For the integrity of the Funeral Industry in the State of Illinois please ask Charles S. Childs to resign. Childs should resign because of his inept management of the IFDA Preneed Trust. He should not be regulating funeral director licenses in the State of Illinois. This has been a conflict of interest for a long time.
“According to an IFDA-commissioned audit, the foundation that ran the museum received at least $250,000 annually in 2006 and 2007 from the association, which got more than $2 million each of those years from management fees generated by the trust fund.” Charles Childs, Jr. resign because he was the Ifda president in 2007 and a good part ofthe scandalhappened on his watch.
WHAT HAPPENED TO TWO MILLION DOLLARS WHEN HE WAS IFDA PRESIDENT????
Child’s a state official he is under investigation for preneed fraud in the IFDA Preneed Trust Ponzi Scam. He is named in three lawsuits against the IFDA,(The Class Action Complaint, The Six Funeral Directors lawsuit against the IFDA, here, and the IFDA insurers lawsuit
State of Illinois Governor Quinn, Comptroller Hynes, Michael T. McRaith , Acting Secretary of IDFPR, I am sure you will ask Charles S. Childs Jr to resign.
Just read marsellusm710′s comments from my last blog post.
“I sure wish the IL Dept of Finance and Professional Regulation had the testicular fortitude to start asking questions of the defendants named in this Lawsuit. (Ethics and such) Oh, wait a minute…I don’t think that will begin to happen just yet…I think that there is a POSSIBLE CONFLICT that a Mr. Charles Childs, Jr. who sits on and IS (YES!, I have confirmed via IDFPR website), THEE Chairman of the Funeral Directors and Embalmers Licensing and Disciplinary Board through the IDFPR.
Here is another resignation that should be asked for!!! Illinois folks call your State Representatives and Senators. Don’t think for one minute that the potential “Race Card” couldn’t be played here. Mr. Childs is of African American decent, and well connected in “The community”, in Chicago both politically and socially. Appointment to the IDFPR FD/EMB Disciplinary Bd. is by political appointment usually by the Governor. (Blago???)
Trust me, there are A.A. firms injured by the Trust.”
Charles Childs Jr. IFDA Pres.2006-2007 Charles S Childs, display more integrity than Senator Burris and Resign.

Charles S Childs Jr is a public figure because he was mentioned in the press in the original SJR article in February 2008, named in three IFDA lawsuits, an exIFDA president, and a regulator for the State of Illinois.
If someone needs to verify Mr.Childs position as a regulator during the height of the ifda ponzi scheme through today, check this out.
