Lawlor? Lawlor? Lawlor?

Good news everyone: your LakeCountyEye is gainfully employed again. And toils away at Lake County's dirtiest job -- publicist for Aaron Lawlor.

Indefatigable up-and-comer -- and not to mention Lake County Board Chair -- Aaron Lawlor was last seen on this blog ...
Scoop the Poop
doing what public servants do best. Lawlor was observed shoveling excrement, all the while smiling for the cameras.

Haha, Lawlor is the star of the Internet's hottest viral video series, Lake County’s Dirty Jobs. Funded by the taxpayers of Lake County, the video series is supposed to shine a spotlight on some of the dirty jobs performed by County government. Well, whatever it is supposed to be, the first two episodes feature some professional-grade camerawork, editing, scripting, audio overlay -- not to mention bravura performances by Lake County Board Chair, Aaron Lawlor.

The News-Sun took notice and gave the shows the moral equivalent of two thumbs up:
The first jump-out-of-your-skin moment comes 30 seconds into Part I, when a protagonist reports that "one of our pumps is plugged – or partially plugged." The suspense about who gets to do the unplugging – and how it will be done – recalls Clarice Starling walking to her first meeting with Hannibal Lecter.

Now your LakeCountyEye doesn't want to sound ungrateful, but that "protagonist" referred to by the News-Sun happens to be Lake County Board Chair, Aaron Lawlor. Who just happens to be speaking to the cameras in just about every scene of Lake County's Dirtiest Jobs.

So how often is Mr Lawlor mentioned in the News-Sun review? As often as zero -- nada -- by your LakeCountyEye's count. Aaron Lawlor's name is not mentioned once in the Sun-Times review. Skeptical Operatives can check for themselves:
Despite the fact that Aaron Lawlor gets at least 10 minutes of camera time in Lake County's Dirtiest Jobs, the News-Sun totally neglects to print his name anywhere in their review. Your LakeCountyEye really, really wonders if anyone is even watching these must-see videos.

For the record, it is spelled: A-A-R-O-N  L-A-W-L-O-R
