State Rep Bruce Rendon finishes his time in Lansing at the end of 2016 due to term limit rules. That means the 103rd district will have a new state representative in 2017. As of this week, The Republican candidate for the office is charged with Medicaid fraud, Medicare fraud, insurance fraud, and criminal sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 16.
Vijay Kumar of West Branch is a physical therapist with five clinics in Northern Michigan. His now deleted campaign page on Facebook contains glowing recommendations from locals; including endorsements from local officials like Bob Bennett, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Roscommon County, and Ronald Vaughn, Chief of Rose City Area Fire Department. There’s even a picture of him with Ronna Romney McDaniels, the new Michigan GOP Chair.
You may be thinking Kumar’s career as a Republican politician running for the 103rd state “Districk” is over. Hardly. Republicans love electing criminals to public office because it doesn’t matter how much of a low life they are, they serve a higher purpose enforcing “conservative values” in government. GOP candidates can do all the horrible things they want, it’s us liberals who are immoral.
2016 is going to be so much fun.
