From Capitol Fax:
I remember hearing Gov. George Ryan pitch a fit after he passed his Illinois FIRST plan about how then Rep. Jack Franks loudly spoke against the taxes to fund the $12 billion program but, he said, was the first guy in his office with his hand out for projects.

I find it hard to believe that Jack Franks was a duplicitous grandstander.
And this from Rich Miller:
===I find it hard to believe that Jack Franks was a duplicitous grandstander. ===
Best comment of the day.
Followed by this from Duke:
One of my favorite former Legislators always referred to Franks as “The Bloviator in Chief”.
I always thought that the terrific Ann Richards line suited him well . . . . . .”born on third base, thinks be hit a triple”.
