The other public embarrassment for the weak, ineffective Michigan Republican Party

by: Eric B.

Thu Jan 23, 2014 at 09:59:48 AM EST

The last week, I've asked in a bunch of different places what the Republican Party would do if Goat Killer were caught selling heroin to school children. According to his party's response to the question of what they'd do if he was caught making highly racist, bigoted comments about Muslims and homosexuals was that they would be powerless to remove him from his office. My guess is that if it was heroin and kiddos, the response might be a wee different. Or maybe not. Let's not forget that the Michigan Republican Party actually has someone serving on its central committee who has been accused of multiple felonies on two different occasions and by law enforcement agencies in two states, including pulling a gun on a cop. His name is Doug Sedenquist. In fact, he lodged his support for Goat Killer last night on Facebook.

Yes, Goat Killer, it's about way more than just you. It's also about Doug Sedenquist, the state central committee member twice accused of felonies and stalking, and at least one time where he pulled a gun on cops. If you go away, he's next.

A competent, effective organization would first and foremost find a way to pursue its own best interests by getting rid of people like this. Fortunately for Sedenquist, the Michigan Republican Party has interpreted its own bylaws to say they are powerless to remove public embarrassments from office.

By the way, just skyballing here, what are the odds that this Michigan Republican Party state central committee member twice accused of using a computer to send threatening messages in two states has been politely asked by an officer of the court to stay away from the Internet?
