No Comments Under Northwest Herald Article Linking Jack Franks to Joe Tirio Smear Mailings

Jack Franks must be happy that people cannot comment about his role in the Joe Tirio hit pieces.

Not being a subscriber to the Northwest Herald, but still interested in what comments people might be making to the revelation that former Jack Franks’ campaign manager Mike Noonan was deeply involved in the hate mail that filled mailboxes during Joe Tirio’s Primary Election campaign, I reached out to someone with access.

The reply I received was,

They currently show zero comments.

Strange, since on McHenry County Blog’s first article, there are 32 comments as this is posted, and on the second article–giving more detail–there are 11 comments.

No Comments Under Northwest Herald Article Linking Jack Franks to Joe Tirio Smear Mailings — 9 Comments

  1. You have to have a Facebook account to comment on that newspaper’s web site. I understand that some years ago, the newspaper did allow comments without having to have a Facebook account. I have talked to many people who are reluctant to get a Facebook account and maybe that’s why there are no comments so far at the newspaper’s web site.

  2. I have a Facebook account and I commented but it never appeared the Northwest Herald is nothing but fake news.

  3. Well let’s be fair, they’re reporting on this and seemingly without bias.

    They even found and published a damning picture of Franks working with the other two parties involved.

    Let’s hope their love affair with poser Franks is over now that his mask has slipped.

  4. NW Herald is just going to do what sells them papers.

    Attacking Franks, who has long been a popular figure, would not financially benefit them in the past.

    Now that they actually have a scandal involving CHICAGO Dems (who are unpopular in McHenry County) they’ve decided to run with it.

    If there weren’t such a clear connection between the integrity fund, Franks, and the Madigans, there’s no way this would have been a front page article that got a follow-up the next day.

    Still waiting to see whether the progressives within McDems are going to turn on Franks (he’s not exactly a progressive to begin with) or if they’re going to be ordered to be silent.

    Their party’s county chairman is a big-wig for state Dem politics and Franks might be a sugar daddy for some of these local Dems.

    But if you attack him over his position on school spending and ICE, why not for dark money and ties to the Democratic Machine of Illinois that has stymied progressive candidates and causes and has been the national posterboy for corruption?

  5. Franks is the McHenry County and Democratic version of Donald Trump.

    All lies and con jobs.

    No ideology or principles beyond himself.

    Authoritarian bully.

    He actually used to like that comparison.

    Maybe now not so much.

  6. I agree, last time he ran he had goons standing in front of polls pushing for your vote.

    They stood right by the sign forbidding campaigning and block your way till you’d take their propaganda.

    A Wolf in Sheep’s clothing.

  7. **I agree, last time he ran he had goons standing in front of polls pushing for your vote.

    LOL. You mean they stood outside the cone that says you can’t campaign inside the cone? And they handed you campaign lit? Oh how dare they!

  8. His goons often push the limits and break the rules.

    If they didn’t leave people alone, that’s not only electioneering, that’s harassment, abuse.

    I’d say that sounds about right!
