A member of the Republican Party’s central committee in Michigan — a tea party activist and radio host– missed his scheduled court appearance in Wisconsin but he has a totally good reason. Doug Sedenquist spent Thanksgiving weekend in jail on felony charges in the Upper Peninsula. Sedenquist’s resume also lists him as the former vice chairman of the Delta County GOP.
51 year-old Sedenquist was to face charges in connection with a March 3 incident, which includes, refusing to comply with a police officer’s attempt to take him into custody — a felony — and misdemeanor charges of sending a threatening message and disorderly conduct. Adding to that, he’s now in jail for extortion, stalking and possession of a drug chemically similar to a controlled substance.
Police said Sedenquist refused to put down a rifle which he pointed at himself inside of his truck. And of course, he’s an open carry advocate.
Sedenquist, a Conservative radio personality, part of the ‘Devin and Doug’ show, was recently vice chairman of the Delta County Republican Party, and continues to hold a state party post, although the details of that post are scant.
