Terri Lynn Land tweets about how “She made the DMV work”. Michigan doesn’t have a “DMV”.

My wife turned to me the other night and said, “Terri Lynn Land’s campaign is so bad it’s almost like she’s running it herself.” LOL.

Today, we get more evidence of her failure as a candidate with this tweet (screenshot here for posterity):

You can trust Terri to make DC work b/c she has the experience to back it up. Terri made the DMV work! #MISen pic.twitter.com/LkMWXUkxJR

Some states have Department of Motor Vehicles, often called “the DMV”. Here in Michigan, we have the Secretary of State or “SOS”. In fact, if you Google “Michigan Department of Motor Vehicles”, the top hit is the Michigan Secretary of State’s website.…

Federal judge slams Republican AG Bill Schuette for absence in child slavery case

A federal child slavery case against a West African man working as a janitor for the University of Michigan fell apart this week with the man getting only 21 months in jail. During the sentencing, U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow slammed Republican Attorney Bill Schuette for his absence in the case:

During the sentencing hearing, Tarnow took a shot at Washtenaw County and the state attorney general’s office for letting the federal courts handle this case when, he said, the states should have. He also asked where Attorney General Bill Schuette was on the case, noting he’s “on my television every night” declaring war against human trafficking, yet no one from his office appeared in this case.

Republican Congressional candidate Mike Bishop refutes Gov. Snyder’s “Comeback” rhetoric

With all of Gov. Snyder’s “Comeback Kid” and “Road to Recovery” rhetoric, you’d think Republican candidates in Michigan would be piling on to support the idea that Michigan is on the rebound.

Not so with Republican candidate Mike Bishop who is running in Michigan’s 8th Congressional district to replace Mike Rogers. He had this to say recently:

Bishop, 47, is chief legal officer for International Bancard Corp., a payment processing company.

He said his company most likely won’t reach its goal of adding more than two dozen employees this year due to burdensome federal regulations and taxation. The Affordable Care Act — which he said he would support repealing — tops the onerous regulations list, he said.

UPDATED: Fred Upton is panicking, threatens donors to crowd-funded MaydayPAC

This post has been updated with comments from Democratic candidate Paul Clements.

After the crowd-funded MaydayPAC announced they’d be spending $1.5 million to defeat Republican Fred Upton in MI-06, he turned to social media to decry what he called the “shadowy” group started by “Harvard millionaire” Lawrence Lessig (who is not a millionaire, by the way.)

But he didn’t stop there. The Huffington Post is reporting that Upton and a top aide and “former super lobbyist” Gary Andres got on the phones and began haranguing the PAC’s donors:

Silicon Valley executives who gave big money to a super PAC have received angry calls from a top aide to one of its targets, as well as calls from the targeted congressman himself, sources familiar with the situation told The Huffington Post.…

INTERVIEW: MDP Chair Lon Johnson – “The days of the Democratic Party playing defense in the state of Michigan are over!”

Following the 2012 presidential election, for the first time in many years, there was a real race for the leadership of the Michigan Democratic Party. Mark Brewer had been at the helm for 18 years and, though challenged by others over that period of time, no one had done so successfully. However, in 2013, Lon Johnson, a former Congressional candidate, campaign manager, and fundraiser took over the MDP after Brewer gracefully stepped aside during the statewide convention after a vigorous race.

During that race, I interviewed both Chair candidates. With Johnson a relative unknown by most Michigan Democrats, my interview with him was of particular interest to many who planned to vote at the spring convention.…

BREAKING: More corruption in the Snyder administration: $26.4 million in no-bid contracts awarded to campaign donor (UPDATED)

The Michigan Democratic Party released bombshell news today that the Snyder administration awarded $26.4 million in no-bid contracts to a high-dollar donor to the Snyder reelection campaign.

On June 9, 2014, the owners of J&B Medical Supply, which supplies diapers and other incontinence products to Department of Community Health, hosted a lavish fundraiser for Rick Snyder in Bloomfield Hills which was attended by about 150 contributors, and featured crystal stemware, professional lighting design and custom-made Rick for Michigan candy and water bottles. They raised $73,800 for Governor Snyder’s reelection campaign.

Here’s video from the fundraiser just to give you an idea of just how swanky this soiree was:

The very next day following the fundraiser, J&B Medical Supply had an existing state contract extended to the tune of nearly $400,000.

GUEST POST: Ann Arbor super activist Michael Rains explains why he is Getting Out the Vote and how YOU can, too!

I first encountered my dear friend Michael Rains on the streets of Ann Arbor. He had a cart he has dubbed “the Democracy Machine” and there was a crowd of people around him, waiting to sign petitions to recall Governor Snyder and to repeal Michigan’s anti-democratic Emergency Manager law. If there is a crowd of people in Ann Arbor – and often elsewhere in the state – Michael can often be found there with the Democracy Machine, distributing information and gathering petition signatures for causes he believes in.

Today, Michael is sharing with us his reasons for getting out the vote (GOTV) for the November Election and has information on how you can get involved, too.…
