13. Gary has bent the truth about his election record.
Edited on Wed Dec-05-07 07:00 PM by maddogesq
I agree that Gary has run successfully for office. True, He had a SOLID Democratic majority in that Senate district that includes Pontiac, Southfield, Oak Park, Berkley, Southfield Twp. Bloomfield Twp is the odd one because it's generally the strong Repub area. He probably had the strongest Democratic State Senate area OUTSIDE of Wayne County. Consider how well Aldo did in 3 election cycles, despite monumental odds. Now that's an achievement to brag about! Gary says that his constituents say that he was the first Dem State Senator since the Civil War to represent them. This is true for BLOOMFIELKD Twp. but not for the cities I listed above. Aldo is the first Dem in STATE HISTORY to win the 37th.

Like much of Gary's statements it's sort of true. When he polled elected Dem officials
for support and they asked if any one else was running, he said "nobody else
is running". When asked "Is Nancy running?" He said "NO!" even thoughhe had TWO conversations with Nancy and she told him she was going to run. That to mee is as egregious as you can get!
