From the Oakland Press
The former political director of Oakland County’s Democratic Party pleaded no contest Monday to charges related to voter fraud.
Jason Bauer, 27, is scheduled to return to court in January for sentencing.
Bauer and co-defendant Michael McGuinness, the former chairman of the Oakland County Democratic Party, were charged earlier this year with three counts of uttering and publishing and three counts of perjury. Both have now pleaded no contest, which not an admission of guilt but treated as such for sentencing purposes.
Bauer was also charged with three misdemeanor counts of violating the Michigan Notary Act.
Authorities accused the two men of fraudulently entering the names of three people as “Tea Party” candidates for county commission and state Senate seats to appear on the November 2010 ballot
I wonder how far up this thing goes. Of all the people involved in this scheme, only two of them got caught, and that's due to the forgery. Dumb. Breakdown - Takedown - You're busted!
