Michigan Republicans Indicted for Election Fraud | Veracity Stew: "Perhaps you remember Thaddeus “Thad” McCotter. He is the former US Representative from Michigan’s 11th congressional district. A top ally of Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), the five-term Republican incumbent resigned his seat precipitously in July. Just last year, McCotter was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president in the 2012 election. He later scrapped his presidential bid and decided to run again for his seat in Congress. The discovery of massive fraud disqualified him from running for his seat when it was discovered that 85% of his ballot petition signatures were invalid."

This was not simply Keystone Kops run amok. Serious criminal acts were committed.
Here is full extent of those criminal acts:
- Of the 1800 signatures turned in on ballot petitions, only 244 were determined to be valid. 1000 were needed to secure a ballot slot.
- Many of the signatures were determined to be outright forgeries. Others were pasted in from old ballots and the forms were photocopied.
- Four McCotter staffers were indicted. One was charged with a misdemeanor for signing petition form that she did not circulate. The others were charged with felony election fraud violations, including forgery and conspiracy on ballot petitions.
- This is a Thad state of affairs indeed. Maybe someone ought to call Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida and let them know who the real perpetrators of election fraud are.
