Brian Dickerson: Who's secret sugar daddy to Oakland court challengers?

We don't publish rumors, so let's stick with what we know for sure:

We know some anonymous donor is trying to buy himself a couple of seats on the Oakland County Circuit Court.

We know he's dishonest.

We know he's a coward.

We know he's prepared to spend upward of $1.2 million on behalf of two little-known candidates who have made themselves scarce on the campaign trail and appear to have raised little or no campaign funds of their own.

Carley and Rollstin both work for Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette. Neither has made many public appearances since a political action committee bankrolled entirely by three conservative GOP donors based in Pennsylvania, Oregon and Virginia paid for the collection of petition signatures and other organizing expenses earlier this year. And neither participated in a videotaped candidates forum sponsored by the Oakland County League of Women Voters, the Oakland County Bar and the Free Press earlier this month.

But Carley and Rollstin are likely to get some name recognition on the strength of a $1-million-plus TV ad buy placed by a couple of opaque, Virginia-based outfits called Americans for Job Security and the Judicial Crisis Network.

1. I'm not in Oakland County, but I Like To Know

 

Shutte does not impress me as AG, nor as a human being. He bears watching.
