Cong. Moolenaar was one of four Michigan Congressman who signed onto the Texas AG’s Supreme Court lawsuit claiming election results in Michigan and other battleground states were unconstitutional. However, he did not vote to support challenges to the Electoral College vote in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t vote for impeachment. Michigan Republican Congressmen Fred Upton and freshman Peter Meijer (Justin Amash’s old seat) did. The latter, in interviews on MSNBC and CBC, said he acted as the President failed to take any responsibility for the attack.
The Michigan Legislature opened their 2021 Legislative Session on January 13th. Rep. Pat Outman, 70th, is serving his first term. He is the son of Rick Outman, our State Senator. He says his emphasis is going to be on infrastructure, including rural broadband, and skilled trades. He and his father run an excavating business. He is calling for the Governor not to extend the indoor dining ban past January 15th and proposes a ‘Dine In Day’ on the 16th to support restaurants.
Graham Filler, 93th, is starting his second term in office. He blames Gov. Whitmer for the poor rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in the state. He’s scheduled a tele-town hall on Thursday, January 21st, to discuss vaccine distribution. The event begins at 7pm. Participants can dial in at 877-820-7831 and hit #298738 when prompted.
