Something that has not been seen before happened to the McHenry County Democratic Party recently.
It started out October with $18,691.03 in the bank.
On October 12th, $10,800 came from Chicago uber-liberal Fred Eychane.
On October 17th. the Dems got another $21,600 from that man’s company, Newsweb Corp.
There were also two other relatively piddly contributions:
- $1,500 – Illinois Democratic County Chairman Association
- $1,176.50 – Illinois Democratic County Chairman Association
So, what did the County Dems do with the $32,400 in cash?
Did any go to the Democratic Party’s State’s Attorney candidate, Ray Flavin?
None that I see.
Was it sent to County Board candidates?
Not that I can find, but there could still be a countywide mailing financed with cash on hand at the beginning of the quarter and some of the Eychane money.
However, $27,400 went to Jack Franks’ campaign fund yesterday.
Eychane also gave Franks $5,400 directly on October 17th.
His Newsweb Corp also contributed $10,800 to Franks on October 17th.
