Politics is always interesting.
Forever termed congressman John Conyers will not be on the ballot this year. Conyers has been in congress since 1965, (The picture at right from 1977.) and quite possibly will be gone after 2014. From Fox news:
“Longtime Congressman John Conyers of Michigan doesn’t have enough signatures to appear on the Aug. 5 primary ballot, an elections official announced Tuesday.
Conyers’ nominating petitions were insufficient, Wayne County Clerk Kathy Garrett said in a statement.
It follows her report last week finding Conyers more than 400 signatures short of 1,000 needed. Garrett said Tuesday that he had 592 valid signatures after challenges.”
It comes as no surprise that Conyers’ signature counts included WAY too many that were not registered voters.
The REAL talent is in the Democrat party however. Many were likely dead for decades as well.
