This particular list is a reason that Bobby Schostak ought not be the Republican Party chair for Michigan.
Democrat LAURENCE DEITCH received $2000 from each of the Schostak Brothers in his re-election for regent.
In 2008. Why?
One thing that has become clear in the last couple of years is that pandering to the other side brings nothing but misery. Seeding the other side with financial resources makes it harder for OUR guys to succeed. Does it ultimately matter if the chair is a good fundraiser, if our donations go to fight the beast he has fed in the past?
Consider this merely a start of a fact based critique.

Moroun, 84, and Stamper, 62, were sent to jail Thursday as punishment for their company being found in contempt of court. Judge Prentis Edwards said Detroit International Bridge Co. repeatedly failed to follow his orders to work with the state of Michigan and get the Gateway Project done.
have anything to do with THIS?
The son of a Detroit judge who is set to impose contempt of court penalties against Ambassador Bridge owner Matty Moroun has been appointed to the bench by Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder.
Somebody has some splainin to do.
It likely won't be Mr Moroun.
For the sake of integrity in the bench, perhaps in the executive branch in Lansing, I want to see a really good reason. I am really seriously shaken by this if it is true.
I know one fan of this site whom I hope would take a look at this. I pray there is no quid pro quo, but for the life of me I cannot get over what would have to be the crappiest coincidence in Michigan political history.
