Meekhof Recall Denied, Senator Seeks Donations

CLICK HERE: Meekhof's website asking for donations

 State Senator Arlan Meekhof was quick to capitalize on the denial of recall papers filed by Spring Lake man Jason Collins.

Just a few hours after the petition language was rejected by Ottawa County's Election Commission for being unclear, Meekhof posted this on his Facebook fan page:

"Today the Ottawa County Election Commission ruled that the recall petition against me was insufficient. But the law says that the person trying to recall me gets as many tries to create a sufficient petition as he needs. Would you please consider making a small donation of $50 or $25 to help fight off this recall attempt? Click the link below to donate online. Thank you!"

He also has a webpage set up for donations that displays the following message:

On June 7, formal papers were filed requesting for a recall petition. This formally began the process for a recall election against me. On June 21, the first attempt for approval of the petition was denied. I need your help. There will be another attempt at approving language for a petition. Please consider contributing $10, $25, or $50 to help my campaign. I appreciate your support. Together, we can ensure that Michigan returns to prosperity.

WMP opined yesterday that the Meekhof recall is severely misguided. Purely political recalls demean democracy and distract from governing. Apparently the cliche of making lemonade out of lemons is holding true for Senator Meekhof.
