    From my blog http://migopwatch.wordpress.com/

    Bob Schostak's not so subtle campaigning for Michigan Republican Party chairman is virtually unprecedented. The election is still a week away and he's crisscrossing the state, attending tea party meetings, calling local activists, and meeting up with candidates in targeted races.

    His latest engagement is a major speaking engagement Thursday at the North Oakland Republican Club. It's tough to tell how many people will show up, but the group often attracts 150-200 die hard Republican grassroots activists, most of whom are precinct delegates. These are the sort of activists he must get on his team before the state convention in February. They're unfamiliar with Schostak, who is misusing his officialdom as state GOP finance chairman.

    Someone should ask Schostak why the heck the finance chairman is stumping for the party a few days before the election. Why isn't Ron Weiser, the party chairman, out there? Weiser has basically anointed Schostak as his successor. Rumor also has it that Weiser will resign after the election and clear the way for Schostak to become chairman in all but name.

    Listen, Schostak has some good ideas. But his Republican, let alone conservative, credentials are questionable. The guy has money and he's used that wealth to buy himself a position in the Michigan Republican Party.

    Sure he gave some money to local Republican politicians like Thad McCotter, but he has too many questionable donations to major Democrats like Jennifer Granholm, Debbie Stabenow, Carl Levin, Al Gore and even John Kerry. It's understandable if a rich businessmen is tries to buy influence with politicians of both parties with a few donations here and a few donations there. But examining Schostak's contributions, one sees that he was clearly a Democrat in the 1990s and early 2000s. He appears to have drifted to the right in the last few years as the Granholm administration made Democrats unpopular in Michigan.

    This makes me ask: Is Bob Schostak a bandwagon Republican? I believe he is. I have no doubts whatsoever that he would be a Democrat if the Republicans were as unpopular as Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Granholm-Bernero are right now.

    Ask folks in Livonia and Northville what they think of Bob Schostak. Most of them will probably tell you his tactics during the annexation battle in which he pitted those two formerly friendly neighbors against each other was disgusting. Schostak manipulated laws and flat out lied to citizens to further his land development. It was so bad that Livonia voted down the annexation even though it would have benefited them, due to the pure scumminess of the campaign which was bankrolled by Schostak.

    But don't take my word for it...


    I cannot and will not support any organization chaired by Schostak the crook.

    I don't get this post.  A party leader is criss-crossing the state talking to tea parties, talking to candidates, and talking to activists.  At the same time he is raising money and getting resources to make sure we win elections.  That's a bad thing?  

    Migopwatch, why don't you get off your couch and instead of blogging about the upcoming MIGOP race, you help some of the candidates and talk to some of the activists Bob is talking to to get them ready for Tuesday?  

    Spend less time watching party races that don't matter right now and start helping. Follow Bob Schostak's lead.
