I hate smug, duplicitous Republicans.
Jail contractor Walbridge Aldinger was selected over objections from contractors who complained the process favored the company. Its CEO, John Rakolta, served on a board of a nonprofit led by Mullin that was paying her a $75,000 bonus atop her $200,000 salary from the county.
Move along rank-and-file Romney/Rakolta cult Party sheeple.
You all will see the state GOP apparatchik do a big push for *Bluer* candidates.
Peters “has proven to be an independent voice for Michigan who puts good public policy ahead of partisan gain,” Milliken said in a statement.
*Oh OK, the real link, here.
The Ohio Republican will be in the Detroit area on Friday for a campaign event with former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, who is trailing Peters, D-Bloomfield Township.

Yessirree. They’ve been content being the minority Party at the table ever since the big spenders under Bush, gave up both chambers to Reid, and Pelosi, in November, 2006.

When considering the many consequences of a term limited Governerd, and his unfettered ability to implement a Progressive agenda due to his reliable Generation X underling presiding over the Senate, the Tweet above links to a worthy reminder of what happens when the alleged Conservative facade of Brian Calley is removed.
Not to mention Calley’s recent “toss ’em a bone” smugness on display in Jim Thienel’s manufactured Oakland County debacle, as if he’s already got the nomination in the bag.
That’s a fact, folks.
More whitewashing from the “Take a vote, not a vacation” files.

Not much to figure out about this insider propaganda piece above, especially, when one looks to the Nerd’s U of M Ann Arbor alumni ties, and this *coincidence* when rolling through Mrs. Fink’s Twitter timeline.
A group that sought to increase Michigan’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour effectively ended its ballot campaign Friday.
The Raise Michigan Coalition said Friday it would not wage a legal battle to get on the November ballot after the Board of State Canvassers rejected the group’s petitions last week because they contained too many duplicate signatures.
Canada appointed Kristine Burr and Genevieve Gagnon to the International Authority while Michael D. Hayes, Birgit M. Klohs and Matt Rizik [more Pricewaterhouse cronies just like Rich Baird] were appointed by
Michigan[Slick Rick]. Burr will serve as the chairwoman of the authority. Officials said a third Canadian member will be selected soon by the new Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, which also had appointments announced Wednesday.
Burr recently served as assistant deputy minister of Policy for Transport Canada; Gagnon is president of XTL Transport Inc.; Hayes is president and CEO of the Midland Center for the Arts; Klohs is the president and CEO of the Right Place Inc.; Rizik is the chief tax officer for Rock Ventures LLC.
The International Authority will oversee and approve key steps in the procurement process for the crossing.
UPDATE: our good friend, Mr. Ed Arditti has more at Windsor Square.
