Can't be true!!! Leist has an MCSD car?

A commenter on McHenry County Blog posted the following comment to Cal's article that Jim Harrison is already throwing his hat in the ring for the November 2014 election for McHenry County Sheriff.

"(Jim Harrison's) Publicly saying he would get rid of Leist and the EEO position is a great start.

"Reduce the budget and pension responsibilities in one stroke, freeing up $90,000 a year and a company car. (According to sources Leist is driving a Mercedes that was seized in a drug raid.)..."

What's that? EEO "officer" Don Leist has got a take-home car? And it's a Mercedes?"

1. What does Don Leist need a take-home car for? He is a civilian employee of the McHenry County Sheriff's Department. He rides a desk all day. He won't ever have to turn out in the middle of the night for an emergency call. He's an office employee, a paper-pusher. Why in the world would he ever have a take-home car?

2. Why would he ever get a take-home car that was a vehicle seized in a drug raid?

Aren't those vehicles supposed to be used in dedicated service? In very restricted use, since they were, in effect, confiscated? Like maybe as undercover cars to catch more drug dealers?

Is this what Sheriff Nygren and Undersheriff Zinke are condoning?

I'll tell you what we need up here in McHenry County. We need that 27-year-old newspaper editor from Covington, Kentucky (she is in Oregon now) and that 20-year-old college student to come up here and sharpen their teeth on what is going on at our sheriff's department!
