    Good luck, Mr. Boman. This Michigan native knows there’s a great need for change in Michigan.

    Scotty Bowman is Canadian. No Senate run for him. A true legend, though, in the hockey world.

    Thanks for the recognition. I am the real Scotty Boman. The hockey coach is William Scott Boman. His middly name is Scott, and my first name is Scott. The “W” was dropped from my family name by my grandfather during the previous great depression.

    Well since we’re talking Michigan hockey, Tim Thomas is taking a one year leave of absence from the Bruins. You may recall his decision to snub Obama when the rest of his Stanley Cup Champeen team visited the White House. Tim is from Michael Moron’s hometown of Flint, Michigan. He seems politically astute and I could see him running for office. He wouldn’t be the first pro athlete to hold public office.

    Here is a press release I put out recently:

    Carl Levin recall language passes clarity review. Signature collection to start on July 4th

    July, 3rd, 2012

    Detroit, MI – Activist are free to begin circulating petitions to recall Senator Carl Milton Levin starting this Independence
    Day; their petition language has been deemed clear in the manner described by Section 168.952 of Michigan Election law
    which states:

    “(3) The board of county election commissioners, not less than 10 days or more than 20 days after submission to it of a
    petition for the recall of an officer, shall meet and shall determine whether each reason for the recall stated in the petition
    is of sufficient clarity to enable the officer whose recall is sought and the electors to identify the course of conduct that is
    the basis for the recall. Failure of the board of county election commissioners to comply with this subsection shall
    constitute a determination that each reason for the recall stated in the petition is of sufficient clarity to enable the officer
    whose recall is being sought and the electors to identify the course of conduct that is the basis for the recall.”

    Notarized certified letters containing the most recent language were signed for on June 11th, and Wayne County Election
    Chairman Milton L. Mack acknowledged receiving the language on June 14th in a letter written to the petitions sponsor,
    Scott Avery Boman. In the letter Mack wrote that, “…the Wayne County Election Commission will not accept petition
    language directed to a United State Senator.” According to Boman, Director of Elections Delphine Oden told him (by
    phone on June 22nd) this meant they would not be holding a clarity review hearing. Section 168.121 (United States
    senator; recall) reads: “Persons holding the office of United States senator are subject to recall by the qualified and
    registered electors of the state as provided in chapter 36 of this act.”

    On May 1st the commission held a hearing to review the clarity of previous language and found the prior language to be
    unclear. The new approved (by default) petition language reads,

    “He co-authored and introduced an amendment regarding detention provisions (Subtitle D Section 1031) to S.1867
    (the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012). He voted in favor of the final version (H.R. 1540)
    which contained the detention provisions in section 1021.”

    Sponsors cite Levin’s pivotal roll in provisions they describe as “de facto martial law,” as their reason to initiate the recall
    effort. The recall will require 468,709 signatures. Boman said, “Warren and I can’t do this on our own. We can get this
    started with a build-it-and-they-will-come approach. In 2008 1,810,234 people voted against Carl Levin. We need to
    have about a quarter of these people sign the petition, and a much smaller portion to step up and be activists.”

    Petitions can be downloaded from
    County officials also have standard recall petition forms that may be filled out by hand. Co-sponsor Warren Raftshol said,
    “We are building an internet campaign via Facebook, and these petitions are legal and official. I invite people to forward
    the link to Carl Levin’s Facebook page and tell him they object to NDAA detention.”

    Boman said, “Independence Day is the perfect day to launch this effort. The tyranny Levin has brought us with this law
    rivals the oppression imposed on the colonists by the British in 1776.”
