Rules Are For Little People

And Republicans. In Michigan Democrat John Conyers can get back on the ballot even though about half the signatures collected to put him there have been ruled invalid. The judge ruled that Conyers people meant well by doing the signature collection as they did, so notwithstanding the statute violations, Conyers will be on the ballot.

Compare and contrast this to an earlier election
In 2012, another Michigan congressman, Republican Thad McCotter of suburban Detroit, didn't make the ballot because a staff member turned in phony signatures or ones from old petitions. McCotter announced he would mount a write-in campaign but later dropped the effort.
 No slack for Republicans.
