One-person grand jury to investigate alleged election-rigging in GOP house race

Responding to a petition by the Michigan Democratic Party, a majority of the Ingham County Circuit Court judges has authorized a one-person grand jury investigation of alleged election-rigging by House Speaker Jase Bolger and Rep. Roy Schmidt.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina will conduct the probe of the two House Republicans and Matt Mojzak. Mojzak was allegedly recruited as a straw candidate to run a write-in campaign as a Democrat in Schmidt’s district after Schmidt made an 11th hour jump from the Democratic Party to the GOP.

Mojzak was allegedly offered money to stay in the race after it was learned that he couldn’t satisfy the residency requirements to run in Schmidt’s district.

We blogged some of the meaty details last month when the story first broke.
