Default Why is Fieger...

running commercials about things that happened 8+ years ago? I just saw a commercial where he spewed a bunch of bullshit about how Engler fucked things up, with not even one mention of good old moley.

Why won't this guy just go away.

'cause its true. Moley is just a follow up. Engler really boned this state.
1. Engler closed the rec areas to ORV use.
2. he instated the .06 tax that would offset state budgets. and save us from high school taxes
3 he gave the DNR something called "Orders of the director". it gives them the power to write laws without concern for legislature

While I was not a fan of Engler (or Blanchard, or Moley)

#2 is incorrect. He pushed the Legislature into putting a constitutional amendment before the public that forced us, the voters into making the decision to shaft ourselves with a higher sales tax or a higher income tax. This took place in 1994 and is known as "Proposition A". It passed by a LARGE majority of the electorate (us voters) yet nobody remembers it, or even voting for it...

#3 is a huge stretch - most State Level directors have the power to interpret law and set Departmental policy that has the bureaucratic effect of law until challenged in Court and over turned. The State Tax Commission has been doing this for decades.

I remember Feiger really started increasing the number of his position type commercials (the ones not explicitly advertising his firm) back in early 2007 before he was about to be indicted on federal charges of making illegal campaign contributions and one of the theories was that he was trying to taint any potential jury pool by making it impossible for just about anybody in SE Michigan, where he was likely to be tried, to be impartial. He ended up being acquitted on all those charges in 2008 though.

So when the commercials continued, I figured he was gearing up for another run for governor or possibly attorney general. Since he hasn't done either of those this year, I think the most likely reason he runs the ads because he's a blowhard and likes the sound of his own voice.


Totally off-topic, but still speaking of the Feiger family voice... Did you know his brother was the lead singer for The Knack? I had no idea until he died earlier this year.

My Alma Mater does an outstanding job at training people like Fieger.
