DETROIT (WKZO) -- A hearing is planned for later this month to determine if felony conspiracy charges will be dropped against two campaign staffers of ex- U.S. Congressman Thaddeus McCotter. Don Yowchuang and Paul Seewald were scheduled to appear in court, but the judge had a medical appointment and postponed the hearing.
Yowchang pleaded no contest to ten felony counts and six misdemeanors while Seewald has entered a guilty plea on misdemeanor charges of falsely signing campaign petitions. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette sought criminal charges after McCotter's campaign filed petitions with forged and duplicated signatures last year.
