigation.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and the Rita Corporation on RT 31Andrew Zinke plus Rita Corporation equals ON THE TAKE Brian Goode and his RITA Corporation was a person of interest and focal point for the investigation of the distribution of 30 plus tons of marijuana. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke told Brian Goode of the investigation. Two days later, according to Koziol, (Sgt. Koziol was working on the investigation and filed a complaint against Zinke) Goode gave Zinke’s election campaign a $5,000 donation. The RITA Corporation address is the same address as Andrew Zinke’s campaign headquarters.

Deputy Zane SeiplerMcHenry County Deputy Zane Seipler under siege, Again!! Zane Seipler is a whistleblowing deputy that was fired by Keith Nygren after he exposed the sheriff’s office for racial profiling. Nygren was forced to hire Seipler back after he lost an arbitration ruling, a court hearing, an appellate court hearing, and a failed attempt to be heard by the Illinois State Supreme Court. After Seipler was hired back, Nygren fired him again. Zane Seipler is currently fighting to get his job back.

Deputy Scott Milliman in uniform.

Another McHenry County Deputy under siege, Scott Milliman Scott Milliman was a deputy and former right hand man to Sheriff Keith Nygren. He was fired by the sheriff for whistleblowing that the sheriff allegedly transacted in ticket fixing, bribery, general corruption, fraud in a SBA Loan, and in tapping Milliman himself to kill a McHenry County Judge and a Coroner’s Candidate. Scott Milliman is currently fighting to get his job back.

Gary Gauger, of Richmond, was wrongly convicted of murdering his parents in 1993 and sentenced to death. After years in prison his sentence was overturned and two gang members were later convicted of the murders. Gauger is released a book detailing the event called IN SPITE OF THE SYSTEM. (Ryan Rayburn photo)

How Gary Gauger got to DEATH ROW This is the real life, tragic story of Gary Gauger. He was falsely arrested and sent to Death Row by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department for the double murder of his parents. Investigators from the sheriff’s department rigged a false confession so that they could convict him.

 

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke giving Cal Skinner the finger at the 4th of July Parade in Crystal Lake, IL.

McHenry County Ethics Commission, Ethical or NOT!?!? The McHenry County Ethics Commission conducted a hearing of a complaint filed by Cal Skinner that Undersheriff Andrew Zinke used a government computer for a very politically charged email. The hearing was ran over by Zinke’s attorneys Mark Gummerson and Rebecca Lee. The sign up sheet to speak at the hearing went missing but found in the possession of Rebecca Lee. The commission went into secret session, made its decision, and did so without explanation.

Pete Gonigam, publisher of the First Electric Newspaper.

First Electric Newspaper v.s. Sheriff Nygren and EEO Officer Donald Leist Pete Gonigam won a Public Access Bureau (Illinois States Attorney) appeal for the release of a 100 page report conducted by the McHenry County Sheriff’s office. The report exonerated Undersheriff Andrew Zinke after he told Brian Goode that he and his RITA Corporation was a the focal point of a drug investigation by the DEA.

Undersheriff Andrew Zinke giving Cal Skinner the finger at the 4th of July Parade in Crystal Lake, IL.

Zinke’s middle finger may cost Cal Skinner $5,000 After filing a valid ethics complaint against Undersheriff Andrew Zinke for using a government computer for his campaign, Cal Skinner was to face Zinke’s attorney Mark Gummerson. Gummerson was lobbying for a $5,000 fine against Skinner filing a valid complaint. An act of bulling and intimidation of a McHenry County citizen.

Local 150 International Union of Operating Engineers

Will McHenry County be Ripped Off by Special Interest in Sheriff Election? I question the interest and the contribution to Undersheriff Andrew Zinke’s campaign from the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150 election. I send a letter to the President-Business Manager of the union James M. Sweeney.

Local 150 International Union of Operating Engineers

IUOE Local 150 and Andrew Zinke. Is this Gangster Money for a Gangster Cop? The International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 150 contributes money to Undersheriff’s Andrew Zinke’s campaign. They have known ties to the Colombo and Gambino Crime Families.

Zinke-looking-right-eyes-at-cameraAndrew Zinke Fearful to Debate Bill Prim Lies to Get Out of It. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke is so fearful to debate Bill Prim for McHenry County Sheriff that he lies to get out of it. Zinke knows that he would be out matched, outwitted, and the truth of his corrupt character would be revealed to the citizens of McHenry County. Instead of enduring such damage to his campaign he lies to coward out of it.

    Clearly, Andy Zinke has demonstrated that he lacks the professionalism and integrity, to run the McHenry County Sheriffs Department. This was a desperate act from a desperate man who can’t face the fact that the truth about he and the regime is posted on this blog and other blogs everyday..

    He likes to perform in that “Circus Act” of his.

    The people of McHenry County do not want a “Passive Aggressive” person such as Andy Zinke running the McHenry County Sheriffs Department. He is definitely a person who thinks it is appropriate to “GET EVEN” with those individuals Andy perceives has done him wrong.

    Gosh, that same scenario sounds familiar. Remember, Nygren asked someone to kill Dave Bachman because he was upset about Daves blog and the revelations of the Sheriffs Department and potential illegal activities. Watch out everyone, Keith Nygren and Andy Zinke will get even if the decide you have done them wrong. You should be commended Keith, you have taught your obedient soldier, Andy Zinke, very well.

    Calling all Psychiatrists, it is a Zinke family emergency. The most recent actions of Andy Zinke clearly shows that a Psych Evaluation would be appropriate. Gosh, I hope they get that done before the primaries in March.

    Now Andy, did you really think you would get away with shutting down Cal’s blog?…Just one more, dishonest action by Andy Zinke…. It’s time to turn that finger right around and point it at yourself..

    Hey “Fukoku” = Kim Zinke Whatsa matter girlfriend, something got your tongue? Sure hope its Andy. Because it’s about time he shut you up…

    Boy oh boy, if you ever run for political offices, it would be best to consult with Andy and Kim Zinke. They have a new book coming out. It will be called “Political Campaigning for Dummies” It’s not likely Keith Nygren can get you out of this one Andy.. That “Big Fat Hole” you have dug for yourself is too deep even for Keith Nygren…Call the local 150 they are experts at excavating…

    Hey Andy, where you be these days?
    Hope you are not going door to door trying to garner more votes.
    Because let me tell you, you are just wasting your time…
    Don’t you all, just love that social media?
    That Internet Andy, has changed your life forever.

  • 4 letter domains says:

    In my opinion I don’t think Mr Zinke should be employed in McHenry County. Furthermore I don’t think Nygren should be getting a pension from the tax payers of McHenry County.

  • 4 letter domains says:

    Hi Cynthia,

    I believe that Zinke will have a hard time standing on his own two feet, my bias against him aside. All though he was learning the ways. He did well in the debate in projecting confidence even when he was not telling the truth. I think it would be best that he did leave. He does not have the respect of the deputies and I think now deputies will be more outspoken about how they really feel about him. Best to move on. You do bring up an important point about pensions, but I believe that we would need to look at changing the law. Nygren legally has his so unless we can get him on a charge that revokes his pension it is his. Thank you for taking the time to comment Cynthia.
