Michigan Rejects Charges/Michael Moore

Fri Oct 08, 2004 1:00 pm

A request by Michigan Republicans that filmmaker Michael Moore be charged with violating election law has found little sympathy among county prosecutors.

The state Republican Party asked prosecutors in four counties to file charges against Moore for offering underwear and food to college students in exchange for a promise to vote. State law prohibits a person from contracting with another for something of value in exchange for agreeing to vote.


Well the GOP has egg on its face once again.

You want to bet that if Burdick or Koop run for higher office the state party will leave them high and dry in retribution?

Too funny!

Burdick said he chooses "to devote our resources to prosecuting those who are delivering cocaine to our young people rather than underwear."

Maybe he can now add...."or those Americans smoking Cuban cigars in other countries"...

Yes, a sleezy move by the Michigan Republicans. But then again, Moore is as phoney as a $3 bill.

He should put his money where his mouth is and move back to Flint from the Upper East side of NYC. And how I wish that fool would stop wearing MSU and Detroit Tiger hats.

Stretch8, Moore does live in Flint now. He still has a pad in NYC but he and his wife call Flint home, again, mainly cos their daughter is studying there.

Although if he still lived in NYC, I don't see why that would be a problem.
