    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    It's either fraud or massive incompetence and either one should be fatal running for Congress

    Attaboy, Mike.  That's the "rules matter" Jarhead that folk like and respect.

    via The Detroit News

    "No one has heard of anything so over the top before," echoed former Republican Attorney General Mike Cox. He added: "To have really overt massive potential fraud is really very unusual."

    Secretary of State Ruth Johnson's office had turned over preliminary findings to Attorney General Bill Schuette's office, which won't comment. But Cox said investigators have tools working in their favor -- a stack of paper evidence, names and signatures of circulators and the power of an investigative subpoena to compel circulators to talk.

    "Ruth and Bill are going to have to go to where the facts go, whether that leads them to (McCotter's staff) or to Thad," said Cox, who said he won't run as a write-in for the McCotter seat. He said his family and the McCotters are close, but now he is for "anybody but Thad."


    But for nominating petition fraud, the sanctions spelled out in Michigan's election law are misdemeanors.

    Someone who signs another's name on a petition, makes a false statement, or signs a petition as a circulator who is not faces up to a $500 fine and 93 days in jail.

    Additionally, if the candidate or a petition circulator knew of such petition fraud and didn't report it to authorities, he is guilty of misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine and one year imprisonment, under the law.

    Rest here

    Isn't that just lovely?  Bottom line: We have a smarmy, career DC politico doofus from his specially redrawn District-11 who is now wasting our tax dollars on a misdemeanor witch-hunt that he is responsible for creating.

    Thanks, Thad.

    This story is about, what, a week old?

    And we hear this from the AG's Office:

    "We will follow the facts, without fear or favor," said Schuette.  "It's our duty to maintain the integrity of our election process.  We will conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation. If evidence of criminal violations is uncovered, we will not hesitate to prosecute."

    Meanwhile, in a story that was broke by the people from the Mackinac Center YEARS AGO regarding a scam by the SEIU to skim union dues from people, most of whom have not even heard of the SEIU, was not only dragged out even further by a recalcitrant republican party after they controlled BOTH houses of the state legislator and governor's office (and even more discouraging: The direct efforts behind the scenes from a republican state senator), but it took almost $30-million in stolen money and six-weeks after SB-1080 was finally passed and signed before the AG's Office releases an opinion "officially" ending the practice.

    Still no word yet on how the full refunds will be handled nor why Olga Dazzo hasn't been arrested for her part in this.

    It is just me who found the timing of this rather peculiar?
