    The lib's at the Detroit Free Press (Detroit's liberal news paper) is making a big issue over a simple question on Michigan's August primary ballot.

    Apparently many people (Democrats) are confused by this question:

    "Are you a United States Citizen?" 

    According to Kathleen Gray, Detroit Free Press Staff Writer this question is creating confusion:
    Pat Selby, election counsel for Project Vote in Michigan, said she had been hearing from confused voters all day about the question.

    "Having the question on the box is a source of confusion. Election officials knew it wasn't to be enforced but individual poll workers didn't understand," she said. "And there were places where it was on the form and places where it wasn't on the form. Instructions should have come out from the Secretary of State right after the veto."

    In Detroit, the citizenship question was on the ballot application, because they were printed before Snyder's veto.

    Somehow, one gets the feeling the left is trying to set a precedent with today's overreaction.

    ...this haole who generated the confusion?


    H.B. 5061 and S.B. 803, sponsored by state Rep. Brad Jacobsen and state Sen. Darwin Booher, aimed to prevent voting fraud by requiring a voter to reaffirm U.S. citizenship before receiving a ballot and requiring photo ID when picking up an absentee ballot from a city office. Snyder said he appreciates the issue of ensuring voters are eligible and U.S. citizens, however this legislation could create voter confusion among absentee voters.

    Gov. JenniRick Snydholm: Jocelyn Benson's best friend.
