A federal judge has blocked Michigan's new ban on straight-party voting, a law that was passed by Republicans but criticized by Democrats as a way to discourage turnout among minorities. Judge Gershwin Drain signed an injunction Thursday, a week after hearing arguments. The state attorney general's office, which is defending the law in court, says Michigan joined 39 other states in banning straight-party voting. The judge says that's irrelevant. 7/21/16

Gov. Snyder's criminal defense attorney fees continue to go up and up, and taxpayers are stuck with the bill. Sen. Ananich put it best in his recent editorial in the Detroit News: I can't help but imagine how many school nurses, home visits or healthy meals we could have provided to Flint families instead of paying for ineffective emergency managers and picking up the tab for the governor's legal fees. The people of Flint are still struggling to access clean, safe drinking water. We can only use filtered or bottled water, and the same lead pipes that contributed to our poisoning are still in use. How many of those pipes could we replace for $5 million?

Fellow Democrats: Apparently some people are going around saying that Sam Logan Khaleghi and I are Tea Party proponents. There are also insinuations that our club is a front for the Tea Party. Nothing could be further from the truth! If you have any direct knowledge of these defamatory statements, please contact me as soon as you can. Jonathan Warshay Chair, West Bloomfield/Lakes Area Democratic Club. Webmaster Note: the real tea party is at

It was an honor to have been one of the members of both of the delegations that visited Senators Stabenow & Peters' offices last year in support of the Iran Nuclear Deal! I'm thankful everyday to everyone that put forth their tireless efforts to make sure this most critical deal passed! I'm thankful for President Obama, Secretary Kerry & Under Secretary Wendy Sherman! (There are many to thank)! I'll be happy to call Senators Stabenow & Peters to express my gratitude & continued support of the deal! Jill Farber-Bramson
