Detroit Elects 8 time felon to MI House

Well, it is Detroit. Nice to know that multiple felonies are no big deal, but verbal diarrhea is good for a lifetime ban.

Quote
(CBS) DETROIT - The newly elected state assembly in Michigan includes at least one ex-con: Brian Banks, who's been convicted eight times for felonies involving bad checks and credit card fraud, won a seat representing the east side of Detroit, Harper Woods, and the tony Grosse Pointes, CBS Detroit reports..
Banks, 35, was convicted eight times between 1998 and 2004 of writing bad checks and credit card fraud. His slogan was "You can Bank on Banks."

Ironic, no?

The 35-year-old Democrat and lifelong Detroiter, got 68 percent of the vote to Republican Dan Schulte's 32 percent, according to CBS Detroit.

"It's time to elect a leader, with experience and passion, who will fight for you," Banks wrote on his website.
Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2010 that bans anyone convicted of a felony in the last 20 years from running for office - but the caveat is the conviction has to be "related to the person's official capacity while holding any elective office." This was Banks' first run for elected office.

Look what they elected to the White House, a 8 time felon from Detroit should come as no surprise.

There is all the proof you need as to why Detroit has turned into the cesspool it is today.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

OTOH, who in their right minds would WANT to be a politician in that sucking chest wound known as Detroit? Or even Harper Woods?

That shit's on the East Side. The only thing keeping that whole area from going up in flames is the Detroit River.  :whatever:
Adams E2 Euphonium (built in 2017)
Boosey & Co. Imperial Euphonium (built in 1941)
Edwards B454 bass trombone
Bach Stradivarius 42OG tenor trombone
Kanstul 33-T BBb tuba
Shen SB-180 double bass (we're talkin' strings, baby)

I heard it was just because they couldn't find anybody else that wanted the job.  They're having a similarly difficult time finding participants for the live nativity over the holidays. Apparently they have scoured the entire city and can't find a measly 3 wise men, or so much as ONE LOUSY VIRGIN.  :-)

Those are the same kinds of things the anti-Muslim film maker was on probation for, aren't they?

He's a true representative of his constituency, you have to give him that.  I have no sympathy or pity for Detroit, they deserve everything that happens to them.

He definitely has experience at that.

They own it, let it burn.
"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful."

C.S. Lewis

A community may possess all the necessary moral qualifications, in so high a degree, as to be capable of self-government under the most adverse circumstances; while, on the other hand, another may be so sunk in ignorance and vice, as to be incapable of forming a conception of liberty, or of living, even when most favored by circumstances, under any other than an absolute and despotic government.

John C Calhoun, "Disquisition on Government", 1840
