Greatest Candidate Committee Name Ever

Howard Worthy is kind of a perpetual candidate for a spot in the state legislature in Michigan. In 2010 he ran for the state senate as a Democrat; in 2012 he ran for the state house. This year he’s running for the senate again and he’s filed for his candidate fundraising committee. You’re gonna love the name:


Yep, it’s the God Jesus Elect Howard Worth State Senator, To “God” Be the Glory (TGBTG) Committee. Beautiful.


  1. Vicki, duly vaccinated tool of the feminist conspiracy says

    I remember when we thought CREEP (Committee to Re-Elect the President) was noteworthy.

  2. John Pieret says

    If To “God” Be The Glory, does that mean, if Worthy wins, God will become a state senator from Michigan? Seems something of a comedown.

  3. Sastra says

    Jeez that’s stupid — especially so given his actual name. It could have been the “How Worthy He Is” Committee.

  4. kantalope says

    I like the little crosses at the end of the name and then at the end of the addresses…that just screams classy.

  5. anubisprime says

    It screams indolent adolescent dawdling on his textbook at the back of the class when bored with actually learning stuff!

  6. Scr... Archivist says

    The problem for this candidate is that God Jesus is not a U.S. citizen. He can’t vote for Worthy, let alone elect him.

  7. pixiedust says

    That last part be T”G”BTG.

    If you’re gonna use scarequotes, own ’em!

  8. vmanis1 says

    I think the crosses are footnote. daggers: `†Yes, I am a fruitcake.’

  9. caseloweraz says

    My prediction: Now that Howard Worthy has given the glory to “God”, that entity will return the favor by making Howard “worthy” of election.

    Howard Worthy isn’t worthy to be Senator;
    He played the God card, he’s not one to vote for.
    But somehow it is strange to hear conservo-Christians say
    They’re for freedom of religion ‘long as you believe their way.

    I like to think that Phil Ochs would have appreciated that, if he had survived.

  10. says

    It looks like a flippin’ mockery. Especially with “God” in quotes (but only in the latter section of the name, which is even weirder). WTF?

    But in poking around for this guy, I came across quite a few, rather mildly right/Republican-leaning sites. Even they manage to disgust me. I honestly don’t think there are any significant number of conservative/Republican types out there anymore with which I could even hope to have a reasonable conversation. I would probably rather deal with the most idiotic Liberals one could find than Conservative-lite individual.

  11. Jordan Genso says

    He doesn’t expect to raise more than $1,000 for his campaign? (he checked the waiver box)
    How could people not be eager to make checks out to: God Jesus Elect Howard Worth State Senator, To “God” Be the Glory (TGBTG) Committee

  12. vilstef says

    It really should be the He is Worthy Committee, but I can understand why not because of so many people either despising or not getting puns.

  13. Jordan Genso says


    Technically, the committee name has to include the full name of the candidate, so it’d have to be:
    He is Howard Worthy Committee

    And then the pun is lost.

  14. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    Didn’t prudish anti-porn campaigner Mary Whitehouse once start a lobby group titled Clean Up National Television before having the unfortunate acronym pointed out and changed?

  15. Nick Gotts says


    No, she didn’t.

    If only there were some easy way of checking such alleged facts! Finding that link took me almost half a minute.
