  1. It is interestinmg to note that on April 9th, Henry had a balance in his re-election war chest of $ 603,000. Just where did that come from – I’ll bet most from out of Allen County!! The note probably went out to all consultants and out-of-town businesses, “Get your contributions (bribes) in before April 9th, so we don’t have to report them as ‘Pre-election” contributions”. Want to bet on it??
