It Seems To Be the Year to "Throw the Bastards Out!"

A 7-term Democrat from Detroit loses the primary. Clarke victory closes curtain on Kilpatrick era in Congress | | The Detroit News

U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick lost the Democratic nomination to Hansen Clarke. In part, because of the antics of her son and ex-husband.
Kwame Kilpatrick [the son and one-time mayor of Detroit] is behind bars for a probation violation after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice in a sex-text cover-up, and recently was indicted on 19 federal corruption charges, including mail fraud and wire fraud. Bernard Kilpatrick [the ex-husband] is under federal investigation for a pay-to-play city hall scheme.
Pay-to-play? Sounds familiar somehow.
