Former Congressional Aides Charged With Fraud

Members of the former congressman Thad McCotter's staff were charged with fraud for forging ballot petition signatures.


Four staffers of former U.S. Rep. Thad McCotter, R-Livonia were charged today in connection with the false nominating petitions that led to McCotter's departure from Congress.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette described the four as "not simply Keystone Kops running amok … criminal acts were committed."
