Also with that many members on Arpaio team we should be able to crack down on the illegals quicker.Hopefully the illegals heard about this news and are starting to walk back to the rio grande river and into their garbage land! GET OUT!

Since 2001, illegal aliens in Texas "have qualified for in-state tuition, which offers them a generous discount compared to out-of-state students." The Texas A&M student Senate APPROVED a bill that would END this policy. The Student Body President, however, vetoed it. In-state tuition for illegals MUST END; it raises tuition prices for U.S. students & raises taxes for ALL. PUT AMERICANS FIRST!

About the NIGHTMARE Act, Rep. Steve King says, "I don't think Harry Reid nor Nancy Pelosi or even Barack Obama understands that the American people have said 'no.' They repudiated the 111th Congress; [the Congressional Democrats] are no longer the legitimized representatives of the American people."

Steve King? Really? You couldn't quote a stupider, more ill-informed, racist in the United States Congress. The quickest way to find out if something is not true is look to see if Steve King said it first. If he did you can bet it's 100% BS. He would deport his own grandmother if it would help get him in front of a microphone.

Lawmakers in Georgia are considering anti-immigration legislation similar to Arizona's SB1070 as well as a piece of legislation that would ban illegal aliens from attending ALL of Georgia's public colleges & universities. You have our support!!

I don't need to identify myself-what good would that do? Put myself and my children in jeopardy of retribution from his gang? You'd love to see that because that's how they operate: Identify the threat and use any and all means necessary to eliminate it...morals be dam ned.
You sound you're pretty close to the family like I am, but we are just on different sides. I choose to stand for what is ethical and you enjoy the culture of benefitting from their power. We need less people like Pete Piazza and more people like Paul Kaupas.
As one of the previous posters wrote, all of us who know the family can attest to the truth of that timeline. The Piazzas have done nothing to hide their true motivations. Especially after a few beers.
I wonder what happened to Greg Piazza?! Is he a charged criminal for harassing a disabled Vet in Cook County? The word I heard is...YEP!!! See Disabled doesn't mean invalid, since I handed him his ass legally (for corruption), I'd dare him to come physically get his dignity back...TRIPLE DOG DARE!

Kaupas put his cousin in a 70k position that is not even necessary. This of course is done post election. Apparently Kaupas does not know hot to speak. He needs his cousin to handle the media. Please........I thought this was will county not crook county. No patranage ever, stop creating positions for family. I don't care if they claim they have not seen each other forever.

No one ever claimed that they did not see each other forever. When they were younger yes they didn't.
Ken Kaupas is a retired Capt. from the State police. Paul put him there to replace Pat Barry who retired after the election. He is paid a lot less then Pat Barry. Paul Kaupas has never created a position for any family member. Ken is the only family Paul has ever hired. His daughters were hired after they graduated by another Sheriff, long before Paul even thought about being Sheriff.

As far as talking to the media. Why should he??? They were not very nice during the election to him. Remember he wouldn't let them in the V.F.W. the night of the election. He can trust Ken and thats why he did it. Plus he had the experience from being a Captain on the State Police.
The election is over. He won and he will save money where he can and put people that he trusts aound him.
Quit with the comments about him not knowing how to speak. He has spoken at many functions and towns by people who request him to do it.
May I add he has never prepared a speach because he speaks from his experiences. He is a good guy and I wish everyone could move on.

Correction, I am saying a person to handle the media for will county is not necessary. If he really wanted to impress us he would have let the person retire from the position and not replace him that saves money, no healthcare, no IMRF. I despise when people are put in political positions because the elected official can "trust" them. To me that simply means keep the mouth shut when required. This relative may be qualified as a police officer but he is not a media expert. Lets keep that straight. Any time any political official puts a member of their family in a position it looks bad. I do not care who you are and what the qualifications are. If this is such an important position their had to be another person not related to him that qualified. I am sure there are plenty of captains that would have loved that job. Did you really say the media was not very nice to him? He is a politician suck it up and move on. You work for the people of will county, not just the ones that are "nice" to you all of them.

One more thing, did know his daughters worked there too. Not one but two? I read your claim that their Father had nothing to do with this either. Thanks for the info that the daughters also enjoy the taxpayers dime. Perhaps we will call this Kaups county instead of will.

Hey Deputy, Get a live! Kaupas County would be fine with me. The daughters were hired when they were 18. One is 36 now and the other 33. Give me a break. One married a Will County sheriff after working there. So there is a son in law too. Big scandle!!!!!

The elections over. Get over it!!!
Maybe Ken Kaupas will run for Sheriff!!! I think he would be GREAT!!
P.S. The daughters work and do a DAMN GOOD JOB. Everyone who works on the department is on the Tax Payers dime.
Plus the Sheriff Salary has been frozen for almost 3 years and will remain that way for the next 4.
He lives with in his budget.

One more thing.

People have retired and he has not replaced them. Many more are retiring also.
The Sheriff and all county elected officials have had their budgets cut.
Kaupas is the Sheriff and makes the decissions what is best for the department. It is over now. Move on.
If you don't like Kaupas O.K., but he has 4 more years. I believe he will continue to do his best.
