Yet, after a Michigan attorney general’s investigation that didn’t produce a motive, a credible timeline, or blame (let alone charges) for nearly two-thirds of the fraudulent signatures, the saboteurs who “cut and pasted,” duplicated, and forged these easily obtained petitions still have not been brought to justice for their public corruption. Why?
To mask their 2012 sabotage, the criminals also forged and planted past “petitions” to throw investigators off their tracks and conceal their real motive.
On June 29, 2012 — a month into the investigation — the AG asked the chief saboteur if he took a bribe to sabotage McCotter. The chief saboteur changed the subject by casually claiming he and another staffer (who vehemently denies it) had “done this before” in 2008.
Then, on July 25, 2012 — almost two months into the investigation — acting on an “anonymous tip,” the AG went to a vacant 2010 campaign headquarters McCotter shared with the Michigan Republican Party and “seized” alleged copies of McCotter campaign petitions from 2002 through 2008.
Finally, on August 13, 2012 — after two-and-one-half months of intense media attention and four days after the AG issued his report — Democratic political consultant Mark Grebner claimed to have the only “images” of all petitions “filed” by McCotter’s 2002-2012 campaigns.
