The Sunday before the election I was wondering where the Democrats mail was.
You may remember that McHenry County’s Democratic Party accepted some big checks ($32,400 to be precise) from a very, very liberal Chicago millionaire in mid-October and then gave most of it ($27,400) to its undoubted intended source, Jack Franks.
But, as my son used to say while he was banker in Monopoly, there was a “banker’s fee” as he took part of the money making change.
The Dems had about $25,000, once what might be called a “handling fee” and some other donations of $1,000 or more were added to the $18,000 the party had in the bank on October 1st.
That’s enough for a countywide mailing.
When reports came in about a comparison piece in McHenry County Board District 6, I figured similar pieces would soon arrive in the mail in the other five County Board districts.
I got reports one had been seen in District 3, but not in other parts of the county.
But I found the copy on an obscure web site and will share the County Board sides with you over the next five days.
Here’s what was prepared for District 1:
Here are the vote totals in District 1:
