Using the wrong size type face for one word on a petition is grounds to get an entire party thrown off a ballot?In its decision released Monday, the three-member court said the word "the" was not in 24-point bold face type on the petitions as required by law. Michael Hodge, the lawyer representing "The Tea Party," could not immediately be reached Monday evening to say whether he would appeal to the Michigan Supreme Court.
So do you think "The Tea Party" is a nefarious Democratic ploy to split the GOP? a group of committed independent-minded people? Genuine candidates capriciously removed from the ballot by a conservative court to protect GOP interests?
