With all due respect regarding the loss of his grandson, does he think anybody really believes that is the reason for leaving now?
Do Granberg, Flood, and Blago think that we (the people) are so stupid that we don’t realize the moves being made are just greedy grabs and self-serving.
Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Sam.

GRANBERG DEMOTED??

ON THE JANUARY 26TH KURT, GRANBERG UNDER THE “DIRECTOR’S CORNER” OF THE IDNR WEBSITE WAS LISTED AS “DIRECTOR KURT GRANBERG.”
TODAY HE IS LISTED AS “ACTING DIRECTOR.”
MOVEMENT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

See you later Mr Flood, best get a good lawyer, rumour is you may be in a little trouble.  Don’t worry you and Blago will look good in prison stripes.  Oh and by the way, thanks for all you did for the IDNR which amounts to nothing.
