The McHenry County Board has approved spending another $100,000 for special prosecutors and consultants. It is thought that the majority of this money relates to the investigation and the prosecution of McHenry County State's Attorney Louis Bianchi. Bianchi was indicted by a grand jury earlier this week for using county resources to do campaign work. When the investigation of Bianchi started, it was estimated that it would cost about $100,000. Up until now, special prosecutors and consultants have submitted $74,306 in invoices. There's another invoice for $34,321 for work performed from September of 2009 to February of this year. The additional money that has been appropriated will cover future additional expenses and any unforeseen costs and expenses.
