Typically former State Rep. and McHenry County Board Chairman files his Illinois State Board of Elections quarterly report at the last minute.
There is no reason to believe he will file earlier this month.
However, checking to see if he had broken that pattern revealed something interesting.
Stating that he was returning campaign contributions, Franks reported taking
- $200,000 out of the 1st National Bank Of Omaha
- $200,000 out of Prairie Community Bank in Union, Illinois
That was reported on New Year’s Eve, the last day of December.
The identities of the individuals receiving the returned donations will be revealed in Franks’ quarterly report.
