Nap Time for Sleepy Don

Still another week like no other: the previous guy napping at his own criminal trial, the current guy seeing his polling numbers nudge upwards with an economy that the Wall Street Journal calls “The Envy of the World”, and a stunning tipping point in a major Michigan political scandal:

  • Attorney General Nessel stuns Lansing with criminal indictments of former House Speaker Lee Chatfield and his wife. We’ll talk with outspoken campaign finance reform advocate Bob LaBrant.
  • Democrats, as expected, win the 2 special elections to fill state House vacancies, restoring the Dem’s trifecta control of state government.
  • More campaign finance shenanigans, with our Mark Brewer hot on the trail of the malefactors.

In national political news –

Our focus is the story of the week (and maybe the year) in Michigan: a 13-count indictment of former House Speaker Lee Chatfield.
