This is a good one !!

Apparently Congressman John Conyers (D, MI) has failed to get enough signatures on his election ballot petition.

It's not that there weren't enough signatures, it's because not enough were from actual registered voters !!


And in fairness, yes this same thing happened to a Republican in the past, former Congressman Thaddeus McCotter. He must have lost that election !!

Maybe these guys are victims of a set-up?

Hmmm. Easy to happen if you trust the wrong people.

Hilarious just the same.




Wayne County, Michigan officials reported this weekend that long-time Detroit Democrat Representative John Conyers didn't submit enough signatures to qualify for the ballot this year.

Authorities say Conyers was 400 signatures short of having enough to qualify to run for re-election. Many of the signatures were thrown out because some of his signature-gatherers were not registered to vote in Michigan as required by law.

At 84 years old, he should be retired anyway. I really hope we enact a restriction on term limits to the US Congress, that way we can more easily weed out the bad apples.

I don't know why you find this humorous... But the reason the signatures didn't qualify is because one guy who collected them was not a registered voter at the time that he collected them.

If that's a rule, then Conyers blew it. He is appealing the

If politicians had to take a hair follicle drug test even more of them would fail.

Only wusses test hair follicles.

Michigan huh. Guess they'll have to find someone else soon anyway.

I think politicians should be required to take drugs.

They would have much more peaceful and tolerant attitudes if they did.

And nothing would get done. Which, for the government, is a good thing.

Wait......who's going to step up and take over the "chief pontificator" role during congressional hearings. Conyers provided me many hours of entertainment trying to make any sense of whatever point he was trying to make during CSpan covered hearings.

I just don't know if anyone can step into those shoes!!!!

Dems da rules though!

Maybe Conyers has had it. Maybe he set this petition thing up himself?

His criminal wife just got out of prison last year.

Maybe he wants to "retire" without shame.

Monica Conyers finishes her prison time in Detroit corruption case

And maybe they've got some goods on Him too.

What you said:

What the article said:

So which is it? I know you're smart. I know you wouldn't try and tie in some voter-fraud mumbo-jumbo with this.

Glad you are concerned about voter fraud. That is a serious offence. I am sure you will support a modern voting system, with full animosity, and, inability for any votes to be counterfeited, allowing for total transparency?

He's retiring. He's not running. Already announced and was applauded for service from fellow congressmen.

What is the population of his district these days?

Convicted felons, muslims that obozo brought in as "refugees", chinese that bought property at bargain basement prices? Are there any legitimate american citizens with voting priveleges there anymore?
