8 time convicted felon easily wins Michigan house race

Democrat Brian Banks, an eight-time convicted felon with a rap sheet spanning several years, on Tuesday handily defeated his Republican opponent in the race to represent Michigan’s first district as a state representative, taking 68 percent of the vote.

Banks’ district includes northeast Detroit, Harper Woods, Grosse Pointe Woods and Grosse Point Shores.

The 35-year-old Banks was convicted of credit card fraud and writing bad checks eight times between 1998 and 2004. His latest conviction came eight years ago, when he was 27 years old.

Nothing matters but the D next to the name.

    Another case in point, Aggie, is Jesse Jackson, Jr., who won almost two-thirds of the vote, despite being treated (in-patient) for bipolar disorder—and being investigated for misuse of campaign funds. One is obviously sympathetic to his struggle, but if he can’t fulfill his duties (and he can’t, or not now), and if he’s persistently under investigation (and he is), why is he there?

    We are so poorly educated and poorly prepared to participate in a democracy. A few generations of lazy parents and it’s all over. We’re there.

    He’s a decade away from being a Presidential nominee
