In 2009, State Rep. Jack Franks wanted to become Governor.
To get “mentioned,” his family poured in hundreds of thousands of dollars.
$1.2 million of the $1.3 million or 90% of the money Franks is using to gain a place on the statewide ticket comes from just six contributors. All but one are relatives, I have been told.
What his father conributed was returned earlier.
On December 31, 2020, Franks wrote checks to the following:
- $200,000 to Deborah Franks
- $200,000 to Eileen Franks
His wife Deborah Franks filed for divorce August 17, 2020.
