Say it ain't so, Madame Governor!




Let me see if I have this right:
  • MI State Police leases headquarters on MSU campus for $1 per year (in a nice facility)

  • They don't want to move

  • Gov. says MSU wants the land back

  • MSU says "no we don't"

  • Gov. authorizes $117 project for new HQ downtown

  • Her buddy (and contributor) gets NO-BID contract

  • New building to be erected on a flood plain

  • Her buddy gets $45 million payout, state pays his taxes
  • I have a letter from the administration that says "we don't give no-bid contracts"

Sound incredible? Watch the Channel 7 Detroit report at the link above. They say it's all true!

OH yea we really need a tax increase. It this is just one very small example of her way of keeping down spending then why in the name of all that is holy would we give her any more money to spend.

Passing this tax increase as far as I am concerned would make about as much sense as giving sex addict your credit card and turning him loose in a house of prostitution.

(I cleaned that one up)
