One Percenters Jack Franks, JB Pritzker Unite

Here’s what popped up on my screen this morning:

McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks endorses JB Pritzker for governor

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks has made his pick for Illinois governor: J.B. Pritzker. During a 45-minute meeting Friday with the Northwest Herald editorial board, the Democratic candidate for governor sat next to the first popularly elected Democratic County Board …

Jack Franks is trying another public endorsement (as opposed to his friend’s hit pieces against Republicans he does not want elected).

He is endorsing JB Pritzker, the man who has contributed $72,150 to Franks’ current campaign committee since 2006.

The latest contribution was November 17, 2016.


This endorsement tidbit of political information was revealed last June 29th on McHenry Count Blog in the article “One Percenters J.B. & M.K. Pritzker Give Another $5,000 to One Percenter Jack Franks.”

There are other candidates Franks has endorsed.

One that comes to mind is Hillary Clinton.

Both in 2008 and 2016.

However, in 2015, Bernie Sanders carried the day in McHenry County.

I tried to look up the final results on the McHenry County Clerk’s web site, but it was down at 7:15 Saturday morning.

Mary McClellan’s McHenry County Clerk’s web site was down at 7:15 Saturday morning.

The Sanders people are now supporting Daniel Biss.

It will be interesting to see how much weight that Jack Franks’ endorsement carries.

Somehow I don’t expect there will be a story about that subject in the Northwest Herald if Biss carries McHenry County.

  1. Leftists of a feather flock together.
    It’s all about the tribe, after all.

  2. The chairman introduced Obama to McHenry County Democrats back in 2007. Bad judgement there in supporting what turned out to be the worst ever president of the U.S. Did the chairman also support and/or endorse Blago who now sits in prison?

  3. I thought MAGA was about outlawing shredded cheese and making America grate again.

  4. Jack Franks was a Hillary Clinton Delegate inthe both 2008 and 2016.

  5. Based on signage I still see while driving around the County, (Bernie signs), I would not be surprised to see Biss do quite well in this County.

  6. I guess Cal hates wealth now?

    “One-Percenter” is a term used by leftists …

  7. Satire? What is funny, ironic, exaggerative or ridiculing Jack Franks in this post?

    Maybe you are ridiculing him because of his success, hence me calling you out for a leftist term….

  8. So the chairman was a Hillary delegate in 2008 and 2016. He could be excused in 2008 but not 2016 when everyone knew about her dangerous incompetence and gross negligence in mishandling secret, top secret and top top secret information in emails, on unprotected servers and handheld devices. The director of the bureau laid it all out on national tv Jul 5, 2016 which was before the Democrat convention. Lock her up.

  9. Great humor Steve

    We need more of this and less trashing people’s personal lives
