McCotter Watch

by John J. Miller

The decline and fall of former Republican congressman Thaddeus McCotter continues:

Four staffers in U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter’s office will face charges in the petition signature scandal that led to the abrupt end of his decade in Congress.

Michigan’s attorney general Bill Schuette didn’t have enough evidence to charge McCotter, but he nevertheless made clear McCotter’s responsibility:

Schuette says there was no specific, direct evidence of McCotter’s involvement, but said he was “asleep at the switch” and lacked oversight of his staff, adding he practiced “disgraceful” conduct. But, he added, his office will investigate any further evidence brought forward.

If Republicans lose Michigan’s 11th congressional district in November, these clowns will be the reason why.
