Attorney General Bill Schuette is scheduled to announce criminal charges Thursday arising out of the investigation of allegedly fraudulent petitions submitted in the failed attempt to qualify former U.S. Rep. Thad McCotter for the ballot.

Multiple defendants will face both felony and misdemeanor charges in the case, according to a person familiar with the 11 a.m. announcement.

It remained unclear whether McCotter himself was a target in the probe.

State elections officials said petition signatures submitted by McCotter’s campaign were riddled with duplications and other irregularities, leaving him far short of the number of valid signatures needed to appear on the ballot.

5. At least one MI politician crook will answer

The GOP just re-elected Roy Schmidt in yesterday's primary. He is a turncoat piece of shit who was in cahoots with Jase Bolger, Speaker of the House. I would link the story but I just got this phone and don't know how to cut &paste yet. Sorry. I think I am showing my age. Just Dogpile Roy Schmidt for the whole sordid story. And Bolger is the jackass who kicked the women off the House floor for saying vagina and vasectomy. Asshole.
