June 7, 2013

As a high school yearbook photographer, I once found myself stranded at the opening of an auto plant in Flat Rock, Michigan.

Michigan Senate Democrats
March 26, 2013

Schuette grandstands for Grand Jury investigation of tainted steroid needles, continues to ignore Michigan’s drug immunity law he orchestrated

LANSING – Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing) took Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to task today for his call for a Grand Jury investigation of the medical suppliers that shipped tainted steroid injections that harmed countless Michigan citizens. Whitmer did not discredit the issue itself, but did take offense at the Attorney General’s hypocritical outrage and fight for justice in the context of Michigan’s one-in-the-nation drug immunity law that prevents patients and their families from seeking justice for faulty prescription drugs.
