LANSING – The Michigan Democratic Party today released a new video that highlights recent newspaper editorials that have applauded the one-person grand jury investigation into House Speaker Jase Bolger, Rep. Roy Schmidt and others for recruiting fake candidate Matt Mojzak to run against Schmidt, helping Mojzak to file a fraudulent candidate affidavit and then covering up their involvement in the scheme.
“The Bolgergate issue is not just an issue for voters in Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer. “This is an issue that’s important for voters all across Michigan, and these editorials, as well as the slew of editorials that have called for Speaker Jase Bolger to step down from leadership, show just that. This grand jury investigation is crucial to restoring the trust of the people of Michigan in their leaders in Lansing.”
The video highlights recent editorials in the following newspapers:
- Grand Rapids Press/Kalamazoo Gazette, Schmidt-Bolger deserve grand jury investigation;
- Lansing State Journal, Grand jury right step in election case;
- Livingston County Daily Press and Argus, Republicans wrong to cry foul about Michigan House campaign investigation;
- Toledo Blade, Bringing it on themselves.
