State Rep. Jack Franks continues to snow Springfield reporters.
Below you see a tweet from Springfield-based Amanda Vinicky of WUIS-FM. the Public Radio station in the State Capital.
Note that the reporter says that Franks “is stepping down.”
That’s what he apparently told every reporter who was not in the room on Sunday morning, May 15th.
At least that’s what they have written.
The problem is that it’s been a month and a half since Franks appeared to call it quits in Springfield, but he’s still on the ballot for State Rep., running for his tenth term–seven more than he promised in 1998 during his first campaign.
And he is also on the ballot for McHenry County Board Chairman.
“Franks qualified that saying he’d give up the Rep. race if the Committee can pick another candidate who’s both ‘electable’ and holds a political outlook consistent with his own.”
Guess Franks has not found someone “electable” yet.
