Kentucky Rowan County Clerk’s Deputies issued licenses valid according to Kentucky law

September 14, 2015

Arguments about whether or not marriage licenses issued by Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis’s assistant clerks are valid are nonsense as Kentucky statute specifically states that;

“Any duty enjoined by law or by the Rules of Civil Procedure upon a ministerial officer, and any act permitted to be done by him, may be performed by his lawful deputy”

There is no requirement that the deputy has to have the permission of the clerk to perform their duties.

Kentucky Statute – 61.035 Deputy may act for ministerial officer. Any duty enjoined by law or by the Rules of Civil Procedure upon a ministerial officer, and any act permitted to be done by him, may be performed by his lawful deputy.

However, there is a state law that makes it a crime for an official to refuse to perform their statutory duty.

Kentucky Statutes 522.020 and 522.030 deal with official misconduct in the first and second degree, respectively. “A public servant is guilty of official misconduct in the first degree when, with intent to . . . deprive another person of a benefit, knowingly . . . refrains from performing a duty imposed upon him by law or clearly inherent in the nature of his office or violates any statute or lawfully adopted rule or regulation relating to his office,” .

Official misconduct in the first degree is a Class A misdemeanor and is punishable with imprisonment not to exceed 12 months and fines of $500. Official misconduct in the second degree is a Class B misdemeanor and carries a potential punishment of up to 90 days imprisonment and fines of $250.

Kentucky Statute makes it the county clerk’s duty to issue marriage licenses.

Kentucky Statute 402.080 Marriage license required . No marriage shall be solemnized without a license therefore. The license shall be issued by the clerk of the county [emphasis added]

Therefore, the County Sheriff and Attorney would be within their authority and duty to arrest and charge Kim Davis for failure to perform her sworn duty to uphold the law and issue marriage licenses, either for straight or gay couples. She after all, has committed this crime.

IL AG Lisa Madigan – like the Colonel in movie – A Few Good Men

September 17, 2012

The following quote is by unknown on web site http://www.illinoiscorruption.net

Like actor Jack Nicholson in the movie A Few Good Men [from Wikepedia – “a 1992 American drama film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and Demi Moore. It was adapted for the screen by Aaron Sorkin from his play of the same name. A courtroom drama, the film revolves around the court martial of two U.S. Marines charged with the murder of a fellow Marine and the tribulations of their lawyer as he prepares a case to defend his clients”] —

Here’s “what [Illinois Attorney General ]Lisa Madigan might say[about corrupt Save-A-Life Foundation and their felony funding fraud – obtaining government grants from Homeland Security, Chicago Public Schools, State of Illinois, etc.]

You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world with expensive political campaigns and those campaigns need to be financed by someone. Who’s going to do it? You Annabel Melongo? You ABC? I have a greater gubernatorial ambition that you can possibly fathom. You weep for the [wrongfully appropriated tax] money and curse Carol Spizzirri. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what a campaign costs. Carol Spizzirri’s though full of lies and deceptions saves [corrupt] political lives. My refusal to prosecute Jon Burge though calculated and incomprehensible to you saves my career. I don’t want them prosecuted because deep down I know that’s what we do in Illinois. I need Carol Spizzirri in that role. I want her in that role. In Illinois we use words like earmarks, connections, pay-to-play. We use these words as the backbone of our politics. Other states use them as punch lines. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to people who rise and sleep under the blanket of the legal system I provide and then question the manner in which I provide it. I would rather want they say thank you and go on their way otherwise I suggest they go through a campaign. Either way, I don’t give a damn what people think they’re entitle to.

Whistle Blower Threatened with Death in Illinois

September 11, 2009

I wrote the following comment today, September 11, 2009, in response to an article in the Chicago Sun Times written by Rich Miller entitled “Statehouse Run Like a Mob”- http://www.suntimes.com/news/miller/1764449,CST-EDT-miller11.article 
 
Unfortunately, Rich Miller doesn’t understand how true I find his statement. The following is my comment:

I am going to say what NO ONE will say.
Michael Madigan IS MOB. The following is how they threaten whistle blowers.

Lisa Madigan and her predecessor over the last ten years have illegally indicted legitimate providers of mental health services for Medicaid Vendor Fraud in retaliation for our whistle blower activities against corrupt officials. 80 % of mental health services are provided by non-physicians. The federal Medicaid code instructs physicians to bill for services of employees “as if the services were performed by the physician.” Yet Lisa Madigan claims that it is felony fraud for physicians to bill Medicaid for mental health services provided by their licensed non-employee physicians. She says I can legally bill for my nurse giving a flu shot, but I should go to jail for up to 15 years for billing Medicaid when my employed psychologist performs psychological tests on a patient or an employed drug-addiction counselor counsels an addict. [This essentially denies access to mental health services to persons on Medicaid – really smart Lisa! You don’t want drug addicts, schizophrenics, sex offenders, delinquents and those with violent explosive disorder to obtain mental health treatment unless they are rich. Great way to fight crime in Illinois!]

I was found not-guilty in February. Maisha Hamilton Bennett is languishing in custody and Naomi Jennings on probation with huge fines is suffering at home as a convicted felon. Vernon Glass awaits trial. What connects us – We All Testified Against the State – either corruption at DCFS or elsewhere. I received an “offer” – pay someone connected with the mafia “$10,000 to have a meeting with Michael Madigan” and “it will all go away”. I refused. Vernon Glass and Maisha Hamilton Bennett were also given “offers”. They refused.

The FBI has been informed and have done NOTHING.

I received a phone call that if I keep doing what I am doing – [fighting corruption, talking with the FBI, and speaking out that this is what I am doing] I will “be in the Cal Sag Canal” or that “look under your car before you start it.”

The FBI has refused to provide me witness protection. So I fight on. I have started several blog sites you can find by going on the links at my blog site “drlindashelton.wordpress.com” and “chicagofbi.wordpress.com” and began putting on the Internet the evidence I and other whistle blowers have given the FBI against our corrupt politicians and a number of corrupt police in Illinois. If I am killed – YOU KNOW WHY!

I am now suing Lisa Madigan and other corrupt officials for my false arrest and malicious prosecution before Judge Lefkow in federal court. See case No. 06 C 4259, an amended version of this civil rights suit will be filed with the court and posted at my blogs by October 13, 2009.

“Be a TEAM Player” – Corruption and Patronage in Illinois

December 13, 2008

How do politicians in Cook County garner 70-80% of the vote – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Every public employee during political fundraising season is given a book of tickets to the fundraiser – BE A TEAM PLAYER and sell the tickets [or lose your job]!

Signs go up on lawns of employees of the Secretary of State’s Office and Cook County Sheriff’s Office – BE A TEAM PLAYER and support OUR candidates [or no promotions]!

Public employees who take short lunches so that can finish their work are told – “look, you’re making everyone feel bad by not taking the full lunch that you deserve and a little more” – BE A TEAM PLAYER [or lose your job]!

If  a public employee does his work too fast or too well he is told – “look at your colleagues, you are making them look bad – slow down [so we can hire another patronage worker to get out the vote] – don’t hurt their feelings – BE A TEAM PLAYER [or find a new job]!

Vote often and help the dead to vote – BE A TEAM PLAYER [keep the system going]!

If your neighbors don’t vote for the right candidate – perhaps they don’t deserve the same public services that WE deserve – spill their garbage, send out the building inspector to harass them, defame them, discredit them – BE A TEAM PLAY [or you won’t get services either]!

For corporations and businesses doing business with the State, County, or City – don’t forget to “donate” [kick-back, bribery] 10 % of the income the State GIVES you to the political fund “Friends of Madigan” or “Friends of Blagojevic” or “Friends of Jesse Jackson Jr.” or whomever – you know we can’t give contracts to people unless you are willing to BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Don’t forget the Sheriff’s staff, we need them out campaigning at all the polling places [in plain clothes on public time] to make sure no one “interferes” [or observes] our campaigning tactics [dirty deals] – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Don’t encourage any one immediately connected with the TEAM [Thompson, Daley, Stroger, Divine, Sheahan, Madigans, Burkes, Jones] to negotiate these “donations”,  explain the rules to our employees, or manage the money – BE  TEAM PLAYER!

The team can be informed orally and be at meetings but lets keep this part of the TEAM and don’t put anything in writing – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

Finally – defame, wrongfully arrest, destroy, maliciously prosecute on false charges, even murder any one who gets in our way – Spread Fear to keep the TEAM in check – BE A TEAM PLAYER!

THE ONLY WAY WE WILL BREAK THE CABAL OF CORRUPTION IN ILLINOIS IS FOR THE US ATTORNEY TO ANNOUNCE A GENERAL AMNESTY TO ANYONE WHO COMES FORWARD WITH THE DETAILS ABOUT HOW THE TEAM WORKS AND THE CRIMINAL ACTS THAT WERE PERPETRATED BY THE TEAM, AS WELL AS GUARANTEE THAT ANYONE WHO IS THREATENED OR LOSES HIS JOB FOR COMING FORWARD AS A PATRIOT WILL BE PRETECTED AND THOSE WHO THREATEN THEM WILL GET VERY STIFF SENTENCES. THIS WILL BRING TRANSPARENCY, ELEVIATE FEAR, END THE CORRUPTION, AND ALLOW ILLINOIS TO MOVE ON WITH A LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT, FREEDOM, HONESTY, AND CONCERN FOR ITS CITIZENS THAT HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN. TRUTH COMMISSIONS WORKED IN SOUTH AFRICA – THEY CAN ALSO WORK IN ILLINOIS.

BE A TEAM PLAYER!
