Louis Farrakhan Supporter, John Conyers, Back on Ballot: Used Non-Registered Voters, Oh Well…

Remember the 2012 presidential elections when Republican presidential candidates Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich failed to receive the required 10,000 signatures for a ballot placement in the important state of Virginia? They did not end up on the ballot, but Democrats in Michigan have better fortunes. Congressman John Conyers, running for yet another opportunity to screw the American people through his congressional privilege, allowed non-registered voters to circulate petitions gathering names for his run, and — the petitions failed to get the required 1,000 VALID signatures. After the INVALID names were removed, Conyers had only about 400 presumed VALID names. The petitions were still circulated by unqualified persons. The Michigan Secretary of State said Conyers’ name would not be on the ballot and cited the state’s “purity of the ballot access process,” but a Detroit federal judge cited Conyers’ “good intentions.” Guess who won.

“The Michigan Election Law is designed to protect the purity of the ballot access process,” the Secretary of State’s review said. “The laws governing this activity place affirmative duties on petition circulators. As evidenced over the past two election cycles, when campaigns fail to comply with the law by executing basic principles of petition circulation, they create their own ‘ballot access crisis’ when their failures are discovered by or brought to the attention of election officials. In this instance, consultant Steve Hood freely admitted that he failed to ensure that the petition circulators he hired to work on Conyers’ campaign were registered to vote.”

And Conners’ “good faith intentions:”

There’s evidence that the failure to comply with the law was a “result of good-faith mistakes that (circulators) believed they were in compliance with the statute,” the judge said. Source: Fox News

A little more detail:

After Conyers’s primary opponent, Reverend Horace Sheffield, challenged the congressman’s ballot petition, election officials discovered that a large number of his campaign’s signatures had been collected by volunteers who weren’t registered Michigan voters, as the law required. Source: National Review Online

Sheffield is a Democrat. He was allegedly arrested and charged with “misdemeanor violence.”

Another example:

In 2012, Michigan Republican representative Thad McCotter was kept off of the ballot because of invalid signatures. McCotter initially pursued a write-in campaign, before eventually dropping the effort and resigning from Congress.

Conyers said he trying not to “smile openly.”

    What would you expect? He is a democrat and no more needs to be said. Most likely had a liberal judge who makes up the law as he goes along.

    What can I say. The democrat party is like a minority job applicant. It doesn’t have to meet the same standards as other privileged parties do. Blacks get a pass because something, something, something. Way to go judge who only has a job because he’s black.

    Democrats can literally murder someone and get away scott free. Obama changes the law at will, to protect who he wants to, on any given day. Impeach him! But instead they will do absolutely nothing.
