Diane Hathaway pleads guilty

We note here the latest development in the latest Democratic Party debacle.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A former Michigan Supreme Court justice pleaded guilty Tuesday to bank fraud, eight days after she quit the state's highest court in a scandal involving a huge mortgage and property in Michigan and Florida.

Diane Hathaway, a Democrat, faces 1 1/2 years in prison under a deal with federal prosecutors.

When I ask, again, the rhetorical question of just who the fuck vetted this woman's candidacy, keep in mind that she was hand picked for this race and that her investment was a thoroughly partisan affair. As far as Diane Hathaway goes, the Democratic Party lashed itself to her and whatever fortune brought her.

I'm waiting for the shoes to drop on Bob Ficano
Fortunately, Ficano's troubles weren't much of a factor dragging statewide Dems down last year. But I'd really rather not go into 2014 having to justify his continued presence in public office, running for reelection as Wayne County Executive.

I suppose it'll require Kwame-level drama -- perhaps the discovery that Ficano had been canoodling and "sexting" with Turkia Mullin while she jumped from the County to the Airport Authority with that infamous $200K "AttaGirl" payoff -- before he feels the need to step down.

Our elected officials sure are keeping the Feds busy with investigations...
