Only readers of McHenry County Blog have any idea of the sleazy mailings being put out by Jack Franks allies in an attempt to defeat those who dare question Jack Franks’ efforts to have total control of County government not under independently-elected officials
Maybe the Northwest Herald doesn’t have employees who receive mailings aimed at those who have previously voted Republican.
In any event, let’s review what is coming out of Cook County from the anonymous Illinois Integrity Fund, which claims not to have spent $5,000.
I infer that claim because once a group spends $5,000, it must register with the State Board of Elections. The Illinois Integrity Fund (with a name straight out of “1984”) has not filed with the Board of Elections.
Let’s review the mailings so far.
First noticed were mailings against McHenry County Clerk candidate Joe Tirio and one against District 6 County Board candidates Ersel Schuster and Orville Brettman.
Here’s the one calling Tirio a crook:
Read the comments under the original article last Saturday to learn of the really gross representations being made.
Here is the one aimed at the candidacies of Orville Brettman and Ersel Schuster. It arrived, coincidentally, of course, with the Northwest Herald article about Schuster.
The next mailing to come to my attention was a hit piece on County Board member Chuck Wheeler, McHenry County’s only black County Board member. He is supported by the three others being attacked as being racists, but one cannot expect Jack Franks’ allies to be consistent.
It’s too much to expect hit pieces to be fair, so you’ll have to go to this story for the rebuttal, which includes the fact that Wheeler was one of only four County Board members to vote against the payment.
Of course, Tirio is one who is supporting Chuck Wheeler’s re-election, so I guess that makes him a racist.
Brettman’s last job for the Federal government put him in the position of being able to turn off the radar that the FAA uses to control planes.
Clearly someone with a lot of money (want to guess who?) doesn’t want conservatives in office.
There are ten more days until the election, so expect more attack pieces, probably based upon tomorrow’s Northwest Herald article.
