Democratic Party says it wants to recall DeRoche
(2008-01-28)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Add another name to the list of threatened
recalls among Michigan state lawmakers.
The Michigan Democratic Party says it will try to recall House
Republican leader Craig DeRoche of Novi.
Roughly a dozen state lawmakers have been threatened with
recalls in recent months but few of the efforts have made much
progress.
The stated reason on the DeRoche recall petition is that he
voted against bills that would make it easier to sue drug companies
in Michigan. Dozens of lawmakers voted against those bills.
A DeRoche spokeswoman says it's the latest effort by Democrats
to distract attention from tax increases made at a time families
and businesses can least afford them.
