Carpentersville Village President Bill Sarto is doing what is known as, “WAG THE DOG.”
Remember the movie, “WAG THE DOG” starring Robert DeNiro as the Spin Doctor named Conrad Brean and Dustin Hoffman played Stanely Motss [the “t” is silent] who played a famous Hollywood Director, who orchestrated a global conflict.
For those who have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it. The movie was about a President who was sort of caught with his pants down and decided to use the expertise of a Spin Doctor, to distract the public from the scandal.
Well movie fans, King Sarto is employing the same tactic, to distract the families of Carpentersville from a scandal that will engulf his political career. This political bully has used everything, but the kitchen sink to embarrass, intimidate and harass his perceived political enemies. This includes, elected officials and private citizens alike.
King Sarto expects his subjects to kneel down in his presence and to follow commands, without questions. This egomaniac now commands his appointees [Sherry Dobson, Nate Spain and Michael Sievertson] to boycott the Audit and Finance Commission meeting tonight. Of course these loyal subjects of King Sarto will follow the command of their master. It’s very unfortunate that these three civilians are going to play along with King Sarto’s political ploys and not take Carpentersville’s interests at heart.
So, why the “Wag The Dog” theory? Carpentersville President Bill Sarto had committed “PERJURY” on April 23, 2008, during a Bench Trial at the Elgin Courthouse. We do need to wait for the “written opinion” of Judge Cargerman at the same Courthouse on May 1st at 1pm, with Judge Boles presiding. If, the verdict finds Frank F. Stoneham innocent of the claims made by Bill Sarto and Paul Calusinski on the events of November 20, 2007, then the next step will be to prosecute Village President Bill Sarto of “PERJURY.”
It was very apparent that both Village President Bill Sarto and his vigilante friend Paul Calusinski lied under oath. The State Attorney did not even questioned Frank F. Stoneham, even after the State Attorney’s witnesses were discredited by Mr. Stoneham who represented himself, during the trial. He made several objections that were sustain by Judge Cargerman, when both State Attorney’s witnesses were using “hearsay” to try to discredit Mr. Stoneham. Mr. Sarto and Mr. Calusinski both couldn’t get their stories straight and also changed their answers, during cross-examination by Mr. Stoneham.
When the witnesses for Mr. Stoneham were questioned by him, they gave concise and straight answers of the events of November 20, 2007. The State Attorney made repeated objections, which were overruled by the Judge, except for one, which was based on hearsay. The State Attorney only gave one question to one of the witnesses, which was answered promptly and correctly. Seems quite queer does it not, that the State Attorney did not try to discredit Mr. Stoneham’s witnesses or for that matter, not even bother to question Mr. Stoneham? Why, you say? Because, even the State Attorney knew she had already lost her case, after the cross-examination by Mr. Stoneham. Mr. Sarto and Mr. Calusinski got caught in a web of lies and we know, it’s harder to remember lies, than to tell the truth.
May 1st may be the day that King Sarto may have to consider to abdicate his throne. But, I’m sure that like most tin pot dictators, he would rather watch the Village of Carpentersville burn to the ground, before he’s forced out of office.
Just my thoughts,
