Franks Reports $1.3 Million Available

$1,304,382.79 is invested Certificates of Deposit in local banks.

$28,579.93 is presumably in a checking account.

He spent $505,000 over the last six months of 2009. But $400,000 of that doesn’t really count, because it was going into a CD at the First National Bank of Marengo.

So, in reality about $105,000 was spent during the time of the quest.

Much of that time he was trying to position himself to run for governor.

Lots on paying staff and buying meals.

And, $9,000 to McKoen & Associates of Joliet on July 30th.

Guess the results weren’t as favorable as hoped.

One item popped out. $2,889 to Celtic Tours.

I guess it was campaign related. Franks went to Ireland with House Speaker Mike Madigan, Senate President John Cullerton and State Rep. Dan Burke (all D-Chicago). This is probably where the idea of Franks running for Congress after reapportionment came up.
