Thaddeus McCotter...Captain Corruption?

Recommended Posts

Maybe. Maybe not.

Signature copies are often acceptable as evidence of a signature for various legal transactions.

To the extent that the copies were provided in lieu of the actual signatures, could simply indicate a mistake. A lot would depend on the intent of the individual who submitted these, whether they realized that these were unacceptable, and whether the copied signatures are valid or falsified. The bar to prove fraud is generally petty high. This is why an investigation is needed, and why you shouldnt' presume guilt based upon the morning radio report.

Yet the same people preaching about presuming guilt are the ones who disenfranchise voters because they think they could potentially commit fraud. Pretty lame really. I'm presuming guilt, but my upshot isn't disenfranchising thousands of legitimate voters, like y'alls side wants to do based on their presumptions of guilt.

btw, thanks for having the guts to actually address this. Your comrades still sound like crickets.

I retract what I said, I don't think I'm presuming him guilty. I inferred that he could potentially be guilty of fraud.

WEMU just said that the Secretary of State thinks the signatures were faked.

One of my friends, a Democrat, was of the opinion that someone inside the organization was sabotaging McCotter. Two thousand signatures isn't that many to get in a friendly district. This seems almost too sloppy, as if someone wanted to get caught. It would have almost been easier to actually get the signatures than to make such a dreadful fake.

Oakland County Republican leaders are excoriating him for violating Spartan law...i.e., he performed badly in battle.

Hmmm...with the way he is just suddenly dropping out - with fraud allegations against his campaign - I'm certainly not ruling out anything...including the possibility he was in the middle of this. I will interested to see how this all works out.

I was surprised to see him leave. Never seen anyone **** up a wet dream so bad before. But he'd prolly win the write-in. Maybe he'll run independent in the fall.

He's going to make more money elsewhere...he's done his time. I'm not sure he's quite Joe Scarborough quality as a TV face. But, he's got a wicked sense of humor.

[edit: it would be supremely unfair if of the two Livonia politicians who made it big...Ficano walked and McCotter had legal troubles]

Excellent news for Kerry Bentivolio, I'll be actively supporting him. I'd love to be represented by a libertarian leaning Republican.

Republicans were handed a gift. Hopefully they don't screw it up by supporting a write-in campaign.

Bentivolio has an interesting resume...automotive design, teaching, reindeer, and apiary.

Me too. Normally I support John Tartar but if the Republican's are giving me a libertarian-leaning candidate I may even volunteer for his campaign and certainly vote for him.

I prefer to say pro-liberty republican rather than libertarian leaning republican. I believe it's less of a turn-off to the establishment voters.
