This is… endlessly fascinating.
U.S. Rep. John Conyers, No. 2 in seniority in the House, lost his appeal Friday to get on the August primary ballot after Michigan election officials found problems with the Democrat’s nominating petitions.
The Secretary of State’s office affirmed a decision by Detroit-area election officials to keep Conyers off the ballot.
But the decision does not necessarily end Conyers’ 50-year career in Congress as his campaign manager has said Conyers would mount a write-in effort if necessary in the heavily Democratic district.
But I have a serious question: John Conyers is 85 years old. He’s been doing this for fifty years. His district will almost undoubtedly elect another Democrat. Why doesn’t he just… go home and sit in the sun?
