Geralds will run again despite expulsion
REP. JOHN ENGLER (R-Mt.
Pleasant) affirmed the House has the
power to decide whether one of its
members meets ethical code
requirements, even before the judicial
process is completed.
"If he has been convicted by one jury
of embezzlement, then that is grounds
for removal," said Engler.
The basic disagreement on the House
floor was whether the House should
replace Geralds' constituency in
deciding his fate. Geralds' supporters
claimed that since the crime was not
committed while Geralds was in office,
the voters should decide in the next
election whether to keep him in office.
Most representatives reaffirmed the
House's right to expel any member it
views as damaging its integrity and un-
dermining its credibility.
A COMPROMISE resolution was in-
troduced by Reps. David Evans (D-Mt.
Clemens) and Jeffrey Padden (D-
Wyandotte) which called for censuring
Geralds but not removing him from of-
fice. The resolution, as expected, was
soundly defeated, 73-31.
"The compromise never had a chan-
ce. The House was going to vote for his
expulsion and settle for nothing less,"
Geralds, however, reinstated his in-
tention yesterday to seek a third term
in November. He said he is encouraged
by Attorney General Frank Kelley's
ruling which states that his crime was
committed in the private sector and not
in the public trust. Therefore, Geralds
is still legally eligible to be a candidate
in this fall's election.
"I THINK THERE'S a good chance
I'll be re-elected. It will be a difficult
race but I'm not going to give up just
because of what happened today," said
Some House members speculate that
even if Geralds is re-elected, the House
may still refuse to seat him when the
new representatives assume office in
January. They claima member can not
be expelled twice but can be denied
membership before he is inaugurated.
"I do expect the House to refuse to
unseat him if he is re-elected. I can not
see Geralds ever in the House again
unless his conviction is reversed," said
REP. DAISY ELLIOT (D-Detroit)
said she believes the House could not
unseat him if he is re-elected but did
admit the issue is very unclear and
would have to be reviewed.
Another problem confronting
Geralds' re-election aspirations is a
possible jail sentence he may receive
when he is sentenced on May 18.
Geralds insists he will immediately ap-
peal any sentence and says he can still
run while the appeal is pending in the
courts. Forbes, however, said yester-
day the sentence would eliminate any
chance Geralds has of returning to of-
The governor is expected to call for a
new election in Geralds' district to be
held within a few months.
During his three-and-one-half years
in the House, Geralds gained the
respect of his colleagues for rewriting
the state's probate code and has been
appointed by the House speaker to
several important committees, in-
cluding judiciary and taxation, accor-
ding to the Associated Press.
Forbes recently called him "a hard-
working, creative member of the
Legislature, who has made a

various sub-committees his recom-
mendations for certain issues. He said
he expects to finish his remaining
duties and leave the House early next

mer of 1970. Because University
President Robben Fleming refused to
permit the use of campus facilities, the
convention was postponed until the next
summer, according to the documents.
GLF claimed Fleming had originally
authorized the convention to be held in
December 1970, "but subsequently can-
celled his approval ... out of fear of
embarrassment to the U-M."
THE EIGHT-PAGE document con-
cluded: "The contents (of this memo)
are not to be distributed outside your
agency." The letter was not
declassified until May, 1977.
It also details attempts by GLF to ob-
tain permission for the convention,
especially a demonstration held outside
Fleming's home. According to one FBI
source, 30 students carried signs in
front of the house until "several
representatives of the group entered
the home of the U-M president disrup-
ting a social event underway in the
president's home at that time."
The document continues: "Source
