“Just amazing to me how desperate people are that they go to these kinds of lengths to try to destroy someone”

A Michigan lawmaker arrested last week following a confrontation with an employee of a local establishment alleged in a Monday radio hit that he’s being framed by shadowy forces aimed at toppling him, the Detroit News quotes him saying that “just the way events unfolded it was very clear to me that something wasn’t right and I was being framed and trying to be framed and being set up. And that’s how these people work, you know? And it’s just so frustrating. It’s just amazing to me how desperate people are that they go to these kinds of lengths to try to destroy someone.”

The lawmaker of course is far right Michigan state Representative Neil Friske who was arrested at 2:45 AM Friday in Lansing after chasing a stripper while armed with a gun. Local DA John Dewane’s office have asked Lansing police to further investigate claims of sexual assault, assault, and a weapons offense in regard to the incident, one that Friske told MAGA radio show “Your Defending Fathers” was some kind of set-up, but “can’t really comment on the specifics of things.” Friske added that he’s got a “long road ahead” to resolving the charges but was “very optimistic… People see right through this. It’s a century old game that’s not even new. My campaign is full steam ahead.”

“I am not suspending my campaign. That is not what I feel like God wants me to do. That is not the message I am getting from my supporters. And I’ve not done anything wrong, so why on earth would I do that?” Friske continued, as if we didn’t already fucking get it a long time ago that such unaccountability is the operating principle of the American Republican politician in the 21st century.

There is one part however that we’re genuinely curious about: Did Friske come up with the whole “set up” shit before or after the arrest? The sexual assault angle mentioned by the DA would hint that this is a vanilla, open-and-shut case of Friske getting too frisky with the stripper, but there’s still a version in which maybe he was so drunk and coked up he thought she was a “Deep State” agent trying to entrap him into some kind of kompromat tape or whatever – and that was what spurred him to chase her out of the joint and down the street with a gun. We’ll probably find out soon enough.
