    Will the FBI turn up improprieties surrounding Mitt's National Finance Co-Chairmen, John Rakolta?

    Could the questions that now surround the Wayne County Business Development Corporation be a factor?  Who really knows for sure where this whole mess will lead.

    Sure are some strange bedfellows though...

    Boston, MA - Mitt Romney today welcomed the support of Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville (R-Monroe), who will serve as a Co-Chair of the Romney campaign in Michigan.

    "Michigan will be a critical state during the Republican nomination process, as well as the General Election, and I'm honored to have Majority Leader Richardville join my team," said Mitt Romney.

    "I am pleased to support Mitt Romney for president. I've had the opportunity to talk with Mitt specifically about Michigan and he clearly understands the challenges our state faces and his personal connections to our state will ensure that Michigan will be on his mind in the White House," said Richardville. "Mitt's background as a conservative businessman and successful Governor will make him a president we can count on to help Michigan get back on track."

    Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, chairman of the Michigan Romney campaign, welcomed the addition of Majority Leader Richardville saying, "We are assembling a leadership team here in Michigan for Governor Romney that is second-to-none. Randy has exhibited strong leadership in the State Senate, sharing Governor Romney's focus on jobs and the economy, and he will be a valuable asset as we win Michigan for Mitt Romney."

    Background On Senator Majority Leader Randy Richardville:

    Randy Richardville was elected to the Michigan Senate in November, 2006. Upon re-election in 2010, he was selected as Senate Majority Leader. Prior to his election to the Senate, Randy spent three terms in the Michigan House of Representatives from 1999-2004. He held a leadership position in the House in each of his terms.

    Prior to being elected to office, Randy worked in the business community - with 20 years of experience in Fortune 500 companies.

    Hmmmm, and it was just on October 18 we all went through this.

    "People expect the FBI to step in and do their job, but I would also say it's possibly a missed opportunity for this state government and for us in Lansing to have shown that there is something that is there in our state that needs some looking in to, that we be willing to do it," said Olumba.

    Indeed Rep. Olumba.  Hey, you know something Rep. Olumba, I was just thinking that maybe what happened to your request is...

    No.  Not saying.  Just saying... what if?

    I realize they have a lot to work with, but I am seeing a bang up job in rooting out corruption.

    Rakolta's a little more than just the national finance chair. He's part of the family.
