I thought you should know that I just finished reading Tom Wark’s recent post on your unconscionable support of HB6644 late last year. This was a bill that, as far as I am able to discern, was almost completely anti-consumer and anti-competitive, benefitting only the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers.
That you counted the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association as your single largest contributor; that you rammed the legislation through committee in a single day; that you introduced and sponsored the legislation at the end of your last term; and that after exiting the legislature you went on to become a lobbyist representing the very same wholesalers absolutely reeks of back-door dealing, sleaze, graft and corruption.
I’m a fairly cynical person. I thought I was beyond being offended by the depths to which corrupt lawmakers like yourself would stoop to return campaign favors and contributions. I was wrong.
Your utter lack of integrity during your tenure as a legislator has opened up new frontiers of indignation and disgust for me, and for many others. This will be your legacy. One feathered with the fetid stain of sweaty cash and framed by the formless black abyss of your conscience. A fornicatorium of malfeasance and dishonor.
What a sad, sorry waste.
