    Schauer Goes On Welfare

    Mark Schauer's campaign for governor has been down to the public assistance office because he doesn't have enough money to pay the help.

    In an absolutely hilarious statement, his spokesperson explains the plight as NOT being needed for paying the help:

    Schauer spokesman Zack Pohl said the campaign has "every day expenses" such as offices, employees and materials to pay for and denied the request for public funding was a sign of a fundraising weakness for Schauer seven months before the primary.

    "It's fairly common on the Democratic side, especially when you have a wealthy opponent like Rick Snyder," Pohl said.

    Nah.  Its fundraising weakness.

    Schauer isn't seen a good investment, even though he is all the Dems have, and that isn't saying much. In the meantime, if the political welfare check doesn't arrive on time, you can bet the operations will be done out of a cold cardboard box with a few less employees. Economic reality folks.

    And in other news, Governor Rick Snyder will spend half a million smackers to persuade folks what a good job he has done:

    " Records reviewed by the Free Press show the Snyder campaign has purchased $400,000 worth of TV air time during the Feb. 2 Super Bowl with Fox affiliate WJBK-TV (Channel 2) and $18,000 worth of ad time on the Lansing Fox affiliate, WSYM-TV (Fox 47). Though full details were not available, the purchases are part of a statewide buy for a 60-second spot. "
    And 60 second spots are made for telling stories.

    Snyder and Schauer BOTH have interesting pasts with regard to finance reporting though. The nerd fund, with its 'Mysterious' donors, and Mark Schauer with Campaign finance irregularities

    Yup.  Peas in a pod.

    It looks like stalking horse Schauer is a piker in comparison to the real deadbeat.

    Then again, Democrats aren't very smart. Otherwise they would've left Nixon in office to get their Obamacare decades ago.

    . . . we temporarily shift the spotlight to one Mark Anthony McFarlin, Bay City native, private investigator, Independent candidate for Governor of Michigan in 2002 (as well as three-time opponent to entrenched Bay County Executive, Thomas Hickner), and a conservative populist by political philosophy.  He's challenging Mark Schauer for the Democrat nomination this time around, which, combined with the challenge to Peters' coronation, is making it a bit difficult for Chairman Johnson to avoid costly and potentially bitter primary campaigns, at least temporarily.

    Popcorn, anyone?

    Democrats are always looking for someone else to fund their activities.

    Why do you think that they are always promising free things in exchange for votes?

    Just out of curiosity has anyone heard who the US Taxpayers or Libertarians are running (or even if they are running anyone)?
