He seems to be on a mission to kill his career lately, his actions are too dumb to not be purposeful.

I LOVE the "personal political slush fund" line.
BUT, I'm glad that it didn't go into the state general fund where it would have never seen the light of day. Better that more of it went to aid groups like Focus:HOPE and UnitedWay who are trying to help some folks get back on their feet.

Why isn't ALL the money going to the people that were given "questionable loans"? The Democrat solution is no better (putting the money into the General Fund). The only thing worse than a company exploiting people is the government exploiting people.

NARRATOR: [SERIOUSLY] A corrupt lending network defrauded Michigan residents of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Attorney General Mike Cox fought them and won the state a $10 million settlement. But, with times tough and Michigan residents feeling depressed, he's set aside 5 percent of that money for ...
END SYNTH: KIDS CHEER
... [SUDDENLY UPBEAT] a couple of parks for Grand Rapids children!
FUNTIME MUSIC AND KIDS CHEERING
Now Grand Rapids residents can enjoy cleaner, better, more up-to-date parks, boosting local spirits! And that's why, from Iron Mountain to Three Rivers, Michigan residents are proud of our smart, tough Attorney General. Thanks, Big Mike!
