How freakin’ desperate can a person get? Well, check out exactly how desperate.
All due respect to Sen. Cruz, please go take a hot shower and be sure to use plenty of soap.
See, this is exactly the problem with all this ingrained, union-type mentality that exists within the Party apparatchik. The best and brightest to the front of the line? Nope. The Party power brokers stand fast with playing the tired old seniority, and pay your dues game (nothing directed at you Dan, but you just happen to state the obvious). What serves to exacerbate this problem? Every damn time an out-of-stater comes to town, and lends credence to those who they may or may not be completely aware of who they really are lending their good name to for some $peaking engagement *wink-wink-nudge-nudge, Johnny*.
It’s not like anyone can say they have never seen it happen before in Michigan. Good intentions? Most likely. Wasn’t well informed? That would be the understatement of the decade. Fact.
Do whatever it is that pleases you but, there is no way in Hell you’ll catch me casting a vote for this weasel.

Campaign finance reports show Betsy and Dick DeVos each contributed $37,500 to the PAC this year. In 2008, Wieser contributed $50,000. The vast majority of political contributions from the group go to conservative Republican candidates, according to state campaign finance reports.
McNeilly said his group is supporting about 34 candidates in state House and Senate races in the primary, including about 12 Democrats. He said GLEP supports public education reform and increasing charter schools in Michigan and will back any candidate who believes in those causes, regardless of political party affiliation.

'The dirtiest campaign I've ever been involved in'
GLEP members thought Muxlow would support them and felt betrayed by his vote.
Muxlow, a former school board president, said he voted “no” because he didn’t support unlimited expansion of charter schools — though he said he would have supported a limited expansion. He said he was worried about the effect charter schools might have if they came into small rural school districts such as his and siphon off students, potentially devastating traditional schools.
“There are small school districts in Sanilac County, they have good teachers, good test scores,” Muxlow said. “They (for-profit companies) would rather charter up there than in Detroit. They could make their money and have good results. But it would kill those districts.”
At the time, Muxlow didn’t think much about his vote. But less than six months later, a political consultant dropped by Muxlow’s office to give him a heads-up — he was about to be punished. The consultant, who wasn’t working for Muxlow, told him he had been approached by GLEP to run an opposing primary campaign.
In July and August 2012, the organization pumped out $184,718.40 to try to defeat Muxlow. His opponent, Bob Eick, spent only $33,847 himself.
GLEP papered Muxlow’s Sanilac County and St. Clair County district with 18 postcard ads featuring photos of Muxlow, Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi in hopes of tying him to the Democrats. And there were 23 radio ads, robocalls and cable television ads.
“It was all because of the charter vote,” Muxlow said. “This was the dirtiest campaign I’ve ever been involved in.”
