Today we are releasing the full Michigan State Police report investigating the election fraud scheme hatched by Speaker Jase Bolger and Rep. Roy Schmidt.
You can view a PDF of the full +2,000 page report here (embedded below): http://bit.ly/Bolgergate. It includes a narrative of the investigation and countless text messages sent between Bolger, Schmidt, Rep. Lisa Posthumus Lyons, Attorney General Bill Schuette, and multiple Lansing lobbyists.
There seems to be no end in sight to the scandal known as “Bolgergate.”
Earlier this week, the Ingham County Circuit Court appointed Judge Rosemarie Aquilina to lead a one-person grand jury investigation of Bolger and Schmidt.
Today the Grand Rapids Press and Kalamazoo Gazette co-wrote an editorial supporting the investigation –
“Dirty politics: It is something Schmidt and Bolger know well. Dirty politics — as in coordinating Schmidt’s last-minute party switch and recruiting a fake opponent in an attempt to hijack the 76th District state House election — is what got them into this mess in the first place… Michigan residents still have legitimate questions: Who knew what, and when? Who helped whom, and how? Were any laws broken?”
We’re committed to holding politicians like Schmidt and Bolger accountable.
