Despite having made a countywide and two County Board District mailings a new Political Action Committee calling itself “Illinois Integrity Fund” still has not filed its existence with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
A post card attacking District 4 McHenry County Board member Chuck Wheeler is the latest to make my inbox.
Wheeler is one of a minority of McHenry County Board Republicans who has not rolled over and played dead for Democratic Party Chairman Jack Franks.
The mailing can be seen below:
The accurate part of the mailing is that he attended the meeting in question.
The false part of the mailing is that he voted against paying Local 150 of the Operating Engineers the $25,000.
Read this article and you’ll see that.
Here’s the relevant part:
Those voting against the resolution [ to pay the $25,000] were
- Diane Evertsen
- Andrew Gasser
- Mike Skala
- Chuck Wheeler
Consistency, of course, is not necessary when Jack Franks’ friends are mounting a political attack on Jack Franks’ critics.
If it were, the same mailing would attack District 6 Franks’ favorites Michele Aavang and Larry Smith, both of whom voted to pay the union the $25,000.
Those attending Governor Bruce Rauner’s press conference on his Turnaround Agenda were
- Yvonne Barnes (District 1)
- James L. “Jim” Heisler (District 2)
- Chairman Joseph Gottemoller (District 3)
- Nick Provenzano (District 3)
- Charles “Chuck” Wheeler (District 4)
- Tina Hill (District 5)
- Michele Aavang (District 6)
- Larry W. Smith (District 6)
- Jack Franks (State Rep.)
