Federal Judge Allowing Longtime Democrat Rep. To Run Despite Lacking Required Signatures

Rules are for the ruled, not the rulers:

News broke earlier this month that the second-longest serving member of the House of Representatives would not be able to run for reelection after failing to obtain the required number of signatures on his nominating petitions. In fact, he had less than half of those required.

But the man in question, John Conyers, Jr., a Democrat representing the Detroit area, has proven that rules were meant to be broken, because a federal judge has just decided that Conyers will be allowed to be on the Democratic primary ballot in August, according to: NY Daily News. The decision came hours after Michigan’s Secretary of State declined to put him on the ballot.

This is why no one trusts politicians.

That and commons sense.
