If Keith wanted to have a little side business, I suppose that would be okay, as long as he informed the Sheriff's Department (his own department) that he would be working a side job. Would he approve his own part-time endeavor? The Department must have rules for deputies who can't scrape by on $145,000/year, plus a $50,000/year pension.
But wait... check out the labels on the bottles...
"Compliments of... Sheriff Keith Nygren / McHenry County"
I wonder how he uses these. When a detainee is removed from the I.C.E. detention facility after 30-60-90 days (at $90.00/day), does Keith thank him for being a guest at the Nygren Palace and send him off with a bottle of wine?
Or is wine served to a high-profile prisoner with dinner at the Palace?
Or can an inmate or detainee purchase a bottle of the Sheriff's wine with his commissary privileges and thereby make a large donation to the Inmate Profit Account?
You can easily see the seven-star badge of office that Nygren uses on Department vehicles, such as MARV. Why is a symbol of office used on the label of a bottle of wine? The wording on the badge is hard to read but, if it is the same badge that is used in campaign literature, it includes the words "Sheriff" and "McHenry County Sheriff's Police".
More importantly, why is the Seal of the Great State of Illinois used on a label of a bottle of wine? The State of Illinois must have rules about the use of the Seal.
Are the bottles of wine purchased and paid for by the taxpayers of McHenry County? Cal Skinner wrote on his blog that "On April 25, 2005, Citizens to Elect Sheriff Nygren bought $992.58 worth. It for 'campaign gifts.'”
But nowhere visible on the label is any wording to the effect that the wine was purchased by any campaign committee.
Does Keith think he won't get caught at such shenanigans?
