Grand Haven House candidate loses appeal over 2012 forged signatures

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court says a man who tried to get a judicial candidate on the ballot in western Michigan with forged signatures can be charged with a felony.

It’s a blow for Brandon Hall, who now is running in the Republican primary for a House seat in the Grand Haven area.

He’s accused of forging signatures on petitions for a judicial candidate in Ottawa County in 2012. The state appeals court said misdemeanor charges seemed appropriate because that’s the warning that appears on the petitions.

But in a unanimous opinion Wednesday, the Supreme Court says the allegations qualify as a felony. Hall says he’s disappointed.

    Wow, that is a lot of forged signatures!
    And what about the incredible coincidence that the number of forged signatures exactly matches the year in which it happened! What are the odds of that??

    Oh…another illiterately written headline by Brenzing, huh?
    Should have known.
