BOXING MATCH

June 27, 2018

 

As if the Larry Nassar mess wasn’t nasty enough (the former MSU doc and Team USA gymnastics doctor convicted of sexually assaulting dozens of young gymnasts), two state Representatives who hope to face off against one another in November to be the Congressman for the 11th District nearly came to blows (figuratively) in May over legislation that would allow retroactive lawsuits in sexual assault cases. Rep. Klint Kesto (R-Commerce, West Bloomfield) chairs the House committee that spent weeks debating the legislation when the House shortened a window the Senate approved, and basically eliminated a provision allowing retroactive lawsuits for abuse. Tim Greimel (D-Auburn Hills) accused Kesto of caving in to Michigan Catholic Conference lobbyists to “protect pedophile priests who’ve been criminally convicted of sexually abusing children over the victims.” As you can imagine, that didn’t go over well with Kesto, who accused Greimel of fighting in the gutter, and is “scratching and clawing to find relevance” in the congressional race. Ouch.
