At the same time that Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette is aggressively pushing for preservation of Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriages and vows to take the issue all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, he is chumming around with Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema, the GOP’s best known anti-gay bigot.
The AG and Agema chatted at Schuette’s re-election campaign in Grand Rapids yesterday (above). It’s probably a good guess that they did not discuss concerted efforts by the Republican establishment to censure Agema or bounce him from the RNC.
Meanwhile, the photo below shows Matt Hall (left), a Schuette staffer, and Jessica Jeurink, a top aide to Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, palling around with tea party activist Trucker Randy Bishop. Trucker Randy has become infamous in the GOP for his oafish behavior (and his status as a convicted felon and his support for Agema). Some party leaders have called for his resignation from all Republican posts he holds.
Yet, the next Republican State Committee meeting slated for the weekend of May 2 will be held at an upscale resort in Antrim County, which is where Trucker Randy serves as county GOP chairman.
