and then there was Mark Foley...
now we'd like you to meet Michael A. Flory, one more fine Republican making his way through America's criminal courts.
That's right. This fine, not-so-upstanding young man is currently the chairman of the Michigan Federation of Young Republicans, and graces the lovely streets of East Lansing, at least when he's not in court facing charges of rape, kidnapping, aggravated burglary, gross sexual imposition and witness intimidation.
Yowsers! Quite the laundry list, eh? The story just broke this morning in the LSJ.
So what's so special about Mr. Flory? Well for starters, it appears he might have been snoozing during his criminal law classes at the Wayne State Law School. He's actually a practicing attorney! The MFYR touts Flory
Mike Flory is truly one of the rising stars of GOP politics in America.
My, my, if only all the Republican stars were as bright as Mr.
*UPDATE* It seems as if Mr. Flory has stepped down to "clear his good name". In his place, Alicia Ping has stepped up as Acting Chairman. Let's hope she can stay out of the defendant's seat.... We'll continue to follow the Flory story as it develops....
