THREAD: Republicans in multiple states are using their #lameduck legislative sessions to cheat the system in a blatant attempt to entrench their own power and undermine the will of the voters. Craziness has been going down in WI, MI, NC, and OH. Let’s dig in: 1/
Last week, Wisconsin passed measures to cut early voting and strip powers from the incoming Dem Governor @Tony4WI & Attorney General @JoshKaulWI. This was after Republicans lost all statewide offices in November. #WIPowerGrab. #WisconsinisWatching 2/
If that sounds desperate and shady to you, oh, it was. The GOP was literally handing out copies of their hastily written bills and Dems had to beg for time to read them before voting literally in the middle of the night. (I know because I was up waiting all night!) 3/

Like it or not, proposal 2 passed in Michigan and our Constitution will be amended. It’s a very good idea but too vaguely executed. There are measures that can firm up the integrity of this new system of drawing Michigan congressional districts.

This newly formed committee is based on political leanings, looking to strike a balance. Of the 13 members, there are to be 4 republicans, 4 democrats and 5 independents*.
Sounds great right? Nice and politically diverse, a poly-partisan committee of 13 selected citizens.
*independents do not affiliate with either of the 2 major parties or no party at all.

Great show today on @wjrradio, @newsGuy760 had on Katie Fahey with @NotPoliticians discussing proposal 2. In case you missed it 👇

Following are my thoughts on the interview... Im against this BTW.
Katie seems very passionate for her cause. That is always to be admired in individuals. A few things really stuck out, as red flags, in today’s interview for me.

(I won't be don't that, sorry. ❌🚫❌)
First, absent from the conversation is both chambers in Michigan’s congress and Governor HAVE TERM LIMITS.

This is important when it’s said people are trying to remain in office. Can’t gerrymander beyond existing term limits.

Neutralizes one of the main points right there

#Michigan prop 2 sounds good on the surface... There are concerns as we dive in.
The stickler for me, these 12 unelected officials, with self identified political affiliations, "independents" in majority... Cant be removed 👇

In my experience, a moderate is a liberal that likes to hunt and an independent is a liberal that is lying to themselves.

I'm concerned with the vagueness of the make up of this group... And it's effective permanence, with zero accountability to voters or politicians alike.
Seeing how we have a 3 term limit (6 years) in the Michigan house and 2 terms in the Michigan senate (8 years)

Perhaps not up ending what is not really a problem is the wiser approach. Yes.

I'm a no on Michigan's #Prop2
