Two years ago State Rep. Jack Franks skipped the McHenry County League of Women Voters Forum.
He was running against Steve Reick.
Last night Jack Franks chickened out of his second League of Women Voters event.
One could be excused for thinking that Franks cannot bear the scrutiny that questions he himself cannot censor might provoke.
Republican opponent Mike Walkup was allowed to give a five-minute statement, but, to the dismay of many of the audience, was not allowed to answer questions.
That statement will be published in the near future.
