West MI Blogger Who Took Down 2 State Reps Found Guilty Faces 5 Years In Prison

was found guilty today of election fraud stemming from a case in 2012.

Hall's claim to fame occurred in 2015 when he broke the story of the affair between former State Representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat.

The Michigan Supreme Courthas reinstated felony election-fraud charges against Brandon Michael Hall, who decided to run as a Republican candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives in northern Ottawa County this past year.

The state's high court unanimously reversed the Michigan Court of Appeals and said Hall was properly charged with felony forgery. The Michigan Attorney General's Office is prosecuting Hall for allegedly forging signatures on nominating petitions he circulated for a judicial candidate in 2012.

Hall, 26, of Grand Haven, a conservative political blogger with West Michigan Politics, former candidate for state House, former Grand Haven school board member and convicted thief, faced 10 counts of forgery. That's a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Hall was charged with 10 counts of election law forgery after the jury took less than an hour to come back with the guilty verdict against Brandon Hall Wednesday afternoon in Ottawa County Circuit Court.
