Michael Saari, a candidate for Michigan’s 15th District state Senate seat, currently held by Mike Kowall, has opted to drop out of the race following statements he made about Ingham County Judge Rosemarie Aquilina. The judge became a highly visible figure in the Larry Nassar MSU case and gained attention for condemning the disgraced doctor during his sentencing. Saari, considered a fringe candidate, was quoted in one media account as calling himself a “shoe-in” for the state Senate seat, later put his foot in his mouth when he called the judge a “feminazi” and questioned how she would respond if her husband requested a particular sex act. Saari said a short time later he was dropping out of the race.
