VIDEO OF THE DAY: 'Perpetrated election fraud' scandal Rep. Roy Schmidt (R) gathers one attendee at coffee hour

Embattled Michigan House Representative
Roy Schmidt (R-Marshall)
One should know in advance re-election tea-leaves are looking not very well if potential voters prefer to be anywhere else than your scheduled coffee hour.

For embattled State Rep. Roy Schmidt (R-Grand Rapids), the second participant in the Speaker of the House Jase Bolger (R-Marshall)/Schmidt "perpetrated election fraud" scandal, a recent meeting scheduled with voters in the Grand Rapids community, netted one attendee at the event besides media and a family member.

From WZZM Channel 13:

"Republican State Representative Roy Schmidt has always held coffee hours to meet with citizens, but he put that practice on hold after he switched parties at the last second before the primary election. 
Tuesday morning, Rep. Schmidt held his first public coffee since the controversy erupted. 
Expecting a crowd, he moved it to a larger restaurant, but media and staff members far outnumbered concerned citizens. Outside of friends and family, only one constituent came to chat."
WZZM's news report detailed Schmidt discussing his disappointment in the turn out at his coffee hour. 
On Tuesday, August 28th, a Ingham County Circuit Court nine-member panel authorized a one-person Grand Jury to investigate if Schmidt and Bolger will face criminal charges for paying 22 year old retail clerk Matt Mojack $450.00 to run as a fake Democrat after Schmidt switched parties, becoming a Republican.
