An All Poynton Bulletin

As even readers of this blog must know by now, Lake County held an election last month. What they might not know is that Lake Zurich has a new Village President: Tom Poynton.

Poynton won, your LakeCountyEye has been told, with the help of a catchy campaign slogan:

Get Lake Zurich "POYNTON" in the Right Direction
Elect TOM POYNTON Lake Zurich Village President (Mayor)
Poynton's campaign website posts his contact information, including his e-mail address:
So when an operative received an urgent message from Poynton's e-mail address, they were naturally concerned:
From: Tom Poynton []

     My flight leaves in 2hours from now and i am having a problem settling my hotel bills,please i need you to help me with (1,700.00 Dollars) to foot my bills and board a plane back to the state because right now i am stranded and you are my only hope to get out of this mess.When i get back to the state i will refund you every dime that you've spent if possible with interest...Write me back so i can tell you how to get the money to my present location.

Now who can say they've never been attacked and beaten by thugs while vacationing in Manila -- and rendered so indisposed as to be incapable of communicating except in a pidgin English, delivered for comical effect? Certainly not your LakeCountyEye.

Note to ops: Before hitting the reply button, check the return e-mail address. It probably will not say ...
You're better advised to wire the 1,700.00 Dollars to Poynton's campaign PAC instead: Committee to Elect Tom Poynton LZ
