MARCH OF THE LEMMINGS
The attempted autocratic coup by President Donald Trump to overturn the results of the November election, aided by the Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s last gasp effort with a lawsuit charge at the Republican-dominated U.S. Supreme Court to throw out the November vote results from four states, including Michigan, drew the backing of a number of GOP members of our state’s Congressional delegation and some Republican state Representatives from Oakland County. Signing onto the legal action were Michigan’s U.S. House members Jack Bergman (District 1/Watersmeet), Bill Huizenga (District 2/Zeeland), John Moolenar (District 4/Midland) and Tim Walberg (District 7/Tipton). Fifteen state lawmakers also asked to join the lawsuit, which the Supremes rejected in a one-page unsigned opinion. Among them, John Reilly of Oakland Township and Matt (Mad Dog) Maddock from Milford. Maddock, according to some reports, took it one step further by joining a group that tried (but failed) to enter the Capitol as an “alternate” slate to give the state to Trump during Electoral College voting in mid-December. #sedition or #votersmustremember.
