Gotta put my 2 cents in for Jack Franks as I can’t believe he hasn’t been mentioned.
Biggest self-promoter there is in the General Assembly. \
I don’t know how that man calls himself a Democrat.
Tried to cash in on the whole pension abuse issue by sponsoring a bill to remove 2 IFT lobbyists from TRS that were allowed into TRS by legislation that he voted for.
He claims he didn’t realize the bill he voted for did that.
