Detroit, Flint Invalidate Voter's Choice
TPTB have dug in their heels, rather than follow in Ann Arbor's footsteps.
What recourse do the citizens have? They can appeal to neither the state nor FedGov, since both entities would side with the city council.
It will be interesting to see a suit filed in any branch of the court system. The judge will have a hot potato in his hands.
Where's this headed? How will it be resolved? Any guesses?
I wrote a blog.
The State represents violence in a concentrated and organized form. ~Mahatma Gandhi
The 'social contract' is to the politician what 'original sin' is to the priest. ~Don
The vision of the helpful and protective state is the most pervasive and counter-productive ideology in the world today. ~Don
Americans are so enamored of equality they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.~Alexis de Tocqueville
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.~Unknown
I tend to blame the Feds for Don, actually.
If they'd get it right, we wouldn't need Don pointing out that they'd gotten it wrong.

Here's a hint for the people of those cities, vote out the mayor and put someone else in that will follow through with this, and make it known that if he doesn't, his ass will be out quickly as well.
