Michigan Democrats file lawsuit to block Republicans from using foreclosure listings to question voters on polling day

Democrats have filed the suit in response to an article in the Michigan Messenger, which quoted Macomb County Republican Party Chairman James Carabelli as saying that GOP officials “will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses."

According to the Michigan Messenger, "The Michigan Republican Party is demanding, via press release, a retraction of the Michigan Messenger story Lose your house, lose your vote.” ... The story will not be retracted because Carabelli’s and Anuzis’ claims are without merit. The quotes were accurately reported. Melzer, the Michigan Messenger and the Center for Independent Media stand behind this story 100 percent."
