Facts Of The Day – Wednesday Edition

As if, Facts Of The Day – Tuesday Edition wasn’t vomit inducing enough, take a gander…


Big Tent, my ass! It’s a swamp cesspool.

Then, there’s Jenell…

The fish always rots from the head.

The political trench warfare has alienated some longtime party loyalists.

Willis, of Bath Township, was recruited to be the Clinton County GOP chairman three years ago by the past chairman, Tom Leonard, who is now a state representative from DeWitt.

But Willis said he was cast aside last week when Calley’s forces — led by Leonard’s wife, Jenell, a top Calley aide — dominated a county convention and denied him one of the county’s 19 delegate seats.

Willis and his wife, Sheri, won alternate spots instead, but aren’t planning to attend the convention.

“I’ve got kind of a bad taste in my mouth right now for politics,” said Willis, who spent 32 years in the Legislature’s bill-drafting offices. “I knew there was a lot of stuff that went on (in politics), but I didn’t know it was this bad.”

The money quote?

Calley, who declined to be interviewed for this story, has never publicly opposed the governor on major policy decisions, but routinely says he is “the conservative voice” inside the Snyder administration.

I suppose Bee-esS sells to some but, who is actually dumb enough to buy it?
