The Recall Hammer…

Originally published in the Grand Rapids Press, November 12,  2011

Basic summary: A Republican State Representative, Paul Scott of Grand Blanc, was successfully recalled from office this past election. The effort to recall him was largely funded by the Michigan Teachers Union (the MEA), which skews heavily toward the Democrats. Republican-leaning special interest groups have vowed revenge. For analogies, I flirted with Pandora’s Box and Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots, but eventually settled on the hammer.
