City Council weighs in on Jackiegate

Marisol Bello of the Free Press reports in this POLI-BYTES ( at bottom of page ) that the Detroit City Council voted 5-4 in favor of a resolution supporting the City Clerk. They seem to have fallen for the line that because all the other cities in Michigan violate the law so should Detroit. The law in question is the requirement that applications for absentee ballots be requested in person. A Federal judge disagreed with the council and threw City Clerk Currie's 'it smacks of Jim Crow" case out of court.
