Sheriff Keith Nygren - Vintner???


You've got to check out the photographs of private-label bottles of red and white wine of McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren!!!

Go to www.mcsdexposed.blogspot.com/ and to www.mchenrycountyblog.com/

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?

Hi, Gus: Let's see how YOUR sense of humor is today. Are you feeling funny yet? First, Woodstock should be so lucky to have you as sheriff to clean up all of their dirt.

And, secondly, for a little boost to your campaign, here's an idea you may wish to consider. For those who are curious about twenty-one-year-old Ms. Jessie Lunderby's profession, submit a Facebook Friend Request to her or Gus. Gus will most certainly accept you as his Facebook friend (won’t you?), where you may then visit his Profile “Likes” List to find not only Ms. Lunderby, but also, several pretty creepy-looking Facebook profile pictures of “admirers” and their even scarier comments.

Gus, seriously, given her experience at "jail work," I think you should ask Jessie Lunderby to help manage your online campaign with her soft porn. She probably doesn't know yet real men don't need or use porn, but that's okay.

Since Jessie obviously enjoys "casting her pearls before swine," maybe the two of you could work out some kind of a contract, in which mutually acceptable terms of employment might spelled out, so that, once elected - and I am one hundred percent in support of your election - your offer to hire her will be made good. Then the two of you could ride into the sunset together without ever having to rope any criminals into your jail!

Plus, you would have the distinction of being the first sheriff ever to hire Ms. Lunderby to do absolutely nothing except show up every day in her skimpy outfits and stroll through the jail! The more I think about my idea, the more convinced I remain that once elected as sheriff - what with your keen mind, plus Jessie's "photo generosity" - it will take only about four months to fill those jail cells with all the "bad guys," who will literally flock in and "sign up" to go to jail. You'll probably need to set up some type of a lottery or waiting list, so that all those male (and female?) felons can sign up and wait patiently to be called in to jail, where they can then boast about actually being able to land in a county jail where Ms. Lunderby poses as their warden!

Give it some thought, and let me know. Hey, maybe Sheriff Nygren will put himself in your jail, just so he can watch Ms. Lunderby walk past his cell every day of the week!

To the poster of the 12:12PM message, THANK YOU.

I'll get in touch with Jessie L. - not sure she'll be interested, unless she can be McHenry County's first female undersheriff. If the jail fills up (especially the $90/day I.C.E. unit (Jessie, do you speak Spanish?)) and the inmates quiet down, we'll all be happy.

We could "threaten" the inmates with three days off (with pay, of course) if the inmates cause any problems. A day without Jessie should keep them in line.

Jessie, call me on Nov. 3 for a job application.

Too bad this isn't California!

Then maybe I could get a free bag of dope, too!

Okay, Gus:
The white flag is flying way up high. You gave the last word on my post(s),and since this is your blog site, thank you for posting me yesterday. I acknowledge that each of us has our own perspective on a wide variety of topics,and that's what makes life so much fun.
Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for "taking it on the chin" from me yesterday. I'm not retracting here, but just need to publicly thank you for the "cyber fun," though, honestly, I'm not sure where the fun began and the sarcasm ended. You're still my "top dog" for Sheriff of McHenry County! I still think the best of you as a person also.

The Sheriff is going to be on a fixed income like the rest of us older folks so he may be looking at a little side money to suplement his pension.

Great. Just what McHenry County needed - Otis passing out bottles of wine.
