Bert Johnson has been called in to right the ship at the Conyers campaign.  He joins us along with political strategist Adolph Mongo, who's working for Conyers' opponent, the Rev. Horace Sheffield.

Then we're joined by Steve Hood, the political consultant who's taken the blame for Conyers' election ejection.  He hired the petition circulators at the center of the mess.  Also with us, former congressman Thaddeus McCotter.  He resigned his seat in 2012 after it was found his staffers were actually forging signatures on his petitions.  Plus, Karen Dumas joins us to talk about the PR implications of the legendary Democrat's debacle.
