Michigan GOP Board of State Canvassers member Norman Shinkle: No hero for democracy

As they stare at electoral defeat, Michigan Republicans continue The Big Grift of their supporters

As lawsuits to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s historical presidential victory get shot down one by one like ducks in a shooting gallery, Republicans in Michigan are determined to keep their supporters riled up into a frothy lather by convincing them, without evidence or honesty, that the Biden-Harris win along with Sen.

So, Now What? Let’s Focus on Public Education and Internet Access

In the aftermath of the most consequential election in our lifetimes, I thought I’d take this opportunity to offer some free advice for state Democratic parties interested in attracting even more new voters and turning more red state legislatures blue: Let’s put a lot more focus on two issues that are critically important to building a stronger, more informed voter […]
