Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) Fails To Qualify For Primary Ballot

The Hill reports “Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) won’t appear on the Democratic primary ballot after failing to submit enough valid signatures, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said on Tuesday.

“It is my determination that in accordance with the current laws and statutes of the State of Michigan, the nominating petitions filed by Congressman John Conyers, Jr. are insufficient to allow his name to appear on the August 5, 2014 Primary Ballot,” Garrett said in a statement.

The decision means Conyers may have to run as a write-in candidate if he wants to keep a seat he’s held for five decades.” Read more HERE.

On March 26, 2007, Due Process Defenders, a group comprised of multiple organizations across this nation, working in tandem to address the overwhelming of ongoing judicial misconduct and political corruption, delivered to Congressman John Conyers and Senator Patrick Leahy, more than 1500 pages of evidence involving criminal acts by “officers of the court’ or government officials. This was totally ignored!

It appears the people of Michigan have had enough of him too!

Thank you Michigan!

  1. Thank you Dottie* re: ” Conyers’s Democratic primary opponent, pastor Horace Sheffield III, challenged the validity of the incumbent’s signatures. The clerk ruled that since two of his petition-gatherers weren’t registered voters in Michigan, as required under state law, the signatures he obtained didn’t count.

    Conyers submitted 2,000 signatures, needing 1,000 valid ones. After the challenges, he had 592.

    Legal challenges to the petition-gathering rule are likely, though. The American Civil Liberties Union has already challenged that law in federal court, saying it’s unconstitutional to require signature-gatherers to be registered voters. “

  2. P.S. Either way of whether he gets back in or not, what is happening to these “more than 1500 pages of evidence”? of in what forum, if any, is there to be what? A legislative decision? Here’s the top of my e-mail to send to her: ” ** Thank you Taffy Rice, of e-mail: taffyrice at mindsopring dot com Tel. 770-605-5921 for your 2-page report at: of: “Americans have their homes, children, livelihood, and liberty literally stolen in the total absence of due process” of me sending you a copy of my e-mail of yesterday @ 2:26 p.m. of my comment and more to the nh-seacoast-liberty about The Hage case of New Mexico. You may add my New Hampshire case to the list to Congress for whatever good it will do of I have no idea other than to guess that of by the 14th Amendment of with-out “due process of law” by state statutes as proven that somehow the State government then doesn’t get any more Federal Funds until they are corrected? “

    • These cases were brought to the Judiciary Committee – Conyers and Leahy – in 2007 when Rod Class, Carl and others went to DC. The committee did nothing!

      • What were they asked? or like in New Hampshire here by Article 32 in our Bill of Rights, “instructed” to do? as public servants. Was there like what the plaintiff party in court here does of like present that “Proposed Decree’? in writing of for the judge (or in this case, the Committee Members) to sign. Sort of like what we “thought” of when we aired our grievances to the N.H. House Judiciary Committee as examples of wrongs to be righted, of “thinking” that The Executive Director” Nina Gardner, of The RSA Ch. 494:1-7 whoi heard such, of taking mental notes only(?) would take it to its next step, of like procedural corrections to be dealt with by them, of she in all her 18 years there never provided the Council with ANY “Annual Report”, of luckily now with the new Executive Director of Chris(topher) Keating, of on Tue., June 10th at their next quarterly meeting in Concord, N.H. (his 2nd as Director) he promised me by phone about a week ago and after I donated a $dollar to the cause, of he would put these RSA 494:3,VI “forums” of Public Hearings on the Agenda as item #___ for them to talk about AND schedule as the first one in almost two decades!!

      • They were asked to address this and investigate.
