One-person grand jury to investigate Bolger & Schmidt in election fraud scandal

May justice be served

The Ingham County Circuit Court has chosen to convene a one-person grand jury to investigate the election fraud misdeeds of Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger and newly-minted Republican House caucus member Roy Schmidt. This same type of arrangement was used recently to investigate fraudulent behavior by Democrats to run fake tea party candidates and resulted in convictions. The justice that will investigate is Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina who was chosen by random draw.

Michigan Attorney General Schuette pursues far-right, conservative agenda, not justice

Forsyth’s investigation reveals that Schmidt and Bolger conspired to hire the weightlifting buddy of Schmidt’s nephew, Matthew Mojak, to run as a Democrat but not actually campaign. This would have forced Democrats to run a REAL Democrat in the primary as a write-in candidate, virtually assuring they would lose and that Schmidt would essentially have no opponent in the November general election.

“Democrat” Roy Schmidt pulls ultimate dick move, jumps to GOP too late for another Dem to run

There are dick moves and then there are DICK MOVES. This is the latter. NOTE: this post has been updated HERE. It’s not often you see an elected official act like this much of an asshole and to do it such a dickish and public way. Ten minutes before the filing deadline to run for the Michigan House of Representatives […]
