Rep. John Conyers Is Going Away

Seems after all these years of being an anti-gun legislator, he forgot that the rules for running for office still apply.
Authorities say Conyers was 400 signatures short of having enough to qualify to run for re-election. Many of the signatures were thrown out because some of his signature-gatherers were not registered to vote in Michigan as required by law.
Guess all the corpses in Detroit will have to find someone else to vote for this season.

Rep. McCotter from Michigan had a similar problem in 2012 when he didn't make the primary ballot because his staffers bumbled the signature collection.

This probably won't stand; the Supreme Court ruled that signature gatherers don't have to be registered voters in Buckley v. American Constitutional Law Foundation.

Good for a giggle, though.
