Kurt Haskell Wins House of Representatives Primary in MichiganSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 08/08/2012 - 11:38
Michigan attorney Kurt Haskell has beaten his opponent in the August 7 primary for a seat in the House of Representatives. Haskell defeated fellow Democrat Ruben Marquez and will face Republican Tim Walberg in November. Walberg is the current Representative for Michigan’s 7th congressional district.
Kurt Haskell came to public attention following the so-called underwear bomber incident on Christmas Day, 2009. He was on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit when Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab feebly attempted to ignite PETN bomb. Haskell also witnessed a “sharp dressed man” ushering Abdulmutallab on the flight prior to the supposedly flubbed attack despite the fact the Nigerian did not have a passport.
“Every single fact that has come to light since the attempted bombing on Christmas Day directly indicates that the bomber was deliberately allowed to board the plane and that his attack would have succeeded if not for the alert and brave reactions of the passengers and flight crew,” Paul Jospeh Watson wrote for Infowars.com on December 27, 2009.
Haskell told his story during a December 29, 2009 appearance on the Alex Jones Show. He maintains that Abdulmutallab was carrying an inoperative bomb and was set-up as a patsy.
