Jase Bolger should resign as Speaker

Former Democratic Rep. Roy Schmidt plotted with Republican House Speaker Jase Bolger to switch parties a moment before the filing deadline and outsource the competition to a candidate of their choosing: his son’s friend. In effect, robbing Michigan’s 76th District of their voice.

Bill Forsyth, the Republican prosecutor, wrote that the ploy “was clearly intended to undermine the election and to perpetrate a ‘fraud’ on the electorate.” Adding insult to injury, he declared, “As a Republican elected official, I am embarrassed and offended by what transpired.”

This is unacceptable. Sign our petition calling on Jase Bolger to resign as Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives.

Jase Bolger should resign as Speaker!

Dear Speaker Jase Bolger -

We, the undersigned, call on House Speaker Jase Bolger to do the right thing and immediately resign as Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives. Your latest ploy "was clearly intended to undermine the election and to perpetrate a 'fraud' on the electorate." This is unacceptable. We strongly urge you to resign as Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives and start focusing on protecting Michigan's middle class.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
