Progress Michigan
Dear The McGlynnCall on Jase Bolger to resign as Speaker

Republican House Speaker Jase Bolger and former
Democratic Rep. Roy Schmidt must think we’re pretty dumb.

A new report from the Republican Kent County Prosecutor found that Bolger and Schmidt hatched a scheme “to undermine the election and to perpetrate a ‘fraud’ on the electorate.” The shady back-room deal called for Schmidt to switch parties at
the last second and recruit a family friend to run as a Democrat, giving Schmidt a free shot at re-election.

Bolger and Schmidt have managed to avoid criminal charges so far, but we can’t let them get away with this clear betrayal of the public trust.

Bill Forsyth, the county prosecutor, declared, “As a Republican elected official, I
am embarrassed and offended by what transpired.”

And so is the rest of Michigan. Call on politician Jase Bolger to resign as Speaker of the House.

Thanks for all you do,

Zack
Pohl and the entire Progress Michigan team

P.S.
Shouldn’t this be illegal? The Republican prosecutor investigating the case
thinks so:

“Incredibly, while it would be illegal to pay a boxer to take a ‘dive,’ or a basketball
player to ‘point-shave,’ it is not currently a crime in Michigan to recruit
someone to run for public office, place them on the ballot at the ‘eleventh
hour’ and essentially pay them to make no effort to win.”
