Regarding the Michigan Petition Scandal.

To correct the woman from New Mexico's recollection:

Congressman Thaddeus McCotter's (Michigan 11th Congressional District) reelection team submitted something over 1,800 petitiion signatures, of which some 240 were determined to be real by the Secretary of State, and the remaining were deemed questionable.

Issues with the remaining signatures included having duplicate petitions with the same signatures, signature lines which appeared to have the date cut and paste into them, and petitions which were xeroxed instead of being original print copies.

McCotter's petitions are being reviewed by the Board of Canvassers, and may be under investigation for a fraud charge.

Pete Hoechstra is not involved in the matter.
