A Sauer Note

Although it probably pains him to hear this, there is no truth to the rumor that the Lake County Sheriff is putting up wanted posters of Nick Sauer.

The Lake County State's Attorney, however, does have Sauer under investigation:
Lake County prosecutors have launched an investigation into accusations that former state Rep. Nick Sauer posted nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on Instagram.

While Sauer has resigned from the Illinois General Assembly, his name remains on the November election ballot. One knowledgeable source says Sauer got stampeded into resigning and may not withdraw from the ballot: "I can see a lot of downside for Nick Sauer to withdraw but not a lot of upside. Suppose he stays on the ballot and leaves his fate to the voters. What is the worst that can happen? Sauer loses. But what if he wins? Sauer goes back to Springfield saying the voters exonerated him."

Note to Ops: In the court of public opinion the decision of the judges are final.
