Citizens United threatens to sue Recall Rick group


Citizens United (yes, that Citizens United) has threatened to sue the group heading up the recall of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, forcing them to change their name from Michigan Citizens United to the Committee to Recall Rick Snyder.

Lansing— A group seeking to recall Gov. Rick Snyder is changing its name under threat of legal action, a spokesman said today.

Michigan Citizens United will change its name to the Committee to Recall Rick Snyder, spokesman Tim Kramer said.

The name change was the result of a threat of legal action by an existing group called Citizens United, he said.

“Even though we felt we could win, we felt it would be a waste of our time and resources,” Kramer said.
