    Schostak Flirting With a Potential Keith Ellison-D in CD-11

    I just happened to catch this little gem from the Worst Party Chair EVER via The Detroit News.

    Bentivolio will face Dr. Syed Taj, a Canton Township trustee, in November. Cassis congratulated Bentivolio, but did not offer an endorsement.

    Bobby Schostak, chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, offered a mild endorsement of Bentivolio at a GOP unity event in Lansing, but would not commit the party to spending money in the 11th District to help him win.

    "It's obviously difficult to have a write-in campaign. He succeeded. He's a Republican on the ballot, and we intend to send a Republican to Washington. Plain as day," Schostak said.

    "We'll evaluate the races equally and where possible we'll invest in races."

    Later in the day, the Michigan Republican Party issued a memo emphasizing that the 22,276 Republican write-in votes "beat" the 21,952 votes Taj got in his Democratic primary victory against Bill Roberts, a Lyndon LaRouche activist from Redford Township.

    The memo also noted Bentivolio received more votes than Taj and Roberts combined.

    With Taj as the nominee, Democrats see the 11th District as a possible opportunity to capture a Republican seat that would have been unimaginable six months ago.

    So, the only Republican on the ballot in CD-11 receives "He succeeded" in an all-out  orchestrated smear campaign waged against him.  That besmirching of Kerry Bentivolio, actually happened at the MI-GOP "Unity" event for Hoekstra?  What strange bedfellows.  Pete, and John, where's all that 'Relentless Positive' talk from folk in Party Leadership for, Mr. Bentivolio?   DRIC Nerd make no likey for Kerry-san too?  DRIC Nerd has not been afraid to poke his nose into Oakland Co politics before, so that is a reasonable question to raise.

    Wow!  What a take away from it all.  Unbelievable.  Well, maybe it's not so unbelievable considering that Chair Schostak was gushing over adding the 2010 MEA, UFCW, AFL-CIO, MI AFSCME, AFT endorsed Democrat, Roy Schmidt poisoning the Party well.

    The CD-11 agenda is obvious.  If Chair Schostak isn't signaling the local Party's that he is willing to aid them with noncommittal messages to get their Chosen One elected on Sept 5, then nothing is.  Folks in CD-11, you're now being played at the state level.  Without doubt.  The state level players have said that you are incompetent dummies that need your candidate selected for you by networked hierarchy folk with money.

    Frankly, I'm not sure where the grassroots stand anymore after their successful ouster of NPV Saul Anuzis and his ties to the Anyone but Hoekstra senate candidate, but if this kind of ongoing election manipulation such as "DELE-GATE" by establishment is to ever end, replacing Saul and Holly, with the Honorable Rep. Dave Agema, and Terri Lynn Land, was just the beginning.

    Bobby Schostak, has to go.
