Ruh Roh Rorge! Monica Conyers used to be on the pension board, I think she just got out of prison for taking bribes. Can she be tried for more crimes, or is this double jeopardy?
Just outlaw public employee unions and the economy will head up like a rocket.

I’ve said all along that this would be the direction an emergency manager would need to take. Slowly increase the pressure and when the rats break cover, start stomping them.
I think we’re about 2 months away from seeing the first criminal charges.

Anytime you charge a RAT with anything its double jeopardy!

Has Detroit declared bankruptcy?
If not, why not?

Just oulaw automatic deductions for union dues.
Make members pay them.
Outlaw mandatory public unions. NOBODY should have to be a member of a union.
