And you have evidence of Schocks "illegal methods"? Perhaps if you do you should inform law enforcement so he can be properly arrested and tried in a court of law, instead of just spreading rumors without evidence.

What does this woman know about being intelligent? Isn't she the one who claimed they had to pass Obamacare to know what is in it? I would think the Prime Minister of Israel knows a lot more about Iran than the Congresswoman from San Francisco.

Illinois State Fair officials busted for getting free beer tickets

7 months ago from Associated Press

An Illinois state fair official is without a job following a scandal over free beer tickets. 

Investigators say former DuQuoin State Fair Manager John Rednour asked a beer vendor to give him up to two-thousand free beer tickets in 2012.  

The tickets were worth between four and eight-thousand dollars, which is more than the state's Gift Ban allows. 

Rednour resigned back in January and agreed to stay off the state's payroll for at least five years. 

The Illinois State Fair Manager was also caught up in the free beer scandal.  Amy Bliefnick was fined a-thousand-bucks and ordered to serve a two-day suspension without pay for taking unsolicited tickets from beer vendors last year.  

There's no evidence that she actually asked for the tickets, but she took them as part of a "long-standing practice" and handed them out to senior members at the Department of Ag.
