SHORT TAKES

Former U.S. head of education and generous underwriter of conservative causes Betsy DeVos has made it official, she is not running for governor. Republican state party co-chair and Milford resident Meshawn Maddock posted about the Pillow Guy’s bust of an event to show “proof” of the Big Steal: “Watching my friend Mike Lindell on FrankSpeech.com right now! Shouldn’t we all want to learn everything we can about election integrity? I say YES.” A new dark money group led by some veteran GOP heavy-hitters (American Action Network) is dumping $400,00 into the districts of Oakland Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin in hopes of toppling the pair with its television campaign tied to the $3.5 trillion budget bill pending in D.C. Neither member of congress has taken a position yet. Lastly, Citizens for Equality, Fairness and Justice, the sketchy group fighting to prevent expansion of the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to codify the rights of the LGBTQ+ community,  is almost totally underwritten by donations ($204,175 or the near majority of its budget) by the Michigan Catholic Conference, considered the “official voice of the Catholic Church on matters of public policy.”
