McCotter Staffers Charged with Forging Signatures

Four staffers of former Rep. Thad McCotter (R-MI) "were charged today in connection with the false nominating petitions that led to McCotter's departure from Congress," the Detroit Free Press reports.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette described the four as "not simply Keystone Kops running amok... criminal acts were committed," adding that the cut-and-paste jobs on the petitions "would make an elementary art teacher cringe."
