    John Conyers Loses Driver's License

    Marxist congressman, John Conyers (MI-14), has lost his Michigan Driver's license because the check he wrote for the renewal fee, bounced.

    From The Hill dot com:

    In addition to Conyers, 11 out of 30 candidates for Congress had marks on their driving record that included 19 speeding tickets, four citations and three suspensions.

    Gross Point Woods businessman John Hauler, a Republican running in the 13th District, was the only other candidate to have his license suspended, the AP found. It was twice suspended after Hauler failed to handle other citations quickly enough. One of the suspensions stemmed from an equipment violation in 2006 and another in September 2009 when he failed to renew his registration on time. The first suspension lasted just 10 days while the second occurred for only four days.

    Two other Michigan candidates had more serious traffic violations on their records. Democrat Pat Miles, who is running in the 3rd District, and Republican John Kupiec in the 5th were ticketed multiple times and eventually received warning letters.

    Rep. Dale Kildee (D-Mich.) was nabbed by Virginia police for wrongfully using a high-occupancy-vehicle lane and Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), who chairs the Ways and Means Committee, has two speeding tickets on his record. Four other Michigan candidates for Congress also have two speeding tickets each on their records: State Rep. Gary McDowell; Republican Tim Walberg, who is running for the seat he lost in 2008; Rep. Gary Peters and Democrat Natalie Mosher.

    Tell me congressman Conyers, does the Good & Welfare clause address driver's license renewals?

    God help us!

    Hey, does anyone know if the IRS has knocked on his door yet regarding his knowledge of the Synagro bribe, er donation, made to his wife for her sludge contract vote?

    ...did anyone do a follow up about the fact that Levin lists his home in Chevy Chase, MD as a "primary residence"?

    I was under the impression that you had to at least live in the state that you claimed to represent?

    From the TaxProf Blog:

    Levin repaid the credit Friday, Chambers said, after being contacted by Roll Call. "Since Mr. Levin was not residing in the property for the full year and it is not his `principal residence,' Mr. Levin has written a check of $690 to the County and clarified and confirmed once again to them that the correct classification of the Morgan Drive property is `Not a Principal Residence,'" Chambers wrote in an e-mail.

    Chambers referred to public records maintained by Montgomery County, which indicate the Chevy Chase home is a principal residence. Property records available from a Maryland state Web site indicate the property is not used as a principal residence. Montgomery County property tax records dating to 1999 show that Levin's home has changed classifications -- principal or not principal -- four times.

    Chambers said the property was designated as a principal residence in 2009, after Levin's attorneys submitted a revised deed to the county. "It appears that when Mr. Levin's lawyers submitted a deed to the County in April 9, 2009 that removed Mrs. Levin's name from the deed and transferred Mrs. Levin's share into a trust the County mistakenly changed the record on the property to `principal' residence without request from or notification to Mr. Levin," Chambers wrote. She also said that a change-of-address form Levin submitted after he moved to the Silver Spring condo prompted another change to "not a principal residence" in January 2010.

    Levin's been in Office since 1983 and this really does raise questions that need documented clarification.
