ALL ICING, NO CAKE
Michigan Attorney General candidate and state Senator Tonya Schuitmaker’s (R-Mattawan) attack on House Speaker Tom Leonard (R-DeWitt) for apparently not doing enough to oppose Common Core in Michigan, appears to be a case of the pot calling the kettle black. In a campaign video paid for by Schuitmaker, she questions whether Leonard – who also is running for attorney general – is “all hat and no cattle” because he hasn’t sponsored a bill to repeal Common Core and allowed a voice vote on its passage in the House in 2013. The southern phrase is curious considering it was Schuitmaker who gaveled in a voice vote on the bill in the Senate while giving her support to the bill. The ad, while great sizzle for the campaign trail, has no steak.
