Request to rescind/remove co-sponsorship of the Roe V Wade resolution made the day after.
I am committed to the truth.
Whether or not the initial record of cosponsoring is some freakish inexplicable mistake, Tonya Schuitmaker DID apparently request removal from the list of cosponsors of the resolution in question.
This image is apparently the request made the day after the journal date.
A couple things are strange however. It does not say “Please correct the record to reflect that I DID NOT cosponsor this resolution” And.. (as a side thought) Medicaid expansion in Michigan IS abortion funding.
I will make sure any comments on her behalf are included, as I rarely filter except for the spam we often receive.
Tonya Schuitmaker pro Roe v Wade a disturbing development
An Attorney General can ‘decide’ not to defend the constitution.
A state AG can decide based on personal motivation to pursue (or not) just about anything that strikes their fancy. This is why it is important to understand the core beliefs of those whom we might elevate to such a position.
Imagine if the contentious Roe v. Wade were to be sent back to the states so that the state of Michigan could decide. Would the AG support the efforts to protect the sanctity of life; protect the unborn from the brutality of abortion on demand? Where would the AG’s conscience lay?
Schuitmaker has opportunity To defend Colbeck at the most appropriate time, yet chokes.
Pat Colbeck was a champion for Michigan.
And for a couple more months he still will be a champion. I’ll not mince words about it. I support our nominee wholeheartedly, but truly I believe Pat was a man who by all measure attempted to find solutions and serve the people of this state with principles solutions, honor, and substance.
Pat had a long road to get to the point where he decided to run. His eight year service as State Senator was solid, and he was/is unafraid to face down the jackals like Richardville and Meekhof; two of the swampiest representatives to ever find leadership roles in Lansing.
Still serving his constituents in Lansing until the end of this year, Pat Colbeck lost all committee assignments, and had all office control removed. Why? Because he wouldn’t play kiss the pollywog’s ass’ with Senator Arlan Meekhof. This is not a common occurrence in Michigan’s robust history, and could only happen with the thinnest skinned critters in leadership.
Recently, I received an email showing all of the “conservative leaders” throughout the state of Michigan who support House Speaker Tom Leonard for Attorney General. This list of leaders assured me that Leonard’s leadership record in the House was impeccible and that he is a man who “truly understands our issues and stands up for our values.”
Then I saw that he voted for House Bill 5325 (HB5325), legislation that hikes property taxes on homeowners for the purposes of crony giveaways to well-connected private interests. This scam is called a “special assessment” and a similar scheme may be on a local ballot in your municipality in the near future. This fraud is now picking up steam because of Leonard’s actions.
