CAHOKIA, Il ( KMOV.com )-- The leader of a Metro East community is accused of using his city’s police force to intimidate voters and influence the outcome of an election.


18-year-old students at Cahokia High School say the mayor sent his officers to try to sway their vote at the polls.

The mayor categorically denies the accusations, but some students and employees at Cahokia High School say the supporters of the county board candidate backed by the mayor tried to influence their decision when they did early voting this week.

Then that the mayor and police chief of Cahokia gave them the third degree about how they voted. If there’s any truth to the accusation, there could be violations of state and federal laws.

News 4 spoke with the St. Clair County State’s Attorney who couldn’t comment, but did say his office and the U.S Attorney’s Office will be aggressively investigating allegations of intimidation and voter fraud. One of the school employees said he’ll file a complaint in the next few days.

The people who support the non nominated and third party canidate Curtis McCall Jr ILLEGALLY used tax payer funded buses and school time to transport students to the county to vote
for Sprague's and Bergman's oreo proxy. Police were there at the behest of several tax paying citizens and employees who saw this happening. It is ok to register to vote at the school. But the 18 year old students can either vote at regular voting places on election (seversl w/in short walking distance of the school), just like the rest of us tax paying kcitizens who find the time to vote. These 18 year old students do not deserve any special transportation at my expense. Cut it out, McCall, your're going to get Falling Frank and "Buy Me" Sprague back in Cahokia tp rob us again.

Read the Illinois STATE LAW on the Subject of Field Trips while in School & what is in Cahokia School District's on hand book. Tisk Tisk, well hell some people learn something new every day.

http://illinois.webschoolpro.com/cahokia-high...

State law requires that all people having close contact with students in schools must have verification of having passed a "TB test"(I wonder if the volunteers did this???) Please register the results of your TB test in the school office. Without this, you will not be allowed to provide parent volunteer service in the classroom.

Field trips are planned by teachers and designed to enrich the curriculum. A note and permission slip will be sent to you in advance of any field trip and will include cost, place, departure time and dress. The permission slip must be signed and returned to your child's teacher in order for the student to participate in the field trip.

Parents are frequently asked to chaperone field trips, and teachers rely on these parents to provide supervision for a group of students. While field trips are always fun for the students, they are intended to be extensions of the classroom curriculum and are learning activities. This is the parents' opportunity to participate with his/her child in an educational activity and to assist the classroom teacher. Unless it is specifically a family activity, we request that parents not bring other siblings along on field trips. Take this opportunity to give special attention to your child and play a crucial role in making this an important learning activity for the children in the class. The teacher is depending upon your undivided attention.

Hell Frank Bergman didn't have one either & was hired by the county board on his "Merit". What F'ing merit, that fat bleach blond cheeseburger eating SOB has never earned anything in his life let alone having any merit.
