    (CBS) DETROIT - The newly elected state assembly in Michigan includes at least one ex-con: Brian Banks, who's been convicted eight times for felonies involving bad checks and credit card fraud, won a seat representing the east side of Detroit, Harper Woods, and the tony Grosse Pointes, CBS Detroit reports..

    Banks, 35, was convicted eight times between 1998 and 2004 of writing bad checks and credit card fraud. His slogan was "You can Bank on Banks."

    Ironic, no?

    The 35-year-old Democrat and lifelong Detroiter, got 68 percent of the vote to Republican Dan Schulte's 32 percent, according to CBS Detroit.

    "It's time to elect a leader, with experience and passion, who will fight for you," Banks wrote on his website.
    Michigan voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2010 that bans anyone convicted of a felony in the last 20 years from running for office - but the caveat is the conviction has to be "related to the person's official capacity while holding any elective office." This was Banks' first run for elected office.

    This sounds like one of the most highly qualified Hoodie Party politicians yet!

    It's unfortunate that our choice wasn't between the bank fraud guy and the reindeer farmer, who is sometimes confused as to whether he is Santa or not, but, alas, they are from different districts.


    I never heard of the pastor who endorsed this guy or the church he allegedly pastors, but like any big city, there are so many storefront churches and such that it is not easy to know all of them. At least he's not a member of the Shrine of The Black Madonna-they are very politically active and definitely an "I hate whitey" kind of church. It's the church Kwame grew up in, but not the one he attended as an adult (he went to his wife's church). At the Shrine, the members all have "Shrine names", which are allegedly african names. It also produced Barbara Rose Collins, one of the most corrupt women to ever walk City Hall and the halls of Congress. Her shrine name means something like a queen who is violent. Ze'ev Chavets dedicated a whole chapter of his book Devil's Night And Other True Stories Of Detroit to her. You all think Jeremiah Wright/Trinity UCC is bad news....

    Same region that was responsible for Obama taking Michigan. Gotta love it.

    And it seems the Emergency Manager law was repealed as well. I'm starting to think it's time to just give Detroit to Canada. We'll reroute the Detroit river around it for a new border.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Detroit is the U.S. most dangerous city. Is it even possible to find someone to run for political office who doesn't have a criminal record?

    Not even Canada would take Detroit.
