From Patch on May 4, 2021
Former State Rep. Jack Franks, most recently not in the news when the local bank group he heads merged with Joliet’s First Secure Bank Group, is one of four retired Illinois legislators in an article in Patch.
Here’s the part about Franks:
Jack Franks, 57, was a member of the Illinois House from 1999 to 2017 and McHenry Country Board chairman from 2017 to 2020.
In January 2020, the Marengo Democrat was named on a search warrant executed by Illinois State Police at former House Speaker Mike Madigan’s office in the Capitol.
Madigan’s spokesperson said the investigation dates back to a November 2018 complaint of harassment filed by an employee of the speaker’s office.
