I don’t know how an Illinois State Representative gets listed on Congress.org, but Democrat Jack Franks managed it.

It says he is a 7th term Democrat.

Well, that’s right, but not in Congress.

Here’s what brought the web site to my attention:

"Congressman" Jack Franks

  1. Hey Jack, it’s called the Illinois Assembly not Congress.

    Stop phoning your legal clients while “at work” in Springfield and take time to pay attention!

  2. Sen. Althoff and Rep. Tryon managed to get listed on Congress.org too. All are listed as State legislators. All are shown for this same letter.

    From the congress.org website:

  3. Cal…take off the bias blinders. ALL the local reps are listed. Sen Althoff and Rep. Tryon are both there but did they get a eyes closed blink from you?

  4. I don’t know how an Illinois State Representative gets listed on Congress.org, but Repub Mike Tryon and Repub Pam Althoff managed it…
