Macomb County Republican lays marker on Macomb vs. Up North crazyfest

by: Eric B.

Thu Dec 05, 2013 at 16:30:00 PM EST

We return to the burning question of which part of the state has the batshit craziest Republicans with a new claim on behalf of Macomb County.

A Macomb County Republican Party official who was bounced from his post as the West Bloomfield Township deputy treasurer after a tumultuous first week on the job has filed suit, claiming he was improperly fired after having his pay arbitrarily cut by 43 percent.

In a Macomb Circuit Court lawsuit, Jared Maynard alleges that his firing was a breach of contract, a violation of his right to discuss personal matters in a closed session, a result of him acting as a whistleblower, and in retaliation for his Republican politics.

This comes on this week's revelation that Doug Sedenquist, the Up North Tea Party Republican charged in Wisconsin in relationship to an armed standoff with police, is facing new charges for sending threatening messages over the Internet that include extortion. But, word on the street is that he will be bounced from his seat on the state central committee at its next meeting. No doubt, this act will be correctly interpreted by other Tea Party people as an attempt by the reviled Republican Establishment to silence the True Patriots within the party.

I was
I was going to say I was surprised to find that the West Bloomfiled government - all Democrats, I believe - would hire someone so publically partisan, until I saw the name of Teri Weingarden, and then it all started to make sense.

Either she has consistently been in over her head, and this is just part of her pattern of incompetence, or she's not really a Democrat, and she's been able to fool a lot of people.  Everyone seems to have known Maynard was a turd.  The problem is less with him than it seems to be with Weingarden.

The Township board has asked the Governorn to remove her
WXYZ reports.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!
