Oakland County Clerk Ruth Johnson, a candidate for Michigan Secretary of State, says she has evidence of forgery in one of the candidate statements for the "Tea Party" political party. The supposed candidate, Aaron Tyler of Springfield Township, has been in Phoenix, AZ, and told Johnson's office that he did not wish to be a candidate, did not sign his name on candidate statement paperwork, and had no idea his name was in the process of being placed on the ballot.

According to the release: "Johnson said the alleged false Tyler paperwork was notarized by a Jason H.Bauer. According to Michigan Capitol Confidential.com, a Jason Bauer has registered twice to run for office in Oakland County, once as a Democrat in May of this year. Mr. Bauer notarized paperwork for eight Tea Party candidates running in the November election."

Renting out the family summer cottage is a common practice in Michigan, and with today’s technologies, it’s easier than ever, empowered by services like AirBnB, HomeAway, VRBO and more. These short-term rentals mean vacationers can find a place much more easily and inexpensively, while owners can earn some extra money. It seems like a win-win. Not everyone agrees. Some in the accommodations and tourism industries aren’t happy with the increased competition and are advocating for limiting people’s rights to rent out their homes. Some homeowner associations are pushing back as well. And while cities like Detroit and Grand Rapids have mostly embraced home sharing, some local governments have restricted and even banned the practice.
