Well, genius.. You weren't "Clear" when you

accused Gretchen Whitmer of "money laundering". Disinformation Accusations Much?
Mahalo, lapucelle!

This article doesn't think too highly of Shri Thanedar..


The only thing more absurd than Shri Thanedar’s run for governor is that some people are buying it.

Thanedar is locked in a tight battle for the Democratic nomination with former state Senate Democratic leader Gretchen Whitmer and Abdul El-Sayed, a former Detroit health director who has staked out a more authentic claim to the progressive mantle.

Thanedar has touted himself as a “fiscally savvy” version of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and the “most progressive” Democrat in the primary field.

If there is a liberal box to be checked, Thanedar checks it. Like El-Sayed, he rejects money from corporate political action committees and professes his support for single-payer health care; like Whitmer, he has made a folksy ad about fixing the state’s pothole-ridden roads.

Where Thanedar tries to one-up his competitors is in his personal story. He never misses an opportunity to remind voters that he left poverty in India to become a job-creating entrepreneur in Michigan, that he is a chemist uniquely capable of addressing climate change.

“My colleagues here would do a much better job speaking. But this time, I believe Michigan needs someone who thinks like me,” Thanedar said during a televised primary debate on July 19. “I’m the only gubernatorial candidate that has created jobs in America.”

But Thanedar is not the wholesome businessman-turned-public-servant he wants Michiganders to think he is. His entrepreneurial undertakings, which made him wealthy enough to elicit a “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”-style local news segment years ago about one of his former homes, have involved the same corporate malfeasance he claims he would fight as governor.


El Sayed is desperate and hateful.. Thank You

for your perspective, Ninsianna.

Does OR have to disclose where their money comes from?

Deb Haaland, the other Native American running for Congress Support Sharice!


Claiming. Your. Opponent. Committed. A. Federal. Crime. Is. Not. Okay. When. There. Is. No. Evidence


El Sayed is burning bridges. Why would

he support someone who he's desperately attempted to smear so viciously?

That's too bad you can't see it.. this is a tweet on his latest

attempt to smear Gretchen Whitmer.

Man, I thought you were better than this. How desperate must

I don't care what he supports.. he shows by his desperation he has no class.

Yeah, BS & AOC rallied for the

their kind of OR candidate.. don't care that he's Not the best one to represent Kansas District 3.

Yes and Nina..
