Shaun Missey wasn't a Counts/Sweeney lackey and therefore was illegally disqualified from the ballot by their willing accomplice, Diane Waller. The buck needs to stop with the inept mayor, and it's too bad he isn't named as well! It's only when Counts and Sweeney are gone will there even be a chance of improving how our tax dollars are dealt with and bettering this town for small business. Too bad this lawsuit essentially comes after the fact. Too bad rags like the Leader only publish press releases by the administration rather than real investigative journalism.

The lawsuit reads like a Chicago political play book. Rigging elections is a very serious charge. One can get up to ten years in prison, or two can get up to ten years in prison each. There is plenty of documentation that shows that it was OK for some and not OK for others. Shame on Diane Waller and Bob Sweeney for treating Bill Moritz(goose) and Randy Crisler(goose) differently than Shawn Missey(gander) and Rodney Mullins(gander). What a tangled web they have weaved.

Both of them are terrible people, and hopefully, they will get cells far away from the Ellisville corruptocrats who will be joining them, so they can't exchange tips.

Never thought Chet Pleban would be the Elliott Ness to clean the area up, but apparently, he is the only attorney with the cojones to cross the the thin blue line that shields members of the legal fraternity. Funniest part of all is that Sweeney positioned Diane to take the fall, all while whispering sweet nothings in her ear about immunity, and she fell for it. HAHA!

Paid and Evade - two words rhyme and would fit nicely into a limerick but they sure do not mean the same thing. Crisler and Moritz paid. Paid late but paid. No tax owed. Missey took the evade path and still has not been moved to the paid column. Quite a difference.

Still did not pay in time. Way after close of sign ups. What other candidates were not allowed to be on the ballot because of the same thing? What's good for the goose should be good for the gander. Sweeney keeps changing his "opinion" to suit his purpose of stacking the council in favor of keeping the money flowing into his bank account due to his litigious advice.

Great now I m going to file a lawsuit like everyone else and sue the IDIOTS that are suing now. This is stupid and dumb you talk about waisting taxpayers dollars and the first thing you want to do is sue. missey didnt have his taxes paid so he doesnt get on the ballot plain as that have all your ducks in a row next time then go out and run for office again next year when Cricky Lang's seat comes up. Sounds to me like your turning into a gloryhound lke the rest of the lot. Yeah Hay Boyer and Doris im talking about you. You always have to use the conspiracy theory when it comes to people that you think are getting screwed did you ever sit back and say maybe he didnt pay them on time?? or is it easy for you just to go after counts and everyone else that you think wronged Mr.Missey. If he really wants what is best for the city then why sue?In my opinion once you start getting incahoots with hay boyer and doris a.k.a. the three headed monster your political career will be over before it gets started.

So what your saying Mr. West, is that it was ok for Crisler and Moritz to do it and get by based on a legal opinion by Sweeny? I guess when it's not in the Sweeny, Counts, Amato, and West plan then its wrong. I like to refer to Sweeney, Counts, and Amato as circus clowns and anyone that follows them as the pooper scoopers. How does it smell back there, Mr. West. Funny you mention Ms. Lang, who at one time was a follower of the Amato clan. Didnt take that smart chic long to figure it out, did it. Too bad she had to leave us at such a young age. Oh I think Mr. Chet has his ducks all in a row and some certain people's heads may be wondering in a few months what hit them. Even when the facts hit you in the eyeball you still fail to see it. I guess you follow their rules and keep your head in the sand.

Oh boy , big words of wisdom coming from a nutjob that wanted to beat up Doris and a disabled man at a arnold park picnic. The same big man that demanded Doris get out of a car on a parking lot so he could beat the snit outta her.
Yep, YOU goofy west stood behind the two drunken snipe sign hangers the whole way. That says a lot about your character and upbringing!
I wouldn't listen to you if you said the sun will rise tomorrow! All the corruption aside ... I hope she wins just for YOU !!!!

Show proof that Counts was involved. To me it looks like Sweeney only. You're trying to implicate someone and have no proof.

Counts is the Mayor. Sweeney and Shockey both answer to him. If he doesn't know what is going on, then he is guilty of dereliction of duty. It is his JOB to know what is going on, it is their JOB to report to him.Definition: Deliberate, conscious, or willful neglect (esp in the phrase dereliction of duty.)

So what your saying is Sweeney and Waller kept it a secret so that Counts knew nothing about it? I'm pretty sure it was all over the papers. How could he not know? Unless.......he kept his head in the sand so they could proceed with their plan. Come the hell on, CC, he didnt do anything to step in and stop it, now did he?

I pay attention , I read all the papers, I attend or watch the council videos, I have gathered all my facts and my proof !

It's not my job to keep you up to speed. If you can't keep up then STFU!
I have no patience for your stupidity and would appreciate it if you did not respond to me!
If you continue to do so....well then you get what you deserve.

Let's play "Who has the biggest bank account".

First, let your ego get the best of you and claim it has been bruised.

Then, roll the dice to see who you will sue in court for compensation for bruising the ego.

Then, hire a lawyer. Preferable a high priced one. Give the lawyer some money.

File the case in court. Cross your fingers and hope the other side has some insurance or some unencumbered assets. Maybe the insurance will settle for some nominal sum to make you go away.

Split the settlement with the lawyer. Take what's left over to rub on your bruised ego to help it heal.

The game ends when the lawyers pocket most of the money.

Optional: Make your case higher profile by filing your state court claim in federal court.

Afterwards, the rest of us who were not playing along will think less of you who couldn't deal with an ego boo boo without making a federal case out of silliness.

And what is your point? It's OK to break the law and if you get caught you blame the person who caught you breaking the law? That's not how it works. The case is a federal case because of the violation of civil rights and the recent attempt to circumvent the fair election process. It is well known that it has happened in the past, so maybe it is a good thing to make sure that it doesn't happen in the future and the persons who participated in the illegal acts are punished accordingly so they will NEVER do it again to anyone at any other time in the future. The aforementioned instance is a prime example of the corruption in Arnold.

Good point, I mean really, what is a little election tampering and bruised egos between friends. Why can Shaun take a joke? Bob Sweeney and Diane were just trying to teach him a lesson, and get his ego in check. Like he thinks he can walk into their City Hall a run for a public office without their consent? The audacity that guy had....and then, just because he could not take a joke, he goes and files a lawsuit against the City? What a poor loser.....You can't just run for public office around here. That isn't going to move the City forward. You have to have an actual commitment to wealth redistribution, litigator welfare, and Corporatism if you wanna play with the big boys.

And filing a suit in Federal Court? What, like you have a problem with the fact that Sweeney can keep control of it in the Jefferson Circuit? Come on now, who ever heard of a 42 USC 1983 claim being made in Federal Court? Come on, taking it a bit far aren't you for just a little harmless election rigging and ballot tampering? Like elections were ever "far" here to begin with. ha

How about Diane and Bob just tell you they are sorry for being mean, and we just all pretend like this never happened.....and by the way, do not file suit against those APD officers who engaged in an investigation into your background either.....we just like to vet our politicians real well here in Arnold, wasn't like they violated your rights either. They were just doing what Bob told them to do......
