Michigan Felon Politician Ban Amendment, Proposal 2

A "YES" vote would bar any officeholder convicted of a felony involving deceit and fraud from holding public office for 20 years.

According to reports the amendment would extend an existing 20-year ban on election of legislative officials who have been convicted of felonies involving "breach of public trust." The proposed amendment would broaden the ban to local and state elective offices and would specify "break of public trust" as including dishonesty, deceit and fraud.

How will you vote on November 2nd?

Against. The Michigan Penal Code is archaic.

Example: Write a bad check for $200 or more at a retail outlet and you're charged with a felony. When its all said and done, you'll walk away with a misdemeanor, if that.

Take a $10 item from a store or building, and you're charged with a felony and guess what ... if you're convicted, you're a felon, and you may never get that erased from your record.

Have a felony on you record, no matter how slight, and try to get it erased or forgiven.

Not in any court in Michigan.

Michigan's penal code is archaic.

AMEN!

It sometimes amazes me how some people complain about issues such as the $10 theft when they shouldn't be stealing anything anyway. Also, if a potential politician overspends or can't balance a simple checkbook, would you really want him/her in office running your government on a bigger scale?

The point is many that write cold checks are stealing too, but they don't do time.
One could label this the Marion Barry law. Going to have to think on this one. Seem on the surface as more style than substance.

The proposal doesn't go far enough.

But we have to look at who "desensitized" us in the first place to understand the opposition.
Clinton as an example or Barry Frank

Seems to me that 'writing a bad check' can be curbed IF people get overdraft protection.
There's a thought!

A crime is still aa crime no matter what name you use to describe it......sticky fingers get you in trouble.

Exactly ... its easy for you to say that because you own nothing, never will, and spend you're entire life living on the internet in your mother's basement on a mattress in the corner, stealing a stream hear and there..

Hahah.. Gizz (and all your other Aliases) is good isn't it? Right? Suck it up.

It is time to prosecute some of our local politicians. This is a way to keep them out of office. Use the Federal Law since the state laws are ignored and the current state system is selective. US District Court here we come!
