“[Rock Island County Board Chair Jim] Bohnsack said the rumors [about Terronez] weren’t confirmed to him until Oct. 22, when Terronez went to his office and told him he had made a mistake and was under investigation by the Illinois State Police . . . When asked if he thought Terronez should have resigned earlier, Bohnsack said he would have, but he acknowledged that’s easy for him to say now. He noted that Terronez has a family to provide for.”
And there you have the KKKK in a nutshell. Bohnsack knew in October that Terronez had commited a crime, but rather than urge/force him to resign, he figured Terronez could dodge the bullet with the union Democrat Illinois Police and the Democrat Attorney General.
What the heck, everybody knew Blago was under investigation too, but he still got elected to a second term.
So in KKKK world, the taxpayers are obligated to fund a criminal because “he has a family to provide for.”
Mike Jacobs and other Powerful Politburo Poobahs try to frame Terronez as a rogue with a personal failing—not a political failing. But 40 years of Democrat control of county government with county offices packed with family, friends, donors and patronage jobs, the idea sets in that the Dems are above the law and entitled to do whatever they please—with no consequences.
This will not change until there is more political balance and the entrenched Democrat union workforce is ousted.
But at least Bohnsack was thinking of the chilllldren.
Or maybe just business as usual in The Land Of KKKK.
