That Has To Hurt

When something is SO bad it cannot be ignored.

Jocelyn Benson and Dana Nessel are probably less than enthused.

Less enthused about their prosecutorial discretion, given the fact they must actually dress down one of their own.  However, the fact that Southfield Clerk Sherikia L. Hawkins could possibly have been reached at her office, is a testament to the real justice in an election fraud case that these two ‘guardians’ of our vote are willing to pursue.  Nessel’s grand opening:

” “Voting is fundamental to the very essence of our democracy,” Nessel said during a Monday news conference. “It is incumbent upon state governments to safeguard the electoral process and ensure that every voter’s right to cast a ballot is protected.” “

Trust us to make this right.

Followed by Benson’s:

Hawkins’ alleged actions, did not alter the outcome of any election, Benson stressed, and “there were no voters that were disenfranchised.”

“All valid votes in the election were ultimately counted and the final official vote total was accurate,” Benson said.

Uh huh.

Downplay the potential damage, right?  In other words, “don’t worry, this is a one off, and all the Democrats won where Democrats win.”    ‘Writing a letter,’ Benson clearly sent a message however:

Benson said she sent a letter to Hawkins on Monday, saying that the pending charges compromise her ability to administer the upcoming Nov. 5 city election. In the interim, she said, the state’s Bureau of Elections with work with staff in the Southfield clerk’s office to handle all administration of elections in the city.

“My office will remain actively involved” to ensure elections in Southfield run smoothly, Benson said. “Our response is careful, measured, swift and the consequences are severe.”

Benson: “leave the ballot fraud to the pros.”

Sending the unmistakable message “Call me next time before you further embarrass us you rank amateur.”

    Sorry, Jason, but this is a far bigger (and strangely bipartisan) problem bigger than just these two shemps.

    Remember when large numbers of ballots went "missing" in Detroit back in '16?

    Where was (then) AG Schuette or SoS Johnson?

    In what should've been an super easy conviction...Janice "Speed Racer" Winfrey could've been made a perfect example of, and sent to prison long ago for that.

    Nothing ever happened!

    Or, just last year when entire voting machines "went missing" in Detroit?

    Curiously, no hastily scheduled press conference with AG Nessel or SoS Benson on that one.

    I cannot imagine why?

    My Magic 8-Ball is telling me that Hawkins will only get a legal slap on the wrist (a'la James Comey) and nothing will ever be spoken of this, once it falls off of the 24-hour news-cycle's radar sometime before Friday.
