Log Cabin Republican accuses Bill Schuette of having Goat Killer's back behind the scenes

by: Eric B.

Fri Dec 13, 2013 at 13:46:17 PM EST

Chad Selweski has a blog post today that poses a question: Why did Bill Schuette, Michigan's finest legal mind, dodge three questions about Goat Killer's latest anti-gay tirade the other day?

In an interview with The Macomb Daily the other day, Schuette was asked three times if he is disturbed by the recent bigoted remarks by Agema – or the Republican National Committeeman’s homophobic online post in March -- and three times Schuette dodged the question.


We have a possible answer to that question, courtesy an email forwarded to me that was originally written by Joe Sylvester, a Log Cabin Republican and former conservative blogger.

Why is it that Dave Agema see's the need to randomly skewer people in the most distasteful way imaginable using junk science from the early 90's and fabricating stories about his time with American Airlines?

Why is Bill Schuette's guy, Matt Hall working to stop any action on State Committee that could tell Dave Agema that he is going too far? Does Mr. Schuette endorse Agema's lies and insults?

 Michigan's finest legal mind does have a dog in this fight, mind you. If he comes down too harshly on Goat Killer's anti-gay tirade, it'll raise uncomfortable questions when he has to go defend the discriminatory way the state treats homosexuals.

Speaking of which, for all you media types, here's a fun question: If Rick Snyder, Randy Richardville and Jase Bolger are so damned disgusted by homophobic comments, why aren't they leading the charge to overturn Michigan's same sex marriage ban and repeal the discriminatory legislation they voted for and signed into law? How long does Jase Bolger require to conclude that the Elliot-Larsen Act is in need of expanding?

Schuette (0.00 / 0)
Tangentially related, and I was pretty shocked by this, but PPP's latest poll of state-wide races showed Bill Schuette and Mark Totten - one of our guys's running for AG that no one has ever heard of - in a statistical tie.  I was actually expecting this to be the last of the state-wide offices to be competitive, and there it is.  Do you know how happy I'd be if Schuette was defeated?  Of all the state-wide hacks currently in office, he is easily the hackiest.

In Midland, he's widely seen as a "local boy done good" (0.00 / 0)
which I guess shouldn't be surprising.  When my daughter was in high school, I'd often see him at parent-teacher conferences, and people were always running up to him to shake his hand.  I'm sorry to say I never took the opportunity to say anything to him.  But, other than saying "you suck!", I really didn't know what to say, and that seemed an obnoxiously rude thing to say, particularly since he was always pleasant to me.

He and Dave Camp are both exceedingly pleasant people (4.00 / 1)
I talked to Dave Camp several times as a college journalist and met both of them at different times when they came to editorial boards. Nice, personable -- if not bland -- people.

It's what they do that's so awful.

It's why (0.00 / 0)
It's why unless someone is openly repugnant and contemptous of human contact (cough Dan Benishek cough), I try not to concentrate on the person.  You can be a pleasant person and still do horrible, horrible things.

Michigan's "finest legal mind"?

Running joke (0.00 / 0)
Just like calling Agema "Goat Killer."

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