We Will Make History if We Keep Our Eyes on the Prize.
Dana Nessel is running for Attorney General and not for CEO of some corporation. The stories that float up in the media and that are hyped by her opponents and organizations opposing her about staff turnover in her campaign are nothing more than a distraction. And it’s a distraction we should ignore between now and the election
Dana is a very passionate trial lawyer. If it was your rights, property or maybe your freedom at risk in a courtroom isn’t that exactly what you’d want, even expect from your lawyer. We call them “Advocates” after all. It’s no wonder that her Republican opponent is refusing to debate her. Hell, I’d refuse to debate her. She’d have him for lunch. And he’d have to defend some indefensible things like taking contributions from hate groups.
Aren’t those the very qualities we want in the People’s Attorney?
In an attack ad Michigan Republicans attempted to smear Dana because the law firm she was associated with provided legal representation to unpopular and controversial clients. The “Truth Squad” at Bridge Magazine had this to say about the ad
Misleading images and a blatant disregard for the role of defense attorneys earn the ad a rating of foul.
When it comes to standing up for civil rights, protecting the environment, safeguarding senior citizens, or protecting consumer rights Dana is the clear and obvious choice.
The candidates will soon be making their “closing arguments”. Dana’s will be clear, forceful and, yes, passionate. Let’s listen and ignore the distractions.
Here’s a new ad. If you’d like to see on the airways consider making a contribution.
