Shunned former 'Republican' representative joins anti gun lobbying efforts
It was becoming clear that the incumbent Republican for that district was in no way representative of the conservative values he had pretended in his initial bid. From accepting tens of thousands for his upcoming campaign loss from pro-homosexual lobbying interests, added to an otherwise liberal voting record, Frank Foster had completely alienated the very (tea party) base he had enchanted in 2010.
Foster lost to Lee Chatfield in the primary of 2014, marking a rare incumbency defeat in the Michigan house races. Voters turned him out in a 6 point rout:
“In Northern Michigan, a good thing happened Tuesday. Frank Foster, a man who by virtue of his lunch dates in Lansing alone, should not be representing the 107th district was voted off the animal farm. Voted most desirable date to go to the Capitol prom by lobbyists, he was a top recipient of food and drink topping Randy Richardville the Senate majority leader in 2013.”
His departure has hardly left him out in the cold however. He is apparently remaining in the political scene as a gun grabber.
An examination of the minutes from a recent hearing on preemption bill (HB 4795) before the committee on local government reveal Foster is still active, and has apparently gone completely to the dark side. His time there was to represent opposition to legislation which provides further 2A protections for gun owners from abusive local government.
