6 Republicans cancel appearance at LWV event in Traverse City
It might as well be a Democrat forum.
Republican commission candidates in Grand Traverse County Michigan are through with the league of women voters.The league has always been ‘suspect’ but appeared to be respectful, and provided a forum to all candidates with no spoken bias.
However, after CEO of the national League of Women Voters was arrested for engaging in civil disobedience protesting the Kavanaugh nomination, it was clear the illusion of neutrality has been blown. There can be no way that the LWV can be trusted to perform such informational services without bias, and that their ‘neutrality’ is for IRS purposes only.
Multiple news outlets have reported that the Michigan Supreme Court in a 4-3 decision upheld the democratic party “independent/grassroots” Voters Not Politicians petition initiative to create a non-partisan commission to redraw every voting district in Michigan.
In writing for the majority Justices Viviano, McCormack, Bernstein & Clement said;
“Here, that approach leads us to conclude that a voter-initiated amendment under Const 1963, art 12, § 2 is permissible if it does not significantly alter or abolish the form or structure of our government, making it tantamount to creating a new constitution.”
Yeah that’s sounds great on paper, but exactly how did they intend on accomplishing this nigh impossible feat?
We had no time to reschedule it, to notify people of its rescheduling, and to find the personnel to handle another date. We also weren’t entirely sure that Barrett would not show up for the full forum. I do regret that I didn’t have a chance to let Theresa Abed know the circumstances, but everything was speculative until the evening of the forum itself.
So yeah, Jacquelyn Tennis was barking up the wrong tree.
