Stateside Podcast: Michigan GOP turmoil over fraudulent signatures
A political bomb dropped last night in Michigan as the Bureau of Elections recommended half of the Republican candidates for governor not make the primary ballot. That’s because the state agency found tens-of-thousands of fraudulent signatures on five of the 10 candidates’ petitions. And they didn’t have enough valid signatures to make the ballot. The signatures appear to have been fabricated by a small number of people, and not noticed or discarded by the campaigns.
