There was a second 2017 hit piece aimed at critics of McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks.
It was directed against District 2 incumbent Republicans Donna Kurtz and Jim Heisler.
Below is most of the article about it:
Covering the area around the old Aldi’s in Crystal Lake (Algonquin Township Precinct 2) were crude leaflets attacking McHenry County Board members Donna Kurtz and Jim Heisler.
Notice the attempt to make people think it comes from conservative Republicans.
The no-way-to-contact committee is called “Drain Swamp – McHenry County.”
Now, if the committee could be contacted, I think I see a copyright violation.
That surely looks like a 2012 photo I took of Donna Kurtz.
What do you think?
These anonymous attackers can keep their identity secret until they spend $5,000, which they never do.
This technique first popped up in 2010 when John O’Neill had the audacity to run as a Republican against State Rep. Jack Franks.
You can read the 2010 negative piece on O’Neil here.
Neither Heisler nor Kurtz ran for re-election.
