If there is one word I can use to describe former Congresscritter and state legislator Mark Schauer, it's Yesman. He is the epidomy of a yesman. He did whatever Granholm, Obama, or Pelosi asked him to do. He talks a game and tries to sound moderate, but when the going gets tough, he goes leftist.
When CCW was an issue in the Michigan House in 99/00, he voted for every bad amendment - including making cars a criminal empowerment zone (that amendment failed), but then voted for the final bill just to say that he wasn't anti-2nd Amendment. Weasel move. He then cosponsored a major gun grab package with Gilda Jacobs that luckily went nowhere.
He supports every pro-abortion measure there is.
He voted for cap and trade in Michigan of all places trying to destroy our industry.
He voted for Obamacare.
He was fined $200000+ in campaign finance violations
He voted for Granholm's income tax increase.
He voted for the Obama Stimulus plan.
This guy would be the return of the Matt Millen of Governors and then some.
