Michigan GOP Pulls a Willie Horton

LANSING, Mich. – A campaign mailing from the Michigan Republican Party blames Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm and the state corrections director for a crime spree that resulted in the deaths of three people.

The brochure has a photo of Patrick Selepak, who pleaded guilty to killing Melissa and Scott Berels of New Baltimore and Winfield Johnson of Genesee County’s Vienna Township in February. The headline says: “This violent criminal was mistakenly released into your community.”

“Governor Granholm and her state prison director. If they can’t do the job, why are they still on the job?” the brochure says.
