    Yes, the democrats are at it again.

    Who is it this time?

    {Click below to find out.}

    I'm sure as many readers are aware of, the Democratic Party tried to pull a fast one on Michigan Voters a few years ago.

    Attempting to capitalize on growing Tea Party movement across America, they felt that they could easily dupe voters from supporting conservative candidates, thereby helping their candidates win elections by creating a faux-Tea Party.

    The problem was, no one knew who the people behind this fake Tea Party were.

    The people organizing it kept to the shadows for the longest time. Doing everything behind the scenes with little to no fan fare.

    Calling a "state convention" at the last minute.

    Releasing a slate of delegates that not only most people never heard of, but based upon their slate's previous connections, would be hard pressed to be categorized as even remotely supporting the Tea Party's core philosophy.

    And even having the audacity of signing up several of those people to be candidates, without even having the common courtesy of getting their permission first.

    Well, it didn't work.

    Through the work of Chetly Zarko & Jason Gillman, these people were exposed for the scam artists they really were.

    It was ultimately discovered that the Oakland County Democratic Party, more specifically then-Oakland County Democratic Chair Mike McGuinness and then-Democratic Operations Director Jason Bauer were involved with forging signatures and other documents relating to their cheap Tea Party knockoff and were subsequently brought up on several felony charges.

    The Michigan Democratic Party promptly disavowed any knowledge of their activities and subsequently threw them under the proverbial bus.

    After their trial, in typical Michigan Jurisprudence fashion, just like all other politically connected defendants, these two were given a legal slap on the wrist: fines, court costs and probation.

    But with one stipulation: They were not to break any more laws.

    Not that difficult a condition to follow...right?

    Wrong. One of them couldn't.

    So who is the schemp in question?

    According to The Detroit News this week:

    "Jason Bauer, 28, of Auburn Hills was arrested March 10 for alleged drunken driving in Warren. He went before Oakland Circuit Judge James Alexander for violating one of the conditions of probation -- not to break any more laws -- and was sentenced to 30 days in jail."

    Anyone want to lay odds of him getting out even before then?

    "Best and Brightest" and Jocelyn Benson (none / 0) (#1)

    Yup.  All are things to remember...

    The Free Press found:

    • Mike McGuinness, the recently resigned chairman of the Oakland County Democratic Party, who had denied any role in the Tea Party controversy, recruited his former stepmother to run for state representative.

    • Jason Bauer, 30, of Waterford, former operations director for the Oakland Democrats and McGuinness' roommate, notarized petitions for at least four affidavits to run for office for people who now -- directly or through a relative -- say they didn't sign the affidavits. Overall, he notarized 12 of 23 Tea Party candidate affidavits.

    • State Senate candidate Frantt Whitehill of Midland, who insists he's a real tea partyer, is a Democratic donor who ran for precinct delegate as a Democrat in August.

    • Three Tea Party candidates recently gave money to Democrats.

    Bauer and McGuinness did not answer their door this week or respond to phone calls.

    Just imagine how disastrous elections our would be if we now had Jocelyn Benson as SoS.  From 9/8/2010

    Michael McGuiness, who served as Director of Operations for the Jocelyn Benson for Secretary of State campaign, and Jason H. Bauer have resigned their positions within the Oakland County Democratic Party in the wake of these revelations. Both Mr. McGuiness and Mr. Bauer have been shown to be directly connected to many of the filings in question in media accounts.

    A truism.  Elections can't be rigged by The Left unless they're close.
