John's Campaign Finances Both the donation list and the expenditure list are very interesting, and bear scrutiny. I hope Ramsey's opponents are looking these lists over carefully. The question of WHY john Ramsey is running for this office has more answers for me now. The amounts going to John Yob and other businesses listed at his Grand Rapids address is quite hefty. Also to his father Chuck Yob who "encouraged" Ramsey to run. Ramsey, by fronting for the Yobs, can gain influence with the Yacht Club set whether he wins or loses. Patsy can move up to the "A" list in Charlevoix, something she has desired all her life--way back since her West Virginia days. Patsy wants to be "Society". By assisting the Yobs to increase their fortunes, Ramsey is buying a place at the table for him and Patsy among the social elite of Charlevoix. How many other Yob family and friends are on the campaign payroll? It might be a good idea for the opposition to investigate the salaried people, who are being paid quite well, complete with benefits, and see who they are related to. Chuck Yob was going to run for this office himself, but then chose Ramsey to run in his place. Of course! There is now a middleman to launder their money. Money which they take from the donors and pay to themselves and close associates! It's like a Mafia racket. Where did the impoverished John Ramsey (according to Mike Tracey and his crocks) get those tens of thousands of dollars to donate to his own campaign? Do you think the Yobs "fronted" him these funds, to impress fat cat Republicans in the 105th, and influence them to ante up for the Yobs' candidate? We see how this money has been flowing directly back into the Yobs' coffers. This is a dirty race, and I hope Elsenheimer and the others are noticing what we are noticing. FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!$$$$$!!!
