While walking my precinct this past week, I’ve found plenty of people who see through the deceptive campaigning of Democratic Party candidate for McHenry County Board Chairman Lying Jack Franks.
But his campaign sent out another email asking for people to urge their “Friends and Family” to support him.
This is an idea used by Lisa Madigan in her 2002 campaign for Illinois Attorney General.
However her’s was lower tech, I suspect.
Just in case you did not notice the relatively small promised to cut our property tax bills by 10%, I have enlarged it below:
Of course, Franks would have no ability to cut any taxes without support of a majority of the McHenry County Board, most of whom will be Republicans.
If elected, he will not even have a vote on the County Board.
That’s not even pointing out that county government’s share of our total tax bills is about 10%.
How he he will fulfill his fantasy to cut our total tax bills by 10% remains unexplained.
Like a lot of what one sees in Disney World at Fantasy Lane.
If Franks would change his logo to “Cut Property Taxes NOW 1%,” he would rise on the campaign integrity scale.
No longer would he be a Four Pinocchios guy.
