Dennis Lennox Charged with Misuse of Public Funds

Dennis Lennox, Wikipedia vandal … I mean Cheboygan County Drain Commissioner has been charged with a one-year, $1000 criminal misdemeanor for allegedly sending 250 Christmas cards using county-paid postage, but including campaign literature in the Christmas cards, meaning that he was allegedly using taxpayer funds to finance his campaign.  Lennox is expected to surrender himself to the Cheboygan city police by early next week.

A press release from Cheboygan County prosecutor Daryl Vizina said that Lennox had been asked to reimburse the county for the cost of the postage, but originally refused; however, once the criminal investigation began, he offered to pay.

Vizina said, “If this was any other citizen we would charge him, so we want to be consistent.  If a employee at Subway was taking company resources for themselves, we would charge them.”

Lennox, on the other hand, says that this is all a political vendetta from the Democratic prosecutor (Lennox is a Republican – although I’ve always thought that he makes our party look bad).  Lennox said, “This is a Democratic political vendetta.  I campaigned against this prosecutor, who is a Democrat, and I campaigned to get rid of this police department.  I also campaigned against the judge.  My lawyer will probably be the candidate who ran against her.”

What’s even more ironic is that Denny Lenny ran on a platform of abolishing the position of Drain Commissioner because it was a “waste of taxpayer money.”  He even went so far as to say, “There is nothing for the drain commissioner to do in Cheboygan County except waste taxpayer money.”  Well, that turned out to be more true than he originally intended us to think it was.

Lennox should be ashamed of himself – he has let down the citizens of Cheboygan County, and he has disgraced the Republican Party.  For the sake of the Republican Party, Republicans across Michigan should come out against Lennox, somebody who has shown hypocrisy and dishonesty in the past.

This pretty much kills his chances of winning the race for the 105th State House District, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Done Ranting,

Ranting Republican

    Dennis Lennox has used every nasty technique while running for office and now his own actions got him in trouble. I hope they nail him to the wall. Hopefully this will end his political career for good! Rumor has it that he’s also on the Homeland Security ‘Watch List’.

    He smears someone on wikipedia and a lawsuit is filed against him.
    He files a lawsuit against someone downstate, on behalf of Cheboygan County, without consent from the commissioners.

    It wasn’t too long ago when he smeared the tv weatherman on allegations that proved to be false considering there was no follow up in the press.

    Here he had a chance to admit guilt and fix it – instead he blames the other party? Dennis Lennox needs to be institutionalized! What a thief and a humiliation to politics.

    Reminds me a bit of Sarah Palin. Any press is better than no press at all. It’s unfortunate he isn’t recalled. The only way I can imagine he could begin to redeem himself would be to resign and RETURN all his salary since becoming the Drain Commissioner. After all, he stated that the position had no function and as such there should be no compensation for no services rendered. This is a great distraction during our tough economic times. Another great activity as spring comes upon us would be a recall initiative. Seems like enough has transpired to validate a recall initiative. Stay tuned, I’m sure there will be more.

    Which shows the sad state of our justice system, when somebody who writes a letter admitting his guilt can be found not guilty.
