Cocktails & Popcorn: How Many More Michigan Election Extortion Racket Phone Calls Do The Feds Have?

Quickly, pull out the abortion & a cross
skit and grab your cocktails!
They always fall for that
Golly Gee Whiz!

If the feds have a phone call recorded between Larry who was representing his rogue ass crew in the Legislature and an unidentified union official soliciting bribes to his political campaign from his public office, well, that sounds like sorta like an extortion racket to me.

And the union was complicit?

That is insurrection.

Hold on, I am not done.

So, you mean to tell me that laws were passed and enacted in Michigan through a complex financial fraud scheme to fund political campaigns to further foreign corporate interests by stealin' the children, the land and the votes, like that Emergency Manager Law that launched such memorable rackets like:

  • Foreclosure Crisis;
  • Detroit Water Shutoffs;
  • Detroit Bankruptcy;
  • Detroit Grand Bargain;
  • Auto Industry Bail Out;
  • Flint Water Crisis;
  • Gerrymandering;
  • Election Fraud;
  • Over 10 Years of Michigan Child Welfare System Federal Monitoring; and,
  • much, much more death and destruction!

I am in utter shock.

Well, not really.

I am in just in a natural shock that no one has yet to figure out the statistical likelihood that the feds have lots and lots more phone calls recorded with lots and lots of similar substance in interfering in elections, but hey, what do I know?

I know everybody gets wiretaps!

Feds: Phone call recorded between indicted lawmaker, union

The Federal Bureau of Investigation plans to use information from a phone call between indicted Rep. Larry Inman and the union representative from whom he is alleged to have solicited political contributions in its case against the Traverse City Republican.

Investigators seized Inman’s cellular phone during a search of his residence Aug. 1, 2018, nearly two months after they recorded a phone call between Inman and the union representative on June 19, 2018, according to a Friday court filing.

Inman was indicted last week on allegations that he attempted to sell his vote last year on a repeal of Michigan's prevailing wage law.

Inman ended up voting to repeal the law, which had guaranteed union wages and benefits for workers on government-funded construction projects. The Republican-led House and Senate both approved the measure, and it became law.

Prosecutors could use information from the phone call, text messages, bank records and statements to media in building their case against Inman. They also possess written records of interviews Inman gave to the FBI, Aug. 1, Oct. 16, Oct. 17 and Dec. 7.

A federal grand jury indicted Inman on charges of bribery, extortion and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Prosecutors allege Inman attempted to sell his vote to the Michigan Regional Carpenters and Millwrights union by pressuring the union to make political donations to himself and 11 other lawmakers ahead of the June 2018 vote.

House leaders have asked him to resign. They removed him from the GOP caucus and all committee assignments. Inman has denied the allegations and refused to resign.

He has not been to House session since the indictment was filed May 15, but is still able to take part in voting on legislation and continues to receive his $71,685 annual salary.
