    Thumbs down Detroiters Elect Ex-Con Brian Banks As State Rep

    DETROIT (WWJ) Among the new group of state lawmakers to emerge from Election Day on Tuesday is Brian Banks, who has been convicted eight times for felonies involving bad checks and credit card fraud.

    Banks, a Democrat and lifelong Detroiter, won a seat in Lansing as a state representative for the 1st District, representing the east side of Detroit, Harper Woods, and the tony Grosse Pointes. He won 68 percent of the vote to Republican Dan Schulte’s 32 percent.

    Banks, 35, was convicted eight times between 1998 and 2004 of writing bad checks and credit card fraud.

    His slogan was “You can Bank on Banks.”

    “It’s time to elect a leader, with experience and passion, who will fight for you,” he wrote on his website.

    You think he got the minority vote? Just proves to me that the majority of Detroiters are IDIOTS!!!

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    You guys don't remember Marion Barry getting reelected after his stint for cocaine and hookers? Try to find an honest person in D.C. or Detroit!!!

    I guess what I find to be really odd... A felon can run and hold office but cannot vote? Just making sure I have this right because it makes absolutely no sense to me!!!

    Well think of this, a Secret Service Agent has more of a background check than our own president. My son is being vetted more for an LEO job than the person that holds a key to our nuclear weapons!!!
