Connecting the Political Dots of “Corruption with Cronyism” Taxpayers Lose

The voting citizens of Michigan need to wake up to the fact they are being taken by both factions of the “Party of One” and wake up fast! A Party of One

An example, one of many, is the new Senate building when the main beneficiary of the financial gain is going to a Snyder appointee Ron Boji and his Boji Group.

I am offering up a lesson on connecting the political dots for those that might not understand the political process of cronyism and corruption at the expense of us taxpayers.

OK, now follow along with me on this. Ron Boji is a huge Republican and Democrat donor. He was mentioned in the FBI probe into former Democrat Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano. Boji Ficano

Mr. Boji threw political fundraisers for ‘ole Democrat Bob at his Orchard Lake Mansion in his West Bloomfield Township home.

We have Governor Snyder appointing his buddy Ron to not one, but two unelected state authorities, the state Transportation Commission and the Michigan Strategic Fund.

The new Senate building is being floated by selling “Bonds” to finance this purchase through the Michigan Strategic Fund which is just one of many tentacles of the “failed” MEDC.

For those that may not understand the definition of “Bonds” when the state of Michigan (we taxpayers) sells or floats these Bonds the buyer of these Bonds are in fact the lenders and we taxpayers are the borrowers.

Here is where it gets interesting a last minute contribution to Snyder’s “Safe Roads Yes” campaign promoting that huge tax increase on us taxpayers know as proposal one was made by…you guessed it Ron Boji. A Boji Snyder

So ‘ole Ron gets a huge financial gain from us taxpayers by selling a property to the state (new senate building) for much more than the appraised value then gives a little back to Snyder’s tax hike campaign. So in essence’s us taxpayers you know the 80% that voted against that proposal donated to Snyder’s tax hike campaign.

Are we connecting the political dots yet? We taxpayers are being “fleeced” by the very ones we elect to serve and represent us!   

As long as the voters remain content on having the political wool pulled over their eyes this will continue unabated. So the next time you go to that voting booth remember….the Party you have been casting your vote for has two factions, the Democrat faction and the Republican faction that both reside in that “Party of One.” Vote wisely my fellow citizens of Michigan.

Note: There was no assessment done on the building prior to the purchase. Lansing’s assessor William Fowler says the Senate drastically overpaid for this building owned by Republican donor and Snyder appointee Ron Boji and his Boji Group.

William Fowler told Channel 7’s Ross Jones that the $41 million purchase price isn’t supported by the current real estate market in downtown Lansing. “Based on everything you know, is this building anywhere near worth $41 million?” asked Channel 7’s Ross Jones.

Fowler says that his office currently has Capitol View assessed at about $12 million; a figure he says is closer to what it’s actually worth.  Were it to be built brand new today, his office estimates it would cost just under $22 million.

Another Crony Gov. Rick Snyder Appointee Target of FBI Probe

                                                    “The Boji Files” Boji Ficano Snyder Richardville
The Snyder administration scandals’ starring his appointee’s is just unconscionable. All this corruption revolves around real-estate, real estate development and construction with our legislators in Lansing. The list is like the energizer bunny it just keeps going and going.
The “Friends and Family” program and the “Business Buddies” fund is alive and well in Lansing and it’s definitely not in the best interest of the citizens of Michigan. Those you elect to serve you are serving the lobbyist and special interest group’s best interest not yours.

Campaign Fundraising has very “Questionable” Union Donations to MIGOP Republicans

Rebranding the GOP

So you think your voting for a Republican? Better check the candidate your casting your vote for because if you don’t you may not get what you think! This statement says it all. Amber McCann, spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe said:

“It’s not a shock to see large contributions from “Unions” like the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Operating Engineers Local 324, and the Regional Council of Carpenters to the Democrats.” Oh Really?

Amber McCann actually cut her teeth in politics in former Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm’s administration.  “When I was interviewing for Senator Richardville’s press secretary position they asked me how I knew I was a Republican, McCann recalls. And she said, “My dad told me that growing up.” My dad is a guy that likes to watch Fox News.
