Liberty and Freedom
I would be happy to. The first instance with him was over a local school election bond issue for the sum of $26 million dollars. After a personal visit to the SOS's office and the Bureau of Elections we were told that yes, in fact, major election laws had been broken in order to illegally pass the bond issue by 23 votes. We were told there that the only enforcement arm for the SOS is the Attorney General. So, we wrote to Mr. Cox, outlining every violation that had taken place and he sent us back a limp reply that it was NOT his job and for us to hire a private attorney. To do what, he did not say. Pretty pathetic when the CHIEF law enforcement officer of the state denies that upholding ELECTION law is NOT his job! ( I have this in writing)
The second instance was when we had a rogue Township Supervisor who was costing our township thousands of dollars in nuisance suits and legal fees. His spouse physically attacked people at public meetings and was consequently tried and convicted of assault. There are 2 ways in Michigan to get rid of an elected official, one is by recall, the other by petioning the Governor for removal. We chose to do the 2nd because of limited funds at the time to hold a special recall election. The remainder of our Board voted unanimously to send the evidence to the Governor's office. I personally spoke with the Governor's Chief Counsel, and he assured me they would completely review the packet of evidence we had sent to them and that he would then forward it onto the Attorney General as proscribed by the law. Mr. Cox never even bothered to respond to us. Besides my personal experiences with Mr Cox I also feel he lacks the moral fiber to withstand an onslaught by the democrats as I am sure they will bring up his history of adultery in the context of Republican family values and I also feel he is lacking in ethics since he saw fit to hire 2 spouses of MI supreme court justices to work in his office. Talk about stacking the deck for who appears most often in front of the State Supreme Court!
