Perhaps the most over-the-top piece of campaign
literature in Macomb County – and maybe the entire state of Michigan – for this
primary season was produced by Republican Tadd Siglow of Romeo, who is trying
to oust state Rep. Pete Lund in northwest Macomb County.
Siglow’s campaign flyer, pictured here, is short on details
and big on drama. Lund, one of the top-ranking Republicans in the state House,
is portrayed as the devil due to his votes on insurance reforms that favor the
insurance companies. Siglow’s message is that the evil Lund does not
particularly care about autistic kids or disabled adults.
But there are two curious things about this situation:
Siglow’s literature, a two-sided, multi-color placard, is posted on his Facebook
page -- ready for mailing with a Postal Permit stamp -- but it apparently has not
been sent anywhere in the House 36th District yet.
Second, Siglow has filed no finance reporting information
with the Secretary of State’s Office. So, voters don’t know where the cash is
coming from to finance the mailer.
