Letter Writer Points to Jack Franks as a Hillary Clinton Delegate

The following letter by Chris Lawrence to the Northwest Herald is published with permission of the writer:

Franks serves Chicago elite

Jack Franks is a super-delegate for Hillary Clinton who attracts rich Chicago and Cook County lawyers and politicians to fund his McHenry County race.

Jack Franks

Jack Franks

A career politician who claimed he would retain his representative seat against a popular opponent, Franks cannot solicit enough cash from his actual constituents to sustain his expensive and extravagant campaign.

A $1,000 (minimum) per plate fundraiser Sept. 7 in Oak Brook should sound off alarms.

Who will Jack Franks represent as McHenry County chairman?

McHenry County residents who cannot afford his luxurious fundraisers nor donate to his campaign?

No.

Jack Franks will succumb even further to the Chicago political machine and the corruption, cronyism and fraud that are synonymous to that type of campaign fundraising.

Michael Walkup is not bought and paid for by the rich, Chicago elite.

Walkup understands his middle class constituents and will best represent us as County Chair.

This letter to the Northwest Herald is probably the first time its readers have been informed that Jack Franks was a Democratic Party National Convention Delegate both this year and in 2008, the year Barack Obama first won.

  1. “This letter to the Northwest Herald is probably the first time its readers have been informed that Jack Franks was a Democratic Party National Convention Delegate both this year and in 2008, the year Barack Obama first won.”

    If the reader was in a coma since the beginning of the 1990s, perhaps.

    What tool did the author use to obliterate any trace of the critical thinking skills necessary to read through that paragraph and not marvel at the cluelessness and stupidity embedded within?

    Remarkable.

    Speaking of critical thinking skills- there’s a clown standing at every intersection of your neighborhood. Just standing there.

    The good thing about clowns- it has become clear that self-identified Trump voters react to clowns in the same manner that chimpanzees react to images of snakes on a television screen.

    We know how to herd you onto the FEMA trucks for delivery to the Arizona incinerators now- just put a clown on a leash in the middle of a corral- just like flies to shit.

  2. “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I’ve ever heard.

    “At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought.

    “Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

    “I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!”

  3. ** Franks cannot solicit enough cash from his actual constituents to sustain his expensive and extravagant campaign.**

    Oh come on… is Mr. Lawrence going to say the same about Steve Reick, who is getting almost 100% of his support from HRO, which gets (almost?) no money from Reick’s district?

    What about Allen Skillicorn and his $500k from Dan Proft/Rauner/Uhlein that came from out the district, and the majority of his actual contributions (other than from himself) coming from outside the district?

    And oh yea – and 80% of the money reported raised by Walkup comes from an individual that lives in Lake County.

    So yea – lets go with the argument that Franks receives money from people that are no his constituents.

    I have no love for Franks.

    But this is frankly an absurd argument.

    Franks has raised more money from people inside McHenry County than Walkup has this year – in fact, 3 times as much from my quick calculations.

    McHenry County chair race is a county race.

    The Rep races are state races.

    To lump them into the same category only fits your narrative.

    As for the Lake County donors of Walkup’s, those donors own a business in McHenry County.

    You cannot say the same about the lawyers and Chicago elite Franks panders to.

  5. And the individual employees thousands of people that live in this county and is a philanthropist in this county.

    They’re childish whining about that contributor while looking the other way while their boy gets Madigan mafia money is straight out of Rules for Radicals.

    “Point and scream that your opponent is doing exactly the crime that you’re committing.”

    What a bunch of low-lifes.

    Like we didn’t know Franks was a smarmy politician already.

  6. Where’s St. Patrick when you need him to get rid of AlabamaSnakes?

  7. OldManWinter – AlabamaSnake is one of Allen Skillicorn’s screen names on this blog.

    Easiest way to get rid of him is voting for Nancy Zettler.
