  1. This is why he didn’t spend more money on his last Chairman’s race.

    He was given that money just to scare off potential opponents and wasn’t allowed to spend it on himself.

    When the investigation into his sexual predation was revealed, he could no longer raise the cash from his state sources so he had to make do with about $50K.

  2. Cal, is there a record of their donations to his campaign or could this be a family reunion picnic surprise party?

  3. Boo Hoo, Jack Franks is D-O-N-E !!!

    Now he can continue his stalking in peace in FL or NYC or Tel Aviv.
