Communist Congressman John Conyers May Not Be Eligible for Ballot; But Other Guy is Sharpton Clone

By Debbie Schlussel

Congressman John Conyers (D-Communism) may be kicked off the ballot. And it seems some D-Mecca-style hanky panky and back-dating of voter registration forms may have taken place at the Detroit Clerk’s Office.



Alien v. Predator: Conyers & Sheffield Both Sharptonettes

What would you rather have–a senile Communist Congressman who’s been in Congress for half a century . . . or a fat Al Sharpton clone (Detroit Rev. Horace Sheffield)? That’s the choice as it stands in the Democratic Primary Election in John Conyers’ Detroit and Dearbornistan Congressional district. But it appears that there may be no choice at all, as Conyers might be kicked off the ballot . . . and should be.

Conyers needed 1,000 valid signatures on petitions in order to be placed on the ballot. But Michigan law requires that the circulator be a registered voter at the time the petitions are circulated and signed. And the two Conyers staffers who circulated his petitions didn’t register to vote until Monday, April 28th (yes, two days ago), records show. Last night, Detroit’s Clerk, Janice Winfrey, said that the staffers actually registered on December 13th of last year, and that because of a backlog in paperwork, the records weren’t yet reflected. But, now, it turns out that, in fact, the two staffers didn’t register until Monday, well after they circulated the petitions, and that their voter registration records may have been fraudulently, illegally backdated to reflect the December date.

On the video, reporter Rod Meloni (whom I know and who does excellent work) says that Winfrey now claims that her assistant clerk “mistakenly pre-dated” their voter registration applications to December 13th. HUH?? Um, “mistakenly pre-dated”? How does that happen? Do you mistakenly date paperwork you write on April 28th back to December 13th “by mistake” or deliberately in fraud? If you think the former, I have some land to sell you in the middle of the Detroit River.

In question is when Pittman and Pennington actually registered to vote. It’s a seemingly strange technicality but it is Michigan election law. In a partisan election circulators are required to be registered voters at the time they gather the signatures. If not then their signatures are not valid. Pittman and Pennington registered to vote in Detroit. The debate is when.

Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey told Local 4 today and, in fact, produced the records showing they came to the window at her office on Monday afternoon carrying with them mail in voter registrations dated Dec. 13, 2013. Winfrey says the clerk at the window mistakenly entered the December date into the state qualified voter registration database. Winfrey said that information has since been changed to Monday, April 28 in the database and on that basis Pittman and Pennington are not qualified as circulators and their signatures should not count.

I asked her on camera: “By all measure these people were not qualified circulators, correct?” Winfrey: “That is correct because they were registered to vote on Monday, April 28th, 2014.”

Remember, this is Detroit and Wayne County–places as corrupt as Chicagoland and Cook County.

For now, the County Clerk has approved Conyers’ place on the ballot, but I think he’s in jeopardy and will have to run as a write-in. But Sheffield will challenge this, and I think he’ll win, assuming he can prove–and Garrett will honestly admit–that the two petition circulators were not registered to vote at the time they circulated the petitions.

In any event, choosing between Conyers and Sheffield is like choosing between Alien and Predator. You lose either way.

blacks are on their own responsibility
to elect those who serve their best interests
and the country’s best interests

when they ignore that responsibility
they get what they deserve

but everyone else does not deserve it

    Debbie, it would be great if you could help clean up your town

    Predator is the babyface in that match

Maybe in a few years, when she’s old enough, that 11-year-old girl who confronted Mrs. Conyers will decide to run for Congress.

I’ve had a better choice when faced with a decision between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. (I chose the Sea.)

But king barry and eric holder said their isn’t a smidgen of voter fraud in America. Next you are going to ask Mickey Mouse for his ID when he shows up to vote, twice.

On the other hand, Andrew Roberts’ new essay on the debt civilization owes the Jews and the need to support Israel is out today on Kindle. I’d like to know what Debbie thinks of this.

“The Modern Swastika: Fighting Today’s anti-Semitism.”

I see nothing on Debbie’s site on Andrew, who is a non-Jew and a wonderful writer. So, perhaps to introduce.

The wrong side of history and bigoted ways of thinking are dying out with the rise of collective consciousness.

Asian “America” must wrestle with the fact that it does not exist without continued settler colonialism and anti-blackness. I won’t shut up.

    That is a nice bit of rambling Park. I doubt that China will think much about quashing South Korea if it ever crosses its path. Think of that as “Collective Garbage Compaction.”

    suet, please take your SSRI, you are pathetically incoherent, go park your dribble somewhere else

    “Asian “America” must wrestle with the fact that it does not exist without continued settler colonialism and anti-blackness”

    Erm… not much “blackness” in Asia, though. I don’t see S. Korea, China or Japan absorbing the impoverished, diseased and dying from so many African nations, do I?

    Look who’s calling the kettle bigoted.

    Nice word salad, Suuuueeeeeee.

So will there be a Republican running for this seat in November, assuming Conyers gets thrown off the ballot? That is a pretty big assumption, BTW, since I think he thinks he was elected Congressman for life sometime back in the 60’s

This is a choice ?
