Tag: 76th State House
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
via The Detroit News
House Speaker Jase Bolger personally appealed Monday to Ingham County Circuit Court judges to reject a request to empanel a one-judge grand jury to investigate a foiled election-rigging scheme in a Kent County legislative district.
Dropping the State Po-po investigation sure do create one of those "urban legend" nightmares for the MI-GOP.

The Dems are still Bailing.
All the talk of a dead Tea Party, weakened Republican party, conservative sitting on their hands, etc... One only has to look as far as a finger-in-the-wind wielding Roy Schmidt. Schmidt, following the in-trade expectations of crushing defeat of legislators on the left has realigned his loyalties. Michigan GOP chair Bobby Schostak says:"
"Representative Roy Schmidt is the latest casualty of the Democratic Party's extreme agenda of politics ahead people, and I applaud Rep. Schmidt for choosing to put his convictions and constituents first by joining the Republican Party. Michigan's economic comeback has just begun and there is still a lot of work to be done. But, make no mistake, the parties could not be any different - Republicans continue to offer serious solutions to defend Michigan's turnaround while Democrats hope to return Michigan to the days of broken budgets, big deficits and failed policies that will derail Michigan's comeback."But conveniently, no conservative shelled out the $100 to file and primary him on the Republican side.
He will be facing Democrat Matt Mojzak for the 76th state house seat.
Been here before?
We shall see.
