Among the new group of state lawmakers to emerge from Election Day on Tuesday is Brian Banks, who has been convicted eight times for felonies involving bad checks and credit card fraud.
Banks, a Democrat and lifelong Detroiter, won a seat in Lansing as a state representative for the 1st District, representing the east side of Detroit, Harper Woods, and the tony Grosse Pointes. He won 68 percent of the vote to Republican Dan Schulte’s 32 percent.
Banks, 35, was convicted eight times between 1998 and 2004 of writing bad checks and credit card fraud.
His slogan was “You can Bank on Banks.”

You think Banks is Bad, check out the last paragraph in the referenced article.
“Reindeer farmer Kerry Bentivolio, who once said in a deposition he wasn’t always sure if he was himself or Santa Claus and whose brother described him as “mentally unbalanced,” won the House seat in Michigan’s 11th District.”
Banks will fit in just fine with all the other crooks.
Birds of a feather….
