Remember we brought you last week Sangamon County Sheriffs Office Falsifying Documents & Lying To State Inspectors!?!? ?
Boy it must be a common thing for the Sheriffs Office to just lie to everyone. We got Administrators lying to Inspectors, A Deputy lying under oath at Court, Deputies found lying in their official reports, then an Administrator lying to the Press and to the Attorney General!
Remember the State Journal Register Article done on Springfield Exposed in October?
“for the past two months, contributing to a spike in overtime costs of more than $15,000 this year Currently, about 75 percent to 80 percent of all open-records requests the sheriff’s records division processes come from Springfield IL Exposed, Walton said. On some days, the site submits more than 40 requests for documents, such as police reports, mug shots and internal affairs files, Walton said”
Lets take a look at the overtime log for those “last two months” CLICK HERE TO READ THE OVERTIME LOG FOR AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER 2015! .
Doesn’t look to be no $15,000 to me…
In a recent letter to the Illinois Attorney Generals Office Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office Director Michael Walton stated on average they are spending 15 hours a week in overtime to address FOIA requests.
Again you can see that is a lie…
I’d ask Sangamon County Sheriff Wes Barr to fix the issues, but as we found out yesterday its hard for him to even follow the rules he expects his employees to follow in the story (Sangamon County Sheriff Wes Barr Social Media Campaign Manager Accused Again Of Sex Crime! ). Also he never returns our request for comment or an interview either.
