Below are the letters solicited by State Rep. Jack Franks in support of allowing his law firm’s client, Mercy Health System, to build a hospital in Crystal Lake. They were placed into evidence by the attorney of Rod Blagojevich fund raiser Tony Rezko.
Only the last–the one from the Illinois Revenue Department Director–mentions that Franks is a state representative.
From personal experience, I can tell you that department directors return phone calls from legislators.
