Richard Baird threatens to sue everyone

Everyone saw this yesterday, but I was laboring on deadline and didn't get a chance to post.

Lansing — A top aide to Gov. Rick Snyder is threatening to sue the head of the Michigan State AFL-CIO, warning the labor leader in a telephone message she “better be careful” and “start dealing with facts” about his personal property tax troubles.

Gubernatorial adviser Rich Baird left AFL-CIO President Karla Swift an angry voice message Saturday night in response to a newspaper column she wrote about Baird illegally claiming a double tax exemption on two homes for three years.

This public hissy fit is political drama, of course. There's not a chance in hell he'd win a lawsuit over this for a lot of reasons. But, when everytime your name shows up in the headlines it's because you got caught doing something else underhanded, your toolbox is a bit thin.

Well of course he does!
Lawsuits are only frivolous when filed by someone who is not a Republican, and cheating on your taxes is not really a crime.

If Baird sues people over this
The cases ought to be consolidated for trial before Judge Judy. She'd make mincemeat out of Baird.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

What I'd like to say to "Tricky Dick" Baird
"Have your lawyers talk to my lawyers.  Until then, STFU and stay out of my voice mail and email."

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

Morning motivation:
"Hey, Scott, has Rich Baird tried to harass you lately? No? Then GET TO WORK!!!!!"
