We link to this article, written by a well-established Bridge Michigan reporter, about a so-called pay for play scheme that unfolded in northern Michigan. But, honestly, we don't know what to make of it. The scheme is troubling, for sure. But it also sounds oh-so amateurish.
InstaSynopsis: William Hindle, State Senate candidate for the 37th District, told Bridge that he was offered a $50,000 government job to drop out of the race. The story features George Ranville, another senate candidate, a guy named Joe Welsh (who made the offer to Hindle), and Trucker Randy Bishop, the radio talk show host.
Hindle, pictured, remains in the race.
