A news service for the people of Michigan from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy

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."

Bauer's participation was discovered by Michigan blogger Jason Gillman. The creation of the mysterious 'Tea Party' was uncovered by the late Chetly Zarko of Zarko Reasearch.
