It was a cowardly act and seems nearly inexplicable given Schmidt's own bad-mouthing of Michigan Republicans. It's particularly dickish given that he had Democrats out knocking doors for him during the previous week.


Dude is in it for himself. There is no other explanation.

There's your error. Democrats aren't immune, but they aren't completely infected either. Republicans are so eaten up with it that they have started hacking off body parts. Sadly, they're going after the healthy limbs first.

Here's the Twitter feed of the "patsy" candidate.

I think he has to be somewhere in 26 minutes.
 
2012-07-18 03:42:11 PM
A few years back here in PA a State House member got elected as a Democrat and -- a week AFTER the election -- switched parties and turned the majority over to the GOP.

So while this guy is a dick, THAT guy was a dick made entirely of other dicks, lounging on a dick-shaped sofa made of dicks while his dick-framed TV made of dicks showed "Dick Wars: The Dick Strikes Dicks" with an all-dick cast.

And the next election he got crushed.

Sounds like's a perfect fit for the modern Republican party.

There is actually more to this story. It turns out that an unknown named Matt Mojzak filed to run as a Democrat in the 76th District just eight minutes before Schmidt pulled his dick move. Who is Mojzak? A friend of Schmidt's nephew.

Yesterday, however, Mojzak withdrew as a candidate, confirming that this was nothing more than a scam being pulled by Michigan Republicans.
...
While Roy Schmidt's fake Democrat Matt Mojzak has withdrawn from the race, serious legal questions remain. Today, Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer sent letters to Attorney General Bill Schuette and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson calling for an immediate and thorough investigation of perjury and election fraud.


Interesting...
 
2012-07-18 04:03:18 PM
Only someone who does not possess the conviction or confidence to face the voters would pull a stunt like this. He'll fit in perfectly with the Republicans.

Amen.
 
2012-07-18 04:15:46 PM
I don't care what side did that, it should be illegal. The outrage should come from the party he now represents/helped, first and foremost.

This (calling him a scumbag is an insult to scumbags) ____ better hope that the kickbacks he's getting this term are enough to last the rest of his lifetime as his career in public office is essentially over.

It gets better: Schmidt offered Mojzak first $450 and then $1000 to run.

Old article is old (but worthy of attention). Here's an update that makes me angrier, as a Michigan resident.

Schmidt says no inquiry is necessary. "From my perspective, it's just politics."

The governor is a Republican. They won't do shiat. And since that is the case, a line Teabaggers liked to use about what to do to fascists comes to mind, since this is a stolen election.

And then there was Arlen Spector's party switch, which then allowed him to get thrashed in the democratic primary, instead of the republican one.
 
2012-07-18 06:30:25 PM
If this switch were in the opposite direction, FOX and the bloggers would harp on it for days, calling it an affront to America and a fraudulent election. But since it went in their favor, you won't be hearing a peep.

At least have the courage of your convictions, right-wingers. Call this kind of stunt out for what it is...sleazy and underhanded. If even one teabagger of influence decries this practice instead of celebrating it as a victory, I'll shake his hand and buy him a beer. Especially if you're one always ranting about voter fraud. At least then I can respect your consistency.

Pixiest: Don't forget Jim Jeffords: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jeffords


I don't remember what happened in Vermont years ago, but when he switched did he do it such a spectacularly douchey fashion (i.e., leaving the GOP with no candidate to replace him)? Skimming the wiki, I didn't see any detail on that (though I could have missed it).

The real issue here is NOT that this guy bailed for the GOP. It's that he left his former party's dicks swinging in the breeze. It's totally OK to switch affiliations whether for personal belief changes or for expediency. But there are better ways of doing it than giving your former friends ten farking minutes to produce a replacement.

So since the voters picked a Democratic he shouldn't accept the post correct? And vice versa. Frankly it's deceiving the voters particularly if you switch how you vote after you do it.

Its a representative democracy and its their own fault for electing a dick to represent them. He didn't suddenly become a selfserving ass but apparently they were fine with it as long as he registered democrat. Chose better next time.

Not just the governor, but the state AG and Supreme Court as well. Any "investigation" will not only find no wrongdoing on the part of any Republicans involved in this obvious fraud, but they might also "find" that the Democrats who complained committed various felonies during the process of filing the complaint.

/and if this were done in the opposite direction -- some guy running as a Republican and switching his party affiliation to Democrat at the last possible moment -- within a week he'd be found with a dead hooker, with a live boy, with a pile of coke the size of a Lincoln Navigator, or dead from two or three "self-inflicted" gunshot wounds from a double-action revolver or bolt-action rifle.
 
2012-07-18 07:30:07 PM
The action was terrible itself, but how does this happen to leave this to the final minute, to spend resources on a potential rather than approved candidate, and not have any other candidates to run? Flabbergasted with this perfect storm of assholishness on his behalf, incompetence on behalf of the party, and issues with the laws.
