You gotta love the organization's name: Michigan Citizen's United. The Citizens United ruling that allowed the conservative Supreme Court to give a cement building the right of an American Vote and right to donate to a political candidate is what inspired the name of this Progressive effort. The irony is not lost on them.
There seems to be ample numbers of Michigan Voters on Daily Kos to warrent bringing this news to the diary room.You have to sign in person. This recall petition does not allow for online signing. So follow Michigan Citzens United, "like" their Facebook Page ("Recall Governor Rick Snyder"). And when the time comes, drop your John Hancock.
Michigan Citizens United needs 807,000 verifiable signatures, according to The Detroit News. So pay attention and get involved!
Had it with failed republican economics? Had it with watching every step forward Progressives have made being pushed three steps back, like high speed rail initiatives and motioon picture industry tax credits? Sick of watching Snyder use his office like a tyrranical ruler overthrowing whatever city governments he wishes to bust unions and break up Progressive influence?
Signing begins July 1st 2011.
