Republicans Keep Grifting, Michigan Ed.

LANSING (August 3, 2020) — With all the drama of a soap opera, the first approved recall ballot petition effort against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has canceled its signature collection amid allegations that the founder, Chad Baase, used the committee’s funds for personal use.
Baase, who is also running as a Republican for the 62nd Michigan House district, has flatly denied most allegations — except that money is missing.
A Trumpist politician dipped his hand into campaign funds for personal expenses.. or, in other words, "ops normal".

These days Republicans appear to get their fuel and momentum from their own transgressions, which then feed the next round of transgressions. It's a sort of ramjet of horrors. The worse it gets, the worse it gets.

Yours crankily,

You beat me to it.

I’d lean more to a pulse jet...alternating noise and silence...but if you understand a ramjet, it’s a scary visual of an accelerating situation.

Age and a long memory can have their disadvantages. We talk about points of reference that leave others mystified. But, in this case, it has only been a couple of decades.

Would it be too much to hope that a future headline about Chad Baase, his potential legal troubles, and the missing money makes some sort of reference to a hanging chad?

So it was the ex-girlfriend, Becka (NLN) that stole the money!

The "intern" defense.
