Michigan Republican Party hires Justin Zatkoff

The Michigan Republican Party has hired Justin Zatkoff, who is embroiled in controversy for possible state and federal campaign finance violations in his role as statewide College Republicans chairman, to work as a Victory ‘08 field representative in the crucial battleground of northern Oakland  County.

Zatkoff has faced allegations of illegal campaign finance activity, immoral behavior (including posing semi-naked for sexually explicit photos, which can be seen at http://leoninjustin.blogspot.com/), corruption, and even filing a false police report (Zatkoff got drunk underage at the University of Michigan just before the 2006 election, when he was a DeVos for Governor intern, and his friends beat him up, but he was too embarrassed and claimed he was assaulted by a mob of pro-affirmative action supporters).

Zatkoff’s school newspaper at the University  of Michigan did a comprehensive investigation and concluded, in an editorial, that he is a disgrace to the GOP and should resign. You can read the investigation at http://www.michiganreview.com/news/2008/04/01/Features/Republicans.Struggle.With.Zatkoff-3293275.shtml

And in a weird twist of events, Zatkoff even threatened to sue Michigan Republican Party Chairman Saul Anuzis after scores of College Republicans were leaving the organization and pleading with Anuzis to remove Zatkoff as chairman.

Zatkoff's poor leadership resulted in the College Republicans at the University  of Detroit-Mercy, Michigan  State University, Kalamazoo College and even his own school, the University  of Michigan, to quit the GOP because they didn't want to serve under him.
