Jack Franks on same list as institutionalized killer –


Springfield, IL. (ECWd) – A few weeks ago, thru reporting on a search warrant into past actions of Jack Franks, it was revealed that Speaker Madigan “requested” Franks be prohibited from the State Capitol building without escort.

We have confirmed as factual, thru a Freedom of Information Act request to the Secretary of State, that former State Representative and current McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks was placed on the list on March 19, 2019 and is among those on the list who are prohibited from entering the Capitol without an escort.

Others on the list of 60 people, include Derek Potts, the killer of Capitol Police Officer Wozniak, who was ordered by a Judge to spend the rest of his life in a mental institution, but since has been released to a non-secure intermediate care nursing home in Chicago.

According to the SOS Police:

“The attached list has been compiled in response to your recent FOIA request for the “names of all people prohibited from entering the Capitol without escort and/or supervision within the past 5 years.”

Please note that the individuals on this list were not banned from the capitol complex. 

However, they would only be allowed access to the complex if they were escorted by or under surveillance of law enforcement officers.  

The Senate side of the Illinois State Capitol.

Access to the capitol complex may be restricted for a number of reasons, including:

  • threatening comments or behavior directed at state officials or employees;
  • inappropriate communications with a state official;
  • inappropriate or suspicious behavior on the capitol complex;
  • as required by an order of protection;
  • conduct related to discharge from State employment;
  • found in a restricted area of the capitol complex;
  • threats of damage to property located on the complex;
  • release from a secure State psychiatric hospital to which the individual had be committed pursuant to a finding of not guilty by reason of insanity for a crime of violence on the capitol complex.”

  1. Hilarious. Jack Franks: Our own Ozymandius

    A homage to P.B Shelley

    I met a traveller from an antique land,
    Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand east of Woodstock Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the fangs that fed;
    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    My name is Franksymandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and rotting detritus stretch far away.”

  2. Franks killed his political career.

    Great things come from such tragic circumstances…lol

  3. “I did nothing wrong” ….Jack

    ” I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”…. Bill

  4. Arnie is taking Jack to the wood shed now for ruiening the family name, “no more allowance Jack, go to your room and no girlfriends up there either!”

  5. In Franks’ twisted mind, filled with dual ethics imperatives (one for the group he adheres to, another for his relations with everybody else), he is telling his truth!

    Some may call that Jesuitical, I call it Talmudic.

  6. Does McHenry County’s have its very own Harvey Weinstein? LMAO

  7. At least Weinstein came through with his promises if the victims put out.
