Helper gop #141 Pleads No Contest 10 Times To Being A Criminal Helper gop

2 ex-aides to McCotter convicted in Michigan election scandal involving phony signatures

DETROIT — A former aide pleaded no contest Tuesday to forgery in an election scandal that ruined the political career of a longtime Detroit-area congressman.

Don Yowchuang, who was deputy district director to then-U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, assembled and delivered petitions that were supposed to get the Livonia Republican on the August primary ballot, a routine chore every two years. Many signatures, however, turned out to be fakes or photocopies.

Yowchuang pleaded no contest to 10 felony counts of forgery in Wayne County Circuit Court.
