Gov. Rick Snyder’s re-election campaign said Wednesday it has fired an unpaid [how is one fired from an unpaid “job”? Are folks really that stupid?] college intern after he attempted to volunteer for rival Mark Schauer’s campaign.
Taylor Grenawalt, 19, was dismissed Tuesday evening after a liberal blogger published emails the Schauer campaign received from Grenawalt asking about opportunities to help Schauer get elected, Snyder campaign spokeswoman Emily Benavides confirmed.
“This is concerning a former intern who did this of his own volition. He’s no longer a part of our campaign,” Benavides told The Detroit News.
Benavides said Grenawalt was an unpaid part-time intern who joined the campaign in late May.
“As soon as we found out about all of this, he was dismissed. It’s nothing that the campaign condones,” Benavides said. “We did not know about it at the time. It’s definitely not in line with our campaign ideals.”
Of course it isn’t “in line”. That kind of behavior is reserved for Slick Rick’s paid professionals…
Mike Shirkey forgot to use the dollar sign for his 's'
It is what it is.
Mike Shirkey, Michigan’s Republican Senate leader said what he felt at the time, but forgot that triggered people trigger. Obviously his position is one of institutional respect, and the branches of our governmental authority must work together for the benefit of Michigan. But straight out calling the governor and her Democrat counter parts a bad name? Heaven forbid we continue our word oppression of the overly sensitive progressive.
It started earlier this month with Shirkey’s spokeswoman saying the governor “has proven herself untrustworthy” following a series of public events where Whitmer supported an organization — and then vetoed their state funding in her budget standoff with Shirkey and the GOP.
Then Shirkey spouted off in a speech before a group of College Republicans at Hillsdale College, reportedly painting Whitmer and her fellow Democrats as being “on the batshit crazy spectrum,” The Hillsdale Collegian student newspaper reported Thursday.
Because once one reaches Age of Majority (that’s 18 for slow folks), they all of a sudden don’t like bubblegum, Fruit Loops and, apple juice anymore? 🤦♂️ But seriously, Gov. Blue Shamu recently outlawed vaping for minors so, this is just a Democrat nanny-government ploy to tell adults how to conduct their life.
It is also sad to note that the only Republican leadership in Lansing, that appears to be worth a damn is- House Republicans.
On a particularly amusing note, some Boomer Gen acquaintances of mine who have switched to vaping to help them quit smoking are bitching up a storm about this. It tickles me to no end to remind them that they voted for Whitmer.
There are a couple of stories making the rounds, that taken individually, might not pique everyone’s interest for very long, but taken collectively should be sounding alarm bells at the highest levels of what passes for leadership in the Michigan Republican Party.
Especially considering who was the actual cause behind it.
Some things that must be said about the election of Nov 6
There was Chaos
The election of Nov 6 revealed much about our future, and what makes up a significant part of the voting public in our state. Michigan is now subject to the whims of estrogen,THC, envy, and puddle brained TV watchers.
Beginning Jan 1, we have a Governor who lies about her mother’s health care to get elected. Who advocates the further expansion of medicaid, but will not accept it in the family dental business. Who participates in the Vagina monologues; not from some little poetry club, but from the capitol steps in a way that makes Donald Trump’s worst days seem civil.
Beginning January 1, a nutty lesbian will be the Attorney General of Michigan. While this may seem an abusive way to describe our state’s next top lawyer, it is actually objective and accurate, if only from observing the personal way in which she treated her staff and the in-your face ways she flouts her unnatural life choices.
Beginning January 1 and if of age, you can get buzzed, high, stoned, wasted, crunked, etc., ..legally. You can carry around blunts, dope, weed, reefer, Mary-jo, Burrito, bag, and more ..legally. You still cannot drive with it in your system however, so try to figure out how best to crawl to that factory job without getting behind the wheel playa.
Beginning January 1, the old gerrymandering scheme is out! The NEW Gerrymandering scheme is in! Only THIS TIME, it will be with the assistance of the Secretary of State who embraces election fraud. With the new 2020 census and fresh ‘apolitical’ eyes, what could possibly go wrong?
Hospital concern prepares itself for Dept of Justice assault.
Wikileaks is incredible.
Its hard to look away as the latest and greatest insights into the mind of political players are exposed to the public eye. Much of what we KNEW was going on, has been validated, and every day something new has opened our eyes as well.
John Podesta, if one takes the time to read his one line responses can easily be imagined as the cool character who knows everyone, can say volumes with a word, and has kept the Obama/Hillary train on the track as a masterful puppeteer.
The puzzle that is being put together before our eyes and only days away from the most important election of our lifetime is spattered with purposeful deception, organized chaos, and a drive to keep certain players in power. Of course, money as the milk of politics is always subject matter, and the Hillary For America campaign will leave no stone unturned in order to fill the bucket.
“After our meet and as per Vardhan’s advise, I went and met the Indian Billinaire Dr. Prem Reddy.Dr. Prem Reddy is a founder, Chairman and CEO of a privately held 44 hospital chain called Prime Healthcare.He would be interested in contributing large some of money (Over a million).We would like to discuss with you about the modalities.”
“Over a million.”
Let that sink in. Over a million to a campaign for a candidate on the losing side of Citizens United. Messaging not allowed, but direct assistance welcomed.
