The Hathaway family is well known for their liberal bent. You may remember then-candidate Diane Hathaway's (D)bogus "sleeping justice" ads that were introduced at the last minute to torpedo Michigan Supreme Court Justice Cliff Taylor (R). You know, the same Diane Hathaway that would have voted to permit the bogus, scam, democrat-created "Tea Party" to appeal their removal from the November ballot?
If you live in Oakland County and fit certain criteria that would paint you as Republican or conservative-leaning, you might have received a robocall in the last 10 days suggesting that you vote for Rick Snyder and Dana Hathaway. That call also offers that David Gorcyca supports Dana. These calls, inferring conservative support for Hathaway, are actually generated from a democrat operative in Royal Oak. If you receive one of these calls, check your caller ID and do a google search yourself. Take a look at Dana's website. Note Dana's list of supporters. Including her relatives, almost every single person listed is a noted liberal activist. You can't get more anti-gun than Jessica Cooper and Barry Howard. Union supporters of the Hathaway dynasty are well represented too.
Dana hasn't had a license to practice law long enough to qualify to sit as judge and certainly could not have appeared before all the judges she lists as supporters. Dana will have the minimum requirement of five years experience only AFTER the election. Dana has zero experience in probate law. If elected, maybe she can learn on your case? KATHLEEN RYAN has been a fixture in Oakland Probate Court. She was there when I started practicing law, and she's still there. KATHLEEN RYAN has fourteen years experience and is rated "well qualified". I've never seen Dana appear in any court on any matter, let alone a probate case.
I talked firearms with KATHLEEN RYAN this evening. After the discussion I can earnestly report that she is very pro-2A. She enjoyed talking about the subject and is obviously proficient in the safe handling of firearms, not as a result of a distant and questionable connection to her dentist's uncle's third cousin who once went to a western film, but through ownership. KATHLEEN RYAN'S base was well represented at the dinner this evening. Oakland County Circuit and Probate judges were numerous. Not everyone in attendance was conservative. House Majority Leader Andy Dillon (D) (NRA-PVF rated "B") was there too. KATHLEEN'S conservative and pro-2A credentials are assured, Dana's are assuredly absent.
If you are in the gun culture and are considering voting for Dana Hathaway, an inexperienced judicial candidate who associates with known gun-grabbers, you need to double check the research. If the unverifiable stretch of distant relation to an NRA president makes up for all this, then I guess you will vote your conscience.
