The Republican War on Democracy Continues!


Republicans in Lansing plan on reintroducing a bill to amend election law so that electoral votes will be chosen from each congressional district instead of from the state at large (see HB 5184’11).

Republicans have already rigged the election of State Representatives, State Senators and U.S. Congressional Representatives by gerrymandering districts.

I have received three calls in the last week from (734) 408-1739 in Dexter, MI asking me to call Sen. Randy Richardville (R-Monroe) and ask him to support legislation that would end Winner Take All in Michigan. The message suggests that Winner Take All robbed over 2 million people who voted for Mitt Romney of their representation in the Electoral College. The phone call was paid for by the National Tea Party Victory Fund.
