    Since when? I live in Michigan, and I've never heard of such a thing before this. And, while it is not specifically unlawful under election laws to do what these guys tried to do, it is likely that they are guilty of conspiracy to commit perjury. That investigation is ongoing. Note too that Schmidt was an incumbent Democrat whose district was made more Republican by redistricting, which was the inspiration for the subterfuge. Since the wave election in 2010, Republicans have controlled every part of the state government, and they've been running roughshod over everyone who doesn't agree with their far-right agenda.

    This incident to high heaven, but the linked article presents no evidence that this is a common practice in Michigan.
