Ethics Complaints Against Michael, Richards Set to Proceed

An ethics complaint accusing County Clerk Kathy Michael of alleged misconduct will be forwarded to the state's attorney for review, according to a decision Monday by the McLean County Ethics Commission.  The accusations allege Michael used a county-owned laptop computer for campaign activities and then intentionally damaged the computer to destroy evidence of alleged misconduct. Michael's case could be handled by a special prosecuter. Meanwhile, the City of Bloomington is following up on a request for an ethics hearing against Michael's Democratic opponent and city employee, Nikita Richards, for allegedly using a city-owned laptop computer for shopping and campaign activities. An outside attorney, John Redlingshafer, will investigate the complaints against Richards
