From 14th District Republican congressional candidate:
Below is a statement from Jim Oberweis on the recent news concerning Jack Franks.
“McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks needs to step down immediately.
“The allegations made in the recent Sun Times article are reprehensible and are inexcusable.
“It appears as though Mr. Franks and House Speaker Michael Madigan were complicit in a coverup to protect their power, while further damaging the ability of women to come forward to bring to light the abuses suffered at the hands of those who were elected to represent and protect all of our families.
“My sympathies go out to the victims of his alleged terrible behavior.”
