The dipstick if famous LOL

From The Grand Rapids Press
FEATURING
West Michigan's top newsmakers for 2008

"The winner of the house might find a boat via the auction block, too. Michael Vorce made headlines for the second year in a row for alleged fraudulent titles on boats. In 2007, Vorce was arrested for securing millions of dollars in loans on high-end yachts that didn't exist or he did not own. The feds were still investigating that case when he was arrested again this past August for another boat loan that didn't float."

Hey people the Vorce family are great people. Leave them out of your mean words. Mike is also a great young man who has lost his way. He needs support and deserves it. My name is Len Westdale III. I live in Grand Rapids. If you say mean things own up to them.

My great grandson knew Michael. I, Len Westdale VII, would never allow my great grandson to fall into any shady dealings with Michael. Because...

Westdale people are good people. They are good people to know!!

Hope everything for you and your family is bullet proof from this happy economy. I work hard and stick by people who stick by me. I am not a rich man by any means, you all have put myself and my family out there for judgement. Mike Vorce is considered my friend. I do not agree with everything he has done but I still am his friend. You all can try and tarnish me personally and my family financially and it will do no good. As a family we know where we stand, in my friendships, I know where I stand. Thats it.

His family raised him and from my experience his father is beyond wierd. I wonder if he is enjoying his little trip down town to the court house.

a simple correction wrote:
Vorce's were principals for FOREST HILLs not Grand Rapids. Let's not blame everything on GRPS. Regardless of where his parents worked he is responsible for his own bad behavior. Parent's do their best to raise their children-but they do grown up and make their own choices.
While I can feel pity for Michael Vorce I do not feel he should be excused for his criminal behavior either. I do feel sorry for his parents, and the entire Forest Hills community he embarassed.
Can't say I agree. Had many dealing with the dad and can see the connection very clearly. His dad is a very disrespectful person, no class, not very well educated and protected by Washburn as a good soldier. Like we want good soldiers educating our children! Different jobs, different job discriptions. da.

So i am going throughreading all of these comments and everyone is going back and forth with the family... well in all honesty do the people who talk about the family even know them on a personal level. mike has a twin and he turned out just fine and he also has other siblings all turned out fine. mike met someone and he told him about a get rich quick scheme and now the scheme is up and this is noones fault but mikes. you should all stop commenting about people you dont even know
