Campaign Fundraising has very “Questionable” Union Donations to MIGOP Republicans
So you think you’re voting for a Republican?
Better check the candidate your casting your vote for because if you don’t you may not get what you think! This statement says it all. Amber McCann, spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe said:
“It’s not a shock to see large contributions from “Unions” like the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Operating Engineers Local 324, and the Regional Council of Carpenters to the Democrats.”
Amber McCann actually cut her teeth in politics in former Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm’s administration. “When I was interviewing for Senator Richardville’s press secretary position they asked me how I knew I was a Republican, McCann recalls. And she said, “My dad told me that growing up.” My dad is a guy that likes to watch Fox News.
Here are some examples of “Union Campaign Donations” to so-called Republican Sen. Richardville and there are many others! Compiled from the Michigan Secretary of State’s web site, Ballotpedia and Follow the Money.

Rick Snyders tax hikes, support of superfluous bureaucracies and support for Obamacare (just for starters) should dispel any doubt about the "reality" of two political parties here in Michigan.
Richardville is termed out. My state senator is Joe Hune who has done a damn good job. There is a great deal of difference between him and his democrat opponent.
Yes, Dan, concerning Modus OpeRandy, indeed, term limits are a blessing otherwise that bastard would be around longer. Now, with respect to your official capacity objective of highlighting one picking fly shit out of pepper.
Please, do explain to everyone about your Party.
