KARMA’S A BITCH
In what we hope will be one of our last items about the Maddock family, Milford-based state Republican Representative Matt (Mad Dog) Maddock appears to have finally set himself on fire. Last term he was bounced from the Republican caucus for reportedly leaking party secrets to others outside the caucus, breaking a cardinal rule. The caucus ban left him further isolated as he was plotting to be some big-cheese in the House if the GOP retained control – which they failed to do. So now as the Democrats are in control, Maddock was one of three votes against House Speaker Joe Tate (D-Detroit), a vote that generally is unanimous. So when it came time to dole out committee assignments, Tate created a new panel – Housing – and stuck Maddock there only as a member. Ouch!
