Former SagChip Lobbyist Aiding Local Republicans on TV Effort

Area Republicans desperate to play catch up with the Isabella County Democratic Party are turning to Chris Petras, the fired Saginaw Chippewa Tribe's legislative director associated with the Republican Party corruption scandals.

When word got out that the Isabella County Democratic Party had turned to public access TV to get their messages out, local Republicans needed an expert to assist them. Yes, that is the same Dr. Petras whose memory escaped him at Congressional hearings about the sums of money funneled to Jack Abramhoff and his associate Mike Scanlon.

Petras, a former CMU instructor, had required students at one of his classes to produce a television program in cooperation with the Mid-Michigan Area Cable Consortium as one of their assignments.

If you want to check out just how Petras amused Congressional investigators, this is one good site to go to.

Now we can hardly wait to see what Chris Petras does to local public acccess TV.
