Conservative group Americans for Prosperity papers homes with fake eviction notices
The state director of the conservative group Americans for Prosperity offered no apologies today for papering homes in Detroits Delray district Monday with fake eviction notices.

Bearing the words Eviction Notice in large type, the bogus notices told homeowners their properties could be taken by the Michigan Department of Transportation to make way for the New International Trade Crossing bridge project. The NITC is the subject of debate in Lansing, and Americans for Prosperity is lobbying heavily against it.

4. Thanks for posting this...
I didn't know that Americans for Prosperity had any connection to the war against the NITC.

The amount of TV ads run by the DIBC are insane.

5. Last month's Teabagger rally in Lansing showed some carrying anti-public bridge signs
That was the first I saw of a Koch/Maroun alliance.

7. Interesting, but not surprising.
If you look under the rocks, you will likely find one of those kochroaches.
