Only SANCTIONED thievery is allowed in Michigan's cronyism environment.
Rick Snyder got the ball rolling back not too long after Jennifer Granholm was blushing behind a privacy screen on the dating game, but well before she became our state’s executive Monte Hall.
Rick Snyder was the first CEO of the MEDC, and don’t let this fact escape anyone.
The MEDC has given BILLIONS of dollars to ‘winners’ since its inception in the 90s. Granholm was certainly more embarrassed however, to find out that it was the MEDC under her watch which gave $9 million to a guy running an international corporation out of a trailer in flint. He just got out of prison.
That guy didn’t really have a business, and he went to jail. He didn’t create the jobs and suffered penalties for fraud.
Of course there were others who abused the system and also paid.
Why do you suppose that is the way its done?
