Just happened to look at the campaign disclosure page of unopposed Democrat State Rep. Jack Franks and found that the Chicago Teachers Union has donated $1,500.
It may just be coincidence that Franks got such a large contribution from Chicago in a race contested merely by a write-in candidate, but I can’t help remembering that when State Senator James Meeks had a voucher bill that would save state taxpayers $240 million.
Franks voted against it.
The CTU is not a new supporter for Franks, as you can see here.
Why would someone in McHenry County vote against the possibility that mainly black and Latino teens in Chicago might finally be able to get decent educations?
Do Franks’ liberal supporters really know how reactionary he is on helping poor minorities?
