SPRINGFIELD, IL. (ECWd) -
According to the search warrant obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, the Illinois State Police justified a search warrant referencing Jack Franks by stating that "probable cause exists for the crimes of criminal sexual abuse, criminal sexual assault, official misconduct, stalking and aggravated battery."
Maybe Kirk Allen's comments about Jack Franks back on Sep 19, 2017 were somewhat prophetic when he stated to Franks during a McHenry County Board meeting that "You sir, are the most evil kind of political servant I've ever experienced." Watch the video, starting at the 3:43 mark, below.
I guess time will tell...
The Sun-Times reports that the search warrants were served on Speaker Madigan's office this past week and were searching for records related to Franks.
What no one apparently knew, until the Sun-Time reported it, was that Speaker Madigan had asked in February of 2019 that the Illinois Secretary of State Capitol Police ban Jack Franks from entering the Capitol without an escort. They also reported the Speaker's office had determined the original complaint against Franks to be credible and later referred new information to various law enforcement agencies.
