LANSING, Mich., Sept 11 (LSN) – The Associated Press reported today that former Kevorkian lawyer Geoffrey Fieger threatens the success of neighbouring Democratic campaigns. In August Fieger, notorious for his derogatory attacks and personal slurs against all who oppose assisted suicide, won Michigan’s Democratic gubernatorial primary pitting him against the incumbent Republican Governor John Engler who opposes assisted suicide.  Steve Mitchell of Mitchell Research & Communications in East Lansing told Associated Press that “Geoff Fieger is not an albatross around neck of Democrats, he’s an anchor, and he’s going to bring down Democrats.” However, Democratic big-wigs remain steadfastly behind their extremist candidate. State Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer said “The evidence is great that he really excites the base of the Democratic Party   Geoff conveys the image of being much more of a fighter.”  Ralph Reed of Century Strategies in Atlanta noted that “The Democrats can distance themselves from him nationally and in Michigan and probably prevent a meltdown, but only if they publicly repudiate him and his views.”“I don’t think there’s any doubt that he is going to be a drag on the ticket in Michigan.”
