Jack Franks Makes Lake & McHenry County Scanner

From a story in the February 4, 2020, edition of the publication that covers local crime better than any other:

State police executed a search warrant this week at Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan’s Capitol offices as part of their investigation into sexual misconduct and other allegations against former state rep. and McHenry County Board chairman Jack Franks.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that a search warrant was obtained as “probable cause exists for the crimes of

  • criminal sexual abuse,
  • criminal sexual assault,
  • official misconduct,
  • stalking and
  • aggravated battery.”

Franks denied any wrongdoing when contacted by both the Northwest Herald and the Sun-Times. No charges have been filed by state police, who have refused to release any information on the investigation.

  1. If this were John Q Public in the same boat, would the Judge have placed a seal on the case?

    I think not, that’s why we don’t trust our Government.

    Seal the victims name, but not the case in general.

  2. Hopefully this all culminates, in his achieving his boyhood dream of being Governor.

  3. I thought I saw him floating face down in a pool of water.

    Then I flushed the toilet.

  4. So, all the rumors floating around Springfield for years about Phat Jack
    were true.

    Imagine that.

  5. Are these multiple rehashed stories designed to stimulate a pile-on of more fake accusations?

    Jack Franks is one of the best public servants McHenry Co. ever had.

    This is all the work of a great network of little people, little jealous and racist, hateful people like the Sultan of Slime, our own Cal and this Cal-ifate Hateblog.

    FYI, the allegation come from a single person, a disgruntled, lazy hate-inspired person who got terminated for trying to use State resources for personal gain.

    Franks should be applauded, and he will be when the TRUTH comes out.

    That’s why the bogus allegations were not given any credibility by the Speaker’s Office or State IG.

    When the lies have been refuted by summer, I hope profuse apologies are promulgated by this blog and the kook posters.

    But I won’t hold my breath for them!

  6. UnderwoodNow, your undies are in a wad, careful someone does not take your picture in a unflattering position, as they did with poor Katie.

    Well your comment is noted and I am sure Jack helped with the wording.

    We will make sure the victim is made aware of your knowledge.

  7. And how would you know “the allegation come from a single person, a disgruntled, lazy hate-inspired person who got terminated for trying to use State resources for personal gain?”

  8. Jack Franks is not a public servant.

    Nope!

    Jack Franks is a Public Nuisance!

  9. UnderwoodNow, the allegations were not given any credibility by the Speaker’s Office or State IG because of political connections!

  10. @ Underwearnow:

    You are either dumber than a stump or taking a page out of Lying Jack Franks playbook.

    I quote you: “That’s why the bogus allegations were not given any credibility by the Speaker’s Office”

    Really?

    That’s why the Speaker banned Lying Jack from the Capitol building without an escort?

    Really?

    that’s why the State police moved suddenly and without warning to serve their warrant, and

    why it says

    “probable cause exists for the crimes of criminal sexual abuse, criminal sexual assault, official misconduct, stalking and aggravated battery.”

    You’re as full of shit as a Christmas goose and everyone knows it.

  11. “Underwood Now” sounds more like “I’m Jack Franks using a Sock Puppet”

  12. The toilet bowl state.

    I am not a “good old boy!”

    If you are a corrupt Democrat or Republican, you better leave Illinois immediately!

    There is no tolerance for anyone in Illinois connected to the gravy train, or anyone connected to corruption in any way shape or form!
