Bruce Franks: ‘If We Win, We’ve Exposed Problems in Election Board’

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Absentee balloting began Thursday in the rematch between incumbent 78th District State Representative Penny Hubbard and Democratic challenger Bruce Franks Jr.

Franks sued for, and won, the right to another election after losing last month’s primary to Hubbard by about 90 votes.

“It’s a good thing that this happened to us,” Franks says. “Because if we win all out, then we’ve exposed problems within the Board of Elections as well as election fraud with corrupt candidates.”

He tells KMOX’s Mark Reardon that he feels vindicated for pointing out irregularities after he narrowly lost the August 2nd primary to Hubbard, a three-term incumbent.

“There’s absolutely election fraud going on, on behalf of that particular campaign,” Franks says. “We talked to the people. We talked to the people first-hand. So, this isn’t not hear-say anymore. It’s not anybody speculating. Now it’s cold hard facts.”

Franks says win or lose during next Friday’s special election, he’s just glad he was given another opportunity to unseat Hubbard fair and square.

The actual election happens on Friday, September 16th.
