Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and union allies are trying to woo another Democrat to campaign for Michigan governor amid concerns about the viability of front-runner Gretchen Whitmer, Bridge Magazine has learned.
This month, Duggan reached out to U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, Bridge learned from six sources with knowledge of the effort, including three party officials. In a January meeting described by one observer as a “full court press,” Duggan, United Auto Workers President Dennis Williams, other union leaders, and powerful Detroit pastor the Rev. Wendell Anthony tried to persuade Peters to enter the campaign, promising substantial help with fundraising, the sources said.
He posted a screenshot of Epstein’s account “liking” a David Duke tweet and a tweet from “Baked Alaska” who is apparently a neo-Nazi.
Dillon then sent out a series of tweets about how Epstein “really likes David Duke and neo-Nazis.”
Epstein sent out a press release explaining that her twitter account was hacked yesterday. She was able to back this up with a screenshot of an email that twitter sent her. She said in a statement:
The Michigan Democratic Party is in complete disarray after being charged a $500,000 fine by the FEC. Mark Brewer, who was the Chair at the time, is now the legal counsel for Democrat candidate for Governor, Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer is also no stranger to campaign finance violations, has been in trouble for using PAC funds to pay for her website in 2012.
First, a bombshell report detailed how the Michigan Democratic Party is in disarray, faced with numerous corruption accusations while Gretchen Whitmer, the frontrunner for the Democrat gubernatorial nomination, stood idly by. Now, the Michigan Democratic Party is once again in turmoil, as the Detroit Free Press revealed today that the Party is being fined an astounding $500,000 for shoddy fundraising practices – a fine that “far exceeds the average penalty levied against candidates and political organizations over the years.”
