Looks like, despite her guilty plea in a Federal Corruption trial – Monica Conyers could still be on the ballot come November -
As Nancy Kaffer of Crain’s Detroit first reported, Conyers’ guilty plea didn’t require her name to be taken off the ballot.
So, what if she wins Tuesday’s primary?
If Monica Conyers finishes in the top 18 vote-getters, she will be on the general election ballot in November.
There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it, according to Detroit elections director Daniel Baxter.
Now – if she wins one of the top 10 spots in the general election, Nov 4th – she cannot hold office by law. As such, the City would have to conduct a special election for a vacant seat in the Spring. This is bad news for Detroit, in that if such should come to be – they would have to pay tens of thousands to conduct the election.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Conyers former aide, Sam Riddle has been indicted for his role in another crooked politician case – that of former State Representative, Mary Waters. Riddle is also being considered by prosecutors for an indictment for his role with Conyers.
New Jersey got nothin’ on Michigan!
