Andy Berg (D) Kenosha County Board Member (Photo Facebook)

We told you about Kenosha County Board Member Andrew (Andy) Berg not paying his taxes for years. We told you about his criminal record and scandals. We also told you about him allegedly using assets donated to his non-profit for personal financial gain. We also told you about a local veteran and contractor who is suing Berg for allegedly ripping him off for more than $5,000. He has been embattled in one way or another for years.

Berg was ordered to respond to the lawsuit by a Kenosha Court Commissioner. In Berg’s response, he admitted to having a large amount of work done to his home. Work that is important to have done correctly and safely. That is why it all required building permits. Berg didn’t bother to get any of them. He can’t plead ignorance here. On his Facebook page, he has called out other politicians for allegedly skipping out on permits. He knows that they are required to alter the upstairs layout of his home by moving walls and replacing all of the electrical upstairs. He did it anyway.

Investigation

After reading these court records, the city started an investigation.

The City inspector made contact with Berg who agreed to let him in the house and inspect the work on June 21, 2021. The inspector identified all of the work that was done without permits, including the moving of the walls and changing all of the electrical wires and outlets. Ironically, all of the drywall work that was done by the veteran who says he wasn’t paid, had to be removed to expose the wires for inspection, costing Berg perhaps many hundreds or thousands of dollars. Berg had to buy permits for the work and he was fined three times the amount of the cost. The total amount of the fines was $720. He now has to have inspections to make sure all of the work was done according to code.

We previously reported that Berg had lost the lawsuit. Part-time court commissioner Bob Kupfer issued a default ruling against Berg for not providing a timely response to the suit. Kupfer apparently didn’t read the court record carefully enough and recklessly entered an inaccurate judgement.

Berg is due in court on September 30, 2021 at 1:30pm for a court trial that is open to the public.

  1. So the last 3 stories from KCE are from the activists in Kenosha, breaking the law, and harassment. Yet they all scream for justice and police the police? Who is going to police them? They are all quick to try and get others fired, and harass them on social media, but they can do what they want when they want? When are people going to open their eyes to what is being preached to what is being done? HYPOCRITES

    1. In all seriousness….none of the three have any power in this city. They are nobodies. They are all broke fucks and let’s be honest….if you don’t have any money, you don’t REALLY have any power with anyone who matters. Do any of these three even work?

      If they had any power, they wouldn’t be getting nailed time and time again in court for various things.
