Was Nygren's signature forged?
April 22, 2011
A reader has questioned whether Sheriff Keith Nygren signed the April 15, 2011, media release about the crash involving the McCullom Lake PD squad car. You can see Nygren's signature on the media release on the sheriff's website at http://www.mchenrysheriff.org/ Look under Press Release on the left side, and then click on the McCullom Lake release dated April 15.
The signature resembles the sheriff's signature, but there are differences. Did someone at the Department sign his name? Or rubber-stamp it? Was he in town on April 15?
If someone signed or stamped his name, that's forgery. Even if they had authority to sign certain documents in his absence, it's forgery. It's forgery because they did not include an indication that they were signing his name, such as their own initials at the end of his name, perhaps encircled. Of course, that would be a clue that he wasn't around to sign it.
Forgery of a sheriff's name on an official document? That ought to be pretty serious. Right?
And another reader has asked me whose new, shiny, white Lincoln SUV (a Navigator?) is parked in the garage at the sheriff's registered voting address. The vehicle has a sheriff's department decal on it. Has it been in that garage for the month he has been gone?
Is that what the sheriff is driving now? A Navigator? What did that cost??? What happened to the Chevy Tahoe with the leather seats? What was wrong with it? Just time to upgrade?
